Classification: Skin Care
Generic Name: Tretinoin topical
Typical Brand Names: Retin A

Retin-A cream and gel contain the active ingredient tretinoin, which is a form of vitamin A used in the treatment of acne.

It is not known exactly how tretinoin works, but it is thought to loosen the cells in the surface of the skin. This helps to unblock pores, so that the skins natural oil producing glands can function normally.

In addition, tretinoin increases the turnover of the skin cells, which aids the natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. This also helps to unblock pores and decrease the formation of blackheads (comedones) and spots.

Retin-A gel is more suitable for use on oily skin, whereas the cream is more suitable for dry skin.

It may seem like your acne has got worse in the early weeks of treatment. This is due to the action of the medicine on deep, previously unseen blackheads and papules. It may take six to eight weeks before definite beneficial effects on the skin can be seen.

Retin-A Directions To Use

•  Use tretinoin topical exactly as your doctor has prescribed it for you. Using more medicine or applying it more often than prescribed will not make it work any faster, and may increase side effects. Do not use this medication for longer than your doctor has prescribed. 
 •  Wash your hands before and after applying tretinoin topical. Before applying, clean and dry the skin area to be treated.
 •  Applying tretinoin topical to wet skin may cause skin irritation. If you use Renova, wait at least 20 minutes after washing your face before applying a thin layer of the medication.
 •  Do not wash the treated area for at least 1 hour after applying tretinoin topical. Avoid the use of other skin products on the treated area for at least 1 hour following application of tretinoin topical.
 •  Applying an excessive amount of tretinoin gel may result in "pilling" of the medication. If this occurs, use a thinner layer of gel with the next application.
 •  Tretinoin topical should be used as part of a complete skin care program that includes avoiding sunlight and using an effective sunscreen and protective clothing.
 •  Use this medication for as many days as it has been prescribed for you even if you think it is not working. It may take several weeks or months of tretinoin topical use before you notice improvement in your skin. If you are using tretinoin topical to treat acne, your condition may get slightly worse for a short time when you first start using the medication. Call your doctor if skin irritation becomes severe or if your acne does not improve within 8 to 12 weeks.
 •  Store tretinoin topical at room temperature away from moisture and heat. The gel formulations of Retin-A are flammable, keep them away from open flame.

Retin-A Warnings and Side Effects

This medication can increase sensitivity to sunlight, wind and cold. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and sunlamps. Wear protective clothing and use an effective sunscreen. This medication should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. It is not known if Retin-A appears in breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

•  Stop using this medication and get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
 •  Other, less serious side effects are more likely to occur. Continue to use the medication and talk to your doctor if you have any of these side effects: burning, warmth, stinging, tingling, itching, redness, swelling, dryness, peeling, irritation, or discolored skin.
 •  Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

Retin-A Missed Dose

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as remembered; do not use if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not "double-up" the dose to catch up.

Retin-A Storage

Store at room temperature away from sunlight. Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.

Retin-A Overdose

Applying Retin-A excessively will not produce faster or better results, and marked redness, peeling, or discomfort could occur. Over dosage with other retinoid has been associated with transient headache, facial flushing, celosias, abdominal pain, dizziness and ataxia.

Retin-A More Information

If you have been previously treated with keratolytic preparations or exfoliants, you should wait until any skin rash clears up before beginning even low strength treatment. Studies of the effect of this product on pregnant women are incomplete. For this reason, it should only be applied when absolutely necessary and always under a doctor's supervision. The effectiveness of Retin-A is almost always accompanied by skin irritation. In the treatment of acne, this phenomenon is directly related to the effectiveness of the product and disappears once applications are more spaced out. Cosmetics may be used, but clean skin thoroughly before applying the medication.
