How Micro-Retinol Benefits Skin

Demi Moore said “I’m a big believer in that if you focus on good skin care, you really won’t need a lot of makeup.”

Everyone dreams of having glowing, hydrated, clear skin. Most people that have this dream have tirelessly tried creams, serums, treatments and even only eating specific foods to reach this goal.

If you visit a dermatologist you know they will tell you to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. But do you know what else they will tell you to use? Retinol.

When you browse the aisles of your local supermarket, Sephora, Ulta or other skincare store you will see RETINOL written all over the products. But what is Retinol, why is it so popular and what are the benefits?

What is Retinol?

Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A that is absorbed into the body through the skin as a serum, cream, peel or other topical ointments.

What is Micro-Retinol?

Micro-Retinol is Retinol broken down into smaller microns- about 10 microns to be exact. Our skin's intercellular space, or the space in which water and gas passes between the cells, is about 8-20 microns in size. In short, this means that Micro-retinol can pass through the skin more quickly and easily compared to regular retinol treatments.

Purpose of Retinol

Retinol helps to rejuvenate the skin. It has antioxidant, anti-aging, and acne reducing properties. It also helps to purge free-radicals in the skin. Retinol also helps to regulate healthy cell regrowth. This, in turn, strengthens the protective function of the skin, reduces collagen degeneration and promotes water retention in the skin. All of this leaves you with healthy, younger looking skin!

Benefits of Retinol

The obvious benefit of using Retinol is younger looking skin due to its anti-aging properties but there are other benefits as well.

Retinol works for the treatment of:


-Oil regulation in skin (regulate oily skin)

-Prevention of wrinkles

-Minimize fine lines and wrinkles

-Brighten dull skin

-Uneven skin texture

-Melasma or hyperpigmentation

-Reduction and fading of dark spots, sun spots/damage, and freckles

Results of Retinol

Retinol is looked at as an important skin care ingredient. When using Retinol it will take a few weeks to see the best results. The changes will be gradual but on a cellular level, your skin's structure is changing for the better. Micro-Retinol results will show up more quickly than regular Retinol because of how it penetrates the skin differently. and The long-term effects of using Retinol outweigh the length of time it takes to see the results. Retinol peels are one of the most popular treatments that yield noticeable results.

Retinol is shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but for those interested in injections like Botox review our post titled "How Long Does Botox Last?", to weigh the pros and cons.

Retinol Peels

Retinol facial peels are incredibly effective for those interested in reducing acne or fine lines and wrinkles. For the best results 3-6 peels are typically scheduled.
