 retinoic ointment in cosmetology
 Retinoic ointment used in cosmetics for the treatment and prevention of acne, certain dermatoses, and aging of skin. But it is not a cosmetic and a drug, so its use can only be prescribed by a doctor dermatologist-cosmetologist.


Why retinoic ointment attracts attention beauticians

The first drugs based on retinoids have been used in the early 70-ies. Retinoids - a biologically active substance obtained by activation of retinol (vitamin A).

It is known that vitamin A is actively involved in the regulation of metabolic processes in the skin. Therefore, it is usually added to many cosmetic products, mainly in facial creams.

Retinoids are more active than vitamin A, and therefore they are used as active substances in medicaments. For example, in the Russian pharmaceutical preparation for topical retinoic ointment, there is a retinoid isotretinoin. Isotretinoin has an active effect on the skin, but at the same time has a number of contraindications and side effects. In addition, the effect of retinoids on the skin is not fully investigated, so apply retinoic ointment without a prescription is not necessary.

But in beauty salons, beauticians, doctors use retinoic ointment, but strictly on the evidence, considering the contraindications and possible side effects. Assign retinoic ointment in the treatment of acne, rosacea, perioral dermatitis - these diseases are specified in the instructions to the drug. Recently, retinoic ointment increasingly began to exchange for facial rejuvenation.


Treatment of acne

The main indication for the use of retinoic ointment is the treatment of acne Acne treatment: how to get rid of blackheads  Acne treatment: how to get rid of blackheads
 . 0, 05% or 0 to 1% retinoic ointment applied as part of a specific treatment or course in monotherapy.

When applied to the skin of retinoic ointment isotretinoin partially absorbed directly through the skin epithelium and partly through the ducts of the sebaceous glands. For the treatment of acne more important is the second way. Retinoid isotretinoin thus concentrated in the hair follicle, exerting a regulating effect on sebum production and its chemical composition - the result is a less sebum and it becomes less viscous.

At the same time inhibits the proliferative (cell multiplication) of the surface layers of the sebaceous glands, they are less peel. It accelerates the process of maturation and differentiation of cells of the middle layer of the skin - the dermis - the cells promotes skin renewal and inhibit the formation of her gross scars from acne.

All this contributes to the fact that removed the main cause of acne - increased saloobrazovaniya holes and blockage of the ducts of the sebaceous glands and the subsequent development of infectious-inflammatory process.

But retinoids are slow, so they prescribe long courses at 1-1, 5 months. This beautician to observe the reaction of the skin to the applied drug. The action of retinoids to the skin is not fully understood, and it is not clear, for example, why in one - two weeks after the start of treatment, some people develop a worsening of the disease, while others treatment is without any side effects.

This feature makes retinoic ointment the doctor for each patient individually to select the frequency and duration of use of the drug. Usually retinoic ointment administered twice a day, applying a thin layer on clean skin. At the beginning of treatment the ointment is applied in two or three days, and just make sure it is complete portability, moving to two-single application.
