Who it's for
What to expect
When using Tretinoin, patience and consistency is key.
In the first 2-4 weeks, your skin experiences many changes — oil glands shrinking, dry skin cells shedding, and collagen production increasing. While this happens, you might notice a temporary increase in dryness or acne that will go away with continued use.
After 3-6 weeks, you’ll notice visibly smoother skin with a more even tone. At this point, your skin will have adjusted to the Tretinoin.
After 12 weeks, your skin’s collagen is working overtime, beginning to smooth out fine lines and brighten the skin’s surface.
In 6 months, you’ll notice visibly reduced wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots, with refreshed skin that will continue to improve over time.
Tretinoin can cause some dryness and irritation, but this usually goes away over time and can be avoided by starting at a low dose.
