A topical retinol is an essential tool in your skin care routine. Retinol opens up hair follicles in your skin, and is capable of:

  • Reducing acne
  • Reducing sun damage
  • Lightening brown spots
  • Brightening the overall complexion
  • Simulating collagen production

If you've never heard of retinol before, we encourage you to come to our practice for a consultation. Experienced dermatologist Dr. Gabriele Weichert is personally committed to helping her patients enjoy great skin – skin that looks good and is healthy. She can help you decide if SkinCeuticals® retinol 0.3 is right for you. This formulation is especially well-suited to people who have experienced irritation when using a retinol in the past. Plus, she can provide more tips for preventing irritation because there is a wrong way and a right way to use a topical retinol, as she explains in our video blog.
