What are some of the positive effects people have had from retin-A? I am hoping it will even out skin tone a little and clear up zits! 29 and still getting zits

I have used Retin-A in the past. It did wonders for my skin - eliminated breakouts, smoothed the texture and evened out the skin tone. I would try it, it really is a miracle drug for your skin.

Thanks for your reply Susan! Does anyone think it helps to firm skin? Is it safe to use in small amount in the under eye area?

Jamie, talk to you doctor or dermatologist.

Allie, I think that the question you should be asking is what side-effects does Retin-A have. Of course, it will work; it's a proven drug, but at what cost?

Depression, dry skin, sun sensitivity, amongst a list of other things. You have to ask yourself, is it worth it? I doubt that at 29 you'll need something that harsh anyways. You should start with a basic skin care regimen and go from there.
