Hello everyone!

I've been trying to find some before & after pictures of people who have been using Retin-a treatment, but all i keep finding is images for lasers and chemical peels. Does anyone have any good links to before & after pictures?

Many Thanks

I've not seen any photos for a while, but with Retin A you have to realise it works at different paces for different people based on where they are starting out, how long they are using it, what form, what strength etc so even if photos did exist I'm not sure how useful they would be to you or anyone else?

I understand fully. I just thought it would be interesting to see it in action, to give people an idea on what to expect as it all sounds amazing from a written perspective.

Youtube may be a good place to look. Here are some vids I found. The last one seems to show starting slowly is the way to go. (I know nothing about Retin-A; and things that make you worse before it gets better scare me.)

The last vid may be the one you want as it is the one that shows before/after pics and probably the way to avoid the uglies. I thought the others would show before/after pics but they seem to just give "current" updates. All vids do tell what each person's experience was.

The next two videos show week 1 and week 4 of the same person so they show the journey:

This vid has before/after photos and the lady seems to have avoided the uglies by starting off easy:

I'm using 0.1% Tretinoin for skin texture woes. I'm tolerating it quite well, apart from obvious flaking and irritation on my chin. I'm only using it once every other day (4 days a week). Do you get the same results from using it every other night then you do for applying it everyday? I can use 0.1% because all the others I've tried break me out all the time. Otherwise i will have to try to get a lower percent cream that wont break me out and apply that every day xD

I recall reading a derm somewhere say that every day wasn't necessary and that people could use every other night and achieve the same results without wasting additional product but that was his opinion and I don't think there is any factual science evidence saying it will or won't produce same results however you need to follow your face and skin and see how it reacts.

I have just started using both products, SkinMedica and SkinCeuticals respectively, and my eyes are uber crepey. Is this from one or the other product? And/or will it eventually go away when my skin gets used to it? Help!!
