What makes this product unique?
Combined with potent antioxidants, CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment is specially formulated to smooth and firm skin by helping to boost healthy cell regeneration and stimulate collagen production. Its light, silky texture absorbs quickly and goes to work immediately to refine pore size as it reduces deep wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots. Also excellent for reducing breakouts. Licorice, oat extract and other anti-irritants help to minimize the irritation some people may experience from products containing high amounts of retinol. You’ll be amazed at how much younger and radiant your skin will look and feel.

When first using, apply no more than three times per week, at night. Increase frequency to every other night and, finally, every evening as tolerated. Regardless of how often it is used, apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing and toning. Avoid the lips, direct contact with the eye, and corners of the eyes. You may apply up to the orbital bone of the eye area. For best results and to reduce the risk of irritation, it is best when used with our cleanser, toner, serum, and daytime and nighttime moisturizers.
If irritation occurs, reduce frequency of use or mix one pump of this retinol treatment with your favorite Paula’s Choice serum or moisturizer. If irritation persists, discontinue use. Protect skin daily with sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater, or layer sunscreens (moisturizer, foundation with sunscreen, and pressed powder with sunscreen) if they are all rated SPF 15 or greater (and greater is better).
May be applied at the same time as your AHA or BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds. If you notice signs of irritation, apply your exfoliant in the morning and this treatment at night or reduce frequency of application of this retinol treatment.
TIPS AND TROUBLESHOOTING:
Can be worn under or over moisturizer.
May be combined with any prescription retinoid product, including Renova, Retin-A, Refissa, Differin, Tazorac, or Avita. Discontinue or reduce frequency of use if irritation develops or persists.
Despite the many benefits retinol has, there is no single �best� anti-aging ingredient for skin. The retinol in this product is combined with other anti-aging ingredients for optimal results. The antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients in this formula were chosen for their well-researched track records and history of being able to improve multiple signs of aging. We’ve also included potent anti-irritants to ensure compatibility with sensitive skin.
Remember, not everyone’s skin will be able to tolerate a high percentage of retinol, especially if you’re already using a prescription retinoid or other skin-care products that contain retinol.
