Retin-A is a vitamin A retinoid medication that treats acne. It works to counteract the amount of acne, as well as the severity, by affecting skin cell growth. Retin-A also helps quick healing for acne that does occur.
How to Use Retin-A
Apply Retin-A cream or gel with clean hands. Also wash and clean the area of skin you want to treat with a mild cleanser and gently pat to dry. With your fingertips, apply a thin layer of product onto your skin. Retin-A is usually prescribed for daily use. If you are using a liquid form, you can use a cotton swab or gauze pad for application. Use the amount that is recommended. Using more product will not improve your skin condition, and may actually cause dryness and irritation.
Retin-A is for topical use only. It should not be applied inside the nose, mouth, or inner lip area. Also avoid getting this product in your eyes or to a skin area with cuts, scrapes, sunburn or eczema. You should wash your hands after touching this medication to prevent touching or rubbing your eye and causing irritation. Follow your doctor’s instructions as well as the Patient Information pamphlet carefully.
Retin-A is most beneficial when used consistently. You can apply it at the same time daily to help you build it into your routine. Even if you do not see strong improvement, use this medication for the time prescribed for you. It is normal for your skin to get worse at the beginning of treatment with Retin-A, but this is temporary. Let your doctor know if you do not find the product helping your skin after 8 to 12 weeks.
Important Information about Retin-A
Do not use Retin-A if you are allergic to Tretinoin. Also let your doctor know if you have eczema.
Retin-A should only be used on the skin and not be taken orally. Do not get this medication on skin that has cuts or is chapped, sunburned or is irritated. You may find your skin to be more prone to sunburn. Minimize harsh or prolonged sun exposure or tanning. Make sure to protect your skin with sunscreen and protective clothing.
Do not use hair removal methods like waxing or electrolysis on the treated areas.
Do not use Retin-A until your skin has neutralized from acne products containing salicylic acid, sulfur or resorcinol.
Retin-A is not recommended to be used during pregnancy, or if you are breastfeeding. Double check with your doctor if you have questions about how to manage your acne during pregnancy.
Side Effects of Retin-A
Side effects of Retin-A can include heightened sensitivity to extreme weather: heat, sunlight, cold and wind can all be irritants. You may also experience skin discoloration, slight heat or a stinging sensation on the applied areas. These effects should pass as your body adjusts to the medication, but let your doctor know if it does not get better.
Serious side effects are not common, but if you experience symptoms like extreme irritation, burning, stinging, swelling, redness, peeling or blistering on the treated skin area, you should cease treatment and see your doctor.
