Exponent Beauty Retinol Serum Before and After Images

We all expect a lot from our retinol products — they have to renew the skin, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dark spots, minimize breakouts, and do all of this without irritating the skin. The latter is extra challenging, especially for easily reactive complexions. We created the perfect solution: our Time Rewind Retinol Serum which benefits the skin without irritation. Since we're all about facts and proof, we measured the effects of our retinol in clinical studies and evaluated the subjects with Visia Images Analysis. Read on for statistics that will make you glow.

About Our Time Rewind Retinol System

Generally, retinol is a vulnerable ingredient that degrades every time it's exposed to the daily environment. This powerhouse is also often associated with skin irritation. We wanted to create a product that doesn't lose potency, still delivers all of the retinol benefits, but doesn’t trigger any reactions and works for even the most sensitive skin.

“Retinol is the most fragile of the antioxidants, disappearing rapidly once exposed to light and air. It also has a reputation as irritating. We wanted our serums to not only deliver peak potency in every dose but at an optimal concentration for clinically-proven decreases in fine lines and wrinkles without irritating the skin.”

- Liz Whitman, Exponent Founder

Exponent Time Rewind Retinol Serum is housed in a system that prevents the degradation of actives by preserving the ingredient as a powder until activated by the Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator. Each dose releases a precise amount of retinol powder and hyaluronic acid, transforming into a Superior Serum that's both corrective and preventative. With 0.25% retinol in every dose, our Time Rewind Retinol Serum stimulates cell turnover to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth texture, and diminish breakouts. Plus, it has been clinically tested that it can be used nightly for noticeable improvements without irritation. This is good news for everyone, especially for those who have sensitive skin or have never tried retinol before, (if that’s the case, check out: how to use retinol).

Benefits of the Time Rewind Retinol Serum:

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Evens tone and texture
  • Induces collagen production
  • Firms and smooths 
  • Gentle enough for sensitive skin

Retinol Before And After Results

An independent clinical testing facility ran a 4-week study in which 29 women applied the Exponent Time Rewind Retinol Serum. By the end of the study, the subjects were assessed with Visia Image Analysis Pro and data was analyzed and evaluated upon completion of the testing period.

As you can observe, there's a significant reduction in facial fine lines and wrinkles and a substantially improved tone and texture.

Statistics of our retinol results after a four-week treatment period:

  • 100% of subjects showed a clinically significant decrease in global facial fine lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks
  • 76% of subjects showed a clinically significant increase in skin firmness after 4 weeks
  • 76% of subjects showed a clinically significant increase in elasticity after 4 weeks


Cross-polarized and UV lighting are used to record and measure surface and subsurface skin conditions such as sun damage, wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores, redness and more.

At Exponent we take results very seriously, so we decided to see how our Time Rewind Retinol Serum measured up on some local users. We enlisted multiple people who, for one week, only used a light cleanser and moisturizer on their skin to create a clean slate. Next, they added Exponent Time Rewind Retinol Superior Serum to this simple routine for just two weeks.⁠ To measure our success, we took before-and-after photos using a clinical grade imaging technology machine. Here are the incredible results:

Before using Time Rewind Retinol Serum, imaging reveals subdermal broken collagenous fibers (those small yellow lines), which can lead to future wrinkles. After two weeks of using Time Rewind Retinol, there is a noticeable decrease in the amount of broken collagenous fibers.
