Hey guys,

I've been using Stieva A .025% for like maybe 2 months. I have had no peeling except for where a blemish has healed. I also use Olay Sensitive Foaming Wash, Lustra Ultra, and Eucerin Spf 30.

Has anyone else had this experience and the retin a still worked for them? I wonder if I should up the percentage? I remember peeling like crazy in the past with Tazorac and Retin A. Any help is very appreciated!

Hey I have been using retin-a .01% for over a month and haven't peeled at all. It could be because of my low dosage though.

When I used Retin A liquid (I don't remember the percentage), I didn't peel but my skin definitely improved.

Just a thought, even if your skin isn't peeling, as long as you are getting the desired results then everything is fine.

Of course if you arent getting the results you want then you might need to change something...

I have been using a tretinoin gel Atralin and I haven't peeled either and I been on it for a month and a half. Just like you it only peels where a pimple healed. I heard you have to wait 3 months to see results... I'm on minocycline too. I def. notice improvement though... I would love for it to hurry up and heal faster though!

All you guys are lucky, I peeled in three days and am barely using any of it, some people just react differently
