    My derm prescribed this for my adult acne. Truthfully, I very rarely have trouble with acne. I am 32 and concerned about wrinkles. After using this medication three times, I have seen noticeable improvement in my fine lines and wrinkles - they have nearly disappeared. I know this is not the approved usage for this drug, but I like it. I started out by using it every other day to minimize the dryne ... Show Full Comment
