Obagi Tretinoin is a potent type of Vitamin A that works deep within the skin to help address and prevent acne. It uses the healing abilities of Vitamin A and delivers it in an easy to use topical skincare cream. Obagi have formulated Tretinoin in a unique way with small molecules so that a higher concentration of the cream can be absorbed into the skin. When it is absorbed into the body, it is transformed to a usable Vitamin A very readily so the process of increased skin cell growth and turnover can take place leading to the growth of new collagen and elastin. This is turn leads to clear looking and healthy skin. Available in multiple strengths by prescription only to meet different needs, this powerful acne treatment has been clinically proven to improve breakout symptoms and prevent the development of acne. 

Tretinoin can be effective for treating acne vulgaris, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and premature ageing.
