Retin-A gel is an acne treatment. Retin-A contains tretinoin which is a form of vitamin A. Retin-A is used topically on the portions of skin that are affected by acne.
What is Retin-A?
Retin-A (tretinoin) gel is a derivative form of Vitamin A which contains tretinoin. Retin-A gel 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 and spots. For these reasons, Retin-A gel is used as a treatment for acne.
How to use Retin-A?
Retin-A (tretinoin) gel is recommended to be used once daily. Usage more often than this may cause redness, peeling, or discomfort.
