Thank you for taking the time to visit us on the web. We have found that our internet visitors are more interested in education and information which are two things very important to Advanced Skin Technology.
Green Cream, our first product, was one of the first high potency retinol products that was developed by New Orleans dermatologist Nia Terezakis, MD. We are passionate about retinoids because of her passion. Dr. Terezakis has called topical retinoids "the most important drug in dermatology" and has devoted her career to the study and promotion of this active ingredient.
There are some important facts that you should know as you are considering your skin care alternatives:
There are more third party independent clinical studies done on topical retinoids than any other active ingredient on the market.

The sheer number of independent clinical studies is important because clinicians do not study ingredients that don't work. The most common question I always get is, if retinoids are so great, why don't they dominate the beauty magazines? In a nutshell, we are a quick fix society that wants the next big thing that will work overnight. Retinoids do work, but take long-term consistent use. Most people still want to believe all the ads and promises of the over-night miracles.
- Not only are retinoids for younger looking skin, but they have been proven to address over 152 skin conditions. What was once first discovered to treat acne has become an essential healing agent for skin. Therefore, don't think of retinoids just for beauty, but for healthy skin.
- Retinoids have been used by physicians and skin care professionals for over 30 years and have been shown to be safe and effective for long term use.
The internet is rife with information and I would encourage you to do your own research on the subject. If you would like to dig deeper into our research, please visit our science page. Though you may not try our product, we would encourage you to find a retinoid that meets your needs. There is no one perfect formulation for everyone. Our primary purpose is to educate the world on the benefits of using a retinoid. Therefore, if you have questions about retinoids or other products please take the time to join the discussion on our messageboard.
We are working on a full scale website dedicated to the promotion and education of retinoids (not just our products). You can find the website at www.retinoids.org. Please be patient with us as we propogate this site.
