So I was on accutane for 120 days and I'll say one thing about it, it works MIRACLES. I have red marks and scars on my cheeks from where I had some bad acne. I never break out anymore, but these scars are left over! Anyways, I'm day 5 off accutane and my derm prescribed me tretinoin 0.05% cream and he said use it nightly before bed! and it'll help with hyper pigmentation and scarring? What do y'all think. Please reply!

Tretinoin will only give you very mild results over long peroids of time (months, years), in terms of treating PIH or very minor scarring. Don`t expect too much. Use a real method to get rid of PIH or scarring (e.g. TCA peels for PIH).
