Preventing Aging with Renova (tretinoin)
Anything that builds collagen will OVER TIME help to prevent skin aging in the form of wrinkles and loss of elasticity (sagging). So yes! It makes sense to start it early (assuming you tolerate it well) and keep using it forever.
Tretinoin (Renova) is STILL the gold standard in anti-aging skin care products. If you use tretinoin, you must, must, must use it with sunscreen (SPF 30 with at least 10% zinc or titanium) every single morning! Remember though, it won’t help with sagging and wrinkling due to loss of fat and bone. That loss of volume can be replaced either with Sculptra or fillers like the Juvederm/Restylane family of hyaluronics.
