    Some information on what has happened since i started this thread.

    I've had one session of Fraxel Restore and while some of pores on my nose may be smaller my forehead remains covered in them.

    As someone who used a lightening cream in 2006-7 I advise strongly against it. They can cause photoaging as happened to me. The skin becomes much more sensitive to the sun and photoaging, which can...
  4. Could this be used to reverse skin lightening...

    Could this be used to reverse skin lightening from past use of whitening cream? I used Meladerm for 7 months in 2006-7 and I feel it has ruined my skin. I would like to get my tanning ability back...

    Maybe because I am getting nowhere trying to persuade the ones in Ireland to do a rhinoplasty on me. My nose is very wide and the nostrils and slope too large. They also refuse to fill in a large...

    I have this problem on my forehead. But I tried Benzoyl Peroxide on it last night and today they have almost disappeared. I think it's because large pores can be caused by overproduction of oil by...

    I am a 33 yr old man and have been on Retin-A 0.05 for 15 months because of serious photodamage to my face from (failed) tanning in 2010-11 which had caused large pores, leathery skin and forehead...

    It's very hard to see fine lines on your forehead but I know from my digital camera that they don't always see things as I do depending on resolution.

    Besides Retin-A, I would recommend...

    It takes about a year for you to get changes in your dermis (lower down in the skin). I have been using it for 15 months and I am 33. The texture is better and the enlarged pores are largely gone...

    I imagine a lot of the same dietary rules apply as with aging skin. Antioxidants in the diet will help slow down the aging process there too.

    Retin-A takes a long time to work (at least a year). Maybe you are not giving it a chance. I have not had the problems you described while using it.

    The face is the part of you most exposed to...

    - Moisturiser prevents dehydration of skin, which is a factor in wrinkles.
    - Retin-A is actually the acid form of Vitamin A. Studies show Retin-A/tretinoin tells the DNA-receptors in the skin to...

    As a user of 15 months I recommend Retin-A, avoiding sugary foods (they attack collagen causing aging), and you should eat/drink foods with antioxidants which fight aging e.g. pure fruit juices,...
  14. I have been using Retin-A for 15 months and the...

    I have been using Retin-A for 15 months and the pore/wrinkle/fine lines/texture have improved a lot. So I don't think that's the cause of the problem.

    Some ideas based on my experience as a 33...

    Can it get rid of forehead wrinkles? I have some and I get Botox for them every few months but they don't disappear 100%. I am a 33 yr old man and photoaging signs started appearing in the last 2/3...

    Sorry to hear about your loss.

    I use the 0.05% cream. I have read on a website that the evidence is that it's more effective as a cream than as a gel.
  18. I have the same problem but Retin-A has reversed...

    I have the same problem but Retin-A has reversed some of it. The fine lines on my forehead are greatly reduced. The left side of my face still looks leathery in certain lighting situations though....

    After a couple of months the dry skin problem went away. I have been using Retin-A for over a year.

    I didn't feel any pain when I had my TCA peel, which I think was 15%.

    I only started when I started to get signs of photoaging like enlarged pores, leathery skin and fine lines and wrinkles. I use Retin-A every day. For the first couple of months I had the well-known...

    I have had TCA peels aswell and the effects were minimal. I have large pores too but after 1 yr and 3 months on Retin-A they are now confined to my nose and forehead. I would recommend you go on...

    I am now 9 months into Retin-A and I can't speak highly enough about the product. The main improvement is drastically less visible pores, and reduced roughness of my face's skin texture. I am...
