Iso Retinoid  (Gel) 

Composition:
Each 100g Gel contains 50mg Isotretinoin.

Indications:
Isotretinoin is structurally and pharmacologically related to Vitamin A Acid which regulates epithelial cell growth and differentiation.
Iso Retinoid is indicated for the topical treatment of mild to moderate inflammatory and non inflammatory acne vulgaris.
Iso Retinoid stimulates the epidermis and reduces intercellular cohesion in the stratum corneum; it contests the hyperkeratosis characteristic of acne vulgaris and aids desquamation, preventing the formation of lesions. Iso Retinoid also mediates an increased production of less cohesive epidermal sebaceous cells, this appears to promote the initial expulsion and subsequent prevention of comedones.

Usage:
Apply Iso Retinoid sparingly over the whole affected area once or twice daily.
Patients should be advised that 6 – 8 weeks of treatment may be required before a therapeutic effect is observed.
