I have been taking Retin-A Micro 0.04% for 3 months now and I continue to have new breakouts almost weekly (whiteheads and sometimes red pimples with no heads). I'm starting to think if I will ever see the results I hear so many talk about. I read I should see full results in 12 weeks but I have also read that others suggest at least a 6 month regime before giving up. I'm not sure what to do...please help!
The dermatologist explained to me that the retin-a micro will force all the bad stuff deep down in my skin to the surface. BUT does the bad stuff ever stop!? Or does my body just continually produce bad stuff that will continually be forced to the surface? I feel like I'm stuck in a cycle. Can anyone relate to this same problem after months of using Retin-A.
I've tried so many things in the past...I so badly want this to be the answer I've been so desperately looking for.
