Let’s be honest, there’s no shortage of skincare treatments on the today — everywhere you look there’s another cream promising amazing results, as long as you can pay a pretty penny. It can be difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff with so much white noise coming in. So we’ve attempted to take an unbiased look at many of the treatments on the market to evaluate them for what they really provide.
An Introduction to Maxilift
Maxilift Instant Wrinkle Reducer’s claim to fame comes from the constant play the product gets on late night infomercials and other “As Seen on TV” advertisements. The product is pitched as a “two-minute” face lift, in other words an easy alternative to expensive and painful cosmetic surgeries. Among the benefits advertized, Maxilift promises respite from crow’s feet, wrinkles, creases and sagging, all within minutes, definitely a great tagline for a TV advertisement.
Despite some extensive research, we weren’t able to find a dedicated site for Maxilift. Instead, the only place the product seems to be available for purchase is the “As Seen on TV” website where it’s sold alongside a vast array of diverse products ranging from electronics to music CDs. Some searching on YouTube did lead us to an older infomercial advertizing the product, but the website domain the ad links to, is no longer active.
Maxilift: A Closer Look
It’s difficult to take a more in-depth look at Maxilift as no detailed information is provided. While the product’s page makes many amazing claims; stating that it will reduce or eliminate most visible signs of aging within minutes and that the effect will last for up to 8 hours, there doesn’t seem to be any linked reports or ingredient checklists that can help us confirm these benefits.
Maxilift claims to be clinically tested and proven, and the infomercial we saw did have a board certified cosmetician proclaiming that it was sound treatment. However, without any published studies or formula compositions at hand, we can’t independently verify any of this information unfortunately.
Of the three reviews written on the As Seen on TV website two are negative, claiming that while the product does create visible anti-wrinkle effects – these are localized and difficult to maintain.
Maxilift: Is Seeing Believing?
Maxilift seems to be a very difficult product from long-term anti-aging solutions such as DermaSet. It does not seem to create a slow visible benefit; rather the short-term wrinkle reduction provided disappears after the described time frame. So, while seeing believing, there’s more to the story than meets the eye.

Should You Buy It?
If you can source Maxilift, then we recommend buying it — only if you have a one-night event to go to and you want to look your best. Even then, we can’t verify the safety of the ingredients being used in the formula. For anything long-term, you’re best served looking to higher end brands like DermaSet and Stemuderm, they might be more expensive, but the anti-aging benefits you’re getting will last you well into the future. After all, you get what you pay for.
