Retin-A micro

The vehicle and delivery system are different in Retin-A micro versus Retin-A cream but both are tretinoin and equally effective for skin rejuvenation.

Retin A Micro is the gold standard

Retin A Micro is tretinoin delivered via a patented microsponge delivery technology and is one of the most tried and true products for photoaging.

Retin A micro

Retin A micro is as effective than other retin A products. This is because the active ingredient, tretinoin, concentration for concentration,  is the same in all the products. The vehicle and delivery is the difference.

Retin-a micro for wrinkles

In brief, yes.  Tretinoin is the active ingredient in retin-a micro and other retin-a products.  Because the retin-a in the micro product is stabilized and potentially less drying because of the moisturizing base, it may even be more effective than other retin-a products.
