We know there are a ton of different remedies for each skin care issue, but do we know when to expect to see results with regular usage?! We, here at Renu Laser and Skin Care, wanted to take a minute to review some of the common skin care remedies and approximately how long until you can start seeing your results. Please read on for the skin care ingredient, its skincare purpose, and timeline to results.

Though each person is a case by case basis, here are some general guidelines. Please note that this is based on routine usage.

  1. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (Exfoliates): Should see results right away
  2. Ceramides (Moisturizes and Protects): Results in a few minutes
  3. Hyaluronic Acid (Plumps Skin): Results in a few minutes
