Topical retinoids for treating acne

The first line of therapy for acne lesions is topical therapy, which often includes a topical retinoid. Retinoids are chemically related to Vitamin A and have multiple effects on the skin, including normalizing sebaceous gland function and helping to resolve comedones. The most commonly used retinoid is tretinoin, often referred to as Retin A. Other retinoids include adapalaene (e.g. Differin) and tazarotene (e.g. Tazorac). Combination products containing a retinoid and a topical antibiotic or benzoyl peroxide are commonly used, such as EpiDuo, Ziana, and Veltin. A regimen of a topical retinoid or retinoid combination product at bedtime and benzoyl peroxide in the morning is prescribed by many dermatologists.
