Our Full Review

Updated on: Sep 23, 2019

SculptMedix is an anti-aging face and neck cream that claims to reduce skin sagging and wrinkling to give your skin a younger, more vibrant look.

The key to this cream’s supposed effectiveness is its inclusion of something called epidermal growth factor (EGF), a “Nobel Prize winning technology” that helps your skin repair itself.

SculptMedix is part of the DermalMedix skincare line whose founder is Dr. David Watts, a Los Angeles-based doctor.

According to DermalMedix’s website, Watts is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an Army vet. His brand is responsible for other skincare products include VeinMedix, CrepeMedx, and Footmedix.

In this review, we’re going to talk about how the SculptMedix works, highlight the ingredients the product’s website says are important, talk about EGF and then review the pricing and return policies.

We’ll also take a few minutes to compare SculptMedix to other anti-aging creams.

How SculptMedix Works

According to the product’s website, applying the cream is a pretty simple process. You’ll want to clean and dry your skin first. Then, take a dime-sized amount of the cream and apply it to your neck and face twice a day.

The product's directions say you’ll want to use an “upward circular motion” to rub the cream into your skin.

These twice-a-day treatments should, the SculptMedix site says:

  • Firm and lift your skin
  • Tone down fine lines and wrinkles
  • Help your body make collagen

These claimed benefits materialize based on the ingredients included in a jar of SculptMedix. In fact, DermalMedix says that three main ingredients are responsible for the anti-aging properties they say the cream has:

  • EGF
  • Oligosaccharides
  • Sodium hyaluronate

Each one of these ingredients has a certain set of benefits that DermalMedix assigned to them. For example, they say that EGF “increases blood flow, supports skin cell regeneration and promotes collagen production”.

They say that oligosaccharides “give you immediate lifting and tightening effects” and that sodium hyaluronate makes your skin supple and moisturizes it.

Pro tip: Each jar of cream is 2.1 fl. Oz. and should last you around 30 days.

EGF, Oligosaccharides and Sodium Hyaluronate: What the Science Says

We were curious about what the science says about how SculptMedix’s three main ingredients can help your skin, so we did some research to find out what doctors and research says.

EGF has a promising background – its discovery by a pair of scientists was one reason those scientists won the 1986 Nobel Peace Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

The Nobel Assembly noted that the EGF and nerve growth factor the scientists discovered could help “increase our understanding of many diseases starts such as developmental malformations, degenerative changes in senile dementia, delayed wound healing and tumor diseases.”

As such, EGF’s benefits are most often associated with wound healing. We were able to find out, however, one study that indicates that EGF’s were able to reduce wrinkles and pore size as well as improve skin texture in a test group of 29 30-year-olds.

What’s not known, however, is the concentration of the cream used in the test or if the EGF used was the same as what you’ll find in SculptMedix.

Oligosaccharides are particular types of carbohydrates that are found in several of SculptMedix’s ingredients, including chicory.

WebMD notes that some people use a chicory paste to reduce skin swelling and inflammation but the site doesn’t mention anything about chicory’s effectiveness in day-to-day anti-aging regiments.

Sodium hyaluronate is the final main ingredient in SculptMedix. According to Drugs.com, the most common uses for this ingredient are for joint pain, as its primary function is to keep joints lubricated. The site did not indicate any uses for skincare.

Side Effects of the Ingredients in SculptMedix

As far as we could tell through our research of the ingredients in this anti-aging cream, the possibility of side effects is low.

The major concerns we read about were regarding injectable doses of sodium hyaluronate, not topical applications of a cream.

Mayo Clinic notes that common reactions to sodium hyaluronate include itchy skin, blue or purple patches on the skin and other non-skin related issues.

Pricing and Return Policy for ScupltMedix

At the time of publishing, you could buy SculptMedix for the following prices:

  • One jar: $80 and free shipping
  • Two jars: $144 and free shipping
  • Three jars: $204 and free shipping

DermaMedix says that the product comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee. They say that you can make your return with “no questions asked.”

Based on our research of the fine print, we found that the 90-day deadline starts from the day the cream leaves the shipping facility.

If you make a return request within those 90 days, you have to contact their customer service department to start your return. You can contact DermaMedix at 800-425-0243.

How SculptMedix Compares to Other Anti-Aging Creams

Anti-aging creams featuring EGF aren’t quite as plentiful as those that use popular ingredients like hyaluronic acid and retinol.

We were able, however, to do a quick Google search and find two competing EGF creams:

  • DHC Care EGF Cream: $89 for 1.2 ounces
  • Bioeffect EGF Serum: $160 for 0.5 ounces

The big difference between these two products and SculptMedix is pricing and EGF concentration. You get nearly twice as much SculptMedix for the same price as DHC’s cream and about four times the cream as you get in serum from Bioeffect.

We took a look at the ingredients for each of these products and found that DHC contains EGF as well as hyaluronic acid, a popular moisturizing ingredient in many types of skin creams and serums.

Bioeffect contains sodium hyaluronate, which is a salt form of hyaluronic acid that is claimed to help reduce wrinkles.

It’s hard to say which of these products will produce the best results. If your choice is based on price and quantity, SculptMedix is the most affordable and provides a month’s worth of cream.

The Bottom Line: Pros and Cons of Using SculptMedix

Based on the research we’ve done in this review, we believe there are some distinct advantages and disadvantages to using SculptMedix.

First, the cream’s price is competitive when set against what’s available from other EGF creams. Still, at $89, a 30-day supply could be cost-prohibitive for those on a budget who are looking for an affordable anti-aging cream.

The main downside to the cream, we believe, is that it uses ingredients whose anti-aging properties have yet to generate a lot of confirming research.

EGF can help with wounds but the proverbial jury is still out regarding how effective it is in rejuvenating your skin. Research of the other two main ingredients didn’t reveal much from reputable medical websites.

So, as you make your decision about whether or not SculptMedicx is right for you, it’s important to understand that research shows EGF’s effectiveness for anti-aging skin treatment isn’t definitive.

Also, keep in mind that DermaMedix says that their anti-aging face and neck cream can produce results within one jar’s worth of use but that “it’s very difficult to predict exactly when you will begin to see results.”

3 weeks in, need more time!

By Kathryn B., Savannah, GA, Verified Reviewer

I turned 76 last week and have been using SculptMedix for three weeks. I see very little change, so far. My face and neck already appear somewhat younger than most 76-year-olds but there are some minor cheek wrinkles. I'm more concerned about sagging jowls and "turkey neck", both of which are beginning now. I hope to slow it down and possibly to reverse what's started.

I intend to keep up the suggested regime with my two jars, so by March 24th or so, I should know if this is the product for me. Wish me luck!

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Subtle odor

Not heavy or greasy

Absorbs relatively quickly

No “cons” were specified in this review

It's a "band-aid" not a cure

By William (Bill) B., Wappingers Falls, NY, Verified Reviewer

Used the product for a few days and my skin actually looked better. Didn't use it for a couple of days my skin went right back to the original. It does not last.

It's a very expensive "snake oil".

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Did seem to work at first, but only with continued use

The cost

The lasting effect

Locks you into purchasing more and more of the product

Company Response from DermalMedix

Amazing

By Bobbie L., Tavernier, FL, Verified Reviewer

I have been using the SculptMedix for about 3 weeks and wow, I can really tell a difference. I started to see a little bit of a difference after 1 week but know there is a big noticeable difference. I am 67 years old and had a lot of wrinkles on my forehead and they are almost gone, the wrinkles around my mouth from smoking for so many years were very deep but they are starting to be less and less noticeable. I would highly recommend this product.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

How fast it works

It is a little bit pricey for me

What I think of the SculptMedix in the middle of COVID-19!

By MaryAnn G., Boynton Beach, FL, Verified Reviewer

It is easy to apply and I think the outcome would be better if I didn't have to wear a face mask 6 hours straight every day! It feels good, but like I said, it would probably be doing a better job if it wasn't for the mask. I will, however, continue to use it hoping that this COVID lets up and I could get better results.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Not greasy

Have not had any irritation from it

Considering all factors I could see a slight difference on the upper face

Thought it would have tightened more, especially under the chin and neck area

Seeing results

By Amy B., Haslet, TX, Verified Reviewer

I am seeing results. I've been using this product for two weeks. The wrinkles and sagging skin have not disappeared completely, but I am happy with the results. I will continue to use SculptMedix. It's refreshing to actually see and feel a difference. There are so many products out there that over-promise results and under deliver. This is the best one I have found.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Firmer skin

Less fine lines

Smoother skin

Takes a while to receive product

Pricing goes up after the first order

My skin feels softer

By Ronaye B., Bolingbrook, IL, Verified Reviewer

I have been using the product for about a month. I can't say I've consistently used it twice a day. However, my skin does feel softer and the crepy skin on my neck may appear a little tighter. I think it needs more time.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Lightweight

Non-greasy

Very nice product!

By Sharon S., Coeur d'Alene, ID, Verified Reviewer

I can see an improvement in skin texture and firmness. I also notice an improvement in skin tone, no more blotchy spots. I am 67 years young and will continue to use this product daily. I was leary this was going to be another one of those products that sits on my shelf. But to my surprise, it works!

Thank you SculptMedix.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Tightens my skin

Feels light, not heavy

No scent

High hopes

By Nancy P., Centennial, WY, Verified Reviewer

I am 76 years old and the ravages of time are definitely upon me. I have been using the SculptMedix by DermalMedix for about 3 or 4 weeks. I am definitely beginning to see a lessening of the wrinkles in my cheeks.

I did try a new moisturizer a couple of weeks ago and that may also be helping.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Easy to use and easy to follow routine

Odorless, or nearly so

Doesn’t stain bedding

Only been using it for a few weeks but confidence is high

By Terri T., Los Angeles, CA, Verified Reviewer

The first time I ordered from your company - shipment arrived quickly, I like the feel of it on my skin. Keeps it hydrated.

So, waiting to see if it really works on the lower facial area - around my mouth and chin.

Length of Use: Less than 3 months

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros and Cons

Doesn't irritate me - my face, or makes it itch, which is a plus

Keeps face soft and hydrated for a long time - surprising since I have very dry skin

Hopefully it keeps working and firms up my face

Too early to tell - received it 8/15/20

I have been using the product for a while now. A little goes a long way. I just celebrated my 70th birthday and I have been getting a lot of compliments saying I don’t look my age. I know some are genetics and the cream is also helpIng. I use it twice a day.
