Retin-A

Retin-A (Tretinoin) skin preparations are a brand of drugs all related to Vitamin A. In general, tretinoin gels are stronger than tretinoin creams because the medicine has better epidermal absorption when in a gel form. Tretinoin is used to treat acne and aged, sun damaged skin. Tretinoin works best when used in combination with alpha hydroxyacid preparations. If used over a period of years, tretinoin will continue to reverse aging of the skin and can continue improving the skinís appearance even ten years after starting treatment.

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Retin-A

USES: This medication is used in the treatment of acne. It reduces the formation of pimples and promotes quick healing of pimples that do develop. This medication may also be used in the treament of wrinkles and aging skin by thickening the dermis layer of the skin.

HOW TO USE: Patient instructions are available with the product. Read them carefully before using. Apply a thin layer to affected area at bedtime. Use a gauze pad or cotton swab to apply the liquid. Wash hands immediately after use. Using this medication more frequently or in excessive amounts does not improve the results, but may increase side effects. Avoid applying near the eyes, mouth, or open cuts since this medication can irritate sensitive skin. Even though acne may appear to worsen when Tretinoin is first used, continue therapy. It may take three to six weeks before the full benefits of this medication are seen.

SIDE EFFECTS: Immediately after applying Retin-A, the skin may feel warm or mild stinging or redness may occur. Some peeling of the skin may occur. These effects should subside as your skin adjusts to the medication. If they persist or become bothersome, inform your doctor to discuss other options. This medicine may also increase sun sensitivity. Be sure to wear sun block or sun-protective clothing if you are consistently exposed to the sun. Notify your doctor if you experience: blistering, crusting, redness, severe burning or swelling of the skin. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

PRECAUTIONS: This medication can increase sensitivity to sunlight, wind and cold. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and sunlamps. Wear protective clothing and use an effective sunscreen, with an adequate spf. Use mild soap when washing your face. Do not wash face excessively. Abrasive soaps, cleansers, medicated creams or lotions can increase skin irritation and redness. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about their use.

THE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT RETIN-A:

  • Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). Retin-a topical can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result. Use a sunscreen (minimum SPF 15) and wear protective clothing if you must be out in the sun.
  • Avoid getting this medication in your eyes, mouth, and nose, or on your lips. If it does get into any of these areas, wash with water. Do not use tretinoin topical on windburned, dry, chapped, irritated, or broken skin. Also avoid using this medication in wounds or on areas of eczema. Wait until these conditions have healed before using tretinoin topical.
  • Use this medication for as many days as it has been prescribed for you even if you think it is not working. It may take several weeks or months of tretinoin topical use before you notice improvement in your skin. If you are using tretinoin topical to treat acne, your condition may get slightly worse for a short time when you first start using the medication. Call your doctor if skin irritation becomes severe or if your acne does not improve within 8 to 12 weeks.
DRUG INTERACTIONS: Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

OVERDOSE: If overdose of Retin-A is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. This medicine may be harmful if swallowed. Symptoms of overdose may include excessive redness, peeling, and general skin discomfort.

NOTES: Cosmetics may be used, but clean skin thoroughly before applying the medication.

MISSED DOSE: If you miss a dose of Tretinoin, use it as soon as remembered; do not use if it is almost time for the next dose, instead, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not "double-up" the dose to catch up.
