Abstract

Topical tazarotene is effective and well tolerated in the treatment of acne vulgaris and has been used successfully in diverse patient populations. However, because factors such as patient skin type and climate may influence its optimal use and frequency of application, treatment approaches often differ according to the populations in which tazarotene is used. The authors review their prescribing practices and special considerations for women, African Americans, patients living in dry climates, adolescents, and Asian Americans.
