Tretinoin

For Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Tretinoin is a prescription-only medication that increases collagen in the skin. Our Board-Certified Dermatologists will review your consultation within 24 hours, and the Tretinoin will arrive at your door within 3-5 business days.

Strengths

Tretinoin ranges in strength from 0.02% to 0.1%. Lower strengths of prescription Tretinoin are effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles (and there is less risk of irritation). In patients who have previously used higher strengths or have oily skin, a higher strength can be very well-tolerated.

Possible side effects

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot use Tretinoin. If you plan to become pregnant, Tretinoin must be stopped at least 1 month prior to trying to become pregnant.

Tretinoin is only to be used on the affected skin, as prescribed by your dermatologist. Do not get Tretinoin in your mouth, eyes, vagina, or the corners of your nose.

Possible side effects of Tretinoin include skin dryness, redness, flaking or peeling skin. If you begin to develop these side effects (or notice another possible side effect) stop the Tretinoin and notify your dermatologist through the patient portal.

Tretinoin can increase photosensitivity.  Minimize exposure to the sun and use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
