    Quick Question about Tazorac/Redness/Shallow Pitted Scars

    Quick Question for all you good folks out there. I was wondering if Tazorac creme makes pigmentation worse, meaning redder, and if so, is it temporary?

    I ask this because I'm doing a series of chem peels and have shallow pitted scars on both cheeks which also are areas of redness and since they are starting to lighten, I was wondering if using the Tazorac, though good to keep acne at bay, would that contribute to redness and worsen the look of the scars? I don't want to be lightening by chem peels on one hand and then darkening with Tazorac on the other.

    Ai. Acne. I have to remind myself that I'm not a teenager, I only look like one.
    Also, have any of you had experience using Tazorac long-term to notice a diminished appearance of scars. Curious. Thanks in advance for your time and thoughts.

    in my experience tazorac helped a lot with zits, but made my whole face really red. Also making what I had stand out a lot more. If you want to be on a retinoid, try differin (although it's not a true retinoid and actually a synthetic retinoid-like compound) it is not quite as effective as tazorac but MUCH gentler.
