Retinol – Why experts say it is a Must Have Skincare Product…

What is Retinol?

A vitamin A derivative that unclogs pores, boosts collagen to reduce fine lines, and speeds cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin.

Why use a Retinol?

Don’t just prevent future damage – CORRECT past damage with Retinol – one of the best age-fighting products available.

Retinol SuperstarSome Benefits of Retinol are:

  • Exfoliates the epidermis
  • Cleans sebum (oil) and dead skin from pores, which improves acne – regular acne and hormonal acne (chin acne)
  • Increases collagen production
  • Thickens the dermis, which provides a better barrier to the environment
  • Increases the water content of the skin for a more youthful appearance

For best results, any form of vitamin A/retinol should be used with other anti-aging products. Despite retinol’s superstar status, treating signs of aging is far more complex than any one ingredient can address!

Retinol vs. Retin-A?

Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A which converts to retinoic acid on the surface of the skin. Retin-A is retinoic acid, a synthetic derivative of vitamin A, and considered pharmaceutical.

How do I choose which one to use?

During your appointment, your patient coordinator will help you find the most appropriate retinol for your skin and she will discuss how it should be incorporated into your skin care program.

It is very important to use as directed and slowly acclimate your skin, as it may cause irritation such as redness and flaking if used improperly before your skin has built up a tolerance. Different types of skin react differently with Retinol, and most importantly how to apply Retinol can make a huge difference in the outcome. At Rejuvent, we can prescribe the right one for your skin, give you tips on best practices to build a tolerance and which products you should use to achieve your desired results.

Q. Where do I stop applying my face products?

Learn where to apply skincare

The Total Face area

A. Your “Face” is a Bigger Area Than You May Think! To get the most out of your skincare products we recommend applying to The Total Facefull face, ears, neck and décolleté area going as far into the cleavage as possible. Also apply your skincare products it to the back of the neck and the back area as far as you can reach.

Using your products in these areas will help slow the aging process uniformly and present a more youthful appearance overall. 

NOTE:  The delicate skin of your neck and chest can benefit from retinol, but must be applied lightly once your face has built up a tolerance. If the area becomes itchy, swollen or has red bumps, a light steroid cream, can reduce irritation. It is important to avoid scratching, sun exposure, and extreme heat while your skin is recovering.
