Rethink Your Retinol Creams with PCA SKIN

Rethink Your Retinol Cream with PCA SKIN

The education team at PCA SKIN is here to tell us what makes their retinol creams different.

The Problem

Retinoids are traditionally used as a one-size-fits-all treatment. Although highly effective, the active molecule, retinoic acid, can be quite irritating to many skin types. Additionally, the same prescription or cosmeceutical is typically dispensed to all patients with the only difference being the percentage of retinoic acid or retinol. Although retinol is gentler on the skin, this percentage approach can still cause challenges for patients, as these formulations do not take into consideration the additional needs of specific skin types.

The Solution

PCA SKIN has taken retinoid treatments to the next level with R-OH Retinol Solutions, our collection of condition-specific retinol creams. We employ the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to transport ingredients deeper into the skin increasing their benefits. Our OmniSome delivery system carries a higher concentration of key ingredients deeper into the skin and reduces irritation and discomfort caused by topical ingredients.

For brighter skin: PCA SKIN Intensive Brightening Treatment

Brightening ingredients are delivered deep into the skin by the OmniSome delivery system. Retinol, niacinamide and hexylresorcinol produce radiance from within, while promoting an even skin tone. Resveratrol provides antioxidant action and promotes an even skin tone while niacinamide minimizes redness and the yellowing of the complexion.

For smoother skin: PCA SKIN Intensive Age Refining Treatment

Specifically formulated to hydrate and protect visibly aged skin, this product delivers 0.5% pure retinol and niacinamide deep into the skin with OmniSome delivery technology for the most dramatic age control results possible without a prescription. Added calming agents reduce the irritation often associated with pure retinols and retinoic acid.

For clearer skin: PCA SKIN Intensive Clarity Treatment

Powered by the OmniSome delivery system, 0.5% pure retinol, salicylic acid and other acne-clearing ingredients are carried deep into the skin to fight breakouts and increase cell turnover for healthier, clearer skin.
