The Secret to Youthful Skin

The Secret to Youthful Skin

Are you concerned about the signs of aging that are appearing on your face? If you are, you’re not alone. Millions of people all over the world are trying to find ways to reduce the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.

One of the most effective ways to reduce the signs of aging is to use a topical retinoid. Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that are used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as acne, psoriasis, and wrinkles.

Retinoids work by increasing cell turnover and stimulating collagen production, which can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture. They can also help reduce acne breakouts and improve skin discoloration. However, it may take several weeks or even months to see visible results. It is also important to note that retinoids should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

In addition to prescription retinoids, there are also professional products that can only be purchased through your skin revisionist/aesthetician. While these products may not be as strong as prescription retinoids, they can still provide substantial benefits for the skin. However, it is important to use these products as directed and start with a lower concentration to avoid irritation.

Overall, retinoids can be a valuable addition to a skincare routine for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin. Working with a skin revisionist can help ensure that the appropriate type and strength of retinoid is being used for each individual’s unique needs.

What type of Retinol should I start with?

There are many different types of retinoids, and the one that you use will depend on your individual skin type and concerns. The different types of prescription strength topical retinoids that are commonly used on the face include adapalene (found in Differin®, Epiduo®), alitretinoin (Panretin®), bexarotene (Targretin®), and tazarotene (found in Tazorac®, Avage®). Other types of retinoids that can be used on the face include tretinoin (Retin-A®, Renova®), isotretinoin (Accutane®), and acitretin (Soriatane®), although these are less commonly prescribed for facial use.

The type of retinoids I work with include DMK’s Revitison and Revis-A, SkinBetter’s AlphaRet, and Noon Aesthetics Retinol Charisma. Each of these products has a different type of retinol in them. Retinoids are a form of vitamin A that helps to boost cell turnover, unclog pores, and stimulate collagen production. DMK’s Revitison and Revis-A, SkinBetter’s AlphaRet, and Noon Aesthetics Retinol Charisma all contain a type of retinoids with varying percentages. More information on these products include:

1. DMK’s Revitison and Revis-A:

– Revitison is a serum that contains retinyl palmitate, a mild form of retinoids that is suitable for sensitive skin. It also has vitamin C and E to help protect the skin from free radicals.

– Revis-A is a more potent serum that contains retinyl palmitate and retinol, which work in combination to increase cell turnover and promote collagen production. It also has antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin.

2. SkinBetter’s AlphaRet:

– AlphaRet is a unique combination of a retinoid and an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which work together to improve skin texture, tone, and luminosity. It contains 0.5% retinoid and 10% glycolic acid, which is a more potent formulation than most over-the-counter retinol products. It also has antioxidants and ceramides to protect and strengthen the skin barrier.

3. Noon Aesthetics Retinol Charisma:

– Retinol Charisma is a serum that contains 1% retinol, which is a high-strength formulation that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has vitamin C, niacinamide, and ceramides to brighten and hydrate the skin and improve its texture and tone.

Additionally, it is important to incorporate other skincare practices such as creating a daily skincare routine using additional professional products that support the work of your chosen retinoid. Wearing sunscreen and avoiding excessive sun exposure, staying hydrated, and eating a balanced diet are paramount to achieving the best results. With consistent use and proper care, retinoids can help improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone for a more youthful and radiant complexion.

It is important to talk to your Skin Revisionist/aesthetician about which type of retinoid is right for you, as some can be more irritating or drying than others. It is also important to start with a lower strength and gradually work your way up to avoid irritation and sensitivity. Regardless of the type of retinoid used, it is important to use sunscreen daily as retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV rays. Book a Consultation to get started at Incandescent Skin.
