Even with the increased hair growth, I would not give up retin-a as it is great for reducing break outs and keeping your skin looking young. That's how I console myself about having acne--at least I'll have better skin when I'm old than some people without acne now.
I had acne and when I did, I asked my doctor if I could have retin-a to remove the scars (I thought that is what is was for) and she said come back to me in a few months, you won't need it now and I will give you a topical cream. Does it actually do what I thought it does? Because my acne has gone, I won't really need it to reduce it.
