I have been curing my acne with decutan medicine, it improved and all the pimples are gone after a complete course, but the marks remained there like small reddish staines and the face does not look smooth, about 4 weeks ago on doctors prescription started the differin cream, but I have not seen any improvement yet, is this normal, or does help to remove the remaining marks? Thanks
Differin (adapalene) is a topical medicine (a medication that is applied to the surface of the skin) similar to vitamin A. It helps the skin to renew itself.
Differin is used to treat severe acne in people who are at least 12 years old. It works by decreasing acne formation.
I don't think Differin will help to clear the scars.
since I am not a doctor the things about this is it contains help with Vitamin A it also helps reduce the formation of the stuff inside the pimple or acne I have not been able to find where it heals scars this is something that you may need to talk to your dermatologist (skin doctor) about I wish you all the best,
