anyone a dermatologist??

  1. I started using Retin-A and I noticed that it's making my face darker. I haven't been in the sun much so it's not just a tan. All of the literature on the drug says that it's a common side effect of Retin-A, but I can't find out what causes the face to darken and what I should do. I'ts hard to get an appointment with my derm, so I'm looking for a little advice because I would really like to continue using it, but not if it means my face is 3 shades darker.
