i'm starting my 2nd week on .025% tretinoin, & like you, haven't been getting any reactions at all (i use it every night). well, i have noticed that around pimples that i picked at, the skin peels a little. other than that, nothing.

do you have only mild acne? i have really mild acne (i wanted retin-a mainly for smoothing out my skin & shrinking pores). maybe there hasn't been a breakout because retin-a can't really purge your skin much.

Although I agree everyone is different I feel 4 weeks is way to short to see results.

I took isotretinoin and like other retinoids it took me untill the end of the 3rd month to get clear. You need to give any medication [except of Tane] 3 months before you should come off unless the side affects are to bad to handle.

Ya actually my friend took Tretinoin 0.01% for 4 months or something and had no irritation the hole time it was a miracle for him it cleared him up completely and he had acne sorda bad too. It works different for everybody.

My skin peels when I use Retin-A Micro 0.01%, and my blackheads seem to becoming to the surface but staying just below it enough to evade my removal tactics :-P Also, it's not really working too great right now. My dermatologist is anxious to slap a prescription of Accutane on me but my mom doesn't want him to, so I'm just using what he gives me.
