The right formula will depend on your skin type, and how persistent your acne is on your face. A cream version is better for dry skin while a gel texture is more for oily to normal skin. It will attack those pesky spots to unclog pores, and diminish blemishes. Past acne scars are also reduces with its high level of exfoliation. Used daily it can make your acne a problem of the past.

For those with visible signs of aging:

There are numerous articles in dermatology journals and aesthetic medicine journals touting the benefits of tretinoin. Tretinoin is arguably the best topical medication for reducing the signs of visible aging. Many medical professionals feel that every person over the age of 30 should use tretinoin to prevent visible aging of the skin. We tend to agree with that bold statement.

Tretinoin takes some getting used to initially. It is best to start on a lower dose and increase as your skin becomes adjusted to the medicine. It is common for the skin to be red, flaky, irritated and dry initially. This is temporary as tretinoin goes to work exfoliating the damaged, old, dull cells and stimulates growth of new, more plump, healthy cells. As skin tolerance increases, stronger dosage can be used for even more benefit. The first 2-3 months are usually the only phase that involves a lot of peeling and turnover. It is worth sticking with, though, because the benefits are those that other creams and topical cannot deliver.

We can help with this adjustment phase! We know ways to make the adjustment less bothersome and can recommend methods such as: initial use every other night and building up to nightly use, using a smaller pea size to start and building up to a full pea size, and hydration to ease the skin.
