Retin-a-micro...has it thinned your skin?

I have been on retin-a-micro (the lower dosage) for about 8 and half months and it has helped but I just wanted to know if it has thinned anyone else's skin?? Towards the beginning my red marks would go away pretty fast because of the retin-a-micro's exfoliating abilities, but lately my red marks are taking forever to go away. I don't really have acne but I have OCD and am a skin picker and have recently had a bad episode and it seems like my red marks are so deep. Even if i don't pick really hard or deep and just scratch the surface the mark lasts a long time. The mark will scab and it will peel off and then there will be a pink mark that persists. Has anyone else experienced this? Thank You!
