Possible to Never See Any Benefit from Tretinoin?
I’m a 42 year-old male, started using Retin-A Micro Gel .04% four months ago, to combat fine facial wrinkles. I’m still not seeing any benefit, only side effects: dry, irritated skin and an increase in acne. Initially I applied every other day, but gradually descreased usage to once-a-week to avoid the sun-burn-like irritation. The irritation is better, but still no benefit! I actually look OLDER. I use SPF 40 and a gentle cleanser. Is it possible my skin never adapts to the Tretinoin? Thanks!
