Does It Make Sense To Use Retin-A Micro Gel Every Day?

10 posts in this topic

Hello,

I was just wondering if it does any good to use Retin-A micro gel (0.01%) every day?

I read that it is a time released substance and therefore it takes a while for it to enter into the skin and do it's job. Since it takes time to enter the skin does it do any good to apply it every night? Or is it better every other day or something like that?

Thanks.

Yes you should apply it every night, but if you start to notice a lot of irritation you can do it every other night and then build a better tolerance to it. I'm not sure how long you've been using it though.

Okay. So every night even with micro.

Are you just starting using retin a micro?

No, I have been at it for about two and a half months if I remember correctly.

When you first started it did it make you really red? See, I just got bumped up to 0.1% and I used it for the first time last night and when I woke up this morning all my red marks were really red. Is that supposed to happen? Because usually when I wake up ( when I was using the 0.4%) my red marks were really light.

You'll see the most effects every night at a 0.1%. 0.4% works great for those with sensitive skin (especially in a cream formulation), and is still able to bring about incredible improvements. That said, it's possible (if necessary) to use tretinoin (Retin-A Micro) once every other night, or even just a few times a week; its effects will still be present, albeit with significantly less irritation (though tolerance builds rather quickly to tretinoin's side effects).

With that being said:

If Retin-A micro 0.01% was used every night the results would be better right?

As far as I'm aware, that's correct. Higher concentrations and more regular usage yields more intense side effects and more profound results.
