How to Apply

The higher the concentration of Retin-A, the faster and more significant the results. However, it is often irritating, and for this reason many doctors start patients with the milder forms (0.025 percent to 0.05 percent cream every other night, slowly increasing the strength and frequency of application). Higher concentrations of the product work best (0.1 percent), but these are more irritating to the skin.

Teens should first wash the skin thoroughly with a gentle cleanser, pat dry, and wait 15 minutes before spreading a tiny amount of Retin-A cream over the entire face.
