In brief: Tretinoin for Scars

Retrieve cream contains tretinoin.
Tretinoin is most effective in the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and shallow scars. It helps speed up the removal of darkened surface skin cells leading to a more even toned appearance. It is also effective in treatment of shallow scars, such as "ice pick" scars caused by acne. It works by stimulating collagen formation in the effected areas.
