Default Differin

What do you think of this? I just went to a new derm for something other than acne, and she was all, "You have a serious acne problem that needs to be addressed." My skin was clearer than it has been in years, but anyway...she gave me Differin.

Has it really helped anyone?

I had a lot of acne as a teenager. I tried retin a, cleocin and differin, none really seemed to do much for me.

If the acne doesnt bother you I wouldnt even bother. Alot of people do well on the differin...it helps for clogged pores and blackheads. Its good if you have sensitive skin because it usually doesnt cause alot of dryness because it is milder than RetinA and Tazorac.

Does differin fight wrinkles as well? I have used it for years on my chin for acne, and in general like it. It has helped quite a bit. However, now that I am almost 40, I would like something for my ever increasing crow's feet, etc. I'm wondering if I should get a script for Retin A at my annual skin check next month. Does differin have retinol in it as well? Any feedback would be helpful- hope my guano isn't too shameless.

Differin in the long run does help with wrinkles but it is alot milder in strength than RetinA. I would say if you tolerate the Differin ok try bumping up to the RetinA.
