Will Acne Scars Caused by Retin A Eventually Fade?
- Asked by bpo in New York, NY
- 4 years ago
I went to a dermatologist for the first time for something else, but when she noticed a few whiteheads on me, she recommended I use Retin A and gave me samples. I was told to use it and to check back in 2 weeks. Retin A left me with acne scars all over my cheeks. A year later they are still there. Will these Retin A acne scars ever fade naturally after a few years? If not, what can I do? Thank you for your help.

I would suspect that you had acne at the same time as you were applying Retin A. I am also unclear what other dermatologic treatment you were having at the same time during this year. Certainly, if you were having such an untoward reaction to Retin A that it would eventuate in scarring, your dermatologist would have pulled you off of it.
