Retino-A (Tretinoin) Cream 0.05%

Retino-A is tretinoin cream. Tretinoin cream is a popular treatment for acne and other skin conditions. It is applied directly to the affected areas of skin and can be very effective when over-the-counter treatments have been unsuccessful.

Clearing up chronic acne can be difficult, and many times over the counter products arenít powerful enough. One of the gel products that may be prescribed for it is Tretinoin Cream. This is a topical product that is applied once per day in thin layers to the affected areas. It is important not to use it too much or that can dry out the skin and result in excessive peeling. Donít put this medicated product on thick either as that will clog the pores and hinder success.

Many users of Tretinoin Cream find that their acne will get worse before it gets better. It is still a good idea to continue using it though unless the doctor tells you to quit. It can take from 2 to 6 weeks of use before the benefits from this product are going to be known. Donít continue to use it after 6 weeks of there arenít any results that you can see in terms of reduced acne. If that is the case, talk to your doctor about other options.

Only apply Tretinoin Cream after cleansing the face. Make sure that a clean cloth is used to apply it to prevent the spread of bacteria. Avoid excessive exposure to UV rays when using this product as the skin will be very sensitive. Avoid the wind as that can cause the skin to become dry and to crack. Use moisturizers that donít contain harsh ingredients in them.

The skin may have a tingling sensation to it when Tretinoin Cream is applied. Should the skin be very sensitive though then a rash could occur. If that happens, make sure you talk to your doctor about it. Since certain types of cosmetics can irritate the skin, it is recommended to only use those that are made from natural minerals while using this product.
