Retinoids: Vitamins for our Skin- from Dr. Mark Bishara in Mansfield & Southlake
Ever wonder after getting a facial or chemical peel what makes your face feel so firm and fresh? There is a very important and common ingredient found in some skin care products. We all know that taking our daily multivitamins and eating healthy are important to our everyday lifestyle as well as keeping our skin looking beautiful, but did you know that we can also find our vitamins in our skin care products as well. At Dr. Bishara's office and The Paragon Med Spa we know the benefits of Retinoids for skin care.
Our epidermis is the outer most part of our body and is exposed to so many free radicals each day and it is also the organ to receive the least amount of vitamins from the foods we
eat and the supplements we take. This is why in order to protect the biggest organ on our body (our skin) we need to use good topical products to insure it receives all the vitamins it needs to stay healthy as well.
Retinoids are a form of vitamin A and essential to collagen production, wrinkle and inflammation reduction. Retinoids can be found in many different forms and can also have different side affects on the skin. Retinal is the alcohol form of Vitamin A which can convert to retinoic acid. Retinoic Acid is more commonly found in chemical peels and is used for more acne prone, problematic skin. Now although these are okay to use on the skin they can at times cause a little peeling depending on the strength and form thats in the product being used.
