Tretinoin Cream - Overview

Tretinoin, marketed under the names Altreno, Retin-A and other brands, is a metabolite of Vitamin A metabolism and is used in the treatment of acne vulgaris. People in need of a tretinoin prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe tretinoin gel, including tretinoin cream 0.025%, tretinoin cream 0.05% and tretinoin cream 0.1%, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Tretinoin Used For?

What is tretinoin and what is it used for? Tretinoin cream is indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris. The exact mechanism of action of tretinoin gel is unknown although it may have something to do with the fact that tretinoin activates three types of retinoic acid nuclear receptors. Additional evidence indicates that topical tretinoin cream may decrease microcomedone formation with reduced cohesiveness of follicular epithelial cells with the added effect of comedone extrusion. Tretinoin is similar structurally to adapalene.

Tretinoin Gel / Cream - Dosage

Tretinoin gel is white to pale yellow in color and opaque in appearance. Tretinoin cream is typically prescribed in the form of all-trans-retinoic acid and is a metabolite of naturally occurring vitamin A. Tretinoin microspheres are available as tretinoin 0.04%, 0.08% and 0.1% gels. Often, the recommended protocol is to administer a thin layer of tretinoin cream once a day at night to places on the skin where lesions occur. Tretinoin prescription medication should generally be kept at 20° to 25° C and the pump should be stored upright. Depending on one's insurance, some or all of the out-of-pocket costs of tretinoin cream may be covered. Tretinoin coupons may also be available online if someone is looking to reduce the costs of the medication. Tretinoin ointment is combined with the drugs fluocinolone and hydroquinone to form Tri-Luma cream (used in melasma treatment).
