When I was a teenager I used Accutane. I was not supposed to have acne after that but after 10 years I had and it makes me so sad. I bought this product, but my skin started peeling very bad. I was using only in certain places. I had to stop using it.

I have been using Retin A for about 4 years. There are rules but. I don't like the cream . I am 60 and still have oily skin so I use the gel form. The other thing is you don't have to go big and use the highest strength. I have very fine oily sensitive skin and I use either .25 or .5 in gel form about twice a week and it does the trick. I have great skin. I have to say, I used it in …Read more

I have a different approach to Retin-A use than others, and it works great.

My facial skin is very good for a 61 YO woman, but my decolletage doesn't look great (sun damage). Over the years, I've tried Retin-A a few times, but always quit because of irritation. Late last year, I talked to my dermatologist about this, and he gave me a prescription for .025. (Insurance companies …

I've used Retin-A for four years. I went on two courses of Accutane for severe cystic acne. It came back just as bad after ending the first course. I stretched out the second course for a while and microdosed. I didn't enjoy losing so much hair, so I stopped taking it. My skin's texture began to revert back to what it was before, and my hyperpigmentation was still there. Those were …Read more

I have suffered from acne and cystic acne for 10 years. My insurance doesn't cover Retin-A and it's an outrageous price at the pharmacy. It was my friend, actually, who suggested I try Retin-a. She said just search in Google for the keyword * RET365GET * 👍 to find the reliable source. It's a way cheaper 😀. I have tried almost EVERYTHING from topical to oral treatments. I recently …Read more

I was reluctant to go the Retin A route to be honest. I had used skinceuticals retinol 1 % for over a decade and still often experienced flaking. Wasn’t sure how bad the peeling would be with Retin A and I was worried. However I knew that Retin A could do more for my skin that retinol so I took the plunge.
I used a .05 very very sparingly on only problem spots at first and still experienced …

My name is Tamara, I'm 58 and I can definitely recommend Retin-A tretinoin cream for ageing skin, but first visit your derm better to get recommendation from him/her. Doctor recommended me start from low-tretinoin concentration 0.02% and after go deeper with 0.04%, 0.05% and 0.1% cream/gels if would be necessary/required.
After I started using it for in 2 months my skin became more …

I've asked my doctor to prescribe me Retin-A Tretinoin for anti-aging in September 2017. I live in sunny California and I waited till November when the sun is less harsh to start.
I've been using Tretinoin 0.025% for a bit more than 9 months.
I have sensitive rosacea prone skin and it took me some time to build up my skin tolerance to this cream. I've started by using it …

I feel like Retin-A has played a dirty trick on me. And I'm stuck with it for life.

I was put on it in my late teens for acne. It cleared my skin. My skin looked good. Plump clear always a little red swollen andpeeling for the years I was on it -they say that dissipates but it never really goes away completely. But I was willing to put up with that for clear skin. Then after a few …

After having used Avene Eluage Cream (Retinaldehyde) for 8 years I decided to move on and I asked my GP a prescription for Tretinoin Cream 0.02%. Just for anti-aging. I have dry, sensitive Rosacean skin and I can't tolerate many actives so I knew there was a possibility my skin would not like Retin-A. However, knowing it's the best anti-aging treatment out there, I just wanted to try …Read more
