Return to a more youthful skin texture
Long-term daily application of tretinoin to the skin has been scientifically proven to reverse the signs of aging and effective at rejuvenating the skin. Tretinoin is a form of retinoid that is derived from vitamin A. Fine skin wrinkles, pigmented age spots, sun-damaged skin redness are all improved with the daily application of tretinoin. It is the core active component of all daily skincare programs endorsed by Dr. Chen Lee. Furthermore, tretinoin is used to precondition skin 4 weeks prior to any skin resurfacing procedure (chemical peels, laser resurfacing, dermabrasion). Use of tretinoin thins the skin and this prepares the skin for better absorption of chemicals in peeling treatment and also reduces the likelihood of pigmentation complications following skin resurfacing procedures.
When it comes to plastic surgery, many patients look to a chemical peel for returning to more youthful skin texture. Chemical peels are non-invasive facial plastic surgical procedures. As with all cosmetic procedures, chemical peels involve an unavoidable level of risk. The benefit and risk correlate with the depth of the peel. In general, the depth of the peel can be light, medium, or deep. All chemical peels work to exfoliate damaged outer layers of the skin. Chemical peels also reduce acne and acne scars, eliminate sun damage, and produce an even skin tone.
