Retinol is basically an acne medication that is used to reduce and gradually remove the appearance of wrinkles, pimples, blackheads, age spots, and the roughness of facial skin while also facilitating the disappearance of darker and lighter spots. Retinol must be used with a total skin care and sunlight avoidance program. The treatment of other conditions may also be possible with Retinol 0.05%, but they should be determined by your doctor.
Retinol 0.05% is an active Vitamin A metabolite that affects the way skin cells behave and adapt. It reduces certain symptoms of acne, fine wrinkles and age spots caused by aging or sun damage. Basically, Retinol prevents the reappearance of blackheads, pimples and other skin disorders by blocking the hardening processes of the outer layer of the skin. It also facilitates the shedding of old skin cells to better promote the formation and growth of new ones. Once we combine all these effects together ,we get a product that not only speeds up skin cell turnover, but it also clears up blackheads, pimples and other acne symptoms that could be so hard to get rid of under normal and usual circumstances.
