Tazorac or Retin A?

Recommended Posts

Hello. Ive read that Retin A can help with the healing of scars, but it as effective as Tazorac when it comes to getting rid of acne. Also, i have been wondering if Tazorac does anything to improve scars much like Retin A. I am trying to decide what medication to go on since I have acne scars and still break out.

I am prepping myself for Fraxel treatment in a few months. Does anyone know if my skin will be too sensitive after using these topical creams and how long I should wait. Please help.

From what my derm told me, Tazorac is much better/stronger/more effective at everything than Retin-A.

As for your Fraxel question, I'm not sure. That would probably be a question for your derm.
