What’s the “A” in Retin-A stand for? That'd be vitamin A. Retin-A is one of many topical prescription medications that uses tretinoin, an FDA-approved drug derived from vitamin A which stimulates skin cell turnover. Retin-A is often used to combat acne. Prepare to use sunscreen, though. Tretinoin-based drugs can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. LEARN MORE ›

Some background: I have had problems with acne since highschool and was first prescribed an array of antibiotics (tetracycline, minocycline etc) that yielded no results. I was then put on Diane 35 and switched to Yasmin when that didn't work. Since I was 14 I've been on Yasmin and it was great... READ MORE

I got a breast augmentation to correct breast asymmetry. I ended up with severe stretch marks all over my breasts. I did some research and discovered that my fav creme, Retin-A, which I already use on my face, works to improve the appearance of these nasty creatures. I couldn't find many reviews... READ MORE

So today is day 3 in my retin A regiment. I had never done it before. I use Retin A 0.1% and I use it all over my face. First day I put two drops all over my face, didnt look like much, so I added some more. It took several ( like three-four) hours for it to dry. Now I know I applied too much.... READ MORE

I've had moderate acne since I hit puberty and parts of my face are very red due to picking and some light scarring. The only thing I've ever done routinely is wash my face, usually once daily with Neutrogena deep cleanse. I went to the dermatologist on March 20th and was placed on this... READ MORE

I have been using Differin 0.3% for several years, all through high school and first year of university. It didn't completely eliminate my previously moderate acne, but it kept it at bay and my skin was generally pretty clear with normal, mild breakouts when I was stressed or didn't wash my...

Suddenly starting from the June-12 i am getting lot of acne, it might be due to stress or lot of chocloates or hormonal change but i am not sure. However it is universal truth that it leads to depression. I started with some home remedies but it made my acne more worst. I was frustrated and went... READ MORE

At 64 my hands were looking 74+ with thin, wrinkled, old looking hands. The skin would break easy, with a small nick causing bleeding. I used Retinin A cream every night, a small amount. In 4 months my hands definitly looked better, skin thicker, less small wrinkles and less lose skin. If you... READ MORE

I am a 20-year-old, female and I have tried about everything in the book to treat my skin for acne and acne scars. I came across Retin A 0.05% when my boyfriends mom told me about this product and I have started using it about two weeks ago. I have read a lot of reviews about this product... READ MORE

I use retin-a .05% and will say its the best thing in my regime and I will never go without. You will experience peeling and redness for several weeks while your skin adjusts to using it, but believe me it is well worth it. I've been using it for almost 4 months and my skin is already... READ MORE

Hi, I began using Retin 0.1% and Hydriquonine 6% on Sep of this year I used it for about 3 weeks only at night (every other night I might add). I did go out in the sun a few times and I don't know if perhaps I was not well protected with sunscreen. I noticed that I had developed new... READ MORE

I asked my Plastic Surgeon what is the best thing I can do to maintain the results and he said use Retin A/Tretinoin. I have some skin... READ MORE

Pros- My face IMMEDIATLY tightened and I could feel the product working. Worked extremely well with mildly severe acne. (combination skin) After a month of use, my skin has NEVER looked better. (used Retin-A at night and a 5% Benzoyl Peroxide in the morning.) Cons- Dryness did occur...used... READ MORE

I once started retin-a last year because of a few dermatologists saying I had clogged pores. I stopped within a month because my skin was so red, itchy, uncomfortable and I had broken out like crazy. My skin went back to normal but I still had hundreds of clogged pores. Months later I was tired... READ MORE

Okay, first of all, it was so worth it. If you don't have patience then retin a (tretinoin) is not for you. Another thing, im sorry but I don't think retin a is for people with severe acne, it's more for moderate. I started off with the 0.1% strength. The initial breakout happened for about two...

I developed light adult acne on my cheeks that looked sorta like a rash that got worse when I wore foundation. I started my treatment with an oral antibiotic along with .025 strength Retin A. I used it every day. After the first six weeks, I was able to stop taking the oral antibiotic. I use... READ MORE
