What is Renova?
Tretinoin is a derivative of Vitamin A that is used to help reduce the signs of aging and treat a number of conditions. Most formulas are in a gel base, which can dry or irritate sensitive skin. Renova is a unique tretinoin product, formulated with nourishing moisturizers in a cream base. Studies have shown it helps to reduce fine wrinkles, lighten brown spots, and smooth out rough-textured skin. With four to six weeks of regular use, skin should become notably softer, and spots and wrinkles begin disappearing.
How Renova helps your skin
Research indicates that tretinoin acts at the cellular level, stimulating the production of new collagen, while slowing the breakdown of existing skin. Protecting and increasing collagen can effectively reduce many signs of aging, because it is one of the most important components in youthful skin.
The benefits of using Renova regularly include:
- Reduce the appearance of brown spots.
- Decrease wrinkles that have been produced by the natural aging process or sun damage.
- Soften the skin, making it smoother and more supple.
- Improve the appearance of stretch marks, particularly in the abdominal region.
Renova treatment from Dr. W Dermatology
Renova is not an in-office treatment; it is a product intended for daily use at home. However, it can only be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. We will examine your skin and discuss your goals before recommending a treatment. If Renova is chosen, you will be provided with complete instructions. Usage varies for each patient, depending on skin type and condition.
Generally, Renova is used once daily at bedtime. It should be applied to clean skin, at least 20 minutes after cleansing. It is important to avoid sensitive areas, such as the eyes, ears, nose, and any broken skin. You should wait at least one hour after using Renova before applying any moisturizer. For best results, be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions closely. Renova is usually prescribed as part of a comprehensive skin care regimen, designed to address your individual cosmetic and medical issues.
