I have seen my acne get better and some of the lines and sun damage lessen or look like they did. Had no problem with peeling or redness.

I've recently started using this medication to reduce pore size and help with sun damage (pigmentation) on my face. I am am using other medications too for rocasa. I am impressed after only a few weeks. A few large pores are smaller and my fine wrinkles between my eyes appear less deeper. I plan to adjust my dosage to every other day if redness or excessive peeling begins. Very expensive!! and not covered by my insurance. Worth the cost! 50th birthday present to myself

Skin doctor prescribed for redness of the face (not rosacea). Makes my skin very dry, red, bumpy and itchy. Looks worse than before. You can't use it near eyes, nose or mouth so I don't understand how it can work on fine lines and wrinkles, if these ARE the spots that have wrinkles! VERY EXPENSIVE and I think not worth it. If you read carefully the info it says that all (if any) benefits reverse to the old when stop using this cream. Also, too many side effects and dangers to the health. Just not worth it.

I have used Renova for over 10 years when in my 50's many people stopped me to ask what I used on my skin as it would always look fresh and smooth with very little wrinkles. So to me this is a wonderful drug for wrinkles and putting collagen back. LOVE IT!

I have treated minor skin cancers with this drug, and they have disappeared. Very effective.

Along with a skin care routine (per my dermatologist), Renova has minimized fine lines and other signs of aging which were escalating since I hit my 50's. My face is still drooping but the fine wrinkles are not as bad as they were and not progressing. Skin is smoother and clearer. I am using a lot of moisturizer due to the drying effect. Love this stuff. It is helping me maintain a bit younger appearance. Concern: How long can I use it?

After about the first 3 months my skin began to look smooth, soft, and less wrinkles. Definately the best product I have ever used for my skin. It actually works!

I have been using this for 2 years. I have found that it is very effective for fine lines, shrinking pore size, improving texture and with excessive pigmentation. It does cause a lot of peeling and redness and irritation. It took about 6 weeks before my skin adjusted to this medication.

I have used this for over 2 years and skin is smooth and wrinkle free except for above upper lip. It did not remove a few old age spots BUT I didn't get any more. It is expensive but at my age worth it, no side effects noticed.I am continuing to use it daily
