Japanese Mejikara Anti-Wrinkle Glasses:

“The idea behind this product is that pressure can prevent or correct wrinkles. This clearly does not work, especially for dynamic wrinkles around eyes. The only way to prevent or correct wrinkles in this area is with botox, dysport or xeomin,” says  Gary Goldenberg, MD, Assistant Professor, Dermatology and Pathology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

Placental Collegen Mask:

“The idea here is based on the presence of stem cells in the placenta. Unfortunately, putting stem cells and collagen on your skin does not enable these to be absorbed and provide any benefit,” says Dr. Goldenberg.
