Topical retinoids which are administered to patients with mild and moderate acne are derivatives of vitamin A, and is currently considered as the cornerstone of therapy for patients with skin problems.

  • Tretinoin - the first retinoid designed specifically for outdoor use. Tretinoin is a natural retinoid. It gradually cleanses the pores and prevents the accumulation of fat in them, and other contaminants in the future. Previously, many patients complained that tretinoin has on the skin excessively violent impact. New drugs for acne, which include tretinoin significantly less likely to cause skin irritation. However, they can cause side effects such as redness, scaling, dryness, itching, and burning of the skin. When such problems should talk to a dermatologist - often they can be overcome by changing the dose or frequency of use of the drug.
