Question CP and Exfol Serum

How well do the CP and Exfol serums from Skinbiology work with leveling tiny "dibits" in the skin??

From personal experience the combo of Exfol Serum and CP serum has definitely smoothed out(though not completely) the indentations I had. I have been using them for about 2-3 months now, and I plan to stick to it religiously( only a quarter of the 1 oz quantity has been used up) Do not expect rapid improvements although some people see results much faster than others. Dr.Pickart ( the person who came up with these products) suggests a 6- month period to see the best results. I also use the Trireduction cream sometimes and plan to get their new and strongest copper peptide product, Super-Cop.

from what i've read, you're supposed to use the exfol serum in the morning after you wash your face and use the cp serum overnight after washing

Yes, the recommended way is to apply Exfol in the morning and CP at night, the reason being that the CP serum is blue in color. But if you have nowhere to go, and don't mind the slight blue tinge, you can apply the CP in the morning following the Exfol ( give a gap of about 15 mins). I know of some users who use the CP serum twice a day! Just remember to RUB in the Exfol Serum, this helps to dissolve the scar/damaged tissue.

Don't forget to browse their very-informative site ( it's difficult to navigate though).

Thanks so much for your reply. I have been browsing this board for quite some time and have learned so much. Do you use any topical prescriptions? I've used just about everything. My Derm now has me using Plexion
face wash and also a face mask. I think it's helping, but the red marks just won't go away. Any idea how long
it takes to see an improvement?

Sue, the only topical prescription I used was Benzamycin, but it was almost useless. Right now the BCP Yasmin is keeping me zit-free. For the red marks, I am relying on the CP and Exfol Serum, and weekly at-home 30% glycolic acid (an AHA) peels. I have also just started using Alpha Hydrox 10%AHA enhanced creme,(a drugstore product).Using all this AHA is speeding up the results than just the Exfol Serum ( which is a BHA). But since I've just recently started using the AHAs in my regimen, I can provide a reliable opinion only after a couple of months.
I know nothing about the Plexion,I'm sorry. With the skinbiology products, I'd say you should start seeing improvements after a few weeks(3-4) of use, but it can take longer ( I am the type who has slow results). But don't give up on it.

legallyblonde, I think your indentations are far better than mine ( it's very noticeable even if I stretch my skin or smile). So, if I can see definite results, then surely you'll see great improvements.

I use a AquaGlycolic astringent sometimes before I use the CP serum.
