Tazorac vs. Azelex?

Does anyone have an opinion on which is better, Tazorac or Azelex? I'm using Tazorac, which seems to have helped at first, but now I don't see anymore improvement. I've read that Azelex is good. Has anyone tried both of these and have an opinion on which is better?

Re: Tazorac vs. Azelex?

I started using Azelex before Tazorac, and I did not see much improvement. I thought the Azelex helped with the healing and scarring, but not with preventing the acne. About a month and half ago I started using Tazorac and I have definetely seen results. At first I use Tazorac every night, but I am now using it every other night, and on the off nights I use Azelex. I am very happy with Tazorac, but I am also on Minocyline (4 months now) and I just started Diane-35 this past week.
I would recommend that you give Tazorac a chance!

Re: Tazorac vs. Azelex?

Thanks Meg. What kind of scarring does Azelex help with? The red marks or the deeper scars? I might give that a try along with Tazorac.
