Re: Retin-a micro
May 30, 2001
Retin-A micro has been a miracle for me! Like you, I used to get really painful cysts on my face that took forever to go away. At first, my face was really red and peeling like crazy, but after three weeks my skin was starting to look great. The initial "breakout" wasn't that bad - at least no worse than when I broke out normally. I also noticed that the zits healed much more quickly. This may be from the Retin A, but also my derm gave me some antibiotic lotion to put on my face in the morning to aid in the healing.

After seven weeks, my skin is smooth and my red marks are fading. This really has been the only thing to work for me. You just have to stick with it. Also, use a gentle cleanser and a gentle moisturizer. I like Cetaphil. I use the moisturizer with SPF 15. Also, every week I use Origins "Never a dull moment" in the shower to get rid of the peeling skin. It is THE BEST scrub on the market.

Good luck, and I hope it works as well for you as it has for me. I can actually face the world now!
