I have always had mild acne since high school. Recently I have had more acne than usually. The dermatologist prescribed retina a micro pump.

I started using this about 5 years ago in high school when I had moderate and persistant acne. I started out with a low dose adaptaline and moved up to .04 Retin-a micro. I now have normal skin with smooth texture and no acne scars. Starting this is frustrating because it can make your skin worse before it gets better if your using a too high dose or if your skin gets flaky and irritated but your ... Show Full Comment
