The Eye Cream is a prescription, under eye cream that actually works to brighten, tighten, and diminish dark circles.

The under-the-eye area is tough to treat. You want to stimulate collagen here to diminish dark circles and reduce bagginess. However, this is the thinnest skin in the body and retinoids like tretinoin often cause irritation.  So, we developed a formulation that anchors on prescription estriol, an estrogen hormone that naturally occurs in the body. Estriol is proven to increase collagen production, just like retinoids. And because it is topical, there are no systemic side effects.

By promoting new collagen formation, prescription estriol powerfully:

  • Increases firmness and reduces under-eye bags
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves texture
  • Increase moisture and natural hyaluronic acid production

What is estriol?

First, it’s important to know that "estrogen" is a term for three different hormones: Estrone (E1), Estradiol (E2), and Estriol (E3). When the term "estrogen" is used, most of the time it refers to Estradiol (E2), which is the highest concentration --80%-- during a woman's reproductive years. Estriol (E3) makes up another 10% and Estrone (E1) makes up the last 10%.

Estriol (E3) is a “low potency” estrogen. Estriol is an ideal estrogen for topical use since it remains in the skin, rather than in the bloodstream.
