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.
