Question What is this stuff?

My dermatologist recent moved away. But before he left, he gave some a topical cream called renova to fade away the spots and scars left by some cystic acne. The stuff work great. It even kill some full grown pimples. I was wonder if anyone knows what this Renova stuff is and if I can get it over the counter at a drug store or anything like it. I just haven't had the time to find a new doctor in my area that fits into my health plan.
The stuff says Renova (tretinoin emollent cream)

Renova is a very strong Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)compound and is available by prescription only. I have used it, and yes, it works GREAT on those pesky 'age spots'.
