Thank you for your question. I would not recommend having a Venus Viva treatment while using Retin-A. In my experience, stopping Retin-A gel or cream 3-5 days prior to Venus Viva treatment is appropriate in minimizing risks and complications of hyperpigmentation or irritation with treatment. I highly recommend you consult with a certified technician for Venus Viva treatments regarding your questions and concerns. Take care and good luck.
