Many people use Retin-A for wrinkles and it indeed has many anti-aging benefits. Retinol cream lightens discolorations, decreases fine lines, evens skin complexion, and increases skin elasticity.
There’s more to Retin-A than meets the eye. What you may not know is that there are improved forms of Retin-A that actually help slow down the process of aging. This ingredient, which is found in lots of skin creams, helps to absorb excess facial oil to reduce facial shine and help prevent acne breakouts. However, the same product can also remove wrinkles and fine lines, and foster freshness in one’s face.
When you first start using Retin-A, you might not see any changes for six to nine weeks. After that time, you should see a noticeable difference. Retin-A improves the blood supply to the skin, which makes the turnover of dead skin cells faster. That way the new, younger-looking skin will appear. Retin-A does not thin the skin, a common misconception, it plumps the skin through stimulating the production of collagen. Medical grade Retin-A contains higher concentrations of Vitamin A than the over-the-counter variety.
