Does Tretinoin Cream Work For Acne
Use forever: I love tretinoin and think that every non-pregnant person should be using this (until it expires, of course). A small pea sized amount to your entire face at night is recommended. You can use it elsewhere if desired but not overuse as will cause irritation. Works for acne, pigmentation, mild scars, and reversing sun damage. Use the right sunscreen daily and give it 6-9 months for best results. ...Read more

Best non prescription retin a (tretinoin) cream I can buy online for cheap for wrinkles and acne. I've tried some but non work?

If she has an illness, then getting healthy may improve her appearance. ...Read more
Since I'm on tretinoin cream which speeds up your cell turnover rate, would getting gylcolic peels for acne scars actually work faster?
Not for scars: I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. Nothing you can apply will touch them. If you want them less visible, a plastic surgeon or dermatologist can do laser, filler, or microsurgery. Several Hollywood male stars have kept their scars for "tough guy" roles, and depending on your self-concept, they may be a plus. ...Read more
