Haven't looked at the study, but let's assume it is legit. The benefits of retin-a still vastly outweigh any potential negatives.
What are the benefits of Retin a ?

Listen fucking cunt such a shame youre banned and maybe cant see this but you are in no position to tell me to post pic or shut the fuck up when you yourself claimed to get 2 inches dick length increase but refused to post a picture or any evidence.

if theres one larping faggot is YOU.

Also, I did suffer fat loss but I do admit it could be related to something eelse. Maybe its that since retin a makes u more suspectible to sun damage your fat pads are also more sensitive too and unless you have some landwhale % you might experience this.

eduardkoopman @eduardkoopman So your original hypothesis was that Tretinoin might not make the fat disappear, as previously thought, but rather make it more compact? Did I understand correctly?

If dont want to risk undereye volume be it fat loss or that it's more compact, then don't put it there.

The rest I don't have any complain

Why is this in the best-of-the-best when there have been no studies proving that retin-a causes fat loss? A few anecdotes posted on Reddit doesn't mean it's true...

Not that I care but you should probably read the thread because someone else proved it in the comments. I don't care to explain it myself because I don't have this particular side effect and I have been using tret for a year.

brb gonna smeal retin A on my fat ass to finally loose some weight..

but srs if this is actually true, then there now exists a way to target specific areas for fat loss

(every fitness hipster youtuber tells you otherwise, there does not exist a way to loose fat lets say only in the face, or only in the stomach area, you can only loose fat everywhere at the same time (depending on your fat distribution genetics also ofc))

edit: the effect is called spot reduction

It is not, it's just fear mongering

And even if it is (it isn't) you can gain the fat again, it's not a permanent loss.

Read this quote below + Dr. Tony pretty much confirmed that OP doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about

Dope said:
This was mentioned previously in this thread but let me go into more depth.

Retin-A and other things derived from Vitamin A have been shown to lower white adipose (bad fat!). But this is only prevalent in systematic effects of tretinoin. Although oral intake has both systematic and topical effects (works similarly to accutane or Isotretinoin), tropical tretinoin does not have systemic effects at all and is purely cosmic. Topically, tretinoin causes cells on the skins surface to produce more collagen which allows for the structure of the skin on the face to be more sturdy which is the exact opposite, so topical effects are desirable and are present in both forms. Unfortunately not enough research has been done to completely confirm this. Also think of it like this. Wrinkles are difficult to erase, but fat pads can easily be replaced with fat transfer or fillers. I would rather have perfect skin with shit pads than damaged skin with good fat pads.

TLDR: Loss of subcutaneous fat only applies to oral tretinoin. Topical effects are good and is present in both oral and tropically applied forms. Systematic effects may be harmful but are only exist in oral tretinoin. But even then the fat it burns is bad fat.

You will looks like shit either way when you're old, with or without buccal fat pads.

Ok, so I'm back from some reading about Tretinoin and fat loss, on posts from Longecity.org forums.

They're surprisingly also generally on board with your theory:


I'll post more relevant threads from there after this.

My strategy would be to keep doing it for collagen, then replace lost volume, if any, with fillers under eyes.

Tret fucked my shit up tbh. Affected my eyes so now I have dry painful eyes 24/7 even weeks after quitting. I never applied it directly on my undereye area.
Skin is also permanently dry & tight even with tons of moisturizing, like my skin refuses to absorb anything. I believe my moisture barrier is destroyed, maybe worse. It also gave me enlarged pores and pores connect on my forehead giving the illusion of wrinkles which I didn't have before. Yes I used sunscreen and moisturized while on it.

It is already known that retinoids are bad for your meibomian glands, who knows what kind of other bad stuff it's also doing that we'll find out in decades? Retinoids are not for everyone, IMO.

I’m seeing so much conflicting info. What’s the verdict? I’m planning on starting tret soon but my midface is already pretty flat so I can’t really afford to lose any volume there. But there’s nothing as good for retaining collagen with age as tret so idk.

How long? Have you lost facial fat? Or fat around the eye area leading to more UEE or worse undereye support.
