Retin-A is believed to be a miracle cream to fight against wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. Derived from vitamin A, Retin-A will help smooth out wrinkles and improve pigmentation. It not only can be used in anti-aging products, it also is one of the key ingredients to fight acne. Retin-A, if used properly, can fade away aging spots that are created by harmful UVA and UVB rays. It also smoothes fine lines and wrinkles by helping the skin regain collagen and speed up the production of new skin cells. Retin-A cream is a prescription drug and can only be provided by a doctor. It is also important to be cautious when using this cream. Flaky skin, dryness, and red irritation can occur. If it is too drying, you can decrease the dosage or use an alternative. If problems still occur, discontinue using any product that contains Retin-A.
Dr. Wright’s Tip
Even though Retin-A was first brought to the market to help acne, it can be used to fight signs of aging. However many women cannot tolerate its side effects of dryness, flaking and irritation. An excellent alternative to help fight aging skin and reduce wrinkles without the dryness and irritation is RETRINAL by Avene. Exclusive to physicians – Extensive clinical research has demonstrated that RETRINAL significantly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces roughness and blotchiness, evens out skin tone, and increases firmness, hydration and the radiance of the skin.
