Dermarolling / Microneedling / Re: Side effects to Retin-A?
« on: July 05, 2013, 03:41:32 PM »
Hi Sarah,

You were absolutely right, it did pass after a while and the 'new' wrinkles dis sapeared.
I have another question regarding Retin-A.
 have melasma and Retin-A did brighten the dark areas, but I started getting some white areas in the skin as well (looking like loss of pigmentation), can this be due to the Retin-A, is it possible in theory? (it could be because of some other things as well in my skin care routine, but I would like to exclude Retin-A if possible)
And also how long are you suppose to use Retin-A, can you use it for the rest of your live? or is it best just to use it for a certain period..

Hi Sarah,

I have been advised by a dermatologist to use a Retin A micro 0.04% gel, can I use this product:

I do know that the % is not the same, but Im wondering if the 'micro' is a different product? The ones I have seen is awful expensive compared to yours.

Thanks Sarah, phew Im happy to hear that.. I literally look 5 years older.
When do you recommend doing this 'wet a cotton pad with tap water, add some almond oil and apply it to your face.' after applyting the Retin-A or just throughout the day ?

Since I began using Retin-A my face is very dry and furthermore I noticed wrinklelines being much more visible. Is this a side effect for some people? At first I wouldn't believe it as it's actually suppose to help against wrinkles, but then I googled it and found that some people have experienced the same thing.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks, Im almost absolutely certain that i have melasma, which is a big pain. I have been avoiding the sun all summer and it still got significantly worse.  I have also used the incorret skin products, for instance a chemical sunblock instead of a physical, so it could be due to many things.
I will try to continue to dermaroll on an area and keep you udpated.

Hi Sarah,

I think I noticed that the difference between the white and dark areas has become more noticeable, which off course is not good. Is this naturally in the beginning or would you recommend I stop dermarolling?
Or maybe switch to 0,2 mm in order to get better results with Infoldan, a-ret, c-vit etc?

Hi Sarah,

I haven't noticed any changes yet, when using the 0,5 mm dermaroller, but it haven't made it worse (which is the most important for me). This is summertime so the spots always get a little darker, but actually Im satisfied with being able to keep them down to a acceptable level of darkness using spf 50+.
Heres some question I hope you will answer:
- What product would you recommend I use right after dermarolling ?
- Regarding  A-Ret cream 0.025%, should it be applied directly or mixed with another lotion ? Will it only make the skin sensitive for the sun for a certain period (while using it) ?
- What product do you recommend I use on days where I don't needle? vit c ?

Hi Sarah,

I have pigmentation problems similar to dayzee76.

I started using some whitening serums some  time ago, but it seems like I got 'white' spots from this + the dark spots didn't really fade or dissapear, so now my face (only forehead) is a big mess of white and dark areas.
It seems to have gotten a bit worse by time, which confuses me as I very rarely go to the sun (because of this) and use spf 30 in winter & spf 50 in the summer.
I'm actually wondering if it would be an advantage for me to get some sun for the white areas ?

Any advice on what the best treatment should be? Im male 33 years old.

Currently Im using a 0,5 mm dermaroller 2 times a week on the whole area.
What product, do you recommend I use right after needling?
And what product do you recommend I use on days where I don't needle?

I have bought A-Ret cream 0.025%, but have not used it yet as Im afraid my skin will get too sensitive to the skin. Do you just apply this product directly?
