| | retin-a effects not lasting?
In another acne forum I read that the good effects from retin-a were not permanent-that when the medication was stopped, the plumpness of the skin it caused would dissappear and acne scars would then be visible. Is this what retin-a does? I thought it just made the shedding of cells increase and could possibly encourage collagen growth, but did not know that you would have to continue its use for the rest of your life! Theres not much of a chance that if my 18 year old son's acne does ever stop, he will continue with the retin-a!! Anyone have any proof of this?
