Renova is an FDA approved emollient cream form of Retin-A®.  Renova® is particularly effective at treating sun-damaged skin and pigment irregularities when used together with other topical preparations, particularly hydroquinone, kojic acid and other 'bleaching' preparations.  The benefit of combined regimens is not only cosmetic, but medical: fine lines soften as the likelihood of developing future skin cancers decreases.  If necessary, these medications can be prescribed when you meet with Dr. Goldman.
