Removing Acne Scars With Tretinoin Cream
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.
Will tretinoin cream helps to fade or remove post acne boxcar scars?? Or anything else is preferable??

Why does tretinoin cream 0.1 makes ance worst for the worst few weeks? And how good do you think it works for acne and scars after the first few weeks
Acne and patience: Acne treatment virtually require long term follow up on a regimen as any cream or emollient will cause initial reaction to inflammed skin. Generally three month patient trial of one regimen is warranted before another medication is tried. Tretinoin creams can work on mild-moderately severe comodomal acne, in conjunction with long term antibiotic, usuallu ally Tetracyclin family.

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.
It may: Kojic acid is an agent that helps to decrease darkly pigmented areas. Retin a (tretinoin) along with the kojic acid can augment the effectiveness in reducing areas of hyper pigmentation. Remember to practice safe sun exposure by always wearing a good sunscreen to prevent further pigmentation.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi Docs. I am 18 y/o and have had acne for almost 2 yrs. I've tried EVERYTHING from the drugstore, and even tretinoin cream. What should I do?
Tretinoin: Tretinoin can lighten skin by getting rid of old skin and causing lighter new skin
If I use proactive dark spot corrector and retin a (tretinoin) 0.25 can it help with my acne scars?
No: Neither will touch actual depressed scars, not can anything else. At best, you can hide your hyperpigmented lesions and even this is likely not to be very successful. Get your active disease under control, and if you wish, get seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can deal with the scars using a filler, laser or microsurgery.

Best non prescription retin a (tretinoin) cream I can buy online for cheap for wrinkles and acne. I've tried some but non work?
For wrinkles...: Before a one spends money on creams, vitamins, or supplements to try to look better, she should see his regular doctor to be sure she is in good health. If she is indeed in great health, then her wrinkles are due to age, sun damage, smoking, or genetics; which means over-the-counter creams will not make a difference. If she has an illness, then getting healthy may improve her appearance.
