Thank you for your question! You can still get a facial while using Retin-A Micro, however, since your skin will be a little more sensitive due to using the Retin-A I would recommend that your esthetician use products to calm your skin during the facial. I would also suggest that you make your esthetician aware of what products you are using and only have them do a light exfoliation, if any at all. Hope this helps, good luck!

Facial while using Retin-A Micro
Facial and retin a
Look up Dermapen. So much better than a facial. And you don't have to stop using retinol.
You can get Dermapen (or microneedling) with blood or spun down blood to isoloate the PRP (platelet rich plasma). This boosts the efficacy of microneedling by penetrating your own growth factors deep into your skin, again, causing more collagen production and lon-lasting benefits for your skin. I prefer PRP over blood because we have isolated the growth factor portion of the blood to use in the treatment.
You can expect improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and a long-lasting glow. Personally, I love this treatment and try to get it done every couple of months. You will be addicted too. Promise!

You can have a facial while using Retin-A, but it all depends on what type of facial you are having. Retin-A should loosen up the blackheads and make your pores easier to clean. My patinets benefit from oxygen facials in gently cleaning out and repairing the skin.
