Dr. Dean Kane Q & A
Q. I use tretinon cream 0.25 but I want Botox. Is it safe to still use tretinon? Also how often should I be using it?
A. Skin wrinkles and lines are formed from 4 elements: epidermis, dermis, fat and muscle. Both Botox and Retin-A are a classic combination to anti-age the skin.
Botox is a muscle relaxer to balance facial expression and reduce the traction on the overlying skin creating the wrinkle.
Fillers are injected directly into the dermis to fill or project the wrinkle line itself.
Retinoids including Retin-A are a wonderful anti-aging cream which stimulates exfolliation and renewal of cells and cell function of the epidermis and dermis.
These and more options are available depending on the depth and breadth desired for rejuvenation.
Go forth and conquer! I wish you well!
