Hanging corners of your mouth can be synonymous with a self-fulfilling prophecy. There are people who become very gloomy about the effect that drooping mouth corners have on your appearance.
Vitamin A acid acts like a ‘conductor of the skin’. It stimulates the division of the skin, rejuvenating the old skin layer and making it look fresher and more radiant.
With age, skin cells divide more slowly, making the skin less fresh/vial. By using Vit A-acid ‘transforms’ the skin, removing old dead skin cells and replacing them with young new cells.
Skin cells that divide too quickly, such as with pigmentation spots, are calmed by the transformation. The skin comes into balance and signs of premature aging are corrected.
For long-term success, it is important to combine and/or continue the treatment with a care line with high doses of Vit-A, Vit-E and Vit-C.
The skin has to get used to vitamin A acid.
If you don’t build it up slowly, you can ‘overload’ the skin.
It almost sounds too good to be true: a cream that can rejuvenate your skin.
However, this always goes slower than you hope and expect. Vitamin a acid can be very irritating to the skin and it is important to build up usage slowly. If you don’t do this and use more, the skin can become irritated.
Skin irritation from Tretonoin can manifest itself in the following way:

– On the days that you are not using the tretinoin cream (and for cleaning, moisturizing and protecting the skin) we recommend Skinceuticals.
This base of this care line contains high doses of vitamin C.
– AVOID SUN
It is important to protect the skin with an SPF.
-In the summer it is best to moderate the use of tretinoin cream. Tretinoin ensures that your skin reacts strongly (more) to sunlight.

1st phase lasts 6-8 weeks:
Your skin becomes more even in color; skin cells come into balance.
2nd phase lasts 6-8 weeks:
Your skin becomes smoother and softer; natural renewal rhythm begins to recover.
The skin looks healthier and younger, is firmer and has a natural glow.
In the 1st phase, the side effects such as redness, dryness and peeling may be stronger. This disappears as enters the 2nd phase.
Treatment with Tretinoin never really stands alone. For the best improvement of the skin, we also advise you to consider a treatment with a skin specialist. Many people do not know that the treatment at the skin therapist (gedeeltelijk) is reimbursed by the additional health insurance.
