Retin A Micro And Birth Control Pill....

22 April 2012 - 05:31 PM

I've been on Retin a micro for 3 months and I've have seen pretty good results. I went on it for mainly red marks from previous acne. I've been on birth control (safyral) for 6 months now and I want to get off it, but I fear the breakout that comes with going off. Will the retin a micro keep my skin clear or will my skin still breakout from going off birth control. I really don't want to f up my skin again now that it's finally getting back to normal. I just can't afford birth control anymore.

Finacea Or A Special Serum..?

21 January 2012 - 12:54 PM

I've been on retin a micro for 3 months for red marks and it's helped a bit, but still needs some work so my derm gave me some finacea. My mom also got me some special serum from Switzerland  called Volmont DNA repair serum. I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions on which one would be better for red marks? Thanks

Does Birth Control Prolong Red Marks?

I used to never get red marks but I've noticed since I've been on birth control every pimple leaves a mark and takes forever to go away. IS this just a coincidence or is it a fact?

Moving To Stronger Strength On Retin A Micro?

19 December 2011 - 07:15 PM

I've been using retin a micro 0.4% for two months and today my derm has decided to move me up to 1% Should I expect anything bad to happen? I didn't get any peeling from the 0.4% just got more oily.  I didn't get that bad of a breakout from the 0.4% because I'm on birth control so I hope I don't break out bad from the 1%.. Any words of wisdom?  I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
