Why has the price of Renova and the generic tretinoins gone up so much recently??
You’re welcome! We’ve been puzzling over this as well and there doesn’t seem to be a credible answer yet. I’ll try to keep all of you posted.
In the meantime, here’s something less expensive to try:
- use nonprescription retinol – here’s a good one at .6% by Neocutis
- you can also try using a fairly aggressive glycolic cream like the Neostata 15% (good price point also!) and alternate nights with them. The glycolic will give you better penetration of the retinol. Don’t put a moisturizer over or under the glycolic.
Given the difference in price points, in my opinion, it’s worth seeing if it works for you. Give it at least 4-6 weeks. Obviously, stop any product if you have a reaction to it!
Hope this helps, Dr. I
