I use .1% a much higher concentration.I use micro though not the regular retin a.I used regular retin a for 6 yrs and although it helped alot.With time my skin became immuned and started breaking out again.I now switched to the retin a Micro and it seems to help a bit better.Although during my retin a treatment 6+ yrs.I still did get breakouts.Just not as severely.

My acne was not that bad.Maybe 5-10 pimples probably less.But when i started retin a my face blew up in cysts.And would not stop.as a result i had to go on accutane shortly after.After my accutane treatment i went on it again(retin a) when my pores were clear and free of plugs and oil.That time i did not have a intial breakout from it.And since then i have been using it ever since.So thats my story in a nutshell:)
