Let us cut the crap and get to the chase.
20 years old male, with persistent acne since 15ish
Accutane 3 times, acne came back each time (less severe each time, but STILL!!)
Main problem areas are my cheeks... Seriously, other places are pretty much clear!!
now, trying something else... HOPEFULLY THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!!
I was actually on Retin-A Cream .025% before switching over to Micro .04% because even though it was only a month, I could tell it was not strong enough... also I heard bad things about the cream so...
*EDIT: I finally accepted the reality that only the times when I started retin-a micro counts (1.5 month as of 11/11/12). Guess I wanted to count the month that I spent with the cream as an endpoint for me to give up (but in reality I still have few more weeks left before I can surely kick .04% off the curb and try something else)
Week 1 (edited after accepting reality)
switched over to Retin-A Micro and so far I have not seen any major changes. My cheeks have been breaking out consistently since Week 2 of the regimen. Hopefully its just too early to tell...
