Light super-fast absorbing vitamin A serum that rejuvenates skin at its most optimal time – at night. Contains 0.6% retinol supported by vitamin E for significantly enhanced stability as compared to other retinol products. Helps stimulate the production of collagen and increases levels of epidermal hyaluronic acid, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in targeted areas. Skin sagginess, roughness and hyperpigmentation are also improved; leading to a more youthful skin appearance.
0.6% strength is suitable for those who have already been using retinol as part of their regime and are looking for higher strength, if new to retinol we suggest 3 TR.
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then every day. After cleansing in the evening, apply 4 drops of Retinol 6 TR directly onto face. Alternatively, place a drop on your finger and then blend into the skin. Leave to absorb before applying your regular Medik8 hydrator.
Consult with your GP before commencing a retinol regime if pregnant, lactating, undergoing skin peeling procedures or taking prescription medication for acne.
