Quick Tip:Results from retinol or the vitamin A derivatives include:
Retinol products can be very irritating to aging skin.
If you have never used a retinol treatment before, start with a lower concentration like you'll find in the Afirm product line so your skin can build-up a tolerance.
Retinol is also an exfoliant that is often prescribed as an effective acne treatment.Be warned though. . .
Tretinoin is the strongest of the Vitamin A's and can potentially be very irritating to the skin.
SkinCeauticals Retinol is formulated at 1.0% concentration and considered to be the strongest available retinol treatment that you can purchase over-the-counter.
Quick Tip: (Yet Again.)
Be very careful!
Follow the directions very, very closely or you will without a doubt have severely irritated skin. (I only use this strength of retinol to spot treat the worst of my age spots.)
When retinol is used in combination with hydroquinone, age spots will eventually start to flake right off! But it is an extraordinarily STRONG treatment when used together so only do so for a very short period of time!
Preliminary research indicates that Retinyl Palmitate, another Vitamin A derivative, has demonstrated promising results that indicate similar rejuvenation effects to that of tretinoin without the skin irritating side effects. Retinyl Palmitate is a great vitamin A skin treatment alternative for sensitive skin types.
