Altreno cellular absortion for better comfort and hydration Altreno cellular absortion for better comfort and hydration

Altreno is the first and only tretinoin in a hydrating lotion formula.

Your dermatologist is medically trained to help you get your best skin. However, sometimes only the active ingredient, tretinoin, will get written on the prescription pad. This means the pharmacy will give you a generic product that does not contain the hydrating formula unique to Altreno. Hydrated skin is healthier skin. Keeping your skin as healthy as possible during acne treatment is very important.

Whether online, or in-person, raise your concerns about hydration during your appointment and say why you believe Altreno may be the right option for you.

Don't forget to inform your healthcare provider about any cosmetics and other skincare products you use for your skin.
