More than two decades ago, retinoids have been extensively used for the treatment of acne, skin aging, psoriasis, and certain types of cancer.

Today a variety of retinoids are available in the market: retinol, adapalene, tretinoin, tazarotene, bexarotene, and alitretinoin. The retinoids come in gel, cream, and liquid forms. Tretinoin is considered the most effective and certainly the most widely investigated retinoid for photo aging therapy. Tretinoin was the first retinoid approved by the FDA to treat wrinkles. Retinoids slower the growth of skin cells in patients suffering from psoriasis. Retinoids reduce the inflammation and restore the normal epidermal differentiation that is absent in psoriatic lesions. Retinoids are very helpful for many common skin problems but are not without risks like dryness and irritation, changes in skin color, redness, blistering, swelling, and others. Furthermore, retinoids are also used for the treatment of pigmentary disorders like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, actinic lentiginous, and melasma.
