Non-Prescription Alternative form of Vitamin A (Tretinoin or Retin-A)

Tretinoin or Retin-A is a prescription strength Vitamin A cream. It is commonly prescribed for acne and as an anti-aging treatment. As an anti-aging treatment, it can be used alone or it can be used with any type of skincare program to enhance the effects of that program. It helps to reverse sun damage referred to as photodamage, fine lines and wrinkling, mottled hyperpigmentation and skin roughness. It works in the deeper layers of your skin where it can help increase the production of collagen and elastin. Tretinoin can cause side effects like redness, flaking and peeling and many patients find it just too aggressive for their lifestyle.

Retinaldehyde is the immediate precursor to retinoic acid

Avene Retrinal 0.05% Cream  and Avene Retrinal 0.1% Cream contains stable and powerful concentrations of retinaldehyde and is a healthy alternative to Tretinoin (retinoic acid). Retrinaldehyde is the immediate precursor to retinoic acid and has been clinically shown shown to reduce the visible signs of aging without the usual side effects. It is a natural retinoid and is naturally absorbed and used by the skin. It can help restore radiance and improve your skin’s texture and tone.
