That seems to be on the weak side. So far, how are you responding to its use? The fiirst time I used it I peeled right away -- it was .05%. I don't know what type skin you have, but mine is fair and sensitive but I am now using .1% which I think is the strongest. I occasionally peel. But peeling is necessary so that the new collagen forms like any peel. I just don't like the fuzzines that I sometimes get, so I use an exfoliating product to smooth it out.
Personally I think that is a good starter strength. I think the optimum strength for wrinkles is .05 so you may want to bump up to that later but doing it this way will likely prevent all the redness and peeling that comes with retin-a (at least it did for me).
Also, noticable effects on wrinkles take at least 6 months according to the things I have read so it is a long term thing for sure!
