The plunge has been taken, the Accutane on deck.
My story so far.
Acne hasn't been a lingering issue for me for most of my short life, until 7 months ago when I broke out heavily on my chin. They were just normal pimples that eventually came to a head, nothing too serious... yet. It got worse, with my chin starting to resemble the Himalayas. I sought out help, my first step was Sebaceous Gland Ablation (SGA) which aimed to eliminate problem glands. 3 treatments later, it had not worked. Money down the drain. Next, my cousins had been visiting an aesthetician which seemed to be working, so my mum forced me to go. It was the worst. Imagine just pure pimple popping for like half an hour, plus a vacuum (microdermabrasion) sucking on your face with the added spice of injections. It worked!... for a few weeks. In the school holidays soon after, I started to develop cystic acne and more weeks after that nodules. And then here I find myself with a moderately-severe case of acne and a box full of Accutane.
I'll be updating weekly!
Here are some pictures - pre-accutane.
