Finacea w/ Retin-A regimen?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had success using Finacea along with Retin-A? Is this safe? Here's my story: I used Retin-A for some time and it helped my acne, but left behind redness/irritation. I talked to my derm and switched to Finacea to help with the redness. I've been on Finacea for about 6 weeks now. Finacea helped with the redness, but is pretty ineffective against the remaining acne on a stubborn cheek area.

I was wondering if I can safely apply Retin-A to that cheek area while on Finacea. Retin-A seems to remove the acne, despite the irritation. Any advice?

No you must use it on your entire face. It is a drug that slowly changes the structure and growth cycles of your skin, it needs to be applied consistently and with much patience (3-6 months).

In the topical retinoid forum I have read that some people are using Finacea + RetinA (AM and PM, respectively).
