Important Safety Information for Renova

RENOVA®(tretinoin cream) 0.02% is a serious medication that may help treat but will not ”cure“ fine wrinkles, spotty skin discoloration, and rough feeling skin. RENOVA 0.02% WILL NOT REPAIR SKIN, ELIMINATE WRINKLES, OR REVERSE AGING.

RENOVA should be used as part of a broad skin care program that includes avoiding direct sunlight (by using protective clothing and sunscreens with a minimum SPF of 15) and using other moisturizing facial creams without RENOVA.

Do not use RENOVA if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant.

Tell your doctor about any other medications or skin creams you are using. RENOVA increases your sensitivity to sunlight and should not be used with other medications or skin care products that increase sensitivity to sunlight.

You should not use RENOVA if you are sunburned or highly sensitive to the sun, if you have eczema, or if your skin is irritated. Remember to limit your time in the sun, and always wear a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.

RENOVA has not been studied for daily use beyond 12 months.

RENOVA 0.02% is a skin irritant. Almost all patients experience one or more local skin reactions, including dryness, peeling, burning/stinging, redness and itching. In some patients, these may be severe, especially if used near the eyes, ears, nose or mouth.
