Retin-A is a great anti-aging and anti-acneic product.  Unfortunately, there is not a single product that is a cure all for acne.  Retin-A can help deminish some outbreaks but bundling with other products on different times of the day can help even more.  Consult with your provider for options. 

Hope this helps.
