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.

I can get .025 - is that what should be used in the eye area? Or should I use .05/.10 but just use it less frequently?

Thx in advance...

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 dermatologist.

He had no desire to talk about Retin-A whatsoever from what I could tell...

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?

Currently, I'm not using Retin-A. Any tips for an early senior guy, though, as I could be talked into resuming pretty easily.

I quit because skin tone is pretty good and wrinkles pretty minimal with just dietary changes. Botox keeps my crows feet from getting out of hand.

But I have no doubt that Retin-A would make some improvement.
