What is Truth Treatments 5% Retinol Gel?
Our 5% Retinol Gel is a highly concentrated, intensive skin resurfacer. This potent weekly treatment was created for more tolerant skins with more severe signs of aging, sun damage, and acne who want to achieve dramatic, visible improvements to the skin.
Why doesn’t your 5% Retinol Gel require a prescription?
The main difference between our 5% Retinol Gel and its prescription counterparts is the type of active Vitamin A. Our Retinol Gel uses retinol as the active ingredient that gets converted into retinoic acid in the skin, which is the active ingredient found in prescription creams. This additional step of converting the retinol into retinoic acid dramatically reduces the negative effects associated with prescription treatments - such as sun sensitivity, redness, burning, and irritation - while providing the same skin regenerating results.
How should I use 5% Retinol Gel?
Apply a half pea-sized amount to freshly cleansed, damp skin. For maximum efficacy, we recommend combining the Gel with 1-2 pumps of our Biomimetic Priming Mist and mixing them together with your fingers to emulsify. Massage into skin until fully absorbed. For dry skin types, follow with Transdermal C Balm or Omega 6 Healing Cream for added moisture and skin soothing.
To buffer the activity or reduce any potential irritation, combine equal parts 5% Retinol Gel with Omega 6 Healing Cream, mix in the palm of your hand, and apply as directed above.
How often should I use 5% Retinol Gel?
Because of the high concentration of retinol in this treatment, it is not recommended for use more than once a week. Results can even be seen using as little as once every other week.
What if I experience redness and irritation with this treatment?
Our 5% Retinol Gel is a very potent skin regenerating treatment, so for skins that are not very tolerant or used to retinol use, some irritation or redness is possible. Some flaking is normal with use of Retinol, and can be alleviate with the use of our Omega 6 Healing Cream or Transdermal C Balm.
If you experience redness or irritation with this treatment, treat skin with our Omega 6 Healing Cream. Moving forward, simply reduce the frequency of application (we do not recommend using it more than once a week) and buffer it with our Omega 6 Healing Cream or Transdermal C Balm. You’ll still get all the anti-aging benefits without the irritation.
What makes Truth Treatments 5% Regenerating Retinol Gel different from other retinol products on the market?
Like all Truth Treatments products, our 5% Regenerating Retinol Gel is formulated with only active and functional ingredients - no filler, waxes, preservatives, or emollients. That means this entire formula penetrates deeply to affect cellular change in the skin. We’ve also included Vitamin C in this formula to support healing and reduce irritation. And unlike other products that need to be used nightly, our 5% Retinol Gel only needs to be used weekly to experience tighter, brighter and clearer skin with a reduction in breakouts and blackheads.
What results will I see when using Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel?
After even the first use, you’ll wake up to skin that is brighter and smoother from this formula’s resurfacing benefits. With continued use, you’ll see skin that is firmer with a reduction in lines, wrinkles and sun damage. For those that struggle with acne, you’ll notice a reduction in clogged pores and acne, with a quicker healing period and less post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).
