Several months ago, I had a breakout from sleeping with makeup and my dermatologist prescribed a medication called Tretinoin gel 0.025 (Generic name for Retin -A 0.05). The medication was actually prescribed for my acne, but I was told it also serves as an anti aging agent. After about 4-6 weeks of using this medication, I found this statement to be true.
Prior to my visit to the Derma, I had battled smile lines and the aftermath of sun exposure. But after about 6 weeks of using this product, my face was baby fresh, and the smile lines appeared to have filled up.
Retin-A is often used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. It produces a mild, superficial peel of the epidermis. Retin-A has effects on the both the superficial (epidermis) and the deep (dermis) parts of the skin. The major benefit is to decrease the effects of sunlight caused aging by increasing the speed with which the surface cells are replaced.
