Has the thought of getting fillers injections cross your mind?
I’ve contemplated fillers injections myself but just like many other women out there (two thirds to be exact), resorting to injections and needles just isn’t something that entices me. It’s costly and to be honest, I fear of the ‘gone wrong’ potential or worst, perhaps developing some terrible allergic reaction to it. However, with the arrival of my 35th birthday this year, I’d be the first to admit that skin aging has become a priority concern.
If you’re in the same camp as me, I’d like to introduce the newest addition to my vanity – the FILORGA NCTF-REVERSE® three step Cellular Anti-Aging Program.
The History of FILORGA NCTF®
In 1978, Laboratoires FILOGRA founded an injectable polyrevitalization solution – NCTF®, New Cellular Treatment Factor, containing over 50 anti-aging active ingredients. This solution (meant to be injected into your skin) was formulated to reactivate cellular activities deep down in order to restore skin quality by targeting five signs of aging: complexion evenness, skin tone, pore size, hydration level, and micro relief.
Since the inception of this formula, over 10 million bottles have been sold globally and leading aesthetic doctors prefer NCTF® as their treatment of choice.
New Innovation – NCTF-REVERSE®
Fast forward nearly 40 years later, FILORGA, after three years of research, has found a way to transform the NCTF® injectable into a topical treatment that will drive similar benefits (correction in wrinkles, evenness, radiance, tone, and pores) but without paying a visit to an aesthetician and the use of needles!
The NCTF-REVERSE® Cellular Anti-Aging Program has three hero products, each containing the equivalent of one vial of injectable treatment. Though you will see results by just using one of the three, but by combining the entire routine, you will maximize the performance and your skin will also experience a triple dosage of NCTF®.
Step 1: NCTF-ESSENCE® – This priming lotion, the first step to the routine, commonly seen in Asian beauty rituals is to be applied after cleansing and make-up removal and is targeted at hydration and detoxification. I had originally thought the texture of this ESSENCE would resemble that of a liquid toner, however, I would describe the texture closer to a fresh milky solution.
Step 2: NCTF-INTENSIVE® – The next step is the application of this high absorption serum. This serum is a booster and has active ingredients formulated to treat and correct wrinkles (retinol, collagen, and elastin), improve firmness, and increase radiance with natural vitamin C. The serum is quickly absorbed upon application.
Step 3: NCTF-REVERSE® – The program is completed by this last product, a day care cream to seal in moisture and contains additional vitamins such as A, H, and E for peeling, restructuring, and detoxifying benefits. At first touch, this cream feels like a thick greek yogurt. And on application, it is highly absorbable and instantly seals and melts onto the skin.
I learned recently that hydration wasn’t a problematic concern for my skin, therefore, I’m relying on this three step program to help me proactively manage my skin’s firmness and fighting against early signs of wrinkles.
I began my three step program approximately 7 days ago and have seen efficacy particularly in the elasticity of my skin as well as the diminishing appearance of pores. There really isn’t a scientific way to describe this, but overall, my skin feels more “plump”.
Pretty in Pink
You may think that the slightly pink colour was an intentional packaging decision by FILORGA (all three products are slightly pink in colour), but believe it or not, this pink hue is 100% natural due to the very high concentration of NCTF®. Clearly, it was a match-made in heaven for those of you who appreciate pink and pretty as much as I do.
If you’re considering an in chair treatment that involves needles, I’d like you to reconsider by at the least, trying this new innovative program by FILORGA. The products range between $75-$120 which is a fraction of the investment you’d be making for a one time visit.
