Acne, wrinkles,anti aging
Tretinoin is used topically for the treatment of acne vulgaris, principally grades I-III, in which comedones, papules, and pustules predominate. Tretinoin therapy is not curative and relapses generally occur within 3-6 weeks after the drug is discontinued. Best results are usually obtained in the treatment of early stages of acne vulgaris in which numerous comedones are present. The drug is not effective for the treatment of most cases of severe pustular and deep nodulocystic acne; however, it has been suggested that it may be used adjunctively in the management of associated comedones.
Tretinoin is used topically as a 0.05 or 0.1% cream for palliative therapy to improve dermatologic changes (e.g., fine wrinkling, mottled hyperpigmentation, roughness) associated with photodamage. Clinical studies to date indicate that therapy with the drug may at least partially reverse photodamaged skin clinically and histologically. However, many patients can achieve desired palliative effects on certain photoaging-associated dermatologic changes without tretinoin by employing a comprehensive skin care plan, emollient creams, and a sun avoidance program that includes the use of effective sunscreens (minimum strength of SPF 15) and protective clothing. Therefore, topical tretinoin therapy should be used under medical supervision as an adjunct to a comprehensive skin care plan and sun avoidance program and should be reserved for patients who do not achieve the desired effects with such programs alone (i.e., without tretinoin).
