Tretinoin - The First 4 Weeks - Personal Experience

In my latest YouTube video I have documented my personal experience using Tretinoin 0.05 for the first time. I have filmed the progress for the 4 weeks - week by week so you can see the progress.

Tretinoin is a medication developed to treat acne and it works by affecting the growth of skin cells. I am sure you have heard of Retinol which works similar Tretinoin but it needs to be converted first to retinoic acid in order to be utilised by the body. So basically Tretinoin is already retinoic acid so you will see results much faster - unfortunately it also causes irritation in some people. There is no dose of Tretinoin proven through research studies to be best at preventing wrinkles. However, Tretinoin has been shown to be effective in improving fine facial wrinkles as well as treating acne. This medication is a derivative of Vitamin A and comes in three strengths, 0.025%, 0.05% and 0.1%

Most important thing is that you use sun screen everyday and also keep reapplying it. Also don't use any AHAs or BHAs on the days when you are applying the Tretinoin. I also found that it works best when I applied it to dry skin and then I then about half an hour later I would massage my skin for about half an hour. In the video I will show you how you can minimize the irritation and which products I have been using that have helped.
