Renova is one of several Retin-A prescription drugs containing tretinion (technicallyâ€¦all trans-tetinoic acid), which is an acid form of Vitamin A, as the active ingredient. In skin tretinoin, is the form of Vitamin A that can actually affect cell production by binding to the tretinoin receptor sites on the cell. There is a great deal of research establishing that when skin has been damaged (often by exposure to sunlightâ€¦sun damaged kin causes abnormal and mutated cell production) tretinoin is effective in improving cell production. Tretinoin is a valid method (and is the only agent approved thus far for treatment of photoaging, also works to prevent it) for addressing wrinkles and, overall, improving cell production. What it does is that it affects and improves cell production deep in the dermis, far away from the surface of the skin. Applying tretinoin doesnâ€™t produce miraculous results, but the positive outcome in terms of skin health is indisputable. However, it is highly possible that using tretinoin on the skin that it will cause irritation, which is a major drawback of this drug. More on Vitimin A in the future.
