Retinol Peel Increases Lipid Film on Face, Neck

TUESDAY, March 31, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Retinol peel treatment can help increase lipid film in women aged 50 to 69 years, according to a study published online March 24 in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.

Aneta Wójcik, M.D., from the Medical University of Lodz in Poland, and colleagues assessed the impact of retinol peel treatment on face and neck skin lipids in women aged 50 to 69 years. Sebumeter SM15 was used to measure the level of secreted sebum on the forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, and neck before each of three retinol peel treatments applied at three-week intervals and three weeks following the final treatment.

The researchers found that in the study group there was a significant increase of lipid film in both the U-zone and the T-zone and in the neck.

"Our study shows that the complex retinol with vitamin C may contribute to skin surface lipids regeneration, thereby leading to enhancement of barrier function and alleviating skin dryness associated with menopause," the authors write.
