Retin A works faster to treat blackheads

Nov. 21, 2006 – Retin-A is an effective topical medication to treat blackheads, whiteheads, and even wrinkles. It is primarily a derivative of Vitamin-A. Retin-A works by enhancing the production of skin cell, in turn enabling extrusion of plugged matter from the follicle. It is also beneficial in minimising the production of new comedones.

The prescription acne medication Retin-A, 0.1%, starts reducing comedones (commonly known as blackheads and whiteheads) two weeks faster than the retinoid-like prescription acne treatment Differin (adapalene gel) Gel, 0.1%, according to studies.

Retin- A provides maximum strength of tretinoin with minimal irritation. It has also a fast onset of action. Patients can get therapeutic results in two to seven weeks of treatment with Retin-A. It is the first prescription product to use Enhanced Derm Technologies, Inc.’s unique Micro sponge system. This technologically advanced system entraps tretinoin in micro spheres (round microscopic particles made of synthetic polymer) and formulates them into a gel. The micro spheres hold the medication in reserve, allowing the skin to absorb small amounts of tretinoin over time. Dermatologists who conducted the pivotal clinical studies believe this may be why most Retin-A patients experience little or no irritation.

Retin-A can be applied immediately after patients wash their face, unlike Retin-A, which requires a 20-30 minute waiting period. Patients using Retin-A should not experience the same level of skin reactions as has been seen with the higher strengths of Retin-A in the past.
