Can I Get LED Treatments While Using Retin-A?
Doctor Answers (1)
LED is a very low level light therapy to gradually stimulate collagen growth. Since there is no ablation of the skin, Retin A is safe. The "photo sensitivity" described with Retin A is only seen initially when the skin turnover is being adjusted and there may be a short term thinning of the startum corneum. Over time, Retin A actually thickens the skin.
