The Magic of Tretinoin (Retin-A) is Waiting or You!
If you haven't already experienced the success of Retin-A (tretinoin) for healthy, glowing, clear skin, then what are you waiting for! Anyone who has ever used tretinoin knows the feeling of satisfaction as dead skin cells sloth away and shiny, bright skin beneath is revealed. Tretinoin is famous for its ability to fade hyperpigmentation, decrease the appearance of wrinkles, help tighten and plump up skin by stimulating collagen production.
Tretinoin is also one of the most used and prescribed products for acne treatment. It works by stimulating the production of new skin cells so that old, dead cells on the surface of the epidermis can be replaced. The process by which this happens is called exfoliation. That's why it causes the skin to peel.
Tretinoin provides the building blocks for collagen production and elastin, the protein that gives skin its elasticity and prevents sagging. Imagine your skin bouncing back after sleeping with your face smushed into a pillow all night.
How Does Tretinoin Work?
Naturally derived from Vitamin A (think carrots), tretinoin is already synthesized into the correct form to be absorbed into the skin. Retinoic acid -- to be very specific -- all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), is a metabolite of Vitamin A. The metabolite is essential to skin cell growth and the body synthesizes retinoic acid/tretinoin from Vitamin A.
Tretinoin is the generic of brand name Retin-A, and tretinoin is the active ingredient in Retin-A.
When using tretinoin for acne treatment it is common during the first few weeks for your acne to appear worse because the medication works from the inside out. As new skin cells rise to the surface, they push out oil and bacteria that have been clogging pores.
It may take up to 8-12 weeks to notice results from this medication.
