Stieva-A general information

What is Stieva-A used for?

Stieva-A cream 0.05% is a topical medication used to treat acne vulgaris, a common skin condition associated with puberty and characterised by pimples (papules), spots or whiteheads (pustules) and blackheads (comedones).  Stieva-A cream 0.05% helps prevent the formation and spread of pimples, whiteheads and blackheads.  Stieva-A cream 0.05% is also used to treat dry skin due to chronic exposure to sunlight and related conditions, such as premature aging, and helps reduce visible signs of ageing on the face by fading age spots and reducing fine wrinkles. 

How does Stieva-A work?

Stieva-A cream 0.05% contains tretinoin which is an active metabolite of Vitamin A and is a keratolytic medication that affects the way skin cells behave by regulating cell growth and differentiation.  It is thought to act by enhancing skin epithelial cell proliferation and accelerating epithelial differentiation.  Stieva-A cream 0.05% prevents formation of new pimples and blackheads (comedones) by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increasing the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells.  The combined effect of these actions is to speed up skin cell turnover, clear up pimples and blackheads and reduce the spread of acne.  This also works for aging or damaged skin by promoting skin turnover, where damaged skin is replaced by new skin cells giving the effect of lightening and smoothing the skin.  Stieva-A cream 0.05% reduces symptoms of acne as well as reducing the appearance of age spots and fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging.

What does Stieva-A contain?

Stieva-A cream 0.05% contains the active ingredient tretinoin (0.05mg/gm), a keratolytic medication used to treat the symptoms of acne as well as reduce the appearance age spots and fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging.

Treating acne with Stieva-A

Stieva-A cream 0.05% contains tretinoin which is an active metabolite of Vitamin A and a keratolytic medication that changes the way skin cells grow and behave.  Acne forms when over stimulation of the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands in hair follicles), which often happens in response to a surge of androgen hormones at puberty, causes pores to become clogged with dead skin.  This leads to the formation of new pimples, whitehead and blackheads (comedones), which can become infected and inflamed.  Tretinoin in Stieva-A cream 0.05% prevents formation of new pimples and blackheads by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increasing the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells.  The combined effect of these actions is to unblock pores and prevent them becoming clogged and inflamed, which reduces the outbreak of new pimples as well as clearing up existing blemishes; also to speed up skin cell turnover and help the natural exfoliation process of the outer skin layer, which helps clear up pimples and blackheads and reduces the spread of acne. 

Stieva-A for age spots

Stieva-A cream 0.05% contains tretinoin, a topical treatment that can help reduce visible signs of ageing on the face by lightening age spots, which are pigmented patches of skin caused by sun damage and general aging, common in people over 55 years.  Stieva-A cream 0.05% can help speeds up skin turnover by promoting the shedding of old damaged skin and growth of new skin cells giving the effect of lightening the skin. 

Stieva-A cream for wrinkles

Stieva-A cream 0.05% contains tretinoin, a topical treatment that can help reduce visible signs of ageing on the face by reducing fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and general aging of the skin.  Stieva-A cream 0.05% speeds up skin turnover by promoting the shedding of old damaged skin and growth of new skin cells giving the effect of smoothing the skin.  It also promotes skin cells to produce collagen, which keeps skin flexible.
