At our Kelowna clinic, we offer a range of retinol products in different strengths and textures to meet the needs of various skin types and concerns. Some of the benefits these skin care products have, include:

  1. Brightens dull skin by exfoliating at a cellular level, which results in brighter and smoother new skin.
  2. Prevents wrinkles due to its minimizing effect, as well as works to smooth out existing wrinkles and fine lines.
  3. Regulates oily skin and minimizes any acne breakouts.
  4. Works to even out your complexion over time by fading dark spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation.


How To Use Retinol Creams For The Best Results

Retinol is a research-backed, proven anti-aging ingredient in skin care products and everyone can benefit from using it. However, we do carry several different strengths of Retinol in order to complement different skin types. Your skin specialist can help select the correct strength for your needs.

How To Use Retinol Skin Care Products

  • Retinol should only be used at night.
  • Sart slow by using a Retinol cream 2 nights per week. This will give your skin time to adjust.
  • You may find that you experience slight dryness and redness to the skin in the beginning.
  • As your skin strengthens and adjusts, you can increase the use to 3 or more nights per week.
  • You’ll be able to increase the strength of the retinol cream as your skin gets healthier.
  • Expect to see your results within 3-6 weeks.

Remember: It’s important to go slowly when using Retinol products and consistency is the key to great results!

Pair Retinol With Other Skin Care Products For Best Results

Retinol pairs well with other gold-standard products, such as Vitamin C serums in the morning and you MUST use a daily SPF cream of 30 or higher to protect your skin from UVA/UVB while using a retinol product.
