Tretinoin Cream For Dark Spots
First evaluate: First have a dermatologist evaluate this for possible mealnoma. Renova (tretinoin) cream provides one agent to help diminish dark spots but truly effective lightening may require more agressive treatment with hydroquinone and/or corticosteroids and/or chemical peels as well as cessation of hormonal preparations.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes and no: Renova (tretinoin) is tretenoin isis for acne both pimples and blackheads and whiteheads. It is also used to treat fine wrinkles. It does not do much for dark spots. Theoretically if the spot is superficial and it is used for a long time it might peel away at the spot to help some but don't hold your breath.
It may: Kojic acid is an agent that helps to decrease darkly pigmented areas. Retin a (tretinoin) along with the kojic acid can augment the effectiveness in reducing areas of hyper pigmentation. Remember to practice safe sun exposure by always wearing a good sunscreen to prevent further pigmentation.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm using tretinoin cream for my acne for 3 months and they are getting worse, and becoming black and bown spots! What should I do!?
Spironolactone: Normal menst.? For adult women the best way to control acne is SPIRONOLACTONE, an anti-androgen. Often combined with certain BC pills, some much better than others. Often also combined with tretinoin. After a few months, isotretinoin may be used if not clear. None of these if pregnant. Spironolactone will also slow or stop hair loss. Very safe and costs only $5 a month.See 2 more doctor answers
Where can I get tretinoin cream from and will they help fade Fordyce spots on the penis permanently? Any reduction in size or fadement would help.
See doctor: Trentinoin cream must be prescribed by a doctor but is unlikely to help with fordyce spots which are deep in the skin and not really spots. They are small sebaceous glands and are quite normal and do not need treatment. Some doctors burn them off with laser or cautery but that can leave scars.See 2 more doctor answers

Age Spot Treatment: Renova, (tretinoin) in my opinion, has no place in treating any skin condition. Retin-a replenishes collagen & reduces wrinkles. To treat spots requires hydroquinone. This can be used alone, but is best combined with retin-a, an Alpha hydroxy to remove abnormal cells, a pH restorer and a sun block. The obagi nu-derm system is the best way to do this.

Depends on goals: Tretinoin cream is most comonly prescribed for acne, wrinkle reduction and oily skin. Changes in the skin can be seen within 24 hours and often times dose adjustments will need to be made. A daily sunblock should be used as the skin becomes more sensitive. Treatment times vary from weeks to months depending on strength and frequency of application. Check with your prescriber to evaluate.
Less turnover: Tretinoin cream improves skin cell turnover and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. In addition, tretinoin can improve excess sebum production. Cessation of tretinoin can lead to a reversal of some of the benefits. Not all patients respond to tretinoin creams and others can have overdrying effects.
Not many: Tretionin is a medication to treat moderate to severe acne. If you have been told that you need it you may want to see a doctor and talk about it because it or other options. Over the counter you can find cleanesers, acne soaps and various products to keep your skin clean but they won't have the same mechanism of action than tretionin. If you acne is mile start out by getting those otc products.
Yes: Most people experience dryness of the skin when using retinoid products. It is the way they work, but sometimes an uncomfortable side effect.
