I am a 17-year-old girl with hormonal acne. I have tried birth control, Ortho Tri-Cylcen Lo, and I did not like the side effects of it. I gained weight and my mood swings were absolutely TERRIBLE. What sucks, my acne and my weight are two of my biggest insecurites, and the pounds were just packing on, I had to go off of the birth control, no matter how much work it was doing for my skin.
So, I am here ready to move on to my next option. I am looking at light or laser surgey, but I don't know if it is good for my kind of acne. If it is, which surgery procedure is best for hormonal acne. I have literally tried everything up to this point, and I am going crazy. I feel like giving up. My acne is so painful. It is scarring me physically and emotionally.
I really appreciate the help in advance, and if you know of any other options that may be better for the kind of acne I am experiencing, please, don't hesitate to drop off your information.
