A “solar-powered” lotion that transforms UV rays into red light to give you the same anti-aging results you’d get from laser treatment in a doctor’s office, or from an FDA-approved at-home red light device?

A body lotion that mimics the effect of a lobster hormone — one that causes their bodies to shrink before molting — to help you shrink, too?
These are some of the claims DERMAdoctor made for its Photodynamic Therapy facial lotion, Photodynamic Therapy eye lift lotion, and Shrinking Beauty products that it sold to people directly and through retailers such as Nordstrom, Sephora, Ulta, and QVC.
