Retin-A Gel Tube is a vitamin A derivative used to treat acne. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. Tretinoin is used to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and mottled skin discoloration, and to make rough facial skin feel smoother.
Retin A gel 0.025 should be applied once daily at bedtime to lightly cover the areas being treated. The area of application should be thoroughly cleaned with mild soap and water and patted dry with a soft towel. Apply a small amount on your fingertip and spread it on the skin where acne lesions appear.
Avoid rubbing the medication into the skin. After 3 to 6 weeks of treatment, you may notice new blemishes. Keep using this medication as you will notice a gradual improvement over 8 - 10 weeks.
