The fountain of youth is a myth, but so is the idea that you can do nothing about your aging skin. The majority of the skin changes we think of as aging are actually caused by sun exposure. As part of a comprehensive skincare program, RENOVA (tretinoin cream) 0.02% reduces the signs of photodamage, helping to smooth out fine facial wrinkles and give your skin a more youthful appearance. This FDA-approved prescription contains a Vitamin A derivative that works within the cell and is believed to increase collagen production and decrease collagen breakdown to improve the skin’s internal structure.
- Smoother, softer skin within 2 months of use
- Reduces facial wrinkles, including “crow’s feet,” as part of a total skin care regimen
- Vitamin A derivative may enhance collagen production for firmer, fuller skin
Apply once per day-at night. If your doctor has given you personal instructions on how and when to use RENOVA, be sure to follow them. To prepare your skin for RENOVA, first gently cleanse your face thoroughly with mild soap or a gentle alcohol-free cleanser. Pat dry (avoid rubbing). After washing, wait 20 to 30 minutes before applying RENOVA to be sure your skin is totally dry. Skin that is wet, damp, or even moist tends to absorb cream quickly, which may cause unnecessary irritation. After your face is totally dry, squeeze a pea-sized amount (about 1/4” diameter) of RENOVA onto your fingertip. Important note: using more than a pea-sized amount will not increase your results and may cause irritation. Dab it on your forehead, chin and both cheeks. Pat your skin so the small dabs begin to spread into a thin layer that covers your entire face. Smooth into skin until all white streaks have disappeared. After applying RENOVA, you can apply a moisturizer; however, for best results, wait one hour in between if possible. In the morning, cleanse your face gently. Then moisturize with a non-pore-clogging (non-comedogenic) moisturizer, preferably one with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.* It is important to protect your skin with either sunscreen or a moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher, as RENOVA may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.* You can use makeup with RENOVA, just be sure to cleanse it off at night before you apply RENOVA.
