According to the report, its important for consumers to know beforehand that there will likely be a period of adjustment as their skin becomes accustomed to retinol. Redness and inflammation are common side effects of retinol use. To start, every other day usage is suggested, thus allowing the skin an opportunity to adjust.

As noted in the article, it is vital to apply sun block daily once you start using retinoids says Dr. Ourian. Retinoids thin the outer layer of the skin, making one more susceptible to sun related skin damage.

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Sculptra and CoolSculpting. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others. More information about skin care can be found on Epiones website.
