Good retinoid for super-sensitive skin with several mild indented scars?

Recommended Posts

I haven't been to a derm in ages since the last one I saw had me on Duac/Differin every day and I ended up looking like a bumpy tomato covered in bacon grease. However, all of my pimples are now leaving shallow dented scars in my face, and I think I'm going to have to cave in and make an appointment. I'd like to know in advance what products to ask the derm about, and I could use some recommendations.

My skin is very sensitive and red even when I'm not using a topical, and is dry and a bit oily. I have tiny inflamed and non-inflamed bumps all over my forehead, and get anywhere from 5-10 large and small pustules scattered all over my face in a week. Everything heals verrrrry slowwwwly.

What retinoid is good for skin like mine? How often should I use it? Can it improve the appearance of shallow indented scars?
