A derivative of vitamin A, Retin-A is the most effective and most studied anti-aging topical product on the market today. It encourages the skin to function as it should.
Retin-A is available in three strengths and is used to stimulate cellular turnover. It sheds the surface layer (stratum corneum) of the skin while thickening the epidermis. This process strengthens the skin, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and produces a youthful, healthy glow.
Retin-A is also known to improve texture and elasticity and to increase blood circulation as it maintains even cell growth. Many patients believe they are allergic or too sensitive to use Retin-A because of normal side effects that occur. This active prescription can cause dryness, itching, redness, flaking, and photosensitivity, though the benefits largely outweigh the brief and controlled side effects. Strength and frequency of this product are determined by the patient’s skin type and level of tolerance.
