In general, Retin-A is most effective in older patients who have some fine facial wrinkles, or blotchy pigmented areas caused by sun damage. However, Retin-A is often prescribed to younger, active individuals who want to combat the aging effects of sun exposure. Patients who are planning to have a chemical peel treatment are often instructed by their doctors to use Retin-A as a preparation treatment; Retin-A thins the skin's outer layer, allowing the acid solution used in a peel treatment to penetrate more deeply and evenly. Retin-A is not recommended for pregnant women or nursing mothers, because its effects on the fetus and nursing infant are still being studied. Patients from the Portland metro area and Southwest Washington can receive Retin-A treatments from a licensed aesthetician in The Medical Spa at PeaceHealth Medical Group.
