retin-a or strivecton????

I was wondering if anyone has used retina or strivecton and what are your opinions? Does one work better than the other? I have been using retin-a for a while and need to renew my prescription, but I was thinking of trying something different. Can't say that I have seen any real results with the Retin-a. By the way, does anyone know why they no longer make Renova? Thanks.

Re: retin-a or strivecton????

I haven't used either but I have read such good things about Stri-vectin and one of my friends used it. The success rate is in the high 90s for even deep wrinkles. My friend's face changed dramatically in only about 2 weeks using it. After 2 months, I have to say her skin looks as if she is 20 years younger. So this is on my list for my next trip to Bloomingdale's. If you do use it, let us know how it worked.

Strivectin are one of the best wrinkle reducers. Many people i know swear by it. Never tried it myself though

Re: retin-a or strivecton????

don'tlikethecold, how many times a day does your friend use strivecten? I just started using my tube and it says use up to 3 times a day on face, but no more. I definately don't wash my skin 3 times during the day.

And what is the active ingredient in this product?

Re: retin-a or strivecton????

Alpha Derma CE is the best wrinkle reducer I've ever used. I saw much better results than Strivectin. I have been using it for a few years and everytime I strayed to try something new I always go back to it. It reduced my wrinkles and not only that, it also tightened up my skin and made it look more youthful. People always ask what I use on my face because they think I look 10 years younger than my age.

Re: retin-a or strivecton????

I use to use a cream with Dmae in it and it does work like a facelift in a jar, really tightens up the skin and then I read reports where it slows down skin cell renewal, the fibroblasts, so I quit using it just recently.

Now I'm deciding between Alpha Hydroxy or an over the counter Retina product. Alpha Derm Ce sounds like a great product except for the Dmae.

It just so confusing what to use with all the products out there, it boogles the mind.
