1.10 % TOTAL RETINOIDS
This extra-strength anti-aging treatment has clinically proven efficacy versus the leading prescription wrinkle reducing medication. Delivers three forms of vitamin A for the highest concentration of retinoids available without a prescription.
•Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and coarse wrinkles by stimulating collagen production
•Stimulates cell regeneration and cellular turnover to enhance skin tone and texture and reduce the appearance of age spots
•Encourages improved skin elasticity and firmness and minimizes collagen loss
•Unique patented MICROSPONGE® delivery system provides gradual release over time to reduce irritation typically associated with retinoids
This product is recommended to be used as an advanced treatment for skin pre-conditioned by using Retinol Complex or another retinoid product, containing a lower concentration of retinoids. Apply a single pump to face in the evening after cleansing. If a retinol product has never been used before, begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, and then advancing to each evening or as tolerated. Mild redness, peeling and irritation are expected when using this product. Daily sun protection with SPF 20 or higher is highly recommended during use of this product. As with any skin care product, avoid getting in eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
CAUTION: Patient should not use if pregnant, lactating, or planning to become pregnant.
