Tretinoin creams and gels are topical medications used for the treatment of acne and skin conditions like fine wrinkles, skin discoloration, and roughness. They belong to a class of medications called retinoids and work by increasing the turnover of skin cells, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells, and preventing clogged pores. This leads to an overall improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin. Tretinoin creams and gels may also have anti-inflammatory properties, making them beneficial for inflammatory types of acne. They are available in prescription-strength formulations in various concentrations. It is essential to follow the instructions provided by a healthcare professional when using these medications to achieve optimal results and avoid potential side effects. Common brand names for tretinoin cream include Retin-A, Renova, Refissa, Atralin, Avita, Altreno.
