In brief: Tretinoin

The form of tretinoin that is one of the mildest is atralin.
You apply apply a pea size amount to your face at night. This medication is used to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing roughness, and improving skin color. It should be used with a skin care and sunlight-avoidance program that includes moisturizer and daily use of an effective sunscreen.

In brief: Tretinoin, yes,

and always use a high SPF sunscreen every time you go outdoors, even on an overcast day.
Wear a hat whenever possible, and also polarized sunglasses. This is absolutely your best wrinkle prevention, and some sunscreens such as NIA 24 will also help with the acne. Also, eat fruits and vegetables and get plenty of Vits A,E,D, and zinc.

In brief: To what goal?

It is understandable to want to slow the signs of the aging process.
Best to use products that do not "promise" too much. Keep your skin clean, use sun block, use skin block… you see where I am coming from. http://www.drkulick.com/procedures_sr.php.
