Skin Care Review: Retin-A

by Mel, CA 94591


Improvement in skin texture.

Skin irritation, and increased sensitivity prior to improvement.

I went in to my dermatologist for my acne, and he prescribed me this. This treatment is very harsh to the skin, and should be taken as directed, or your skin will not get the best results. I was irresponsible the first time I was on this, and I kept stopping or skipping putting on the cream. This is a big NO, NO! This meant that I had to start the whole process again. After starting over again, and faithfully applying it to my skin, my skin went through rough times. After a few weeks, I saw a big improvement. It's definitely worth it as long as you have the patience.

Very hard treatment to follow, but it works.
