Re: is hydroxy acid better than retin-a for fading dark spots?
If you mean brown spots not red spots then you would want something that is a lightening prouct. The best ones contain hydroquinone. I think over the counter you can get 1-2% and you can get higher from your derm.Alpha-hydroxies and retin-a won't work like this will for pigmented spots.Avon has a hydoquinone product called banishing cream skin lightening tx. Haven't used it but heard it's good. If you talk to your derm you can probaly get Tri-Luma that's super good for fading spots. If you use these while using an AHA, they'll work even better but an AHA alone won't cut it.
