how long does it take for retin a to work

i have been using retin-a for 2 weeks it is really making a difference. yes your face will seem like it is getting worse and red and it will be very sore. that is the whole point though. retin-a will peel your skin so that you have new skin and it will be soft and your pimples will start fading away but it just takes some time.i wash my face in the night before i go to bed and then just put the retin-a on my pimples i dont cover my whole face. eventually your face will get very sore to help with this i put on aloe every night and also neo sporin, this will sting sometimes but it will help and heal your peeling. if you keep on it youll definatley see a difference. just use the retin-a a week and then let it rest for about two weeks and start all over again. just give it a try!
