I am a 34 year old female living in Manhattan. I have been using Retinoid pads as a preventative anti-aging treatment. I seem to be losing some hair along the frontal hairline. Is there any way these could be to blame? I have heard there may be a correlation between the two.


Vitamin A, taken orally in high doses, is a culprit when it comes to hair loss. The dosage that is contained in the retinoid pads is a very low, low dosage therefore is likely not to blame. More common side effects of retinoids to sensitive skin are irritation, redness and flaking.
