Please, Pease Help! Will Retin A Micro Make These Go Away? (Picture)

Recommended Posts

I've been using retin a micro 0.4% for 6 weeks and I feel like it's helping, but I would really like a second opinion. Also, would you say this is post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation or red marks? My derm says it's hyper-pigmentation, but I keep reading on the internet that red marks are not pigmentation. Thanks smile.png OH AND I didn't start retin a micro for acne I started it for the marks.

Aren't red marks and PIH the same thing? Perhaps I'm wrong, but I've always thought people just liked calling them PIH for short.

Anyhow, I've read retin-A helps fight acne and marks at the same time. If I were you, I'd keep using it and hope for improvement. Take pictures weekly and see if you're getting any better. If not, once you're off retin-A, you can try TCA, mandelic, glycolic, microdermoabration, etc.

Good luck!
