What do Retin-A, Renova and Retinol Do?
They help to exfoliate the dead skin cells, stimulate collagen activity and increase blood supply to skin cells. It also helps to even out skin tone giving a more uniform appearance to the skin. Sun damaged skin improves. Acne can improve. The results are better texture and quality, less fine lines and a more healthy glow to the skin.

Like any medication Retin-A and Renova, as well as the non prescription Retinols can have side effects. Most common are flaking, dryness, redness and stinging. It is often recommended to start with a retinol and gradually move on to the stronger products to minimize any possible irritation.

The bottom line is that Retinol is usually considered much less potent than Retin-A or Renova. There are, however, some very good quality Retinol products that can have successful results.
