I often combine Retin-A pre-treatment with my chemical peels.  Retin-A primes the skin and helps the effects of the peel.  Of course you should stop Retin-A for at least one week after the peel or until the skin is back to normal.  Please consult an expert for the best cosmetic results.  Best, Dr. Green
