WTNH– Want to turn back the hands of time? Retinols are the most clinically effective wrinkle creams available. By promoting cell turnover, they unclog pores, boost collagen production, reduce fine lines, and even out skin tone. To get the best results, follow these rules:
First, use a prescription strength cream. While some over-the-counter products claim to have retinol in them, the dose is so small, they usually have no effect.
There are three different prescription strength retinol creams available, so a dermatologist or plastic surgeon can find the one that work best for your skin type.
Also, since retinol is deactivated by sunlight, it’s best to apply it at night before going to bed.
And remember, results take time. It takes on average 12 weeks to see noticeable changes from retinol so stick with it.
