When using Tretinoin 0.05% cream to reduce wrinkles, can you use other night creams as well? If so, which do you apply first and how long in between?
Yes: I love tretinoin for skin rejuvenation! I generally recommend that my patients wash their face in the evening, apply a toner and then the tret. I then recommend that you wait 15 minutes before applying other creams on top of the tret. If you get skin irritation from the tret you can "cut" it with a moisturizer. for more on facial rejuvenation see: http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/face/ ...Read more
