Retin-a Micro--a Must Have! - Athens, GA

After getting the implanon, my skin was at its worst. My doctor failed to mention to me that it was pure estrogen, but my skin did not. I wanted my flawless skin back. First I saw a new doctor and got my implanon removed. Then I saw a dermatologist for the first time ever, and she prescribed me retina micro .1%. AMAZING results, but the product needs time. At first, your skin gets very dry, flakey, and red. but you have to get over that stage to get the results you want. After all, your skin gets worse before it gets better because you are surfacing all of the bacteria. Anyone who dogs on retina micro never gave it a full chance! I promise that you will not be dissatisfied by the results, and pictures do not lie! See for yourself! I recommend this product to anyone! I am still using it today, and I will for the rest of my life! Not only does it get rid of acne and hyperpigmentation, it also produces collagen which decreases fine lines and wrinkles as well as pock-marks, and works as an anti-aging product. It even gets rid of dark circles! Yes, it is a little pricey (depending on your insurance) but it's worth saving the money. I feel so much better about myself and I love the fact that I don't have to wear makeup if I don't want to! And that, is what I missed most when I was battling my acne. Give it a shot! If you have any other further questions about the product, feel free to leave a comment. I know what it's like to be in a slump from bad skin, and nobody should ever have to feel the way I did. I'm here to help! Don't waste a bunch of time reading on reviews for months, this product works, and in as little as a few months you can turn your skin completely around.

Still using retina-micro today!

I haven't updated my post in quite some time, but for anyone wondering where I am with my skin and skin-care routine, I am in fact still using the retin-a micro. I've taken breaks from the product here and there, but no longer than for a couple of weeks. It is still working wonders on my skin. Since I've had pretty clear skin since my initial trial, some times i do not use the product ever day. Instead I will use it ever other day or so. It keeps my skin glowing, but cuts back on the dry skin. In the morning, I use a dove beauty bar to wash my face, rub it down with a little coconut oil, and pat dry. I've recently been using a Japanese skin cream called "Yu-Be," and I apply a small amount to any troubling dry spots I may have. It keeps my skin hydrated all day, and I have been very pleased with that product as well. I then apply an eye cream. Finally I apply Neutrogena Healthy Defense 50 spf face moisturizer. EVERY MORNING! It's important to use spf every day. This will protect your skin from aging (sun spots, wrinkles, crows feet, etc). At night I use the same dove beauty bar, pat my face dry, and allow to dry completely for 10-20 min. Then, I will apply the retina-micro. If my face is feeling extra dry, I will either skip a day and do my normal morning routine minus the spf, or only apply the retina to any trouble spots I may have. Will post picture of my skin later!
