    Odd that he doesn't know about it.

    Retin-A comes in different strengths. I use 0.025% and the cream, not the gel.

    There is a prescription-strength Retinol version that is weaker than Retin-A but still stronger than the OTC stuff, from what I understand.

    Insurance pays more for the generic version, which works just fine with me. The generic name is tretinoin.

    I stopped using any facial scrubs because I use the cream pretty much nightly, so my face can't take any more abrasion without showing it. Moisturizing is now essential because it is drying.

    It also cleared off some old acne marks and changes in pigmentation as well as decreasing the wrinkles.

    ^^I thought it was odd as well but he is a bit of an old fashioned doctor. Oh well next time I am there, I will ask again about it and use the generic name tretinoin. I want some dammit!

    It's a vitamin A cream and a prescription is required for a reason. We can now only get the lowest level of vitamin A available here in Europe (higher grades have been ruled unsafe). As you're down under you must also be very careful with the risk of photosensibilisation - I don't use it during the summer even though I wear the strongest sunblock most of the time
