So I went to the derm , and he prescribed me Retin A micro. He told me to
use a mild cleanser, such as Cetaphil and a hypoallergenic moisturizer. He
also told me I would likely experience redness, mild tingling, and peeling the
first few weeks – LOVELY! How long did this wonderful side effect last for you?
Okay, so here are my questions, which cleanser and moisturizer worked best
for you, when using Retin A micro? I want to minimize the horrendous side
effects as much as possible. Also, he didn’t tell me when to apply the
moisturizer. I assume it’s after the Retin A? I’m not sure. Also, has anyone
else used an exfoliant with Retin A?
He said to use a pea sized amount, but how on earth do you cover your whole
face with such a small amount?
retina a micro is one the drugs of topical acne retinoid family like as:
retina a and acne free
they are same effect and have some little side effect such as:
-dryness of skin
so to use it should use thin layer of it at night and may be wash after 30
minutes if it is irritating you much
and about moisturizer there are alot like
neutrogina oil free and other
it depend on type of you skin and this can be handle with your dermatolgist
and try to avoid sun exposure as possible as you can
