Does Retin-A help fill in shallow pitted scars with collagen?

Recommended Posts

The title says it all,, Does retina help improve the look of shallow pitted scars?? Including chicken pox scars .. Also does it help get rid of PIH? How long will this process take?

I'd be curious to know this too! I have depressed acne scars that i'm hoping will go away eventually with the retin a.

it does over time. It will take awhile to see improvement. When you begin to get clear you'll start to notice more scaring that wasn't there before. Retnoids thin the upper layer of your skin and strengthen the lower layer where scaring and wrinkles occur.
