Q: Do I need a prescription for Retinol 0.5%?
A: No. Retinol 0.5% is available without a prescription.
Q: What is the precaution when using retinol?
A: Since retinol use makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, proper protection with an SPF 30 or higher is essential. To further reduce the chance of any sun sensitivity, we recommend applying our retinol complexes at night.
Q: Can retinol products be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: We do not recommend retinol products for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor before use.
Q: How long does it take to see results from retinol use?
A: Not all retinol products are created equal so results can vary significantly by brand. Thanks to our high potency pure retinol, complimentary quality ingredients, and Poly-Pore® slow-release delivery technology, you can expect to see noticeable results with little to no irritation in 2-3 weeks.
Q: Can I use this product after professional treatments?
A. Retinol is known to be a great results booster and can be used to help maintain results from a wide variety of anti-aging and pigmentation protocols such as peels and facials. Due to the wide range of treatments available and uniqueness of each patient’s skin, we always recommend consulting your doctor or esthetician for medical advice post-treatment.
