1000X magnification of skin
  • Helps to improve skin barrier function and retain moisture1
  • May allow for quicker absorption into the skin1
  • Helps decrease transepidermal water loss1

MICRONIZED TRETINOIN PARTICLES1

  • Regular particles are approximately 200 to 300 microns in size, while skin follicles, on average, are only 11 to 66 microns in diameter
  • The tretinoin used in ALTRENO lotion undergoes a proprietary micronization process, resulting in a reduced particle size
    • 85% of particles are less than 10 microns in size

INDICATION

ALTRENO™ (tretinoin) lotion, 0.05% is indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris in patients 9 years of age and older.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

ALTRENO is for topical use only. Not for ophthalmic, oral, or intravaginal use.

Skin Irritation: Patients using ALTRENO may experience application site dryness, pain, erythema, irritation, and exfoliation. Depending upon the severity of these adverse reactions, instruct patients to use a moisturizer, reduce the frequency of the application of ALTRENO, or discontinue use. Avoid application of ALTRENO to eczematous or sunburned skin.

Ultraviolet Light and Environmental Exposure: Minimize unprotected exposure to ultraviolet light, including sunlight and sunlamps. Warn patients with frequent sun exposure and those with inherent sensitivity to sunlight to exercise caution. Use sunscreen and protective clothing over treated areas when exposure cannot be avoided.

Fish Allergies: ALTRENO contains soluble fish proteins. Use with caution in patients with known sensitivity or allergy to fish. Advise patients to contact their healthcare provider if they develop pruritus or urticaria.

Adverse Reactions: The most common adverse reactions in clinical trials were application site dryness (4%), pain (3%), erythema (2%), irritation (1%) and exfoliation (1%).

Nursing Women: It is not known whether topical administration of tretinoin could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable concentrations in human milk. The developmental health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for ALTRENO and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from ALTRENO.
