Dermarolling with Retin-A : Is it safe?

I am going to run out of Bio Oil next month and was considering trying Retin A cream next time I roll: 4/5 days after, not right away.

I have heard great things about Retin A used without rolling, has anyone here tried it with rolling?

It seems to be the one cream that has been proven to help skin cell renewal so it sounded like a good topical to go with rolling. Next roll will be my 5th roll.

Retin A is great and all, but there's a breakout period that lasts from 2 weeks to 3 months. i had my worst breakout when I was on Retin A, but it passed. If you want to use Retin A, you have to take a break from rolling until the acne flares stop (usually when your skins adjusts to it).

I don't suffer from acne any more, should I still expect the breakout period? Maybe I should go with a mild version of the topical to try to avoid this, not keen on the idea of going back to acne after all these years!

Thanks for your help
