Finacea and Tretinoin help..retinoids
Posted 29 September 2009 - 06:26 PM
I'm new to this board. I'm a 23 y/o female. Had my first dermatologist's visit today. The derm just took one look at my face and prescribed Finacea and Tretinoin without talking to me about the products and how to use them. I'm supposed to use Tretinoin at night and Finacea twice a day. Has anyone used this combination before? At night, how do I layer the two, what do I apply first? Should I wait between the two?
I have moderate acne and my skin is sensitive to hyperpigmentation. I have tried relatively few products so far compared to some other posts - Clindamycin (worked for a year then stopped working), bp, salicylic acid wash, sulfur based mask. Would really appreciate any help! Thanks!

If you are using both at once, I would apply the the Retin-A first, wait 15-20 min, and then apply the Finacea.

They can only get it up now and then.
