In brief: Yes

Reducing retin a (tretinoin) dose or using a product which delivers retin a (tretinoin) (such as retin a (tretinoin) micro) can reduce redness.
This redness is usually transient and desired to some degree. Avoidance of the sun and using the product at night are other tactics. Lastly, steroid creams can temporarily aid in the reduction of this redness.
