what do you consider a fair price? And tretinoin (Retin-A) is tough to find without a prescription.

I have a prescription. A fair price would be around $33 for 40 grams.

I have always used the cream made by Johnson and Johnson. That is the real one. Thanks for your help.

I get my real deal johnson and johnson prescription filled at a local Canadian pharmacy - 23 dollars for 30 grams strength .05 and bar none the BEST thing i've ever done for my skin. It lasts a minimum of 5 months as a little goes such a long way. I wouldn't take chances with the Indian stuff but that's just me.

Would I have to go to a doctor first for a prescription or could I just go to a local pharmacy?

I get mine at the local rexall pharmacy. It is a pretty fair sized chain in Canada. Not sure how it works filling prescriptions from outside Canada but here is a link

I'm not sure how it is outside Canada (you need a script here) so I just went to the DOC and asked if I could go on retin a to help me control my facial oilyness and blackheads. Took the script to the pharmacy and voila..23 bucks and 3 months later great skin! I've had many compliments...

Just remember with Retin A - it can cause facial redness and some peeling/dryness for the first few weeks.. For this reason I recommend starting out with .025 strength every other day to see how your skin reacts. The redness will subside after about 4-5 weeks so hang in there because great skin will be around the corner..

I do believe that Retin A is the only substance proven to visibly improve the look of the skin including diminish wrinkles...(beside surgery) it does something to the collagen/elastin matrix in the skin.. Most everything else is probably an expensive gimmick..
