Frequently Asked Questions
What are the major benefits of intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum?
Retinol is often recommended by skincare professionals because it truly works to help rebuild the elasticity and firmness of the skin. However, dryness and flaking are common side effects. For the first time, a breakthrough – patented technology – combines retinol with other key ingredients, including an exclusive Targeting Complex to provide firming while reducing potential irritation. Skin appears younger, firmer, and more rejuvenated. See dramatic results in just four weeks. After about eight weeks of use, skin will show a significant improvement in the appearance of fine lines, firmness, even the look of deep wrinkles.
How quickly will I see a difference in my skin?
Clinical and consumer testing conducted on intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum showed improvement after just two weeks of use.
How often should I use intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum?
Retinol is an especially intensive treatment ingredient with a long history of use in anti-aging products. For most consumers, it is necessary to build up a tolerance for the use of this powerful ingredient. Therefore, we recommend using intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum every other night for the first two weeks. It can then be used nightly.
How long will the benefits of a treatment of intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum last?
The benefits will last with continued use of the product together with a regular skincare regimen to help maintain results. Results depend on exposure to sun, free radicals, and environmental factors.
How does intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum differ from other ARTISTRY® anti-aging products?
Intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum contains an effective amount of pure Next Generation Retinol. It is the only ARTISTRY product to combine three of the most potent collagen-boosting ingredients: Next Generation Retinol, vitamin C, and peptides. It’s also the only product to use our Targeting Complex, a blend of natural extracts that delivers the benefits of retinol precisely where it’s needed, while helping to eliminate the dryness and flaking commonly associated with retinol.
What benefits do each of the key ingredients provide?
Retinol: Next Generation Retinol helps build collagen, smoothes skin, plumps out visible wrinkles, and adds elasticity and firmness back into skin. Targeting Complex: Delivers the benefits of retinol precisely where it’s needed while helping eliminate the dryness and flaking commonly associated with retinol. Vitamin C: Helps increase collagen production, clarify, and brighten. Peptides: Helps build collagen and elastin for additional anti-aging benefits.
Do you recommend using a daytime sunscreen with continued use of the intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum?
Use of an intensive retinol treatment will often leave skin more sensitive to the sun. We recommend using a broad spectrum sunscreen product to protect the skin from damaging UV rays – ARTISTRY® TIME DEFIANCE® SPF 50 Ultra Facial Sunscreen (11-6535).
What is the purpose of the ARTISTRY intensive skincare line?
The intensive skincare line of products are at-home treatments that are intended to provide noticeable benefits similar to those achieved in a visit to the dermatologist. The line was created for women who want to repair the visible signs of aging without undergoing an intense treatment or procedure.
Using ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel and anti-wrinkle firming serum together.
- One tube of the anti-wrinkle firming serum provides eight weeks of nightly treatments.
- Product is stable for three years unopened and has a shelf life of 10-12 weeks once opened and used. Store in a cool, dry place. No refrigeration needed. If you are pregnant or nursing, consult your doctor before using a retinol-based product.
- Some skincare products make normal skin types unusually sensitive and should not be used in conjunction with skincare products containing retinol, such as anti-wrinkle firming serum. When using anti-wrinkle firming serum, discontinue the use of exfoliation products and peels. Like many intensive treatment products, individuals with sensitive skin may not tolerate use of this product.
In recent testing, positive results were experienced by women when they followed usage guidelines for ARTISTRY® intensive skincare renewing peel and anti-wrinkle firming serum
as part of their skincare routine. Following the usage guidelines, women of all skin types – including sensitive – were able to safely use the products together. Alternating the use of these products in your regular anti-aging skincare routine will help diminish the signs of aging like rough texture, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. All users of ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel and anti-wrinkle firming serum
are advised not to use both products on the same day.
For the first two weeks, apply a pearl-sized amount of intensive skincare anti-wrinkle firming serum to clean, dry skin every other night, after cleansing and toning (if you typically use toner) and before moisturizing. Avoid the eye area. If well-tolerated after two weeks, anti-wrinkle firming serum can be used every night. Discontinue use if persistent irritation, redness, or burning occurs. Low humidity is drying, so retinol might be more irritating. Apply moisturizer before anti-wrinkle firming serum only in this situation. Use of facial sunscreen is recommended during the daytime – ARTISTRY® TIME DEFIANCE® SPF 50 Ultra Facial Sunscreen (11-6535).
It’s easy to incorporate anti-wrinkle firming serum into your current skincare regimen. Simply use it every evening as a treatment step:
1. Wash face with a gentle cleanser, like ARTISTRY® TIME DEFIANCE® Cleansing Treatment.
2. Use TIME DEFIANCE Conditioning Toner, if desired.
3. Once skin is dry, apply a pearl-sized amount of anti-wrinkle firming serum to entire face. It can also be applied to the neck, if desired.
4.Follow with a nighttime moisturizer, like the TIME DEFIANCE Night Recovery Creme or Lotion, or Creme LuXury.
