If you would like some assistance before purchasing our Retinol products please email our Cosmetic Nurse Practitioner

Retinol has earned the reputation of turning around the aging skin. Retinol is one of the few proven substances that can help in smoothing fine lines, making visible pores look smaller, and fading dark spots. Retinols work by affecting the gene expression, enhanced collagen production, skin smoothing, and reducing the pigmentation. 

Retinol is one of the best antioxidants that help to reduce wrinkles and increase the collagen levels in the skin. It is also useful to treat and cure acne, unclog pores and strengthen skin. Retinol is also used to repair skin that has been damaged in the sun.

How Retinol Works

Retinols act directly on the DNA in the skin cells and boost the cell functions that slow down after you hit 30. Retinol increases the cell turnover so that the skin is sloughing the damaged cells continually and you get to see the healthy skin on the top. It makes the skin radiant and firm. Thus, retinol is an essential part of a skincare regime to help collagen-depleted skin.

Retinol Benefits For Acne

Retinol is known to help cure acne. It works for people who have moderate to severe acne. Retinol helps to unclog pores thus enabling any medicated product to reach the skin and treat it effectively. It is best used with a combination of medical creams that are prescribed for acne. Retinol is also known to help reduce and prevent further acne outbreaks. It works well in taking off all the dead skin that blocks the skin pores and also helps to reduce scar formation due to acne.

Benefits Of Retinol For Wrinkles

Retinol is FDA approved when it comes to treating wrinkles. It has properties that help to repair the collagen in the skin and preserve elastin. It stimulates the blood vessels making the skin look younger, pinkish, and more radiant. It also helps to fade and reduce fine lines that later develop into wrinkles. Retinol is also effective in reducing precancerous spots, which are known as actinic keratosis. It also possesses properties that help protect the skin from the sun. Retinol is also known to possess properties that help smoothen the skin.

Retinoids can also slow down the growth of skin cells in the patients suffering from psoriasis and warts. You just need to apply a little dab of retinol to each sore at night.

Retinol is safe to use and is trusted worldwide by dermatologists to help treat several skin conditions. You need to understand that your skin might take a while to get used to retinol and in such situations, it is best to use the product in limitation. You can start using it about 2 to 3 times in a week, once a day and then gradually increase the usage as your skin begins to adjust to the product. If you’re using any medicated cream after the application of retinol, make sure you consult your dermatologist before doing so.
