Irritating : The names like Retin A, Retin A Micro, Renova, Refissa, Atralin etc. Are all the same medication in different bases, like a gel, lotion or cream, and strengths.

Acne is improving: Since you are having fewer breakouts, the retin a (tretinoin) micro is working. A newer medication that might work even better is epiduo. Acne is usually a chronic condition and cannot be "cured" overnight. It will take time so be patient. How are you cleansing your face? A gentle cleanser like cetaphil oil control is good, as is a brush like a clarisonic. ...Read more

Can i dilute retin-a micro? I have the pump bottle of .1% but my face peels too much from it. Can i add it to moisturizer?
Not a good idea: The interaction of various mixed materials is unpredictable and may increase you side effects. Try reducing the time duration of your Retin-A application in hours until the problem subsides. The longer it is on , the more likely for some to peal. If 1 hour is not tolerated you may need to drop to a weaker dilution. ...Read more
What is the difference between tretinoin and isotretinoin. Is retin a micro gel similar to isotrex topical gel, are they basically the same product?
Both are Vitamin A's: One is a cream/gel the other one is a pill. Accutane and Retin-A are both forms of vitamin a, just in different forms. Retin-a or tretinoin (generic name) is a cream/gel is applied to the face and it works from the outside in. Accutane (isotretinoin) is a high dose of vitamin a just like Retin-A is, but instead it is in a oral medication that works from the inside out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can I use bio-oil over my retin-a micro at night to help my face further with some scarring and uneven skintone ? Or is a moisturizer better to use ?
Oil and facial skin: I would suggest an oil-free non-comedogenic moisturizer if retin a (tretinoin) is too drying for your skin. Better yet, decrease the concentration and/or frequency of applications of retin a (tretinoin) until your skin gets used to it. Oils applied to the skin will make you more likely to break out which may lead to additional scarring. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
