differin vs. retinol

Question: I am a 60 year old female and was just at a dermatologist. I asked for Retinol A to help with fine lines and wrinkles that come with age! I was prescribed Differin instead. All the information I get on the internet plus the information included with my prescription say only for acne. The Differin I received is 0.1%. Will this help me with my wrinkles?
Answer:

Differin is for the most part indicated for acneic clients, thus I’m not certain why your dermatologist wouldn’t have simply given you Retin-A…I suggest you contact your dermatologist directly for more information and answers regarding your skin and the prescription they gave you. Best skin care wishes.
