My Ziana Journey!



Trying to see improvement with using ziana, prescribed by my determalogist.

Been on it for a few weeks now, not exactly sure how many because I haven't been using it every night like I was supposed to,

But I can say my acne has got a lot worse than it was before I started using it!!!

It is definitely normal to purge at the beginning of retinoid use. It's not unusual to continue to break out up to 3 months or even beyond. My timeline is that if you do not see consistent improvement at month 3-4 of consistent use, it may be time to reevaluate things. Are you using an anti microbial such as BP or topical antibiotic? It may help keep things from getting too crazy

Thank you so much for your comment!! Ugh I'm really hoping this gets better soon, I almost want to stop using it. But I hear it works wonders once you wait it out, and actually I saw some improvement in my skin and was gonna post a picture just don't know if it's just me getting over a bad break out or if the purge stage is ending, I hope it's ending. But I actually stopped using any other things except cetiphil wash (I think that's how you spell it) I want to use other stuff but I don't not how to put it in with my routine since I use ziana at night and then in the morning wash my face, use lotion then put makeup on. If you have any advice that would be awesome! Should post a picture soon! Thanks again!
