This shit eradicates them

Used to have some small blackhead on my nose, now can walk up to the mirror at 1 mm distance and you still can’t see any

For how long have you been using it? When did you start seeing results?

Generally? Some people can get irritation or break outs when they first start using it, hence why they start once a week, then bump to twice a week etc…But it goes away once the body builds a tolerance

I applied hefty amount from day 1, everyday lol. No side effects for me other than small skin flaking (which is a good sign, means the retin A it’s working)

In the long term it’s a great investment brother. You’ll look 25 in your 50’s. Just make sure to always wear SPF if you use retin A

Idk about acne as I never suffered from that issue. I use it for the latter reason you mentioned, anti-aging…it seems to work great for that

I guess blackheads can be thrown into the same category as acne, never helped with those either tbh, and my acne was a mild case. Great for anti-aging tho

Maybe
Mine were not visible unless came close to the mirror, had them on nose. But after 1 month of retin A, it’s all gone

Unlucky how retin A didn’t work for ya. But have you found something that worked for your mild acne eventually?

Nothing really. Washing my face seems to help And improving my diet helps as well. I would say the acne is pretty mild so if my hygiene is good and I’m eating properly, it’s not really much of an issue. If I start eating lots of sugar tho and stop washing my face, it gets a lot worse.

I have curology and this is my dose I've never tried it before... is this a good starting dose? Should I ask them to increase it?

Dosage is too small imo bro. Smallest dose should be 0.025%, but I personally recommend starting on 0.05%
