Apply gel retin a (tretinoin). At pimple forehead Now my skin like rednees. So???

Right. You can get the cream and not the gel and get the lowest percentage and apply it only once every 2 or 3 days. You can also alternate with benzoyl peroxide 5%. After 6 weeks 80% report good signs of improvement in their acne.

Normal Issue. The formation of a pimple or milia is commonly seen after treatment with laser, especially the CO2 laser. It happens as part the normal wound healing process after an aggressive laser treatment like C)2. I would check with your doctor, but it should be fine. Read more...

Skin lesion. Leave your skin alone. It will repair itself. If there was no infection and the whitehead was the only thing that came out of it, it will most likely leave no scars, but let it heal itself and keep your hands off your face. Read more...

Apply gel Retin-a to acne. Cause dry skin. Can I do laser co2?

Accutane= dry skin. Accutane is the oral form of Retin A (tretinoin). Generally we do not use both. You will have dry skin, especially lips, until you finish accutane. Why would you want to do laser? See how you look after 20 weeks of accutane. Read more...

I finally got my adult acne under control using epiduo gel but now I have dark spots on my face from breaking out before. Will the retin A (tretinoin) help?

Probably not. Retin A (tretinoin) is helpful for the acne, but can actually contribute to "post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation" ( dark spots following acne) to some degree. You can add in topical 4% hydroquinone cream as a mild bleaching agent to be used nightly on the hyper-pigmented areas to gradually lighten them up. Read more...
