SkinMedica Retinol Complex contains a derivative and a vitamin that may help reduce signs of aging. Retinol can help fill in wrinkles and help with fine lines to give you a younger appearance, how to know if this is for you.
These complex comes in three different concentrations of retinol, a derivative vitamin. SkinMedica recommends starting with a low concentration and working your way to a higher one.
Retinol may cause skin irritation, so starting with a lower level is always best because it allows your skin to become accustomed to it. The weakest concentration is found in Retinol Complex 0.25. Then it's followed by Retinol Complex 0.5. The strongest version is Retinol Complex 1.0.
SkinMedica Retinol Complex will strengthen your skin, improve its texture and help to even out your coloring. It will also help reduce your fine lines and your most pronounced wrinkles. Retinol has been proven to boost your collagen production. As your collagen level increases, your wrinkles will even out and your skin's texture will become smoother. Retinol can help your skin tone by reducing hyperpigmentation. You can see improvement after one to two months of using retinol, and wrinkle reduction is seen after two to three months. This also includes antioxidants for fighting free radicals and bisabolol to help control inflammation.
Retinol should be used once a day, preferably in the evening. Wash and dry your face. Use one pump of Retinol Complex over your face. You can also apply it to your neck or chest. Then, top it off with a moisturizer. When using this product, be sure to use sun protection.
