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 ›

I hav been using retin-a 0,025 daily for around 30 days now. I tried it over my neck too but the skin was way too itchy. Anyway, today I have decided to use it every other day since my skin has become hyper sensitive. I don;t use powder but blush brush strokes feel gravely, which I believe says... READ MORE

Well, I feel compelled to write a review because I referenced these reviews prior to starting my treatment and even in the middle of my treatment (especially during the initial purge). I'm a 25yo male living in Minnesota for frame of reference. I never really had acne as a high school student... READ MORE

Hey everyone, I started dealing with adult acne about 1.5 years ago. My face pretty much out of nowhere just started getting heavy breakouts mostly on my cheek area . However, sometimes my forehead would get them as well. In those 1.5 years I literally tried EVERYTHING under the sun to battle... READ MORE

Let me begin by saying that I have seen a few aestheticians prior to seeing Cindy. The majority of them either didn't want to spend time to listen to my concerns or just tried to push the products that were sold at the practice. I came to see Cindy for a skin care consultation. I am 30 years... READ MORE

Great skin texture/ very soft (although I have quite a lot of acne scars), less spots. If I get a spot it dissapears in 24-48 hr and heals quickly. Using Retin A as a night time cream for nearly 2 years now, I can see I have reduced sebum production and therefore less acne (the odd spot when... READ MORE

I have been going to and trusting the opinion of Dr O since the early 80's. From my children to me, he has been spot on on every diagnosis and has seen us through all the years and different situations from acne to aging (that I now must sadly admit). Lol, His honesty is second to none.... READ MORE

Hi there, so it's only been a couple weeks, but I am seeing a difference in my skin. My skin is extremely oily, sensitive, acne-prone, etc. I originally saw a dermatologist about Accutane, but she quickly made a case talking me out of that. Instead she said to give topicals a fighting chance... READ MORE
