What are retinols?

Retinols—and their prescription cousins tretinoin and Retin-a—have been shown to do great things for the skin, helping you treat your acne, reverse sun damage (photo-aging), create improved skin smoothness and texture, improve skin discoloration, decrease the presence of fine lines, tighten pores, and decrease the inflammation associated with rosacea.

What do Retinols accomplish?

Retinol, regardless of the formulation, is the workhorse of any anti-aging regimen. By increasing cell turnover, it promotes new collagen formation, treats fine lines, evens skin tone, and reduces acne breakouts. In addition, it’s a potent antioxidant that helps to destroy free radicals, which develop in the skin as a result of sun, smoke, and pollution.

What will a retinol masque add to my treatment?

Adding a dose of Retinol deep into the skin after a laser or microneedling treatment basically “supercharges” your treatment. Allowing this superhero molecule to penetrate deeply into the skin allows it to act directly where it is most needed. Applying retinol will help eliminate dark spots, shrink pimples, and smooth out fine lines while keeping new wrinkles from appearing.

What can I expect from a retinol masque?

Retinol masques will immediately cool the skin, leading to less discomfort in the hours immediately following your procedure. You should expect, however, that this masque will lead to more peeling and flaking after your treatment as the Retinol does its work to shed out the older and damaged cells and grow newer, fresher skin underneath. You should also expect an additional day of redness due to the efficacy of this formulation. A Retinol masque can remain on the skin for 20 to 30 minutes.
