Done with Differin

Saramarie7

291 views

I would not recommend differin. It made my face worse than it was before. I've never had this many scars and hyperpigmentation, I have like thirty red lesions on my face now. Ugh! I finally when to the dermatologist and she recommended me doxycycline for my acne and I've been using the Banish Acne Scar kit for my scarring. Don't buy differin, you're wasting money and ruining your skin.

I'm sorry that you are struggling like this.  The unfortunate part of retinoids is that the purge can continue up to 3 months so  unless you continue to that time, you won't knwo if it would have worked for you.

Good luck with your next steps.

This is the identical journey for my young teenage daughter.  Last ditch attempt by gp was differin. Made it far worse and the scars left behind are worrying. ...so private consultation with a dermatologist and she's now on doxycycline. How is it going for you?  Did you have an initial breakouts?
