Tretinoin is a generic for Retin-A, and it should be only used at night because it breaks down during the day. Retin-A started out being used as an acne med, but it was also discovered that it helps smooth out wrinkles.  It will dry out your face and you need to be careful when out in the sun because you will burn.  Be sure to wear a good sun screen on your face.  I use the same product.  When I put it on at night, I wait an hour for it to soak in, then I apply moisturizer. I also use sunscreen and a moisturizer during the day. Good luck! Carole VonAllten
