Will there be any advserse effect on my baby if I used retin a 0.5mg for about the first 6 weeks of pregnancy on my face alone?
YES!: In the beginning the embryo consists of just one cell which divides into two cells, they into 4, then 8 etc. Early on any damage to a cell will have catastrophic results because if is one of the first 4 cells then 1/4 of the whole body would not develop. Damage done this early brings about a miscarriage. Later on when the baby has all its parts then damage to a cell leads to defects in that part. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have melasma spots all over my face from past pregnancy and bcp/hormones. Don't want retin-a or hydroquinone 2nd to chemicals. Any effective lasertx?
Various treatments: Melasma can be frustrating to have and a challenge to treat. Daily sun protection is important. Often the best results may occur by using a combination of treatments. These include topical treatments, peels and sometimes laser. Lasers can be helpful, but i recommend treatment with low energies, as higher energies can sometimes stimulate pigment worsening.

So start every other day woke it up to daily ...Read more
I'm using alpha-h skin care. Contains aha and glycolic acid. If I start retin-a do I discontinue aha/glycolics? Can I use retin a .5% once every week?
Not both together: I recommend using one or the other and not both together, as both medications have a slight exfoliating action and are likely to cause more side effects if used together. To my knowlege, Retin A comes as 0.05% and that is the stronger formulation. I suggest starting with 0.0125% or 0.025% first to see how your skin responds. ...Read more
