Hello, my Name is Genitt and i have been using retin A micro gel for almost 8 weeks now. I am glad to say that my skin has gotten significantly better since I first started the treatment. However, my dermatologist told me to use it in the mornings, and gave me a free 8 week trial with some samples. Now that i have bought the actual gel, it says on the pamphlet or (patient information leaflet) to apply it at night... and when i googled it and browsed around sites like these, it pretty much states that people use it at night :o so i'm wondering if i should continue to use it in the mornings, or if I should start using it at nights... or, if it even really matters. Thank you!
Genitt, you are right the net does say that it should be used in the evenings, since your doc did prescribe it to be used during the day & you have been benefited, don't really see a reason that you should alter the timing. However in case of doubts, please seek professional second opinion.
Take care & be well.
