What is Retino-A used for?

Retino-A cream 0.05% is used to treat acne vulgaris by preventing the formation and spread of pimples and blackheads (comedones). Retino-A cream 0.05% is also used to help reduce visible signs of ageing on the face by fading age spots and reducing fine wrinkles, as it promotes skin turnover to replace old damaged skin with new skin. Retino-A cream 0.05% also has a potential use for treatment of alopecia (hair loss).

How does Retino-A work?

Retino-A cream 0.05% contains tretinoin which is an active metabolite of Vitamim A and is a keratolytic medication that affects the way skin cells behave, reducing symptoms of acne as well as age spots and fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging. Retino-A cream 0.05% prevents formation of new pimples and blackheads (comedones) by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increasing the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells. The combined effect of these actions is to speed up skin cell turnover, clear up pimples and blackheads and reduce the spread of acne. This also works for aging or damaged skin where age spots and fine wrinkles are replaced by new skin cells giving the effect of lightening and smoothing the skin.

Retino-A is recommended for use by many dermatologists in addition to using minoxidil for the treatment of alopecia or hair loss. It is thought that Retino-A enhances the effect of minoxidil on hair growth by increasing its absorption into the skin, due to its blocking action on the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification). Dr Adam Lewenberg investigated the beneficial effects of tretinoin on hair growth and markets a combination of minoxidil and tretinoin, known as the Lewenberg formula.
