How to use it
Follow all instructions for use and dosage from your prescribing physician. After thoroughly cleansing your face at night, wait approximately 20 minutes. Wash and dry your hands, then apply the cream evenly over your entire face (and neck and/or chest if directed). Gently smooth it in until it is absorbed, avoiding eyes and mouth. Do not apply to open wounds. Wait another 10-15 minutes before applying any other skincare products. Use 2-3 times per week when beginning treatment; use can be gradually increased to daily as skin tolerance increases. Using tretinoin will increase sun sensitivity. Make sure to avoid long exposure to the sun and to use full-spectrum sunscreen daily; do not use UV-light tanning services. Apply the product at night; retinoid products break down quickly and become less effective with sun exposure.
