Are you still dreaming about perfect skin? Here it is your savor Retin A (Tretinoin)! There are two forms of drug gel and cream, it has different concentration. The 0.25%, 0.05% and 0.1% as the strongest version. The drug is used for treatment of the skin especially fixes post acne traces and helps cleanse the skin overall.
In addition, it is widely used by women for wrinkles and pigmentation removal. I would recommend consulting with dermatologist before you decide to use this drug. It may give side effects and it restricted to use it if you are pregnant.
How to use Retin A correctly!
I have started to use Retin about a year ago and I can say for sure that the drug gives amazing effects but you need to be patient. It helped me to remove those awful blemishes from acne that I had. Moreover, my mom is very pleased! The drug really reduces wrinkles and her skin is not so prone to age process.
You need to remember that you need to use Retin only at night. The drug is considering as very strong and effective, but it does not work when the sun’s rays hit, and it can even provoke burns. That’s why it is recommended every morning to use protection creams with at least 15 SPF.
Important to know:
Please note, that Retin A has a drying effect and exfoliates, its task is to cleanse your skin of a ridge and excess fat. Also, pay attention to the skin care products that you use every day. If they have a strong drying effect, it is better to switch to more moisturizing products and to Cetaphil, which is well known dermatological product, can be bought in every pharmacy.
Don’t be scared in a first 2-3 weeks, all your acne and comedones can become worse… You just need to continue the treatment. This is normal process; the drug helps to wake up all your bad stuff, which seats in the skin, that’s why first weeks you will not notice the improvement effect. Continue using Retin A and you will see that it really works, but needs more time. In addition, if you have pimpled body, you can mix it with for ex. body lotion and it will give you great results.
You should remember that you cannot use Retin A if you are pregnant; if you are breastfeeding, if you have wounds and burns, and do not take vitamin A supplements.
