Do you use prescribed skincare treatments? Or are you wanting to try it for yourself? Then keep reading further. I have been testing Dermatica’s Tretinoin for over 3 months now, and thought to share with you my full in depth review.
What it is?
Dermatica is an online dermatology subscription service run by our multidisciplinary team which encompasses consultant dermatologists, pharmacists specialising in dermatology, GPs, clinical researchers and formulation scientists. Dermatica uses technology to achieve something which is not possible in the traditional clinic. Your Dermatica journey starts with their free online consultation. Once that is complete, their medical team will assess your exact needs and determine the optimal treatment for your skin. Then formulate it specifically for you in their lab. As your skin changes, so does your treatment.
I was recommended the Tretinoin + Niacinamide + Azelaic Acid Treatment after I had my online consultation with Dermatica .
Tretinoin and it’s
Tretinoin is a prescription-strength retinoid that works with your skin to speed up cell turnover which regulates and promotes healthier, younger looking skin. It delivers visible results that help restore deterioration caused by age and sun damage.
• Tretinoin is proven to improve fine and coarse wrinkles by restoring dermal collagen.
• Diminishes skin roughness.
• Tightens loose and sagging skin.
• Reduces comedones, papules and pustules, and is suitable for long term maintenance therapy.
Niacinamide (also known as nicotinamide or nicotinic acid) is an active form of vitamin B3.
Niacinamide has been shown to improve fine lines and wrinkles; reduce hyperpigmentation such as age spots; and also increase ceramide production, leading to greater hydration of the skin.
Azelaic Acid and its benefits
Azelaic Acid is produced naturally by yeasts that live on skin. It is effective for treating acne as well as improving skin texture and reducing pigmentation.
Azelaic acid attacks bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes, which play an essential part in causing acne. Azelaic acid also acts to reduce the growth of the harder outermost skin cells that block pores and cause blackheads and whiteheads.
- Reduces comedones, papules and pustules, and is suitable for long term maintenance therapy.
- 20% azelaic acid cream lightens melasma as effectively as 4% hydroquinone.
I used the treatment for over 3 months. With your prescribed treatment you will get a leaflet that is going to guide you on how to use each treatment. So for the first month, I used the treatment 2 times per week, and I increased the treatment slowly to every other day. I have combination skin. I have dry cheeks and a oily T zone.
How I used the Dermatica’s treatment is as follows. After I cleansed and toned I applied my serums and on top of my serums I applied the treatment. I applied a lighter cream on top. I made sure that my skin feels hydrated and does not feels dry, as many retinols dry out ones skin.
Dermaticas treatment has changed my skin so much! Before I began using the Dermatica’s treatment. My skin was breaking out a lot, and I had a lot of breakouts and dark spots. My dark spots have faded completely, I barely break out now. This treatment has helped to keep my skin clear. I highly recommend checking their treatments out. They do so many to choose from depending on your skin concern! Do note that this treatment is quite strong, and you therefore should always consult the leaflet on how to use the product.
Dermatica kindly set up a discount code for my followers which will give you guys 1 month free and 20% off your second month! The code is ALIASAM.
