is .01% strong enough for tretinoin

I have been using a .01% tretinoin gel for about 2 and a half months and am seeing pretty good results, but I figured it would clear all my acne since I have a pretty moderate case. Is .01% a strong enough gel? I am worried that this is as good as it gets.

Since it's been working well for you, then it must be strong enough? I assume.

Talk with your derm about upping your percentage if you like. See what they say.

she wanted to bump me up to .1% tazorac. I am not using it because it made no since to me to go from the lowest strength of a weaker cream to the highest strength of a harsher cream. I am willing to move to like .025 or or .05, but I am afraid of having another IB, something that my derm doesn't believe is real.
