A-Ret Gel (Tretinoin) + Perfect Skin Hydro-complex


A-Ret Gel (Tretinoin) is an acne and skin treatment which works by helping to maintain the cleanliness of the pores. Perfect Skin hydro-complex is used to supplement the diet, and works by providing the body with all the necessary minerals and antioxidants needed to promote youthful skin. A citrus bioflavonoid combined with vitamin C is added. Vitamin C plays a vital role in the biosynthesis of collagen, as it stimulates the peroxidation of lipids, a process which contributes to collagen formation.

Collagen is also provided, as there have been studies conducted which showed that if administered orally, it may increase skin elasticity. Another ingredient, HA (hyaluronic acid) is distributed throughout the skin after absorption. It is believed to have benefits in the treatment of wrinkles and marionette lines. Other ingredients include green tea, grape seed extract and minerals. This dietary supplement is used by women who wish to maintain the health, youth and natural appearance of the skin.

A-Ret Gel (Tretinoin) is a topical form of vitamin A. It has been widely used as a comedolytic agent, to help treat acne comedones (pimples). Recently, it has become popular due to reported cosmetic benefits in the treatment of very fine wrinkles, coarse skin and other forms of photoaging (premature aging caused by sun exposure). However, it will not work for deep wrinkles. Its mechanism of action involves helping with the skin`s renewal process. Other uses for which it has been studied include keratosis follicularis and verruca plana.

Dosage and Administration

A-Ret Gel (Tretinoin) is for topical application to the skin. It comes as a gel, and is therefore considered most suited for skin that is dry. Before use, wash the face using a mild cleanser and gently dry it with a clean, soft towel. Allow the face to dry for a further 10 to 15 minutes before application. Physicians generally recommend application of a pea sized amount once per day, at night. However, if redness occurs, the physician may recommend a reduced frequency of application.

Perfect Skin hydro-complex is provided in capsule form. Your physician will assess your current health and medical history, and if it is deemed suitable and effective, a dosage regimen will be determined for you. Adults are normally directed to take one capsule alongside a glass of water. However, it is very important not to take more than the recommended dosage, as this will not improve your skin but could increase the possibility of side effects.

Side effects

Topical application of A-Ret Gel (Tretinoin) might result in some of the following side effects:

  • Dryness
  • Photosensitivity
  • A slight stinging sensation

Tell your physician if any reactions occur. Remember that the examples listed above are only some of the possible reactions, and other side effects are possible.
