What is tretinoin?

Tretinoin is a prescription treatment for different types of acne. Tretinoin comes in a topical gel or cream and is part of a group of medications derived from vitamin A known as retinoids. With consistent use, tretinoin can decrease active breakouts, lessen the severity and duration of breakouts, and prevent future acne from forming.

How does tretinoin work?

Tretinoin encourages exfoliation as well as stimulates the production of both collagen and elastin. Simply put, tretinoin prescriptions encourage skin cell turnover by speeding up the time skin cells take to multiply and die, allowing healthy new cells to replace them. You can get tretinoin online in Canada through an online visit with Felix.

Questions about Tretinoin?

We have answers.

What is tretinoin?

Tretinoin is a retinoid medication derived from Vitamin A that was originally developed to treat acne. It comes in the form of a cream or a gel and ranges from strengths of .01 percent to .1 percent. Tretinoin appears under brand names such as Retin-A.

How to use tretinoin?

Tretinoin often comes in a gel or cream form, meaning you can apply it directly to the affected skin to target acne. Tretinoin should be taken as per your doctor’s recommendation. Do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

How long does tretinoin take to work?

To see effective results, it is recommended that you use this medication for up to 3 months. If you do not see results, a follow-up visit will be required to further address your needs for treating your acne.

What are the side effects of tretinoin?

If skin redness or dryness occurs, you should decrease the application to every other day. 

When using Tretinoin your sensitivity to sunlight can increase. Remember to always wear sunscreen (minimum SPF 15+) while using this medication.

Who should not take tretinoin?

Women who are, or plan to be, pregnant or start breastfeeding should not use this medication.

Is tretinoin available over the counter?

Tretinoin is a prescription-only medication. This means that you will need to speak to a healthcare professional before you are able to buy it from a pharmacy.

How to get tretinoin

You can get tretinoin by speaking to a healthcare practitioner and getting a prescription. If you have a family doctor, they will be able to write you a prescription. If you have a more severe case of acne, you might want to meet with a dermatologist who can assess your specific needs and write you a prescription for tretinoin. They may also have other suggestions for treatments to use in conjunction with tretinoin. With your prescription, you’ll be able to pick up tretinoin at any pharmacy. Finally, one of the easiest ways to get tretinoin is to skip the visit to the doctor's or dermatologist’s office and speak with a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner online using a service like Felix. You can do this if you have severe acne, mild acne, or even if you just want to reliably prevent future acne breakouts. If you already have a prescription, you can also transfer it to Felix for free. You can then purchase tretinoin on Felix’s platform and have it delivered right to your door without ever having to leave the house or wait in a doctor’s office. 

How to get a tretinoin prescription

To get a tretinoin prescription in Canada you have to speak to a healthcare practitioner. Tretinoin, also commonly known by the brand name Retin-A, is a topical medication used for treating acne. It is widely used and has decades of data backing up its claims, but it can also be quite strong and irritating. That’s why it’s required to speak to a healthcare practitioner who can assess your specific skincare concerns, as well as other potential interactions such as other medications you may be taking, to determine if a tretinoin prescription is a good choice for you. While tretinoin is well tolerated by most people, it can have side effects such as redness, tingling, and peeling in the first months of use. When you speak with a healthcare practitioner to get your prescription, they can determine which tretinoin strength will help you address your skin concerns without causing too much redness or discomfort. 

Your family doctor or a doctor at a walk-in clinic will be able to write you a prescription for tretinoin, but there’s an even easier way. With Felix, you can have an online visit with a Canadian healthcare practitioner and get a tretinoin prescription without having to visit a doctor’s office. Plus, you can purchase your medication from Felix and have it delivered right to your door, saving you a trip to the pharmacy. 

Where to buy tretinoin cream

You can buy tretinoin cream from just about any pharmacy or from an online healthcare provider like Felix. To buy tretinoin cream, you’ll first need a prescription. Not all tretinoin creams are identical, and your prescription will be for a specific strength. Different strengths contain the same active ingredient, but lower concentrations can be much milder and reduce the side effects that some people experience when first using tretinoin. When you speak to your healthcare practitioner, you can share the specifics of your situation such as how long you’ve had acne, how severe it is, and whether or not you’re taking any other medications that may further sensitize your skin. With your prescription, you can head to any pharmacy and buy tretinoin in the specified strength. An easier way to buy tretinoin is by using an online healthcare option such as Felix. If you already have a prescription, you can transfer it to Felix for free and order tretinoin right to your door. If you don’t have a prescription yet, Felix can help you there too. Just set up an online visit to chat with one of Felix’s healthcare practitioners and you can get your prescription from the comfort of your own home. 

Where to buy tretinoin cream over the counter

You can’t buy tretinoin cream over the counter in Canada. While tretinoin is very effective, it is also stronger than over-the-counter acne medications. It’s important to use it correctly to avoid or minimize potential side effects. These include tingling, warmth, irritation, and minor skin peeling in the initial period after starting the treatment. Tretinoin is available in different strengths, with higher concentrations providing faster results in most cases but also potentially causing greater irritation. Since there are important factors to take into account before beginning the use of tretinoin, such as how severe your acne is, how sensitive your skin is, and whether or not you’re using any other products or medications that may make your skin more sensitive, a healthcare practitioner must first assess your situation and write you a prescription for the appropriate strength. There are over-the-counter products that contain other related retinoid active ingredients, such as retinol or adapalene, but these are nowhere near as effective as tretinoin despite marketing claims. They are also typically more expensive than the tretinoin that you can get with a prescription. If you’re looking for an effective, high-quality and affordable treatment for your acne, it’s better to skip the over-the-counter products and opt for tretinoin cream from Felix or your local pharmacy.
