Tretinoin for acne marks

Hi I have combination skin and recently I started facing acne issues. It left marks and my skin tone seems uneven. I have tried the ordinary retinol 1% in squalane for months and now I would like to try tretinoin however it is very hard to get dermatologist to prescribe tretinoin. Please advise.thanks

Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. Unfortunately as I am unable to evaluate your skin condition, it is difficult for me to give a proper diagnosis and treatment on your problem.

It is best for you to talk to your dermatologist on what’s the best plan and treatment for your skin. If you have any more enquiries, you can click on the link (DoctorOnCall) and speak to our doctors in private and get the consultation you need on the phone. Thank you.
