Tretinoin Gel is a commonly used topical gel with Vitamin A. It’s original indications were to treat acne, however, as many know Vitamin A has anti-aging qualities as well. It has proven to be successful in reducing mild fine lines as well as improving the appearance of dark spots on the skin.
Tretinoin gel works best when used in conjunction with other products such as hydrants and sunblocks. There are many strengths available to accommodate most skin types.
Tretinoin gel should not be used on sunburned skin or near the eyes. Your dermatologist can walk you through the best way to use your tretinoin gel-whether for acne or anti-aging benefits.
