Retinoic Acid Gel for Acne, Acne Scars, Wrinkles
Retinoic acid 0.05% Gel is a type of retinoid that has many benefits for the skin.
Uses of retinoic acid gel:
- for acne - unclogs pores and has anti-inflammatory property
- for wrinkles - by increasing collagen production
- for acne scars - helps exfoliates skin
- for psoriasis - slows cell production
Before you start using retinoid, inform your dermatologist if you have any of the following conditions:
- Pregnancy. There haven’t been enough controlled studies yet to evaluate tretinoin’s safety during pregnancy. If you’re pregnant, or plan to be, discuss the potential harms and benefits so you can make an informed decision.
- Breastfeeding. It’s not clear whether tretinoin can pass through breast milk.
- Sun exposure. Tell your doctor if your job requires you to spend a lot of time in the sun.
- Medications. List all the medications you’re currently taking, including anything you put on your skin. It’s important for your doctor to know if there could be any interactions with tretinoin.
Directions for use:
Apply thinly on whole face at night or every other night as tolerated. Apply sunscreen and moisturizer in the morning.
You may notice retinoic acid gel starting to work within 2 to 3 weeks, but it can take 6 weeks or more to experience the full benefit.
If you don’t see improvement within 12 weeks, or if you have significant improvement and wonder if you should start using it less frequently, talk to your doctor.
Retinoic acid may cause initial stinging, or irritation. Best to start applying gradually, 2x a week for 1-2 weeks, then 3x a week, until every night application is tolerated. Avoid direct sun exposure and always wear sunscreen.
