Is Retin-A Better At Fading Red Marks Than An Aha?

24 March 2014 - 08:10 AM

So I am on retin a mirco .1%, and have not seen much improvment in hyperpigmentation over the course of 4-5 months.


I seems that alot of people have success with an AHA at fading hyperpigmentation. However, I was thinking that there is no way 10% aha is stronger than retin a micro, which would mean aha wouldn't work for me either.


My question is - Is AHA very good specifically for the treatment of hyperpigmentation (even better than retin a is)?


I'm going to ask my dermatologist if introducing an aha into my regimine is a good idea, but I was wondering what someone who has more knowledge of this stuff thinks. Thanks!
