What is Tretinoin?
Tretinoin is a member of a group of medicines known as retinoids. It is effective because it positively affects the growth of skin cells.
In some cases, ReFissa can be used to treat acne problems. Our team at Pristine Medical Spa will help you determine if ReFissa is a good product for you to use.
Some of ReFissa’s benefits are:
- Diminishing fine wrinkles.
- Fading irregular pigmentation from sun damage.
- Smoothing skin.
- It’s the only 0.05 percent strong tretinoin cream that’s fragrance-free and contains a moisturizing/emollient base.
ReFissa is typically used at night after you have washed and dried your face.
You may have some flaking, minor redness and irritation in the first weeks of using ReFissa. But these mild side effects will disappear as your skin gets accustomed to tretinoin.
After this transition period, you will begin to see smoother skin with softer texture. Any pigmentation issues will lighten and fine wrinkles will begin to fade.
As you enter the third and fourth months of use, most patients see great improvement to their skin.
To get the best results, ReFissa should be part of your overall skin care regimen. Our team at Pristine Medical Spa will help you develop a skin care plan that will allow ReFissa to work its magic and give you optimum results.
To ensure ReFissa results continue, it’s best to use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Those who use ReFissa should stay away from:
- Exposure to the sun, tanning beds and sun lamps.
- Facial and hair products with alcohol, menthol, astringents, lime or spices. These all can irritate your skin.
- Soft face waxes.
- Chemical peels.
How to Use ReFissa topical
Wash your face with a mild cleanser. Then pat your skin dry. Wait about a half hour before applying ReFissa. Use just enough ReFissa so that it covers your whole face, but lightly. Be sure to keep ReFissa out of your eyes, nose and mouth.
ReFissa should not be used by pregnant women, or women who may be trying to become pregnant.
You may feel a warm sensation or a slight sting after first applying ReFissa, but these feelings should ease quickly. Extreme cold or windy conditions may also bother your skin.
If you want to improve the health and look of your skin, ReFissa treatment may be the product you are looking for.
