Tretinoin Gel 0.1%, Menarini, A-Ret contains the highest concentration of tretinoin, the most prescribed ingredient by dermatologists for treating skin diseases. This concentration is intended for use by experienced retinoid users, as the likelihood of experiencing side effects increases with higher strength.

How to use Tretinoin Gel 0.1%, Menarini, A-Ret:

Gentle Cleansing: Start by washing your face with a mild cleanser and warm water. This step is essential to remove impurities and prepare the skin for the application of tretinoin.

Gentle Drying: After washing, pat your face gently with a soft towel to dry it, avoiding excessive rubbing. Allow the skin to dry completely before applying tretinoin.

Even Application: Apply a small amount of tretinoin gel to the face, avoiding the eye and lip area. It is important to apply tretinoin in a thin and even layer. Do not use too much, as this can increase the risk of irritation.

Bedtime Application: Tretinoin gel 0.1% should be applied before bedtime, as it is photosensitive and can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. This allows the substance to act effectively overnight.

Sun Protection: The next morning, wash your face with a gentle facial scrub or a damp towel to remove visible flakes. Then apply a water-based moisturizer. If possible, use a moisturizer with sunscreen to protect your skin from UV radiation. If not, apply separate sun protection before sun exposure.

Managing Peeling: If peeling occurs during the day, do not peel it off but use a damp compress or mild cleanser to remove dead skin. Then reapply moisturizer.

Common side effects:

  1. Dryness: Tretinoin gel can cause dryness of the skin, leading to peeling and flakiness.
  2. Irritation: At the beginning, it is common to experience redness, itching, or irritation in the treated skin area.
  3. Burning or stinging: Application of Tretinoin gel may cause a temporary burning or stinging sensation on the skin.
  4. Increased sensitivity to sunlight: Tretinoin makes the skin more sensitive to sunlight, increasing the risk of sunburn. It is crucial to use sunscreen and protective clothing during sun exposure.
  5. Peeling: The medication can promote the shedding of dead skin cells, resulting in visible peeling.
  6. Erythema (redness): Tretinoin may cause redness, particularly in the early stages of treatment.


  1. Avoid Sun Exposure: Tretinoin makes the skin more sensitive to sunlight. Use sunscreen with a high SPF and protective clothing to minimize sun exposure. Avoid tanning beds and prolonged sun exposure.
  2. Gradual Introduction: Start with a lower concentration of Tretinoin cream or gel and gradually increase as your skin becomes accustomed to the medication. This can help minimize initial irritation and side effects.
  3. Use Gentle Cleansers: Choose a mild, non-abrasive cleanser for cleansing the face. Harsh cleansers can further irritate the skin.
  4. Moisturize: Apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer to alleviate dryness and minimize peeling associated with Tretinoin gel use.
  5. Limit Other Skin Treatments: Avoid using other potentially irritating skincare products, such as products containing salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, or vitamin C, unless recommended by your healthcare provider.
  6. Do Not Use on Irritated or Broken Skin: Do not apply Tretinoin gel to irritated or broken skin. Wait until the skin has healed before starting or resuming treatment.
  7. Use with Caution on Sensitive Areas: Be cautious when applying Tretinoin gel 0.1% around the eyes, mouth, and other sensitive areas. Avoid contact with mucous membranes.
  8. Consultation with a Healthcare Provider: Before starting tretinoin usage, consult with a healthcare provider or dermatologist. They can assess your skin condition, medical history, and provide personalized recommendations.
  9. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Tretinoin gel is known to have potential risks to the fetus during pregnancy. It is generally not recommended for use during pregnancy, and women of childbearing age should use effective contraception during treatment. Breastfeeding women should also consult their healthcare provider before using Tretinoin gel.
