I was on tretinoin plus an antibiotic and evoclin foam and my acne went away after about 4 monthsish. it was moderate acne. It may not be exact time based on tretinoin since I was on other things, but I will say I HIGHLY DOUBT the foam done a single thing lol! The tretinoin will make your face very red and tight for a little bit. I was on the gel.

Hey there.

It takes awhile, but it does a great job. It really pretty much erases them. I would give it 6 months for total PIH annihilation. But it could be sooner. Be patient and follow the instructions when using the retinoid and you should get great results.
