MICRO-RETINOL .5%

Our micro-encapsulated retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging and our unique time release formula allows for maximum results without the irritation normally associated with retinols.

This anti-aging treatment diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing skin cell production and stimulating collagen growth, which results in a firmer, more radiant complexion.

FAQ'S

How does retinol work on the skin?

Retinols, the most effective anti-aging ingredient on the market, are a bit misunderstood. While we've been told they stimulate new collagen growth to help treat and prevent wrinkles, you may be wondering, "How do they do that?"

Retinols are essentially cell communicators (or what I like to call "skin therapists") and their job is to rehab damaged cells to prevent further self-sabotage and encourage new healthy cells to rise up to the surface of the skin. 

This "rescue and revival" mission leaves a wake of new collagen growth deep in the skin which smoothes, brightens, and reverses the signs of skin aging.

Is this product safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Our Micro-Retinol .5% contains retinol which is not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

A pregnancy/breastfeeding safe alternative to help stimulate new collagen growth to firm and tighten the skin is our Firming Peptide Serum. To safely smooth the texture and brighten the skin while expecting, you may also use our Clarifying Serum.

Is Micro-Retinol irritating to the skin?

Retinols are notorious for causing dryness and irritation on the skin which is why we formulate with micro-encapsulated retinol. The multi-layer crystalline micro-spheres deliver the active retinol down deep into the skin while creating an invisible protective shield on the surface of the skin to minimize irritation and dehydration. 

While you can still expect some dryness or mild irritation while acclimating to the Micro-Retinol, we suggest introducing it to your evening skin routine a couple of times a week, then slowly increasing the frequency as your skin tolerates. 

Is Micro-Retinol .5% safe to use on acne prone skin?

While our Micro-Retinol .5% is safe to use on acne-prone skin to revise acne scarring and smooth the texture of the skin, it is important to wait until the skin is consistently clear before incorporating it into your Clear Skincare Regimen to prevent unnecessary acne flare-ups. 

To see if you are a good candidate for the Micro-Retinol and how to effectively incorporate it into your current regimen, please be sure to fill out our check-in form online.

How long should I expect to wait before I can see visible results?

While most clients report a more even skin tone within the first 30 days, the best results can be seen after 90 days and beyond.
