How does Retin-A work?
When the ointment (available in cream or gel) is applied on the affected skin it can help bring the number of acne lesions under control. The aim of Retin-A is to provide a light chemical peel of the skin. It speeds up your natural skin exfoliation process and enhances collagen production by the body. When using Retin-A avoid too much exposure to the sun or artificial UV rays (solariums). Retin-A can make you skin more sensitive to sunlight resulting in sunburn.
It can also be prescribed to treat a variety of skin conditions such as, discoloration of the skin and hyper pigmentation (darkening of the skin or nails).
How do I apply Retin-A?
Retin-A gel is applied once a day depending on the severity of an outbreak on clean, dry skin. A thin layer is all that is required, a small amount of gel can go along way. Applied at night to give the treatment a chance to work while you sleep. Wash your face or infected acne area in the morning with a scrub to remove some of the flaking. It will usually take six to eight weeks to see results.
