From accutane to tretinoin

Recommended Posts

So I just finished my extended course of accutane. The last month I only had a small break out which consisted of two tiny pimples. Now all I have left are bumpy red scars. So my derm gave me tretinoin. Has anybody tried this? Also, is it good to use moisturizer over the tretinoin at night?

Yes. It aids the skin to exfoliate faster which helps to fade the hyperpigmentation you've got. Putting on moisturizer is fine. Just give the medicine some time to be absorbed into the skin first.
