Help! I had a bad habit of rubbing my face and now my skin is stretched out.

Help! I had a bad habit of rubbing my face and now my skin is stretched out and sagging. I was wondering if the skin will go back to normal, since I'm only 18. If not, would Retin A help? Or would I be a candidate for a face lift?

Definitely an issue for both your skin doctor and your family doctor...

you need some help to stop rubbing your face...this may require some internal medication...and  you need to see a skin doctor to determine the extent of your problem...many people have false ideas of what normal is with reference to the skin...without a picture it's impossible to know what issues you may have...so 1st things 1st...see the family doctor...and by the way, a face lift at 18 is not on the table...
