What is Tazarotene (Tazorac)?
Tazarotene, marketed under the brand name Tazorac, is a medication classified as a topical retinoid. It is primarily used in dermatology to treat various skin conditions, including acne and psoriasis.
Tazarotene’s mechanism of action involves modulating skin cell turnover and reducing inflammation. It normalizes the growth of skin cells, preventing the formation of acne comedones and promoting the shedding of psoriatic plaques. Tazorac is not available over the counter and requires a prescription due to its potential side effects and the need for precise dosing. It is mainly offered in topical creams, gels, or foams, making it a versatile choice for dermatological conditions, particularly those involving hyperkeratotic skin disorders.
