Additional SkinMedica Retinol Complex Information

The company's anti-aging formulas can't stop time, but they can help skin look its best by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as by addressing the skin’s elasticity and texture, tone and discoloration. By choosing scientifically proven ingredients, and formulating them into compounds that are effective, practical, show fast results and are designed to be used with all skin types and complexions, SkinMedica can offer women a chance to maintain beautiful, healthy skin.

A series of anti-aging skin care treatments have been developed by SkinMedica over the past 10 years, using scientifically proven ingredients compounding into innovative, results-driven formulas. The signs of aging skin require this dedicated approach: Over time and as a result of exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun and environmental stresses, the rate of replacement of collagen and elastin in the skin slows down. This causes the skin tissues to begin to lose their firmness and for wrinkles, lines and puffy areas to begin to form. At the same time, areas of blotchy, discolored pigmentation begin to appear.

The series of retinol complex products created by SkinMedica provide a form of skin-strengthening ingredients in a range of concentrations. Retinol, applied topically, is quickly converted into retinoic acid by the body, which helps the skin to create higher levels of collagen and elastin and even out discolored areas of the skin. The results include smoother, firmer skin, visible reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and puffy areas and improved skin tone. Physician approved and recommended, these compounds can be incorporated into a skin care regimen to show dramatic improvement in skin condition in a short period of time. Some people experience initial skin irritation to retinol, including skin redness, drying and flaking, but a program of gradual exposure of the skin to these compounds can minimize the potential irritation. Even in non-prescription concentrations, it is recommended that a physician be consulted before beginning use of a retinol product, particularly if the user is pregnant, likely to become pregnant or breastfeeding.
