Beauty Boost

Posted: Updated:

WSVN -- Valerie Newhoff is doing everything she can to fight the aging process.

Valerie Newhoff: "I want to face it head on."

Facing it means working out every day, trying the latest lotions and potions claiming to target wrinkles and sagging skin.

Valerie Newhoff: "$85 cream in a little bottle like this. There are products that you use that are very, very costly and they're not delivering on what they say they're going to do."

But dermatologists are buzzing about new anti-aging skin care lines available over-the-counter.

Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik: "I am excited about it. I think this technology has great future potential."

Neutrogena, Roc and Aveeno have developed product lines that focus on what's called bioelectricity.

Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik: "Biolelectricity is something that runs through our bodies all the time."

We don't actually feel bioelectricity, but it sends various signals through our bodies that lead to more production of collagen and elastin, the key players that keep our skin youthful.

Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik: "As we age, there are less and less bioelectricity running through our bodies, and we also have decrease in collagen and elastin, which leads to signs of aging."

The new skin care line's actually deliver electricity that simulates the body's own natural bioelectricity levels.

It's a two step process.

Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik: "One is a topical gel that contains energized particles caleld zinc and copper, and that creates a tiny little battery. Add to tha,t a moisturizer and that jumpstarts the battery going and that reenergizes the skin."

Dermatologists say the products deliver fast results as well as long term changes.

Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik: "Some of the results, like skin smoothness and softness of the skin are going be immediate, but with continued use, patients will also notice decrease in discoloration, less wrinkles, as well as less saggy skin."

Valerie was one of the first to try out some of the products, and likes the way they feel.

Valerie Newhoff: "The consistency of the product is very smooth, it's almost like powder."

And so far she feels like it's given her the beauty boost she needs.

Valerie Newhoff: "I feel smooth, it feels more supple. It does make you radiate. It makes you feel comfortable in your skin."

Diana Diaz: "The products are now on store shelves and cost between $25 and $50."
