FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is the first retinol treatment of its kind.
Retinol 0.5% is clinically proven by research studies to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by 30% within the first two weeks of use. Retinol 0.5% helps:
- Fight fine lines and wrinkles
- Smooth mottled or rough skin
- Aid mild to moderate acne
- Alleviate the appearance of age spots
- Maintain and build skin firmness
Retinol works largely by increasing cellular turnover and downgrading matrix metalloproteinases (enzymes that degrade collagen).
A concentrated retinol formula, FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 contains 0.5% microencapsulated retinol in a lightweight gel formula that is perfect for use together with your other favorite moisturizers. Most retinoid creams are thicker, taking up to 30 minutes to absorb into the skin. Ours feels like it absorbs in under a second, so you don't have to wait before applying other moisturizers.
FutureDerm's formula is designed to optimize the retinol activation process within the skin. Retinol must be converted to isotretinoin by enzymes called retinyl ester hydrolases in order to become active within the skin. Our formulation is designed to increase the efficiency of this process with an optimized delivery system and conditions.
FutureDerm's retinol is also microencapsulated, targeting retinoid receptors in the skin for a full eight hours. This makes FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 ideal for nighttime use.

For best results, apply a pea-sized amount to thoroughly cleansed skin the evening. Carefully avoid the eye area. If you have never used microencapsulated retinol products before, there may be a transitional period. Begin by limiting use to two times per week, and then gradually increase frequency to every other night, and finally once an evening as tolerated. As with many products, best results can be achieved under the supervision of a health care professional.
