Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does LifeCell™ work?
A: LifeCell™ works on 2 levels.
1. Level one is the LifeCell™ “instant effect”. Since the human eye can only see the shadow of a wrinkle, Lifecell™ contains light-reflecting micro-technology to reduce the appearance of wrinkles instantly. In other words – billions of microscopic, three-dimensional nanoprisms bounce natural light into the wrinkles, eliminating the shadow created by the wrinkles, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
2. Level two is the long-term effect. By using LifeCell™ consistently for an extended period of time, you will notice a substantial reduction of typical age signs including wrinkles, fine-lines, sagging skin, and discoloration.
Q: How do I apply LifeCell™?
A: To activate LifeCell™ and release its key ingredients, warm a small amount between your fingertips. Gently dab LifeCell™ onto clean, dry skin, and massage a thin layer over forehead, cheeks, fragile eye area, lips, and the lower neckline, finishing off with the skin behind the ears. LifeCell’s™ active ingredients penetrate the skin immediately, leaving your skin youthful, smooth, and silky. Use day and night for a lifetime.
Q: How do I use LifeCell™ underneath my eyes?
A: Using the ring or pinky finger, dot LifeCell™ along the edge of your orbital bone (located directly under the eye). Two dots should be sufficient to cover the area. Gently pat the cream into the skin, staying around the edge of the bone. Warning! LifeCell™ is not intended to be applied directly on the eyelids! If application reaches the delicate areas of the lash line, swelling and irritation could occur.
Q: How long will it take to see results?
A: Many customers observe the short-term effects of LifeCell™ within the first few days of use. These effects include softening of wrinkles, tightening of the skin, and balanced skin moisture. However, the long-term effects of LifeCell™ are often not noticeable for up to 4-8 weeks. Long term effects may include increased skin luminosity, enhanced tightening of the skin, age spot reduction, and the deep-layer collagen stimulating effects which LifeCell™ is famous for.
Q: Is there anything else I should do while taking LifeCell™?
A: As far as skincare products go, LifeCell™ is all you need to reduce the appearance of current age signs, while preventing and lessening the severity of future age symptoms. However, if your aim is to live an anti-aging lifestyle, other areas of your well-being such as your diet will need to be structured accordingly.

Q: Are there any side effects from using LifeCell™?
A: To the best of our understanding, there are no known short or long-term side effects from applying LifeCell™. Apart from being 100% paraben-free, LifeCell™ is also certified 100% cruelty-free by PETA. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)
Q: Does LifeCell™ have any known drug interactions?
A: No, there are no known drug interactions.
Q: Do I need a prescription to buy LifeCell™?
A: No, LifeCell is not considered a prescription medication by the FDA and is therefore not regulated by their guidelines.
Q: Is LifeCell™ safe to use during pregnancy?
A: Yes, LifeCell™ is safe to use during pregnancy.
Q: Can I use other products with LifeCell™?
A: Yes, although LifeCell™ is an “all-in-one” treatment, it can be used with other common facial products. We do, however, recommend testing skin care product combinations on the inside of your forearm before applying to the face, to check for any adverse reaction. If you are considering using a prescription skin care product along with LifeCell™, we suggest you first receive approval from a physician.
Q: How long will a tube of LifeCell™ last?
A: One 2.54 oz. tube of LifeCell™ lasts 2 months.
Q: Is LifeCell™ only for women?
A: No, LifeCell™ is made for both men and women, and works equally for either sex.
Q: I am a smoker…will LifeCell™ still work for me?
A: Yes, LifeCell™ is still effective for people who smoke. However, we do recommend eliminating the use of tobacco as smoking dramatically decreases the production of collagen, causing wrinkles to form easier.
Q: If LifeCell™ is an “all-in-one” treatment, how come it doesn’t contain SPF?
A: We understand the importance of sun protection, as sun damage is the leading cause of accelerated aging. With that said, it was crucial for us to leave SPF out of LifeCell’s™ active ingredients because the chemicals in SPF would interfere with the potent antioxidants found in LifeCell™. *For best results, we recommend applying a SPF cream AFTER applying LifeCell™ and allowing your skin to fully absorb the LifeCell™ cream.
Q: Why does LifeCell™ come in a squeeze tube instead of a jar or a pump dispenser?
A: During the creation of LifeCell™, numerous tubes, jars, and dispensers were tested and taken into consideration. There are two main reasons we do not use a jar. The first reason is a jar forces a large amount of product to be constantly exposed to open air. This open air oxidizes the cream, which would degrade various active ingredients, and lessen the effectiveness of LifeCell™. The other reason we do not use a jar is cross-contamination, as putting fingers into a jar of cream each day is an easy way to spread bacteria into unused product.
A pump dispenser, although a slight improvement from a jar, still has its flaws. A substantial amount of product stays in the container and is wasted when a pump dispenser is used. Pump dispensers also get stuck very easily, unlike a squeeze tube.
*With a squeeze tube, LifeCell™ doesn’t get oxidized, contaminated or wasted. You will benefit from the first drop to the last.
Q: Does Lifecell™ work on all skin colors?
A: Yes, Lifecell™ works on all complexions.
Q: Is LifeCell™ hypoallergenic?
A: LifeCell™ has been proven hypoallergenic according to dermatological assessment.
Q: Is LifeCell™ paraben-free?
A: Yes, LifeCell™ is paraben-free.
Q: Why is LifeCell™ fragrance-free?
A: People are attracted to a pleasing fragrance, but fragrance and great skin care don’t mix. Fragrances are known to cause irritation and possible inflammation to the skin. Research has also established that fragrances in skin care products are among the most common causes of allergic reactions.
