Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that helps the skin renew itself. Tretinoin topical (for the skin) is used to treat acne, to smooth rough facial skin, and to reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and mottled skin discoloration. Tretinoin topical may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Refissa is a topical cream with Vitamin A derivative which after combined with other ingredients, is effective for skin conditions. However, for the cream to effectively work, one has to totally avoid sunlight. Under all circumstances though, the doctor reserves the right to recommend other possible means of approaching skin care therapies that may prove to work.
