literature supporting .05% vs .1% Tretinoin

Postby jaggirl » Mon Jun 08, 2009 4:56 pm

Hi, KadeeBelle

Have a quick question for you. I started Obagi Condition and Enhance Feb 23, 2009 with .05% Tretinoin and Blender nightly. I have rosacea and started with only 1/4 gram nightly and have worked up to 1 gram for last 2 1/2 weeks. I just bought a new tube of .05% Tretinoin several weeks ago and now my esthetician is recommending I go to .1%. I have seen your posts that .05% is just as effective, yet less reactive. Could you please tell me where I can find the study supporting this, so I can share it with my esthetician and doctor? I'm not sure why she thinks I need to do this, unless it is because I still display an uneven skin tone, which may be more from the rosacea than anything else. I am doing well and only have the mildest flaking here and there. Thank you for your reply

I will find the articles! If you search www.pubmed.gov and find an abstract that you would like, email me, and I can retrieve for you in the meantime.... I don't have a saved copy of my source, and the next month is going to be tough for me to spend time on it... but I will. :)
I no longer post regularly on MMH, but i'm delighted to help those with skin care questions. My email is the best way to contact me: admin@vmdskincare.com. Wishing you happy, healthy, and flawless skin ;)!

Thanks for your reply, Kadee. I know you are really busy with your classes and all. Of course, that has priority. I spent some time on PubMed today but no luck with my searches. I'm sure I just haven't come up with the right search terms, but I will keep trying and if I come up with anything I'll let you know. Thanks a million for all you do to answer people's questions. You are going to make a great doctor someday.
