Retin-A Micro Pump is indicated for the topical treatment of acne vulgaris. It is a prescription medication that contains tretinoin, a retinoid that works by affecting the growth of skin cells. Retin-A Micro Pump helps decrease the number and severity of acne pimples and promotes quick healing of pimples that do develop.


  • Before starting to use Retin-A Micro Pump, read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist.
  • Before applying Retin-A Micro Pump, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to ensure cleanliness.
  • Gently clean the affected skin with a mild or soapless cleanser and pat it dry. Wait for 20 to 30 minutes after cleaning your face before applying the medication.
  • Fully depress the pump twice to dispense the appropriate amount of Retin-A Micro onto a fingertip. The amount of medication needed is usually about the size of a pea.
  • Use your fingertips to apply Retin-A Micro in a thin layer to cover the affected area. Apply it as directed by your healthcare provider, usually once daily at bedtime.
  • Spread Retin-A Micro evenly over the affected area. 
  • After applying Retin-A Micro, wash your hands thoroughly to avoid accidentally getting the medication in your eyes.
  • During the first few weeks of using Retin-A Micro, your acne might appear worse because the medication is working on pimples forming inside the skin. It may take up to 8-12 weeks to notice results from this medication. 
  • To get the most benefit from Retin-A Micro, use it regularly at the same time each day.
  • If you have any questions or your condition worsens, consult your healthcare provider.


  • Avoid applying the medication to the inner lip area, inside the nose/mouth, or on cut, scraped, sunburned, or eczema-affected skin.
  • Do not use a larger amount or use this medication more often than recommended by your healthcare provider, as it will not improve your skin any faster and may increase the risk of developing redness, peeling, and pain.
