How much does renova (tretinoin) cream cost?

How much does renova (tretinoin) cream cost?

Forget Renova (tretinoin): Renova (tretinoin) does little of what you want it to. Instead see a plastic surgeon specializing in facial rejuvenation. Retin-a, the main ingredient in Renova (tretinoin) is prescriptive because it penetrates the skin to actually work. You will have some irritation at first, but your surgeon can help yu through it to wonderfully rejuvenated skin. I prefer the Retin-A combined in the obagi nu-derm system. ...Read more

Gel more potent: Prices are arbitrary, not based on actual cost of production, but determined but what the market will bear. Shop around. When a patient of mine in not covered by insurance for this I can sometimes find it for $25 for 100 Grams. Look for OTC ADAPALENE, generic for Differin, which will soon be sold OTC. It is better than tretinoin. Price not yet known but likely to be reasonable. ...Read more

Heard that renova (tretinoin) cream made by galderma labs, and is a cheaper one, where can I find it?

Heard that renova (tretinoin) cream made by galderma labs, and is a cheaper one, where can I find it?

Renova (tretinoin) Worthless: Renova (tretinoin) is Retin-A mixed with mineral oil to reduce the redness caused by Retin-A when you first start it. The redness is necessary for the Retin-A to work and the mineral oil is bad for your skin. The fact that you get no redness simply means that you are not getting any change. The redness goes away, but you you get the change you desire. Retin-a is best when combined. See a plastic surgeon. ...Read more

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.
