Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Retinol make your face peel?

Should you use Retinol every night?
If you do not have sensitive skin, you may use Retinol every night, although it is beneficial to alternate Retinol with a glycolic acid and/or salicylic acid to slough off the dead skin cells.
Can you use Retinol under eyes?
Retinol may be used beneath the eyes for anti-aging and firming benefits.
Is Retinol bad for your skin?
Retinol is not bad for your skin as long as your skin is not very sensitive or you have an allergy to the product.
Does Retinol cause cancer?
Retinoids, which are vitamin A derivatives, may prevent skin cancer in people particularly vulnerable to skin cancers.
Can Retinol make wrinkles worse?
Retinol can make wrinkles seem worse when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, but this is temporary and use of moisturizer helps prevent drying and cracking of skin. Proper strength and frequency of use of Retinol is very important and will be discussed with your aesthetic provider.
What does Retinol do for your skin?
Retinol can help damaged skin cells return to their normal function. This allows cells to retain more healthy collagen and elastin, which keeps wrinkles from forming. It also helps your skin slough dead cells and create new ones, which in turn creates new collagen.
Are there side effects to Retinol?
The most common side effects of topical Retinols are skin irritation such as burning, redness, itching, peeling, and scaling that starts after two to three days and can last 6-8 weeks during use. Retinols and retinoids can increase sun sensitivity, because they remove the top layer of skin.
Does Retinol darken skin?
The most common side effects of topical Retinols are skin irritation such as burning, redness, itching, peeling, dryness, stinging. In addition to these side effects, lightening of normal skin color, darkening of the skin, and lightening of treated areas of dark skin may occur with use of Retinol.
Does Retinol actually work?
Retinol works very well on the skin and should be included in your anti-aging arsenal.
