OK to have a facial while using Retin-A?

Asked by Tam

Can I have a facial while I’m using retin-A to treat my acne spots?? I’m on retin-A for a month and a week now, and the spots are less but I’m afraid that a facial will cause more pimples hence more spots. Thank you dr.

    It is OK to have a gentle facial while on Retin-A. Just make sure that they don’t use any oil based products during the facial and that they don’t push too hard. Put on sunscreen right after the facial before any moisturizer.
