It cures firstly by increasing the problem then heal it throughly. Retinoid may cause inflammation in under surface acnes & pop it upwards so initial days might be horrible because of pus and redness on the problematic areas but after 3-4 days it starts drying off with reduced pain. Soon after dried dead acne layer falls off leaving the surface without any scars.
The point worth mentioning is that don’t pop your acne ever if you want a successful retinoid treatment as popping acne cause permanent scar which might be unpleasant.
