Yes: Medications that contain a retinoid (such as adapalene, tretinoin, or tazarotene) have a powerful effect on preventing acne lesions, but also help smooth scarring and lighten marks (hyperpigmented areas) left by pimples. It can be a slow process, but little by little this medication should help.

Epiduo has a vitamin: A derivative, so it can cause skin sensitivity especially when it comes to waxing. So just stop the epiduo for 3 days prior to waxing.
