Retin A for colored acne scars nyc new york ny

Retin A can help for red or brown acne scars by increasing the rate of cell turnover. The rate of cell turnover is the time it takes for skin cells to develop, die and flake off. By increasing this rate, Retin A can help remove the pigment associated with acne scars by causing these colored cells to flake off more quickly than without it.

Retin A will not help for textured acne scars.
