Thereof, when should I use Retin A Micro?

Retin-A Micro (tretinoin gel) microsphere, 0.1% and 0.04%, should be applied once a day, in the evening, to the skin where acne lesions appear, using enough to cover the entire affected area lightly.

Similarly, is Retin A Micro better? All in all, both Retin-A and Retin-A Micro are good options for treating acne. Retin-A Micro tends to be less irritating and less drying than Retin-A. It may be slightly more effective, in part because you will be more likely to use it if it isn't as irritating.

Similarly one may ask, can you use Retin A Micro twice a day?

You'll use Retin-A Micro at first every other night before bed, on average three times per week, then slowly work your way up to applying Retin-A Micro every night as your skin gets used to it. After your skin is thoroughly dry, apply your medication over your entire face.

Can I use Retin A Micro in the morning?
