Doctor Says Pro-X by Olay is an Effective OTC Anti-Aging Cream

olay pro xFor the millions of women who simply don’t have the budget for plastic or cosmetic surgery to get rid of wrinkles, over the counter anti-aging creams may be the next best thing.

There are now thousands of different anti-aging and skincare products on the market, and many contain a number of wrinkle-defying ingredients.  However, only a few actually work.  While some promise to repair skin from inside out, researchers say this is impossible, because these creams are too thick to penetrate the skin at a deeper level and do not truly make a difference.

Still, there is one cream that delivers prescription results, and it costs a fraction of most anti-aging procedures at the doctor’s office.  Dr. Mary Lupo, a dermatologist from New Orleans, says that the Pro-X skincare line from Oil of Olay is one of the most effective, non-prescription creams on the market for aging skin.

The cream is designed to tighten and tone up the skin overnight, and contains several anti-aging peptides, vitamins, and a compound that mimics the effects of Retin-A.  Overall, this cream helps to heal damaged skin, and also delivers a generous dose of moisture to the top layer of skin.

According to Dr. Elizabeth McBurney, a dermatologist in Slidell, Louisiana, Pro-X is effective for “taking away the brown spots. It can help stimulate new collagen. It can be used on very fine lines.  Now,  it’s not the same as going to get a prescription for Retin-A,  but it does offer our patients something that they can buy over the counter that’s fairly easy to use.” (Source:

The Oil of Olay Pro-X line may truly be a remarkable anti-aging product for the times, and continues to deliver impressive results in clinical studies, and is getting rave reviews from the general public. The Olay Professional Pro-X Anti-Aging Starter Protocol Kit that contains the Age Repair Lotion, Wrinkle Smoothing Cream and Eye Restoration Complex currently retails for $68, but is available at a discount from select online retailers.
