Available in three strengths, SkinMedica Retinol Complex works to transform tired, wrinkled, and aging skin by enhancing skin’s tone, texture, and resiliency. Suitable for all skin types, but ideal for skin that has been preconditioned by previous retinoid use, Retinol Complex minimizes the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while diminishing the appearance of dark spots, leaving you with an even, more youthful skin tone. In a clinical study, Retinol Complex was shown to have similar cosmetic efficacy when compared to tretinoin. Apply two times a week in the evening, gradually increasing to every other evening, and then each night, as tolerated by skin.

  • Available in three strengths: 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0

  1. Q: What are the main benefits of using SkinMedica Retinol Complex?
    A: SkinMedica Retinol Complex is designed to enhance skin renewal and improve its appearance. The retinol in the formula helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. It also aids in improving skin texture and tone, promoting a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Regular use can result in clearer, more radiant skin.

  2. Q: How does retinol in SkinMedica's formula differ from other retinol products?
    A: SkinMedica's Retinol Complex features a unique encapsulated retinol delivery system. This system helps to reduce irritation commonly associated with retinol use by releasing the active ingredient over time. It allows for effective penetration and efficacy at a controlled rate, making it suitable for those new to retinol or with sensitive skin.

  3. Q: Can SkinMedica Retinol Complex be used with other skincare products?
    A: Yes, it can be integrated into a comprehensive skincare routine. However, it's important to use it in conjunction with products that do not contain retinol or other strong active ingredients to avoid over-irritation. When using retinol, always include a broad-spectrum sunscreen in your morning routine, as retinol can make the skin more sensitive to the sun.

  4. Q: Who should use SkinMedica Retinol Complex?
    A: This product is suitable for individuals looking to address signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. It is generally recommended for adult skin, as retinol is a powerful ingredient. Those with very sensitive skin or individuals with certain skin conditions should consult a dermatologist before use.  Do not use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or if you plan to become pregnant.

  5. Q: How often should SkinMedica Retinol Complex be applied, and what is the recommended usage?
    A: Initially, it's advisable to start with a lower frequency, like once or twice a week, to allow the skin to adjust to the retinol. Gradually increase the frequency to every other night or as tolerated. Apply a small amount in the evening after cleansing and toning, and before moisturizing. Avoid using it at the same time as products containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to prevent skin irritation.
