Tretinoin, also known as Retin-A or retinoids, is a topical cream first used to treat acne. Tretinoin is also used to treat wrinkles, blotchiness from sun exposure and aged skin. Tretinoins can smooth out the skin, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, strengthen skin’s elasticity and thickness, slow down the breakdown of collagen, and lighten brown spots caused by sun exposure. Tretinoin works by bringing skin cells to the surface to turn over and die rapidly, allowing for new cell growth.
Tretinoin is used in combination with additional skin care products. Sunscreen is highly recommended when using tretinoin. A valid prescription is required for tretinoin. A consultation with one of our Medical Aesthetics Specialists is required prior to purchasing products. A regimen appropriate to your skin will be established and follow-up appointments are always complimentary.
AestheticA features the following tretinoin products:
Obagi Tretinoin Gel .05%
Refissa Tretinoin .05%
A generic version of Tretinoin cream .1% is also available.
