My doctor recently put me on Retin-A 0.1% for acne. I've been on it before, but a much lower dose. My question is for anyone who has been on Retin-A. How long does your skin peel? My face never peeled on the lower % of it. I started using this new one 3 days ago. I know it's going to be peeling for a while, but how long? When I asked my doctor, he gave me a general answer "anywhere from a few days to a month, or more" So I took that as, he didn't know. Anyway help would be appreciated, thanks.

  • Mine peeled really bad for at least 2 months before I had enough. It was painful and by the end of the day all of my make up was gone. I don't remember the dose though... it was awhile ago. I hope your experience is better!
