Does Differin Have Anti-Aging Effects?

more precisely, does it promote collagen? i know it is milder than retin a and takes longer to work, but eventually does it have similair results in terms of fading scars and post-inflammatory-hyperpigmentation?

Supposedly it doesn't do much for collagen, which is why insurances will prescribe Differin after age 25 but many won't pay for Retin A. The logic is if you're getting Retin A at an older age it's more for the wrinkles than the acne. But Differin's anti-aging isn't strong enough for them to worry about it.
