Retin A was first used as an acne treatment, since then dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons have discovered that it’s the key to a better complexion. Not only is it an excellent acne treatment it also has anti wrinkle and anti-aging properties. It has long been one of the big secrets of celebrities to keep their Hollywood skin looking perfect. Also for men it’s often the best solution to get through their often tougher and thicker skin.
Retin A which is also known as tretinoin, and retinoid is a topical form of the compound retinoic acid which is derived from a synthetic form of vitamin A. Like the vitamin it owes its existance to shares many of the same qualities. It has powerful anti oxidizing and skin nourishing qualities. It is a top performing wrinkle and acne treatment, and an exfoliating skin brightener. Numerous doctors swear by it and some claim if they had to choose would use it over anything else.
Retin A’s exfoliating qualities promotes more rapid skin cell turn over to shed the older dead skin cells and bring out newer skin underneath. While at the same time it also boosts collagen and elastin production to fill the skin out from underneath and repairing damage from underneath. Its other qualities such as increasing the circulation under the skin make it a real life anti-aging miracle solution.
Because of Retin A’s exfoliating qualities it should be used only once every few days to start with until your skin becomes more used to it. Then as your skin becomes more accustomed to the cream you can begin to use it more often. Retin A does not work overnight and might even make your acne or complexion worse at first but if you stick with it you’ll likely find that it was exactly what your face needed. One of the main side effects of Retin A is that it dries the skin so use a gentle moisturizer along with it.
