Description

What is Retin A?

Retin A Cream (Tretinoin cream) is a prescription medication which is used to treat pimples and acne and to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, roughness and improving skin color. Retin A Cream affects the growth of skin cells but will not reverse the ageing from sun exposure or repair sun-damaged skin.

This medication is used to control acne but it does not cure it. During the first 7 to 10 days of use, your acne may get worse and regular use of this cream is needed before you will see a visual improvement. When used to treat wrinkles, spotty discoloration or rough skin, it can take between 3 and 6 months before noticeable improvement. 

How to use Retin A Cream

Before using Retin A Cream, you should gently clean your face with a mild  cleanser and then pat dry your skin. Wait between 20 and 30 minutes after cleaning before applying a small, pea sized amount of cream to your face. This will be just enough to cover your entire face lightly. Take care to avoid your eyes, nostrils and mouth. Do not wash your face or apply any other skincare products for at least an hour after using this cream.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Gently clean your face before you begin using a mild or soap-less cleanser. Pat  your skin dry and wait 20 between 30 minutes before applying the Retin A Cream.
