Hello, 

 

I am wondering what the difference is between Retin A micro and Supatret 0.04 micro-sphere gel. 

 

Are they both the same, and just have a different manufacturer? one generic one genuine 

 

Is there any difference in quality ?  

 

 

How effective is tretinoin for pimples, my acne is very mild although its pesky and annoying, I understand it sheds skin, although how can that benefit pimples and acne? 

 

Does it make you acne free similar to Accutane, in the sense of shrinking oil glands?

i have asked a similar question recently: http://www.acne.org/...inoin-products/

im using the real Retin A product and let me tell you, it is farrrr more drying than the other one. come to think of it, the other product i was using rarely caused me any dryness. I switched to retin A because i was constantly paranoid that the other product wouldnt work as much as retin A. although it cleared my skin, retin A is much faster (due to excessive peeling). 

is the retin A micro and supatret gel in the same percentage? if no, there will be a difference in effective but that's just my opinion (:

best of luckkkk! xD

No brand of Retin A will shrink your oil glands.

 

Only Accutane will do that.
