IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
- Do not use if pregnant.
- Avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds, and sun lamps.
- Be sure to apply broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every morning. Tretinoin will make your skin more sensitive to the sun, especially during the first 6 months of use.
- Redness, peeling, and skin sensitivity can occur, so it’s best to ease into treatment. Your skin will adjust to the medicine over time.
HOW TO USE
- Dot a pea-sized amount of your topical treatment on your forehead, cheeks, and chin.
- Evenly spread the treatment across your face. Avoid your eyelids and the corners of your nose and mouth.
- Apply a moisturizer either immediately before or after you apply your topical treatment.
- If your skin becomes irritated, reduce frequency of use. If the irritation persists, stop the medication and contact your dermatology team.
- The most common side effects of tretinoin are redness, mild burning, dryness, stinging, peeling, and sun sensitivity. Skin irritation usually goes away during the course of the treatment.
HOW TO STORE
- Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of reach of children.
