If it's a skincare issue probably your dermatologist. A lot of skincare products have retinol in them so you may not need a prescription unless you have a specific skin condition that needs extra TLC.

If you want to go to a dermatologist you will have to get a referral from your family doctor to see one, at least that's what you have to do here in BC.

Your family physician can prescribe Retin-A Cream/Gel no problem. It's probably a lot quicker than getting into a dermatologist depending on your area. :)

should be able to prescribe it to you. I just asked my family Dr and she
wrote me out a scrip right away. How ever if your having big time
problems you should ask your Dr to send you to see a dermatologist.

you should speak to your GP first and then if there's a specific skincare issue they will refer you onward.
