extractions while using retin a

Question: I am using retin a to help an adult acne problem, but would also like to have extractions done. is this ok to do?

It is suggested to avoid extractions while using Retin-A, however if you wish to have a facial and include extractions I suggest you stop using the Retin-A temporarily, say about a week to two weeks, and then continue use again after your facial has been performed. Best skin care wishes.
