Tretinoin Gel Vs Cream

tretinoin gel vs cream

Descriptions

One of the tretinoin creams is used to treat fine wrinkles, dark spots, or rough skin on the face caused by damaging rays of the sun. It works by lightening the skin, replacing older skin with newer skin, and by slowing down the way the body removes skin cells that may have been harmed by the sun. Tretinoin works best when used within a skin care program that includes protecting the treated skin from the sun. However, it does not completely or permanently erase these skin problems or greatly improve more obvious changes in the skin, such as deep wrinkles caused by sun or the natural aging process.

How does it work?

 Retinol Gel has an active ingredient called Retinol, which is a Vitamin A metabolite that modifies the behavior of skin cells and other intracellular receptors. In essence, Retinol prevents the formation and reappearance of pimples and blackheads by blocking the skin's hardening processes. It also facilitates the shedding of old and hardened skin cells to better promote new skin growth. The Gel is both a cleanser and a moisturizer that contributes to a softer and smoother skin.

Precautions

During the first 3 weeks you are using tretinoin, your skin may become irritated. Also, your acne may seem to get worse before it gets better. It may take longer than 12 weeks before you notice full improvement of your acne, even if you use the medicine every day. Check with your health care professional at any time skin irritation becomes severe or if your acne does not improve within 8 to 12 weeks.

You should avoid washing the skin treated with tretinoin for at least 1 hour after applying it.

Avoid using any topical medicine on the same area within 1 hour before or after using tretinoin. Otherwise, tretinoin may not work properly or skin irritation might occur.

Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, it is especially important to avoid using the following skin products on the same area as tretinoin:

  • Any other topical acne product or skin product containing a peeling agent (such as benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, salicylic acid, or sulfur)
  • Hair products that are irritating, such as permanents or hair removal products

How to Use
