If you've had the privilege to meet Dr. Franks, you most likely have heard him talk about Retin A for skin care. Many of our clients seek younger, healthier looking skin and whether their needs qualify for a surgical procedure, dermal fillers, or simply the right skin care regimen; Retin A is always the 1st step!
So what is this miracle product?
Retin A, also known as Tretinoin, is a Vitamin A derivative which was first developed to address acne vulgaris in the mid 1980’s. CNN Money posted an article about the changes which occurred when applying Retin A and how it may not only treat acne! Stated in the article, “Shortly after the FDA approval, some older acne patients -- those over 35 -- began reporting that Retin-A produced a welcome side effect: smoother, rosier, younger-looking skin. Their wrinkles, they said, actually seemed to diminish.”
At this time, Retin A had not been clinically tested as an anti aging cream; however the positive reactions from current patients had the word spreading!
Retin A works by increasing skin cell turnover; stimulating collagen production while exfoliating the top layers of the epidermis to reveal fresh, younger-looking skin. Currently, Retin A is the only topical treatment for wrinkles that is FDA approved! It is extremely effective for those who use the product on a regular basis.
In our practice, we recommend Retin A to any client seeking younger-looking skin. Most often, we incorporate Retin A with the medical skin care line Obagi to not only address fine lines and wrinkles but to also correct hyperpigmentation and sun spots! The results are phenomenal.
