What is tretinoin?
Tretinoin is a prescription-strength retinoid used for the treatment of acne, melasma, scars and skin ageing. It is a Vitamin A derivative, and it is known in the UK under the name Vesanoid.
Photoaged skin has shown that topical tretinoin can increase the production of type I collagen by up to 80%. It has also been shown to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and prevent collagen degeneration. A systematic review concluded that the use of topical retinoin for photoaging was beneficial. It is the main drug to treat aged skin.
Tretinoin can be purchased in cream or gel form in various concentrations, including 0.025%, 0.055% and 0.1%.
What is the working principle of tretinoin?
Retinoids increase the cell turnover rate. Retinoids cause mild skin irritation, which causes cells to divide more quickly and to die faster. Tretinoin can be used to treat acne. It prevents the formation of new pimples and improves the skin’s turnover.
Tretinoin can also be used to slow down ageing. There are many reasons skin ageing can occur, including photoaging, environmental factors, loss collagen and genetics. Tretinoin’s ability speed up cell turnover makes it an effective treatment. This helps to minimize visible signs of ageing.
Is retinol equal to tretinoin?
Retinol and tretinoin work in different ways. Retinol is sometimes called an over-the-counter version tretinoin. However, they are not interchangeable.
Retinol and tretinoin are technically the same thing. Tretinoin is weaker than retinol because it must first be converted to retinoic acid before it can be used on the skin. Because Tretinoin is retinoic acid (which it is), it can be applied directly to the skin.
Tretinoin is therefore much more potent than retinol. Even the weakest strength of tretinoin can be stronger than the strongest retinol product. Results with tretinoin can be seen in 6-8 weeks. Retinol takes at least six months to see results.
Where and how do I purchase tretinoine?
Tretinoin can only be prescribed by a pharmacist and is only available as a prescription-only medication. This is not only true in the United Kingdom, but also in many other countries like France, Spain, Spain, and The Netherlands.
