A New Strength of Retin-A Microgel Approved
The FDA has approved a new strength of Retin-A (tretinoin) microsphere 0.08% made by Valeant. Tretinoins are indicated for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
It is thought that tretinoins work by modifying abnormal follicular keratinization. By increasing the mitotic activity of follicular epithelia, tretinoin increase the turnover rate of thin, loosely-adherent corneocytes. Through these actions, the comedo contents are extruded and the formation of the microcomedo, the precursor lesion of acne vulgaris, is reduced.
Retin-A microgel is currently available is 0.04% and 0.1% strength. The new 0.08% strength microgel will soon be available.
