Glo therapeutics are highly advanced skincare and chemical exfoliation treatments that use unique formulations in potent concentrations to clinically transform the skin. The core of this brand is the glo Complex, consisting of spin trap, carnosine, amla and niacinamide. This powerful blend accelerates results while preventing free radical damage, combating inflammation and supporting skin structure.
Chemical exfoliation: Chemical exfoliation with glo Chemical peels offers the ability to customize treatments for each patient and achieve subtle, gradual or dramatic transformations. The goal is to properly exfoliate the skin while assisting the healing and regeneration process.
Potent antioxidants: Free radicals are a natural response to injury of the skin. If uncontrolled, free radicals will attack new tissue and inhibit the skin renewal process. Products from glo therapeutics contain the antioxidants required to defend against these free radicals.
Skincare Systems: glo therapeutics skincare products help you prepare for professional skincare procedures with distinctive ingredients that are chirally correct, pharmaceutical-grade and free from dyes and parabens.

Retin-A, or tretinoin, is usually most effective in older people who exhibit fine facial wrinkles and sun spots. In some cases, it may be prescribed to younger people who want to counteract the aging effects of sun exposure. Because Retin-A thins the outermost layer of skin, Dr. Rand might recommend Retin-A as preparation for a chemical peel in order to allow the peel to penetrate deeper and more evenly.
Can I use Retin-A as a long-term anti-aging treatment?
Long term use is commonly recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Retin-A is one of the few products actually shown to cause microscopic beneficial changes in the skin.
What concentration of Retin-A should I begin with?
To decrease the chance of irritation, some patients increase the concentration gradually, starting with the 0.025 percent strength followed by the 0.05 percent strength before going to the 0.1 percent.
