Table of contents:

Renova Cream (generically known as Tretinoin) is a form of Vitamin A that is used to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing roughness, and improving skin color. It is a prescription medication and should be used under the guidance of a dermatologist.

Tretinoin helps the skin renew itself and treat fine wrinkles and spotty skin, but it does not "cure" these conditions. It is also used to treat acne. It stimulates collagen production, increases cell turnover, and is effective for all skin types.

Use and Dosage

To use Renova Cream, start by washing your face with a mild or soap free cleanser and pat your skin dry. Wait for 20-30 minutes before applying a pea-sized amount of cream, using just enough to lightly cover your entire face. This should typically be done once a day before bedtime, or follow the instructions given by your dermatologist. Be careful to avoid your eyes, nostrils, and mouth. Do not wash your face or apply any other skincare products for at least 1 hour after applying the cream.

Use Renova Cream exactly as prescribed by your dermatologist. Using more than the recommended amount or using it more often will not give you better or faster results and may increase your risk of developing skin irritation and sensitivity.
