The highly active concentrate uses powerful peptides and hyaluronic acid to target surface imperfections, but appears to be too strong for sensitive or dry types


Contains advanced anti-aging technologies


May cause irritation or dryness

By Beverly C.

I am 55 years old and have maintained a consistent anti-aging skin regimen for many years. Growing up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, my teenage years were filled with too much time in the sun without even considering sunscreen.  However, this mistake is something that changed as I became aware of the benefits of using sunscreen and the damage of sun exposure.  I have combination skin with some dry areas now, but had an oilier complexion when I was younger.  In the past couple of years, I have developed melasma and hyperpigmentation due to sun exposure.  I also have some fine lines under the eyes and on my upper cheeks (consider them smile lines).

I applied Deciem Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age Serum ($38 in the shop) every morning and evening over both my face and neck for a month.  The brand boasts that this serum is for “multi-depth rehydration and visible reduction in lines and irregularities,” as well as promoting “visible plumping and texture regularity.”  The lightweight fluid contains five forms of hyaluronic acid, as well as an algae complex and saccharide, to balance hydration levels and strengthen the skin barrier to help prevent moisture loss.

Other active ingredients include copper lysinate/prolinate, an essential amino acid and cell communicating complex that is claimed to boost skin's own collagen I and III, as well as elastin production. Matrixyl Synthe'6 (palmitoyl tripeptide-38) is included to boosts the production of several types of collagen and the body’s natural hyaluronic acid.

I was so excited to evaluate my skin’s response to the promise of improved surface and below-surface hydration, fine lines and wrinkles, dynamic lines, sagginess and textural irregularities. However, I actually experienced dryness and redness at the beginning of my trial. While the redness subsided after three weeks, my skin continued to experience more dryness than normal.

I use retinol products but did not during this testing period so as to not affect the trial. I was surprised that the nonapeptide-3 retino-complex ingredient caused this redness and irritation to occur, as the company states that it is a “novel technology that promotes better visible anti-aging results than retinol with less irritation.” Sadly, I haven’t noticed any significant improvement in my lines or dark spots, so I don’t plan on ordering a bottle for future use.
