The Importance of Retinols

by Sound Plastic Surgery


Every woman over 30 should be using a Retinol treatment!

And I might even argue every woman period, or at least some form of a chemical exfoliant.

The purpose is to speed up your exfoliation process, similar to a chemical peel, and increase the production of collagen (the fiber that gives skin structure).

How It Works:

As a chemical exfoliant, retinol thins the outer-most layer of skin (the dead skin that clogs your pores causing blackheads and acne) while at the same time stimulating collagen within the dermal layer, which is why you cannot buy this product over the counter. It works in the dermal layer, which is where you want all your products to penetrate.

What Are the Benefits of Retinol Cream?

Retinol, a form of vitamin A, is one of many ingredients found in various topical skin care products. It's widely used because it has many applications and uses for the general improvement of your skin's health.

  • Clears Acne.
  • Diminishes Wrinkles
  • Lightens Discolorations
  • Fewer Side Effects
  • Shrinks Pores

If you find your skin is too sensitive for Retinols, Glycolic Acid is a great alternative. Adding a product that encourages exfoliation will produce optimal results long-term.

My favorite Retinol products is:
