Dr. Nicholas Perricone is a dermatologist and CEO of NV Perricone MD, Ltd. A brilliant scholar, Dr. Perricone completed medical school in just three years, graduating with distinction. He completed his internship in pediatrics at Yale Medical School and his dermatology residency at Ford Medical Center. Dr. Perricone is regarded as the Father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging.

After years of research Dr. Perricone arrived at the conclusion that cellular inflammation may be the underlying cause of wrinkles. According to Dr. Perricone, this inflammation is not the redness that is visible to the naked eye but rather microscopic irritation that takes place in your cells leading to cellular damage. He believes that this inflammation is responsible for skin-related problems like breakouts, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
