How to Use Tretinoin Cream
Tretinoin cream can be used to treat acne and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles, enlarged pores, and dark spots. It works by clearing out pores and keeping them clear, and by encouraging faster skin cell turnover rate. If you want to use tretinoin cream for acne or wrinkles, ask a dermatologist what concentration would be best for your skin. Stick to a routine, applying cream 2-3 times a week before bedtime at first and then ramping up to daily use. Keep in mind that your skin is likely to get redder and flakier within the first 2-6 weeks of using tretinoin before it gets better and it can take 8-24 weeks to see results.
