This powerhouse Retinol based product reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thickens and strengthens the epidermis and barrier function, all the while decongesting skin and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It contains the highest Vitamin A percentage available in over-the-counter skincare.

Retinol is the most widely used retinoid (Vitamin A) in skincare because it is well tolerated by the skin. It is converted to retinoic acid in the skin in a two-step enzymatic process and in this bioavailable form it binds to the retinoic receptors in the keratinocyte. It has a significant effect on improving the appearance of prematurely aged skin as well as reducing hyperpigmentation and dryness. Effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles without inducing skin irritation, Retinol can regenerate the skin, therefore protects the skin from accelerated ageing. Retinol stimulates hyaluronic acid synthesis, improving skin hydration and elasticity which otherwise may lead to wrinkle formation. Retinol being a potent collagen booster, improves skin firmness, fullness, and smoothness. Retinol also helps to control acne by down- regulating the cohesiveness of keratinised skin cells that line and plug the pores.

After cleansing, gently massage 1-2 pumps onto face and neck, paying particular attention to areas with expression lines. Start using twice weekly at night ONLY, and gradually build up to a nightly application. Over usage can initially cause flaking and redness until the skin tolerates this higher percentage retinoid. Avoid the eye contour.

 

 

Retinol 1%

  • The most widely used retinoid in skincare because it is very stable in formulations and  well tolerated by the skin. Retinol is converted to retinoic acid in the skin in a two-step enzymatic process and in this bioavailable form it binds to the retinoid receptors in the keratinocyte. It has a significant effect on improving the appearance of prematurely aged skin as well as reducing hyperpigmentation and dryness. Effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles without inducing skin irritation, Retinol can regenerate the skin, therefore prevents the skin from accelerated ageing.

Ceramide 3

  • Skin identical and powerhouse lipid that reinforces the skins barrier function and prevents trans-epidermal moisture loss. Ceramides, naturally present in the skin, are part of the lipid phase in the skins hydrolipidic film but deplete as the skin ages or is exposed to environmental stress. These lipids bind the keratinised cells of the Stratum corneum together, to form a cohesive barrier that prevents damage from pollution, environmental stress and prevent dehydration. Often referred to as the “mortar” in the “bricks and mortar” analogy that describes the protective barrier function the skin plays in preventing unwanted pathogens from entering the skin and moisture evaporating.  

Acmella Oleracea Extract

  • This plant extract is considered by cosmetic formulators to be a natural alternative to Botox. Traditionally used to numb toothache thanks to the presence of an analgesic molecule called Spilanthol, it helps to smooth the surface of the skin, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in prematurely aged skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

  • Skin identical, hygroscopic ingredient that binds moisturiser in the epidermis, maintaining and improving hydration

    I have a new skin product obsession! A Serum 1% is strong and I’ve noticed a good improvement in overall brightness and skin tone. My favourite night time treatment is to cleanse, derma roller and then apply Ultimate Serum with this 1% A Serum over the top.

    This is hands down my all time favourite product!!! It has helped so much with my acne and firming my skin at the same time. I get so many comments on my skin!

    I even use this serum on my stretch marks which were caused from having a baby.
    I have had a huge improvement in my skin and stretch marks it has definitely brought back a lot of confidence.

At Aesthetics Rx, we often get asked about layering serums for best results. Understanding when to use, and how to use your daily serums can be tricky as some pair well together but others should never be considered at match (as they can counteract and neutralise one another)

To help make power pairing easy, we’ve put together exclusive power duo kits and how to layer them for best results.

In the AM, your skin is most susceptible to free radical and UV damage, so we recommend beginning with our Vitamin C Serum 23% for it’s corrective and protective properties. Followed by our B Serum; when layered on top of each other 2 become 1, in a skin brightening, anti inflammatory and replenishing treatment.

In the PM, we recommend using Vitamin A Serum or Vitamin A Serum 1% on
alternating evenings with Ultimate Serum. If your skin is already healthy it is possible to use the Ultimate Serum after a Vitamin A Serum. We suggest using both of these serums at night as they don’t interact well with UV light.
It is also important to note, if your skin is not used to these serums it is best to introduce them into your routine gradually to build up a tolerance.

Let’s talk about the most sought-after (and tried, and tested, and loved) anti-ageing ingredient - Retinol.

Known for it’s wrinkle reducing super-powers Retinol also works by:
- Regulating and normalising oily skin, and keeps pores from clogging
- Preventing collagen breakdown and boosting collagen and elastin production
- Speeding up skin cell turnover that slows down ageing and helps fade spots and scarring

It is important to note that it can take 12+ weeks before you may see a physical improvement from Retinol (however, just know it’s doing it’s thing in the background.. be patient!)

You’ll find Retinol in our A Serum and A Serum 1%.
