PostForum: Retinoids / Vitamin A   Posted: Mon Jun 05, 2017 4:12 pm   Subject: Re: Strength for Eye Area
Id say at least 8-12 weeks for any strength program to produce viable results, but 16-24 weeks might be better. What program are you doing?

Some people with sensitive skin avoid using tretinoin in eye area altogether.
If you are determined to use it, 0.025% every other day (or even less) may be a better level to start -- check with your ...

Well, I was about to reorder my Retin-A and was going to probably do .10, although I like .05 as well. Anyway, I am wondering what the "best practice" is as far as the eye area.

What do you think of the over the counter LED system(s) that are for wrinkle reduction in the periorbital areas. Do you know if people have good luck with these?

I was surprised to learn these e ...
