Open-Label Study Evaluating the Anti-Aging Effects of a 3-Product, 2-Step Retinol-Rejuvenation System Following 3 Months of Treatment in Subjects With Photodamage.

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Photodamage to the skin occurs with exposure to sunlight (UVA or UVB) either intentionally or unintentionally, and can present in a variety of ways. It typically occurs on areas of chronic UV exposure, including the face, ears, and neck.

METHODS:

We evaluated the effects of a 3-product, 2-step retinol-rejuvenation system containing an exfoliating cleanser, a 0.5% retinol emollient cream, and SPF 30 moisturizing sunscreen used daily for 3 months on the appearance of mild-to-moderate facial photodamage in female subjects.

RESULTS:

Significant improvements in facial appearance could be observed as early as 2 weeks, with continued improvement over the duration of the study. There were no adverse events reported that were related to study product and reports of cutaneous tolerability issues were rare.

CONCLUSIONS:

A 3-product, 2-step retinol-rejuvenation system provides significant improvements in signs of photodamage and overall skin appearance, and is well-tolerated. <em>J Drugs Dermatol. 2017;16(1):23-28.</em>.
