Retin-A strength?

Recommended Posts

Some say that scars can be improved if you use Retin-A over a long period of time, but there are 0,025% / 0,05% / 0,1% strenghts. Is 0,05% "enough"?

gel and cream strengths differ. a gel will be lower percentage but can be as strong as higher percentage cream

for acne scars you probably want .1 cream, but I dont know if they still make that. also don't know if your doctor will give you that, side effects such as skin irritation are higher with higher percentage.

other than improvements in color and slight improvement in texture, dont expect improvement in indents, at least anything hugely noticable
