Can Retin-A be used for blackheads on my nose?
I took Accutane as a 20 year old and my skin has been pretty great. My only complaint is that I do have a lot of blackheads in my nose. I do try and squeeze them out at night, but I was wondering if Retin-A could prevent new blackheads from forming on my nose?
Getting rid of blackheads on your nose is only possible if you can soften the dead skin cells in that area, which will release the blackheads from the pores. Some products will actually encourage more blackheads to form, including makeup and sunscreen with mineral oil and petroleum. So, based on this information. I used oil-free products and I use Retin-A which is prescribed by my doctor.
The Retin-A is actually a great product to use for acne treatment, blackheads and whiteheads because it encourages the removal of the top layer of skin and generates the production of new healthy cells. Your doctor will give you instructions on how often to apply the Retin-A, how to use it to dissolve your blackheads, treat acne and lighten any acne scars that you may have. I'm thrilled with the results that I've gotten with Retin-A. My face is clear, my pores are unclogged and previous acne scars are fading.
