Retinol, Meet your Match: Pure Youth Serum Featuring MIMIXYL™ Complex

Lancer Retinol Youth Serum (2)

Clinically proven to signal the skin’s own retinoid receptors to create new skin cells, collagen and elastic fibers, retinol has been the gold standard for anti-aging skincare treatments for over 25 years. Few treatments work as quickly and effectively as retinol, however this anti-aging crusader has some big drawbacks (outlined below).

Enter Younger: Pure Youth Serum. Dr. Lancer sought to solve the retinol conundrum by developing a treatment that is as effective as retinol, but did not have its incidence of irritation and other side effects. The result is Younger: Pure Youth Serum, and more specifically, MIMIXYL™, the technology platform developed by Dr. Lancer that powers the product. Retinol has finally met its match.

Here’s a snapshot comparisons of these two powerful anti-aging ingredients:


  • Helps to create new skin cells, collagen and elastic fibers.
  • Works quickly and effectively.

However, it is also:

  • Irritating and drying to skin.
  • Not recommended to be used while pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Can increase oil production for some men.
  • Very unstable and reacts with light and oxygen.


  • Signals the skin to produce new collagen and elastic tissue
  • Activates the skin’s retinoid receptors, thereby stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and new skin cells.
  • Improves skin tone and elasticity
  • Lessens the number and depth of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Calms inflammation
  • Has none of the side effects of retinol

Clinical results show that MIMIXYL™:

  • Reduces deep wrinkles by 28%
  • Reduces skin roughness by 35%
  • Increases skin elasticity by 13%
  • Increases skin density by 25%

There’s much more we could tell you about this incredible serum, but seeing and feeling it in action on your own skin is the best evidence of all. The proof is in the results – and we know you’ll love them. Order a bottle today.
