There’s a reason we’re advised to regularly wash our faces and wear sunscreen when we go outside. This is because the skin on your face is incredibly vulnerable to the effects of aging, the sun, stress, and hormonal imbalances. Your facial skin can develop acne, wrinkles, roughness, sun spots, and skin discoloration. To combat these effects, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Carlton H. Scroggins recommends a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation product called Retin-A®. Retin-A® can effectively improve facial wrinkles, acne, discoloration, and skin texture.
What Is Retin-A®?
Retin-A® is an enriched skin cream or gel that contains vitamin A. This vitamin is widely acknowledged as one of the best nutrients for healthy skin, and it has been used for decades to effectively treat wrinkles, rough skin, sun spots, psoriasis, and even severe acne. Retin-A®, which is enriched with vitamin A, changes the cellular metabolism of the skin’s surface layers to target facial wrinkles, sun spots, and acne. In other words, Retin-A® helps the skin to renew itself.
Skin Resurfacing With Retin-A®
Patients who regularly use Retin-A® can experience healthy, youthful skin with improvement in fine lines, sun spots, large pores, roughness, and acne. This treatment softens the imperfections of the skin for a fresh, clear complexion. Because it focuses on repairing the damaged surface layer of skin, Retin-A® is not meant to prevent aging or remove scars. If needed, Retin-A® can be used as a preparatory treatment for a chemical peel to enhance the effects of the combined treatments. It can also be used in combination with a facelift or other cosmetic procedures.
The Treatment Process
Retin-A® is a daily treatment that should be used throughout your life for maximum benefits. After washing your face each night, apply a pea-sized amount of Retin-A® all over your face. Most individuals should use Retin-A® each night for a period of eight months to one year, at which point applications may be reduced to two or three times each week. As you visit with Dr. Scroggins throughout treatment, he will adjust the treatment plan and formula strength as necessary to find the most effective blend for your skin. He may also recommend applying a moisturizer after treatment if you experience uncomfortable dryness or irritation. These side effects are normal and should gradually go away as the skin adjusts to the new treatment. As Retin-A® treats your skin, it thins the surface layer of skin, which means you will need to regularly apply sunscreen to guard against damaging sun rays. With regular use, you will see improved skin tone, smoother texture, and disappearing fine lines. Many patients report a significant change in the appearance of wrinkles and age spots within just six months.
