So, Retin-A 0.05% = about Retinol 0.0025% I guess
Retinol 1.0% is comparable to tretinoin 0.02% so I guess it's about 50x weaker

You're 15, you should stop using it before you revert to the skin of a fetus

High IQ OP mentioned using it as spot reduction? It's pretty cumbersome for it to go systemic.

I’ve seen retards go with like 1% strength retin A or some shit like that, utter needless, for anti aging purposes 0.025% is enough

so stick to 0.025% and you should be fine

If you’re below 25 don’t even fucking bother jfl

For acne it’s ok, for antiaging is overkill

IMO Tret is worth it if you have sun damage. Any minor fat loss or collagen nuking is minor compared to the huge benefit of reversing sun damage. If you were a retarded kid then use Tret no matter what, the upside is higher than the downside. This is where I fall. I did outdoor manual labor every summer in high school. Tret has massively improved my appearance. I’d say it made my skin go from failo to almost halo.

if you’re pasty white and spent your teens playing halo reach eating Doritos all summer then maybe this thread’s debate is more relevant to you.

I have an over abundance of subcutaneous fat in my cheek area so I see this as an absolute win.
Could this be applied to the submental area as well or no?

Hollow cheeks without lateral/anterior projection of zygos OR forward maxilla would look weird ngl tbh

I think it's best to use tretinoin just 1-2x/week with 0,025% to minimize any side effects and still get 95% of the benefits.
The most retarded thing you can do is to use that shit everyday with the highest strength, it's insane how many people are completely lacking common sense

Doesn't make sense still.

If you get 95% of benefits out of 100 from it's effectiveness in body then you also get 95% of sides

Absolute nonsense what you typed there, not want to disrespect you tho

That's like saying it's the same when you drink 0,25L beer once a week vs if you drink 1L everyday lol
It's all about moderation, side effects occur with everything if you use things too much, even with the most basic things like drinking too much water

No bro what you said doesn't make sense still.

If you get effectiveness of 95% from something you will also get 95% of sides from it.

If you drink beer to get 95% max drunk and max drunk is 6l then and 6.5l you are done dead, but if you go 95% you get 95% sides.

It scales with each other. Sides with effectiveness. Because as effectivene as it is it goes both ways

How do you come to that conclusion lol
It's not linear, Law of diminishing returns. In many cases less is more
For example, if you use tretinoin 1x/week 80% effectiveness with 20%/barely any side effects, if you use it everyday you could get 90% effectivness but with 80%/heavy sides
