What is Tretinoin (generic Renova) and what are its uses?

Renova is a topical form of vitamin A.Renova helps the skin to renew itself more quickly and therefore reduces pimple and blackhead formation, and may improve the appearance and texture of skin.

Renova is used to treat acne and to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and mottled skin discoloration, and to make rough facial skin feel smoother.

How does Tretinoin (generic Renova) Works (Mechanism) ?

Renova contains the active ingredient tretinoin, which is a form of vitamin A used in the treatment of acne.

It is not known exactly how Renova works, but it is thought to loosen the cells in the surface of the skin. This helps to unblock pores, so that the skins natural oil producing glands can function normally.

In addition, Renova increases the turnover of the skin cells, which aids the natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. This also helps to unblock pores and decrease the formation of blackheads (comedones) and spots.

It may take six to eight weeks before definite beneficial effects on the skin can be seen. 

Dosage: How should you take Tretinoin (generic Renova) ?

Renova is usually applied to the skin once a day before you go to bed; do not take these products by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label; do not use more often than your prescriber has recommended. Applying too much topical Renova may irritate or increase the irritation of your skin, and will not give faster or better results.

The procedure for use of Renova
First gently wash your face with a mild, non-medicated soap before applying. Pat the skin dry. Wait 20—30 minutes for your skin to dry before applying Renova in order to minimize the possibility of skin irritation. Squeeze about a small pearl-shaped amount (¼ inch or less) onto your finger. It should be enough to cover the affected area lightly.

Avoid applying Renova to your eyes, ears, nostrils, angles of the nose, and mouth. It is recommended that you use a facial moisturizer that will not irritate your acne and contains a sunscreen (at least SPF 15) every morning after you wash your face and apply Renova. Discuss the proper use of moisturizers and cosmetics with your health care prescriber.

Have you skipped your Renova dose?
If you miss a dose of Renova, skip that dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not use extra doses of Renova, or use for a longer period of time than directed by your prescriber or health care professional. Use of too much Renova can cause skin irritation.

If you use too much of Renova?
An overdose with Renova is unlikely to occur.
Incase of an overdose with Renova or if Renova is ingested seek medical emergency immediately.
