General Info

Description

A-Ret® Gel is manufactured by Menarini. This is a topical treatment for moderate to severe acne. A-Ret® Gel has potent anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties, thus it reduces the number and severity of acne lesions. It also unclogs the pores preventing new breakouts. The active ingredient of this medication is Tretinoin, also known as all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). This is a naturally occurring derivative of vitamin A (retinol) of retinoid class.

Acne (also called acne vulgaris) is an inflammatory skin disorder characterized by clogged pores, inflamed pimples, whiteheads, cysts, non-inflamed comedones, and possible scarring of the healed outbreaks. It is caused by a rapid growth of P. acnes (Propionibacterium acnes) bacteria. When skin is oily and there is an excess of dead skin cells on the skin surface, pores get clogged forming the positive environment for P. acnes proliferation. The immune response to P. acnes bacteria overgrowth causes inflammation and acne progression. Genetic predisposition and increase in androgen hormones are among the most common reasons of acne.

A-Ret® Gel in higher dosage (0.1%) is used to treat photoaging, fine wrinkles, and facial skin roughness. It is also can be used off-label to treat melasma, actinic keratosis, ichthyosis, keloids, and keratosis follicularis.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Tretinoin acts as a comedolytic and anti-inflammatory agent and works by unclogging blocked pores. In particular, it modifies the abnormal follicular keratinization and promotes the turnover rate of dead epithelial cells (constituents of the outermost skin layer). With the exfoliation of keratinized skin cells, the content of blocked pores releases and the overgrowth of P. acnes starts reducing. Tretinoin also makes epithelial cells divide faster causing the comedones to be pushed out of the blocked pores more rapidly.

Dosage

A-Ret® Gel is for external use only. Do not apply to your eyes, mouth, inside of the nose, private parts, and any other mucosal surface.

A-Ret® Gel is normally applied 1-2 times daily, usually for 6-8 weeks at least. In case your acne has not improved after 8 weeks of treatment, discontinue the A-Ret® Gel use and seek medical advice.

How to use A-Ret® Gel:

1. Wash your hands and the affected areas with mild soap or cleanser, pat dry.

2. Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected areas with your finger tips or a cotton wool.

3. Gently rub until the gel is mostly absorbed.

4. Wash your hands after the gel application.

Precautions

Do not let A-Ret® Gel collect in folds of the skin, such as where your nose meets your face.

Do not apply A-Ret® Gel to the irritated, itchy, cracked or burnt skin (sunburns and windburns included).
