28 Nov The Most Effective Anti-Aging Skin Care Ingredient
Retinoic acid is an essential component of every anti-aging skin care regimen. Retinoic acid repairs photo damaged skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture and stimulates collagen production. Retinoic acid also helps to reduce oil production, unclog and minimize pores and improve efficacy of other topical anti-aging and acne treatments. There are several forms of retinoic acid available both by prescription and over the counter. Prescription retinoic acid is much stronger than the over the counter alternatives and therefore provides superior results.
Here at Ulmer and Wu Dermatology, we offer two prescription formulations of retinoic acid cream, Prouvé Tretinoin 0.1% cream and Prouvé Bleaching Cream. The Prouvé Bleaching Cream is a high potency specially compounded formula containing tretinoin 0.1%, hydroquinone and hydrocortisone. This combination not only provides the benefits of retinoic acid, but it also reduces hyperpigmentation of the skin, which provides a more even and smooth skin tone.
