Anyone tried Retin-A for Redmarks and blotchy skin on body

Anyone tried Retin-A for Redmarks and blotchy skin on the body.
This is ofcourse from body acne.
Anyone have any recommendations for this?

Re: Anyone tried Retin-A for Redmarks and blotchy skin on body

I'm using Retin-A right now, it's my second week. It has made me break out and dried my skin up a lot... But I have heard it's supposed to do that at first before it gets better. I don't know what my long term results will be, I'm being as patient as I can right now... I'll let you know how it develops though. Good luck!

Hi, i'v heard the same thing about Retin -A, how it might break you out the first week. I guess the skin has to get used to it.
Have you used Retin-A on your face or body or both.

i use retin a for the last 4 years and i still break out.its no fix for acne it just keeps it under control but you will still get acne.did you know there is 4 different retin a's?..my dermatologist told me there is 4 different retin a's from not so strong drying to the strogest retin a that really dries up a pimple.and you can get retin a in a gel or cream.
