Tretinoin has been clinically proven to effectively repair photodamaged skin and eliminate acne. Tretinoin creams are used to treat fine wrinkles, dark spots and rough skin on the face caused by damaging rays of the sun. Tretinoin is the only prescribed treatment for acne and photodamaged skin that works at a cellular level. Obagi Tretinoin penetrates the skin and actually helps to correct the DNA found in the skin cells to correct photodamage.
Tretinoin (anti-oxidant Vitamin A cream -- brand name Retin-A cream) improves the deeper collagen layer, by restoring health and thickness to this layer as well as improved blood supply. This results in smoother, firmer skin and helps eliminate fine wrinkles. Your skin will look and feel smoother and softer.
Patients new to an advanced skincare program are encouraged to start with 0.025% tretinoin cream nightly to help condition the skin. This can be used daily or every other day. Once the tube is used up, you can advance to 0.05% tretinoin cream nightly, or for those with more sensitive skin, continue the use of 0.025% tretinoin cream.

Please follow instructions carefully to avoid any harsh skin reactions. Wash with a mild, non-medicated cleanser. Do not scrub. Allow skin to dry to 20-30 minutes before applying Tretinoin. It is important for skin to be completely dry to minimize irritation. Apply Tretinoin every night or every other night with Obagi NuDerm Blender as directed by a physician. Use only half an inch of cream to spread over the face. Do not oversaturate the skin. Avoid the corners of the nose, mouth, eyes, and open wounds. If excessive peeling or irritation occurs, then reduce use to two nights a week. If redness, swelling, or irritation continues, discontinue use. Tretinoin takes time to work deep within your skin. Some discomfort or peeling may occur in early days of treatment. This should subside in 2 to 4 weeks. By 3 to 6 weeks, acne may worsen. This is normal. Continue using Tretinoin and you should notice an improvement in 6 to 12 weeks.
