Make a point of enjoying next-level skincare with retinol. This little wonder cream was first approved in the 1970s for acne patients. It’s a synthetic derivative of Vitamin-A, but falls under the broad retinoid category. When applied topically, retinol converts into retinoic acid. The latter is much harsher than retinol creams or serums.
Retinol helps promote cell turnover and prevents pores from clogging. It’s because of this benefit that many doctors and dermatologist prescribed retinol for acne patients. And to this day, it enjoys top spot for clearing resistant acne. And the good news is that ex-acne sufferers might age slower in any event.
Another benefit is that retinol improves penetration of other skincare products.
As one of the most used anti-aging products, it’s simply remarkable how it stimulates skin cell turnover with its semi-exfoliating effect. You’ll have increased levels of collagen and elastin – making for a brighter, more even-toned skin.
Best of all, retinol decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So, what’s not to like?
Many different over-the-counter skincare products contain retinol. So, it won’t be difficult to find a product perfect for your skin. Lasermed stocks a variety of products containing retinol.
What’s more, it’s very cost-effective considering the amazing results. You can also see a dermatologist to get a prescription if you wish.
Retinol comes in a variety of strengths: from 0.25 to 0.5. Depending on your skin sensitivity, use it two to three times a week. Or for very sensitive skin, start using it once a week. Gradually increase the application to twice a week. If your skin isn’t irritated, then you can increase the frequency to four nights a week.
So, start your journey to next-level skincare with retinol.
