5 weeks of tretenoin

Recommended Posts

I have just started my fifth week of using tretenoin cream and just wondering if my results are normal as of late:

1-2 weeks of use- Excessive drying of skin

3rd week- Drying has stopped but improvement not visible yet

4rth week- More pimples starting to appear

I'm starting to wonder if more pimples appearing at the 4rth week is a good or bad sign

Any help will be appreciated

that is normal dude. If you want to see good improvement, you gotta stick with the retin-a and use it for atleast 3 months to see good improvement. Retin-a tends to make you look more red/dry so I recommend using a good moisturizer and please remember to wear sunscreen.
