WHAT IS Stieva-A Cream (TRETINOIN)?
Tretinoin, also known as all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), is a naturally occurring derivative of vitamin A (retinol). Retinoids such as tretinoin are important regulators of cell reproduction, proliferation, and differentiation and are used to treat acne and photodamaged skin and to manage keratinization disorders such as ichthyosis and keratosis follicularis. Tretinoin also represents the class of anticancer drugs called differentiating agents and is used in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).
Tretinoin is a medication used to treat some forms of acne. Tretinoin works by encouraging the skin’s outer layer to develop faster and be replaced with new skin cells, reducing the growth of blackheads, whiteheads, and other acne lesions. It may take several weeks for your acne to clear up, and the full effect of this medicine may not be apparent for another 8 to 10 weeks.
