Tretinoin is derived from Vitamin A. It is used to treat acne to prevent the formation and spread of acne, pimples, and blackheads. It is also used to treat sun-damaged skin pigmentation. It works by removing dead skin cells, increasing collagen production, plumping out skin therefore leaving younger, brighter and more youthful skin cells.
Retin A Micro Gel is used also to treat sun-damaged skin, pigmentation, hyperpigmentation, sun/age spots and reduces excessive oil production in the skin.
Apply a pea-sized amount at night time, avoiding the corners of your eyes mouth and nose.
