User Comments about Retin-A
08 Jul 2010 In reference to effectiveness, I expected more from Retin-A but at the same time it was the most effective treatment that I had ever used for my acne.

17 Jun 2010 I got this as a teenager with very bad acne, it did not work extraordinary well. It dried out my skin and made it flaky, I think I would have been better off with something different.

16 Feb 2010 I've been on Retin-A before and didn't have much success, but I was recently put on it again and have been a lot more successful with it. No real complaints minus the fact that it does not clear up old scarring.
