Retin A for acne treatment
Tretinoin is typically prescribed for those who have moderate to extreme facial acne. This medication is a creamy, smooth lotion that will heal damaged skin and prevent further damage when used over time. To treat acne, fine lines, fine wrinkles, and acne scars, apply this medication to the treated areas regularly for at least12 weeks.
How does Retin-A work?
Retin-A has miracle properties affecting the growth of skin cells. Tretinoin stimulates cell regrowth by doing something that may seem counterintuitive â€“ by allowing them to die. Tretinoin speeds up the processes that grow new skin cells. The benefits of Retin-A have been observed in numerous clinical trials, and the long-term effects are made possible because of these seemingly counter-productive short-term effects.
Ultimately, Retin-A promotes faster cell life cycles. When old skin cells die off, the processes to regrow skin cells are immediately started, and new, healthy skin cells will quickly take the place of the old ones. This increased turnover of skin cells prevents pores from developing blockages resulting from dirt, oil, and dead skin.
Retin A Cream Side Effects
Because of the way this Cream works, the first few weeks may see acne to worsen and the skin to become slightly irritated. Moderate irritation of the skin is normal during the first 2-3 weeks, so these symptoms are not caused for concern.
If you experience any intense burning, stinging, redness, dryness, peeling, or any side effect thatâ€™s overly severe, you should ask your doctor about how to proceed.
Other mild side effects include:
- Stinging, itching, or burning on the skin
- Skin color darkening
- Warm skin
- Dry skin
- Lightening of skin color
Lengthy exposure to the sun: This medication can leave skin vulnerable to sun damage in the first few weeks of treatment. If your daily life requires you to be in the sun for long hours of the day, it may not be the best idea to use tretinoin as a topical skin medication. Ask your doctor about whether you should use Retin-A Cream or not, and about any other potential treatments to substitute it. If you are sunburnt, do not use Retin-A to treat the affected area.
Pregnancy: Tretinoin thatâ€™s applied topically doesnâ€™t seem to have any harmful effects on unborn children in pregnant women; however, research on the topic isnâ€™t thorough enough to determine itâ€™s completely safe, and as such your doctor may recommend you donâ€™t use this medication if you are pregnant or nursing. There are other acne and skin treatments that are safe for pregnant women, and itâ€™s worth talking to your doctor to weigh the risks and benefits and explore your options.
Eczema: If you suffer from eczema or another kind of skin condition, Retin-A may irritate your skin further and cause more problems. Consult your doctor to see if this medication is safe to use.
