Will RETIN A always work or do you have an alternative for pitted scars?

Retin-A and Icepick Scars
Pitted scars and Retin A
Unfortunately, Retin A will not resolve pitted scars. Microneedling with PRP can help pitted scars, as can 90% TCA applied with a toothpick into each scar, or removing each one and closing up the skin with stitches. We also see improvement in pitted scars with a filler called Bellafill.
You might wish to consult a dermatologist skilled in these procedures. I am not sure about Orlando, but in Tampa Dr. Milan Lombardi is familiar with all of these approaches.
All the best,Dr. Clark
