What is Stieva A Cream used for?

Stieva A Cream, with the generic name Tretinoin, is a topical prescription cream used to treat certain types of acne. It can also help reduce whiteheads, blackheads, and acne lesions. This medication is classified as a retinoid.

You may use this retinoid cream for other skin disorders only if the physician prescribes it. Do not use this topical product without any medical supervision.

The available Stieva A Cream strengths are 0.01%, 0.025%, and 0.05%.

How does Stieva A Cream work?

Tretinoin is a retinoid responsible for cornified cell detachment while enhancing shedding. It improves mitotic activity, which increases loosely-adherent corneocyte turnover. This helps expel the acne’s comedo contents while reducing the micromedo precursor lesion of acne vulgaris.
