Re: Can I use epidermx and Retin-A-Micro together?

I am also on retinA micro. I e-mailed Amy at Epidermx and asked her about using them together. She didn't know what retinA micro was, but said that they don't usually recommend harsh products, like retinA with the epidermx. I am going to try and decrease my retinA micro applications to every 4 days, and use the epidermx inbetween. I will only use it as a scrub, and will not do the full microdermabrasion treatment. I am to the point that I no longer have any big pimples. Just old marks and some small bumps. (knock on wood).
I probably wouldn't want to decrease my retinA micro applications if I was still breaking out.
I used the RAM on thursday and used a different microdermabrasion cream has a scrub on friday and saturday without a problem. Sunday I took a break, and tonight I will use my RAM again.
I can let you know how it is going once I get the epidermx.

I wouldnt know about this...but, I use the Epidermx, I dont think it'd be really smart to be mixing that strong of medicine with it? because you are doing a microdermabrasion to your skin, removing layers of dead skin...I would imagine it causing some sort of reaction or something...

That's just my opinion, I dont know what Retin-A is or anything though, so I guess my opinion stands at just that lol.
