Has anyone tried Retin-A Micro at nights along with Duac in the mornings and what was your results if any. Please keep them positive, I don't need too much more discouragement, Acne is comming close to killing my highschool social life

i was recently put on the same regime. as of now, i have been using this combination of treatments for about two weeks, and i have already noticed a difference in the texture of my skin. overall, my pores seem smaller, and my skin has a new glow to it. although i have experienced some drying, i was prepared for such a result. with the growth of a new small pimple, the medication seems to speed the healing time, preventing the pimple from turning into a larger cyst.

i am sure that i need to give this regime much more time to completely work, but as of now, i am optimistic.

good luck, and keep me posted!

This has done wonders for me, though I no longer take the oral meds, just the retin=A and the Duac, But my face has been clear for a little over a month now!! your face might peel a little and sting, but dont worry, its 10 times better than having a big ole pimple to deal with...hope this helps...
