RETIN A 0.025% GEL

 

What is Retin A Gel?

 

Retin A Gel is an oil-free topical medication designed, among other things, to treat acne, spots, blackheads, pimples and whiteheads. Given its oil-free nature, it is particularly useful for people with oily skin. While this formula is widely renowned for its results in relation to acne, patients reported to have witnessed significant improvements in their overall facial appearance as well. It may also be used as a skin lightening agent, and Retin A Gel is the only topical formula that has scientifically been proven to improve wrinkles. RETIN A 0.025% GEL is milder than its 0.01% counterpart, so if you are new to the product, or have a very sensitive skin, than perhaps 0.025% might better suit your needs.

 

How does it work?

 

RETIN A 0.025% GEL has an active ingredient called Tretinoin, which is a Vitamin A metabolite that modifies the behavior of skin cells and other intracellular receptors. In essence, tretinoin prevents the formation and reappearance of pimples and blackheads by blocking the skin's hardening processes. It also facilitates the shedding of old and hardened skin cells to better promote new skin growth.

 

How to use:

 

  • Apply the gel to the affected area once per day, preferably in the evening
  • Clean the affected area with a soap-free cleanser or mild soap before each use. Rinse and dry it thoroughly
  • Apply a small amount to the tip of your fingers and gently rub it in.
  • Do not wash or use other skin care products on the treated area for at least 1 hour after applying Retin-A.
  • Keep the medication away from direct contact with your nose, mouth, eyes and open wounds.
  • Use RETIN A 0.025% GEL for the full course of the treatment, or as advised by your doctor. It may take 7 weeks for a full treatment to be completed but signs of improvement may be visible after 2 weeks.
  • Use RETIN A 0.025% GEL continuously to maintain skin health, to prevent acne and the reappearance of other skin conditions
  • Avoid sunlight and use protective clothing when you choose to go outside.
