I have a dermatologist appointment in about a month or so for my acne and extremely horrible scarring the acne has been leaving and I'm hoping if I'm prescribed tretinoin it works fast to fade out the scars...
Retin-A Micro (tretinoin gel) should be applied once a day, in the evening, to the skin where acne lesions appear. Therapeutic results may be noticed after two weeks, but more than seven weeks of therapy are required before consistent beneficial effects are observed. The previous scaring is not likely to dramatically change but tretinoin is useful for preventing new scars from forming.
