Product details

Avita is a topical gel medication that is used to treat acne. It works to prevent acne in two ways: first, by healing existing blemishes and, second, by encouraging the development of healthier skin cells. It also encourages faster cell turnover to produce healthier skin. Avita is available in different doses and as a gel, cream, or lotion. It is a Vitamin A-derived medication, also referred to as a Retinoid.

When first using Avita, it may seem like your acne is getting worse. This is normal, as the product works deep in the skin and encourages the development of new skin cells. Eventually, your skin will appear clearer. Avita may also smooth rough patches of skin, making it a good anti-aging treatment

Our team at Nurx cannot prescribe and deliver Avita, but can offer the generic equivalent Tretinoin Cream for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $30 without insurance. To learn more about getting acne treatment from Nurx, click here.
