Skin concern: fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, blotchy skin.

DERMAdoctor solution: Poetry in Lotion®, designed to maximize skin rejuvenation with minimal side effects.

Key ingredients:

- High-potency retinol 1%: Helps increase dermal thickness and collagen production. Refines complexion and aids in firming skin.

- Plantago lanceolata: Thought to enhance collagen production and wound healing, in addition to antioxidant and anti-irritant benefits.

- Edelweiss extract: Used for antioxidant and free radical-scavenging properties.

- St. John's Wort leaf extract: Source of powerful irritation-soothing flavonoids.

- Phytosphingosine: Anti-redness and skin-firming properties.

- Elderberry flower extract: Antioxidant rich in bioflavonoids and anthocyanins.

- NDGA and oleanolic acid: Target redness and inflammation.

- Mallow extract: Moisturizes and calms inflamed skin.

- Meadowsweet flower extract: Anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits.

- Evodia rutaecarpa fruit extract and Indian frankincense: Shown to have a soothing effect on inflammation.

- Moisturization complex: Cyclomethicone provides an effective protective barrier against dehydration while safflower seed oil, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, glycerin, bisabolol, oat kernel extract and Ceramide-2 work to inhibit dryness and peeling typically associated with topical retinoid use.

How to use: Limit initial use to no more than every other night. Gradually increase frequency to every night as tolerated. Wait 20 minutes after washing to apply a pea-sized amount to skin. Avoid simultaneous application of other topical treatments/moisturizers.
