In short, there is nothing better for the skin than Retinol!

Why are Retinol good for your skin.

It has been used by dermatologists for decades and is considered the number 1 anti-aging ingredient. Retinol works by stimulating collagen production in the skin, smoothes lines and wrinkles, reduces brown spots, evens the skin structure and reduces pores, as well as reducing the occurrence of acne and pimples.

Retinol is the ONLY ingredient scientifically proven to have a major effect on collagen production! The facts are crystal clear, "people who use Retinol daily get less wrinkles than people who don't"!

Retinol is a cell communicator, i.e. pp. that it makes the skin cells act like normal young and fresh cells. It speeds up cell renewal, so the skin cells renew themselves faster. Likewise, it decreases collagenase in the skin, which is the enzyme that breaks down collagen over time. Studies show that Retinol can have a positive effect on precursors to skin cancer (Actinic keratoses), as retinol causes the precursors to behave like normal, healthy cells.

You can clearly see if you have used retinol for a number of years, as the skin appears clearer and more uniform. People who have used it for a number of years will also be significantly less wrinkled than those who have not used it.

The effect of Retinol is only seen after 12 weeks, and the skin will continue to rejuvenate during the period in which the cream is used. In the first 2-3 weeks, the skin may peel a little until it gets used to the cream.

Retinol is a specific form of vitamin A that is converted to vitamin A acid in the skin. The product is available by prescription (tretinoin) and over the counter in medicated creams. At Retouch Clinic we have both, but we recommend starting with the medical creams so that the skin gets used to the Retinol.
