Tretinoin 0.1% and .05% in South Jersey

While Tretinoin 0.1% and 0.05% cannot completely erase skin problems, its ability to keep pores clean and to also replace older skin with newer skin enables it to deliver amazing results for the treatment of fine wrinkles, acne, rough skin, and other skin-related issues. It’s very important that Tretinoin 0.1% and 0.05% is used only as directed, and under excellent doctor care. For South Jersey residents, that care should come from Dr. Mohit Sood, a board-certified plastic surgeon. 

What is Tretinoin?

It’s important to work with a skilled physician such as Dr. Sood when using Tretinoin, as this medicine is approved for certain specific usages, but experience has also shown it to have beneficial effects in the successful treatment of a number of different issues, from acne to fine wrinkles, dark spots, rough patches of skin, and certain other skin conditions. Tretinoin is available by prescription only, in gel, solution, liquid and cream dosage forms, and it works by lightening the skin, which results in older skin making way for newer skin. Tretinoin exfoliates your skin, which is why it is successful in the treatment of acne, because of its ability to extrude plugged debris and materials from the skin follicles. But Tretinoin goes beyond just exfoliation of your current skin, to the creation of new skin through the generation of new collagen and even the creation of new blood vessels.

What Are the Benefits of Tretinoin?

Many patients use Tretinoin for years, sometimes for decades, thanks to its anti-aging effects, and motivated by the fact that they see results they love every day in the mirror. Tretinoin has been found to smooth out and soften skin that has been inflated by acne, and it can correct fine wrinkles and sun-damaged areas by stimulating the formation of new collagen, which gives your skin an enhanced, refreshed look. By integrating Tretinoin into their daily skin care treatments under Dr. Sood’s care, many patients experience healthier skin texture, and a refreshed youthful glow to their skin.

Am I a Candidate for Tretinoin?

If you have fine wrinkles and signs of aging, then Tretinoin’s pore cleansing and collagen producing qualities can be an ideal solution to give you younger looking refreshed skin that is smooth and clear. You may also be a candidate for Tretinoin if you have acne or dark spots on your skin. Ask Dr. Sood during your consultation if Tretinoin is right for you, and learn more about the importance of always applying it to your skin at bedtime, never using it during the day, and about certain medical conditions, such as pregnancy, which might prohibit you from using Tretinoin.

What Is the Procedure for Tretinoin?

During your consultation, Dr. Sood will carefully review the usage and application procedure with you, as well as giving you clear guidance and recommendations in terms of avoiding sunlight in the treated areas, and maintaining a very careful and regular nighttime routine for using Tretinoin. It is important to use Tretinoin only as directed, and Dr. Sood will demonstrate for you how you should use the medicine. He will caution you to wash both your hands and the area to be treated with mild soap and warm water, before patting it dry, and then waiting until the skin is totally dry before applying Tretinoin. Applying Tretinoin when there is any moisture on the skin can cause skin irritation and discomfort.  If you would like a true professional to be by your side making absolutely certain that your Tretinoin treatment will go according to plan and get you the optimal results you deserve, then schedule your consultation now with Dr. Sood.
