The Benefits of Using a Retinoid for Acne Treatment

retinoid-for-acne-benefits-differin-retin-aRetinoids for the treatment of acne are nothing new.  For many years now, dermatologists have been recommending the use of retinoids (such as Retin-A and Differin) for the treatment of acne.  But, did you know that there is a reason why dermatologists turn to retinoids more than other topical acne medications?  Below is a list of the benefits of using a retinoid for acne treatment.
  • Retinoids working by stimulating skin cell turnover.  This means that the dead skin cells, which become trapped in your pores, are expressed from your skin.  This process prevents acne-causing bacteria from being attracted to your pores and causing acne.
  • By getting rid of dead skin cells that would otherwise stick around, retinoids can uncover the glowing skin that you desire.  Many of patients tell us that they feel like their skin is dry and ask us for suggestions.  Our first suggestion for an at-home product is to add a retinoid to get rid of all those dead skin cells, which cause your skin to look dull.
  • They are not only fighting acne, but retinoids are anti-aging.  By stimulating skin cell turnover, they also stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.  The result is smoother skin, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles, but now and in the future.  Retinoids can also shrink the pores somewhat after longterm use.
  • Retinoids have been shown to decrease post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (the dark spots on your skin from old acne), while simultaneously preventing new acne from forming on your skin.
