I don't know what I would do without it. I'm on Retin A Micro, I use both .1% and .04 % strengths. Be prepared for it to get worse before it gets better. I experienced redness, flaking, peeling and even soreness. I contemplated quitting but now I am glad I hung in there. My skin looks clearer, brighter, and I actually look decent without makeup. Only thing is your skin is ultra sensitive while on this medication, so treat your skin with the utmost care.
I did not have a good reaction to this medication. I have very sensitive skin and this made it itch and peel like crazy. I could not wait to get it off my face. My dermatologist switched me to Differin, but the reaction was the same.
this product changed my life.After suffering from acne well after my teenage years I went to the doctor and got a prescription for retin a.
I think I have sensitive skin benzoil peroxide makes me look like someone poured acid on my face,But the retin a didn't bother me at all except for occasional dryness.If you pat some creme de lamer on your face after you apply
your retin a I swear you will look like you had a face lift after a few weeks.All the tiny lines,large pores,acne,and discoloration will begin to vanish.So instead of investing all your money in over the counter remedies, visit your local dermatologist. It's well worth it.
I had chin breakouts for quite some time before giving Retin A a try.
Retin A has kept my chin breakouts under control beatifully; people think I have flawless skin. Keep in mind that you do need to get it from your dermatologist and you need her to supervise your use for the first while.
You will definitely have to modify all aspects of your skincare program (no hot water, harsh scrubs, hot water, face cloths or bar soap or astringent. Wash your face with Cetaphil and always wear an SPF 15 sunscreen when you go outside. Keep a fragrance-free moisturizer handy to deal with that 'cracked' feeling.) because your skin will be very sensitive the first several months.
It wont 'cure' your acne but it will help control your breakouts. That is the idea: stopping breakouts before they start.
I have used Retin A for several years now and will never stop for the beautiful skin it gives me.
Hint: Avoid the gel formulation if you have sensitive skin. Gel will burn. Go for the cream formulation instead. continued >>
