Can tretinon 0.05 damage my skin?

I'm 22 and have been on tretinon for 4 weeks now. Is it true that this cream thins the skin permanently? I got it for my uneven skin tone and lately I've noticed fine lines in chin area that I've never had before. Why is it causing fine lines did I damage my skin ? Also my skin has been peeling like crazy. Please help I'm worried that i prematurely aged my face.

Retinols can strengthen skin function and structure; a function that is supported by clinical studies. My preference is the RR Retinoid Repair Cream.
