15/F/Fair skin. I'm about 2-3 weeks in and my skin is still adjusting (redness and peeling is occurring)

Thank you for your question about your acne.
Retin A takes about 6 weeks to work.
The first few weeks things look worse - eventually they should look better.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful Best wishes.
