What Are the Benefits of Retin-A Micro?
Retin-A Micro is a topical Vitamin A solution used to treat acne. While it is not a cure, it does help to control it. It works by promoting unclogging pores, reducing discoloration associated with acne and smoothing skin by exfoliating the outer layer and promoting peeling. It is a time-proven medication, so there is a lot of good information out there regarding it. Its generic name is tretinoin.
It starts to clear up acne in as little as 2 weeks from when you start to use it.
Using Retin-A Micro can help with self esteem and other mental health issues stemming from the psychological concerns from having problem acne.
Retin-A Micro is also used in patients with keratosis follicularis (small red bumps) and verruca plana (flat warts).
Your acne will most likely get worse before it gets better. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has classified Retin-A Micro as Pregnancy Category C, so you will have to speak to your doctor before using it while pregnant.
Clean your hands before applying the solution. Wait 20 to 30 minutes after washing your face before applying the solution. Since Retin-A Micro can cause photosensitivity, it is important to use proper sunscreen to avoid damage (SPF 15 or higher).
