Atralin Gel is similar to retin A.
Retin A is a good product provided your don't over do it. This also applies to Atralin which is a more cosmetic product formulated with a moisturizer. However, using Atralin too much will irritate the skin and prove to be counter productive. You may not like the way your skin looks but do not use this as a reason to abuse or punish your skin. This is a product that you probably be using no more than every 5th night to start. The frequency can be increased if you are not experiencing irritation.
Regarding you next move. I would encourage you to let your facial skin rest for the next 6 to 12 months.
