Does using Retin-A help fade red marks? How does it compare with things like aloe vera gel or apple cider vinegar?

yes. its best to pair it with a cream containing hydroquinone as well for better results. make sure not to use too much, and to wear sunscreen at all times during the day. retin a is very irritating and causes lots of redness if youre not careful with it.

retin a micro is good, however stay away from the sun whenever possible and dont apply too much as it will cause flaking. yes it'll get rid of redmarks quicker than most treatments.

i believe the whole point of using a retinoid was to speed up cellular turnover, so you would want it to cause flaking....flaking looks bad, but it is a good thing.
