We want to make sure you fully understand your treatment. Below outlines the benefits, expectations, and risks with Tretinoin Formula.
Tretinoin is a very effective medication that works in a variety of ways to treat acne. It helps skin cells shed properly, thereby preventing clogged pores. It promotes collagen production and may help with mild scarring over time. It also has great anti-aging benefits for the skin. Redness, peeling, and skin sensitivity can occur, but following the instructions below will help minimize these side effects. Peeling is not necessary for tretinoin to be effective. Your skin will adjust to the medicine over time.
Tretinoin should only be applied to your skin once a day, before bedtime.
Note: If this is your first time using a retinoid it is best to start using it every other night for the first 2-4 weeks, then increase to nightly use as tolerated.
If you become pregnant while taking this medication, discontinue use immediately and message your doctor for an alternative.
