Retin-A cream contains Tretinoin which is a form of Vitamin A. The Tretinoin active ingredient has been clinically proven to reverse the signs of aging by reducing wrinkles, removing fine lines and improving both the condition and appearance of the skin.
Retin A cream is supplied in concentrations of 0.05%, 0.025% and 0.1%, each strength being tailored to a particular skin problem.
Thanks to its tretinoin ingredient, Retin A cream is especially powerful in combating the visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Tests have shown that within just six weeks of usage, Retin-A 0.05 can help to reduce the number of wrinkles and make fine lines disappear.
The 0.025% cream is used for general skin improvement and the 0.1% Retin A cream, the strongest concentration of the treatment and is widely used for acne. This is because in studies Tretinoin when applied topically decreased the formation of blackheads.
Aside from its use for acne and wrinkles, Retin A / Tretinoin has also been successfully used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks after pregnancy and by cosmetic surgeons to speed their patients recovery after surgery.
At antiaging systems we also stock the latest micro-gel version of Retin. The micro gel technology allows the skin to absorb small amount of tretinoin over time and it remains on top of the skin and can therefore be washed off if required. Retin-A micro gel has been shown to be more effective than the standard Retin-A creams and is far less prone to side effects. In addition Retin-A micro gel reduces the appearance of oiliness or facial shine on the skin’s surface.
Tretinoin (sometimes referred to as ATRA or ‘All-Trans Retinoic Acid’) improves the blood supply and increases the turnover of dead skin cells. The effects of the topical application of Tretinoin (i.e. massaging Tretinoin into the skin) have been well researched, particularly with regard to the photoaging of the skin. Overwhelming clinical evidence and the anatomical study of the microscopic structure of skin tissues indicates that topical retinoids such as Retin-A can reverse certain structural changes caused by excessive sun exposure. The Australasian College of Dermatologists estimate that chronic sun exposure or photoaging is probably responsible for over 90% of the visible signs of aging in Australians!
No wonder so many expensive skin products rave about the miniscule amounts of Tretinoin that they contain.
Retin A is proven to be an effective anti aging product for rejuvenating skin and reducing the visible signs of aging, demonstrating remarkable changes in skin elasticity and firmness in just six weeks. Even in this short period, the results can be quite astonishing - fine lines can completely disappear, severe wrinkles can be greatly reduced and the skin can regain a youthful glow.
These benefits ensure that Retin A wrinkles and fine lines remover is a viable part of any beauty regime.
