Obagi’s anti-acne powerhouse is an A-lister for your face—as in Vitamin A, from which the key ingredient, the retinoid tretinoin, is derived. This prescription product treats acne vulgaris, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging, and may be used only under the guidance of a physician.
Trentinoin heals from the inside out, absorbing deep within skin to attack acne at the source, stimulate collagen production, and lighten scars and blemishes by inhibiting the production of pigmentation. The result? Clearer, brighter, smoother skin. You may need to use this cream consistently for 6 weeks to 3 months in order to fully experience results. In some cases, acne will temporarily get worse during the course of treatment. This is common and treatment should continue as directed.
Do not use this product on damaged or broken skin. Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating. Do not use if taking prescription acne medications or after undergoing a skin procedure such as a peel, or light and laser treatments.
