What is Retin A?

Tretinoin (retinoic acid) is a vitamin A derived cream that was developed 30 years ago. It was used initially for the treatment of acne. Now, however, several important derivatives of vitamin A are used by aesthetic doctor. These include isotretinoin and acitretin.  It was found that these drugs affect cell differentiation. And, it can modify cell differentiation.This means that cells that have become undifferentiated or disorganised can be reorganised again.

 

 

Retin A Cream: Tretinoin has some remarkable effects on the structure or restructuring of skin through the following route: 1. It can increases blood flow. This is by way of new blood vessel formation 2. Cell differentiation is improved. This means that the epidermis (top layer of skin) is rebuilt because the cells become uniform and well-ordered again. So, it can reorganized a disorganized skin upper structure. Consequently the epidermis thickens up once more to a young skin. It can anti age the skin, treat a skin disease. 3. Dermal re-structuring occurs with increased production of new collagen just beneath the epidermis. So, it can reorganized a disorganized skin deeper structure, the true skin layer, the dermis. The number of small fibrils that anchor the dermis (deep layer of skin) to the subcutaneous structure is doubled after only four months of treatment with tretinoin. 4. The number of pigment-producing cells is also reduced, with clearing of mottled skin discoloration. So, it is used widely as whitening agent for a snow-white and silky smooth skin. Eventually the uneven, dry patches disappear because of the gradual exfoliation of the surface resulting in smoother skin, the silky smooth skin.
