Retin A is unlikely to make a 24 year old look 16. They effects may be more prevention in your case unless you already have fine lines freckles, and textural changes from sun damage. Having started using a retinoid young, and if you avoid sun bathing, tanning booths and smoking, you may never develop these changes.
