Not actually a bleac: Tretinoin has some bleaching properties, but is not actually a bleach. It does enhance the penetration of other topicals, including bleaches.

How long does it take for tretinoin cream to fade post acne marks?

How long does it take for tretinoin cream to fade post acne marks?

ACNE SCARS: When you apply retin a (tretinoin) to take out scars of acne, your face will tighten, sometimes red and irritated. Then it will start peeling off the marks of acne and will smoothen the skin. Try putting moisturizers to avoid dryness.

I have freckles & I have now tried the retrieve cream and layered it on and no redness or tingling or anything? Does this mean it won't work for me?

I have freckles & I have now tried the retrieve cream and layered it on and no redness or tingling or anything? Does this mean it won't work for me?

Freckles: Usually do not cause skin cancer hence do not need to be treated. Most cream or lotion will be ineffective. Make up can be used to cover freckles. People who freckle easily may avoid exposure to sunlight and wear sunblock. If particularly concerned about looks laser treatment may be an option

How long does tretinoin cream 0.05 works for acne marks?

How long does tretinoin cream 0.05 works for acne marks?

Use forever: I love tretinoin and think that every non-pregnant person should be using this (until it expires, of course). A small pea sized amount to your entire face at night is recommended. You can use it elsewhere if desired but not overuse as will cause irritation. Works for acne, pigmentation, mild scars, and reversing sun damage. Use the right sunscreen daily and give it 6-9 months for best results.

I have used retin A (tretinoin) cream on penis head only 2 days. Now skin is rough, dead and dry. Can it be healed properly? How long will it take? What to apply?

Stop RetinA: Do not use this on the penis. It is never used there. It is always irritating. Water is OK. Use something lubricating such as vaseline or Aquaphor. It will heal in a few days.

Months: You will need to use a cream that is a mixture of tertian and hydroquinone. There are companies that mix the two together or you could obtain both creams and mix them yourself. Expect the process to take several months.

Does retrieve cream help scaring and pigment or make it worse?

Does retrieve cream help scaring and pigment or make it worse?

Tretinoin for Scars: Retrieve cream contains tretinoin. Tretinoin is most effective in the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and shallow scars. It helps speed up the removal of darkened surface skin cells leading to a more even toned appearance. It is also effective in treatment of shallow scars, such as "ice pick" scars caused by acne. It works by stimulating collagen formation in the effected areas.

When using Tretinoin 0.05% cream to reduce wrinkles, can you use other night creams as well? If so, which do you apply first and how long in between?

When using Tretinoin 0.05% cream to reduce wrinkles, can you use other night creams as well? If so, which do you apply first and how long in between?

Yes: I love tretinoin for skin rejuvenation! I generally recommend that my patients wash their face in the evening, apply a toner and then the tret. I then recommend that you wait 15 minutes before applying other creams on top of the tret. If you get skin irritation from the tret you can "cut" it with a moisturizer.

How much time does it take for a hypopigmented mark caused by tretinoin creams to go away? I have recently gotten one on my face

Varies: With the area, length of time you used mediciation. How often you applied the tretinoin. I suggest a dermatology consultation and stop using this product.

How can minocycline and tretinoin cream work together to get of acne?

How can minocycline and tretinoin cream work together to get of acne?

Acne: Minocyclin being the antibiotic stops the growth of acne causing bacteria and tretinion stops comedon blackhead formation and regenerates and exfoliates the skin.

Can tretinoin cream work on red acne bumps that are just starting to form?

Can tretinoin cream work on red acne bumps that are just starting to form?

Takes time: These topical retinoic acid creams work best long-term by causing de-differentiation of the sebaceous glands that allow acne to arise. Try using this, with or without adding topical Clindamycin if your physician thinks this is okay, for several weeks and this should help prevent recurrence.

Clindamycin cream and retin a (tretinoin) is enough to treat acne? How long should I wait to see the result?

Clindamycin cream and retin a (tretinoin) is enough to treat acne? How long should I wait to see the result?

At least 10-14 days: The combination of the two medications is reasonable for treating acne--depending upon the severity. You will need to use it for at least 10-14 days before you may see an improvement. Remember though, acne can be controlled, but nor definitively cured.

Is it safe to use tretinoin cream.01% long-term? Have used for 10 years...Great skin. Also curious whether it counts toward my daily vitamin a?

Is it safe to use tretinoin cream.01% long-term? Have used for 10 years...Great skin. Also curious whether it counts toward my daily vitamin a?

Safety long-term use: It is theoretically safe to use tretinoin long-term without adverse consequences to your skin. There is some anecdotal evidence that there is an increased risk for the occurrence of skin cancer in retinoid and retinol users who live in high sun areas. This is presumably because vitamin a derivatives increase sun sensitivity and use of sunscreen and sun protective measures are wholly inadequate.
