How Much Time Does It Take for Retin-A to Be Fully Absorbed?

Retin-A Absorption Timeline

Pretty much right away.  Most people do not notice the effect for about 4-5 days though.  When I am recommending this product, I usually warn the patient that if they have a social event scheduled within the week, they should be aware of this timeline.
