For acne I tried tretinoin,  oral/topical antibiotics, & birth control & still get a lot of acne. Low dose accutane a great final choice?  Is it safe?

Yes: Accutane is very effective for cystic acne. It has the potential to adversely effect the growth and development of an unborn child if you become pregnant, so it is very very important that if you are sexually active that two forms of birth control are used. ...Read more

I'm a 34 yr old ex smoker but my skin is real thin for my age. Can retin a (tretinoin) thicken my skin enough that it won't tear so easily or heal so slowly?

I'm a 34 yr old ex smoker but my skin is real thin for my age. Can retin a (tretinoin) thicken my skin enough that it won't tear so easily or heal so slowly?

YouEatEnoughProtein?: Retin-A is more of an exfoliant;it gets the cells cranking faster (faster "turnover")so that it can supposedly "rejuvinate"itself.Supposedly,the lower layers will thicken.But I've noticed that there is a great deal of individual variations in response to that med.It's pretty powerful. It's supposed to help with wrinkles, like the fine ones from smoking,but you'll need a dermatologist to supervise ...Read more

Can I get renova (tretinoin) in france?

Can I get renova (tretinoin) in france?

Not legally: Renova is a us brand of tretinoin. France, as does the entire european union, has strict rules against importing non-eu manufactured prescription medications. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of Renova and you can get regular tretinoin in france very easily. Be careful with sun-exposure and use a good sunscreen with it. Start of at a low-dose until your skin becomes tolerant and ten increase it. ...Read more

Whether tretinoin and retinoic acid are the same things ?

Tretinoin: Tretinoin or Retin-A is the topical form of retinoic acid. It is commonly used for acne. Tretinoin also has rejuvenative effects on the skin namely compacting the epidermis so skin looks and feels smoother, increasing collagen content so that skin has less fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizing brown spots to provide more even coloration. ...Read more

Can I use tretinoin and benzoil peroxcide at the same time?

Unsure: "benzoyl peroxide will disable tretinoin leaving the tretinoin useless". Then there is other evidence that this is not so....http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/pmc2958193/ "there was no benzoyl peroxide-induced degradation of tretinoin when the optimized formulation of tretinoin gel (0.05%) was admixed with Benzoyl Peroxide Gel (6.26%)" . They both can dry the skin out... ...Read more
