Questions about retin a

Recommended Posts

I have mild acne, but am afraid its going to revert to its old state. I was wondering if retin a will work for my mild acne...does the acne adapt to it, and does it stop working? I mean i really dont have much anymore, im just afraid my antibiotics are starting to fail. I dont mind an initial breakout as long as i think it will work in the long run.

also, i have some weird wrinkle or line on my forehead, will it help that?

cool. im not really worried about the wrinkle. acne is where it's at.

Good to hear its working, how bad was your initial breakout, and does it help with red marks?

:D

i dont believe acne can adapt to retin a because retin a isnt actually targeting acne bacteria. its used to open up the pores of your skin. your skin flakes like crazy so pimples dry and flake off and it will smooth out small wrinkles over time. of course i could be making this all up...im just going by what i remember my dermatoligist saying when he was prescribing it.
