How it works:
Tretinoin gel, also known as retinoic acid or Retino-A, belongs to the retinoid family and is derived from vitamin A. Tretinoin works by boosting the turnover of skin cells when applied topically to the skin. As we age, the speed at which our skin renews itself and replaces older cells slows down. This leads to visible signs of ageing. Tretinoin works by accelerating skin cell renewal and stimulating collagen production. This increased turnover means new, undamaged skin cells replace older, damaged cells more frequently, resulting in the gradual disappearance or significant reduction of lines, wrinkles, and other signs of ageing over time. Your skin will not only become smoother and more radiant, but also appear more youthful, and your complexion will be bright and clear.
When you begin using tretinoin for the first time, you may experience mild side effects as your skin adjusts. These can include skin redness, warmth, dryness (which can be improved by using a moisturiser), irritation, or peeling of dead skin. If you notice any of these skin reactions, don’t worry; they will stop once your skin adapts, typically after a few uses.
If you’re new to tretinoin, beginning with the lowest strength, 0.025%, is recommended. This approach helps minimise the likelihood of experiencing skin reactions. As your skin adapts to it, you may consider using a higher strength if you wish.
It’s important to note that tretinoin should be avoided if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Additionally, it’s not recommended for individuals with extremely sensitive skin, those with rosacea or prone to rosacea, or people with eczema or eczema-prone skin.
Patience is key when using tretinoin. It won’t work overnight, but if you stick to a regular and consistent routine, you’ll notice smoother and clearer skin in a few weeks. The longer you use tretinoin, the more impressive the results will become. After a few months, you’ll see a significant reduction in signs of ageing. Such as fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage etc. They’ll become less noticeable or may even disappear entirely.
It’s worth noting that these benefits come from continued use. If you stop using tretinoin, the positive results will gradually fade. So, consistency is key for maintaining the improvements in your skin.
