How Wrinkles Form

Natural muscle movements in the face over time convert temporary creasing in the skin to permanent lines.

Collagen Loss

As we get older, the body naturally begins to produce less collagen, a structural protein critical to the health and elasticity of the skin.
UV Damage

UV Damage

Exposure to UV radiation from the sun accounts for  *80% of facial aging*  by directly degrading collagen in the skin.

Collagen is key

Young Old Collagen 1
Collagen is a structural protein that’s found all over the body from your skin to your bones. It is vital to maintaining skin elasticity and volume.
Old skin natural loss botox
Over time, your body naturally begins to lose more collagen than it produces, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and resulting in skin aging.
Age UV Alcohol Botox
Aging, sun damage, smoking, and alcohol consumption accelerate collagen breakdown in the body.
Collagen retinoids botox
Prescription retinoids are one of the most clinically effective ways to increase collagen production.

Not all retinoids are made the same

What’s the difference?

Retinoids are often used to describe both over-the-counter retinols and prescription strength retinoids.

Retinoids are a form of Vitamin A that are often used to improve skin by increasing collagen production. More collagen in your skin means smoother, wrinkle-free skin.

HIGH STRENGTH

Prescription Retinoids

Tretinoin

Prescription retinoids include the active ingredient Tretinoin, aka retinoic acid, which induces the production of collagen in the skin at the cellular level.

Science-based approach

Prescription retinoids include 50+ years of academic studies to support long-term safety and efficacy in reversing wrinkle formation.

FDA Approved

Prescription retinoids are the only FDA approved retinoid to treat photoaging.

LOW STRENGTH

Over-the-counter retinols

Retinol is a specific type of retinoid that is a milder form of Vitamin A. It is 20x less potent that prescription retinoids.

The body takes retinol and converts it into Tretinoin (aka retinoic acid), which is the active form that’s present in prescription-strength retinoids.

Given its lower strength, this product is gentler on the skin but also takes significantly longer to produce results

Prescription retinoids work fast

1-2 Months

As a prescription-strength cream, you may experience skin irritation, redness, and flakiness with initial use. Give your skin time to adjust by starting with a low dose and building up a tolerance over time.

2-3 Months

Retinoids are powerful and proven to be wonderfully effective for a face, so you only need to apply a pea-sized amount to experience its benefits. Introduce it into your skincare routine once or twice a week, gradually increasing to every other night, then every evening as tolerated.

6-12 Months

Using retinoids means playing the long game with skincare. Expect full results in about four months and enjoy radiant, supple skin for years to come.

12+ Months

The end result is supple, naturally elastic skin – and fewer, finer lines in turn.
