- You must get to the “standard” dose of tretinoin and stay there or higher for at least 3 months.
- Don’t scrub your face; the tretinoin makes your skin delicate.
- The tretinoin is the key to changing the intrinsic qualities of your skin. You may want to start with the gradual dose because it initially makes you peel.
- Control amount of Tretinoin (retin-A) if you peel too much or turn red.
- If you need to control itching, tightness and dryness ask for Obagi Hydrate.
