hi, idk if this is right section tbh but ill go with it anyways

 

heres the thing, my relatives are trying to force me to go to this procedure that is something to do with ultrasounds or something like that, but im 1. afraid 2. think its gonna be total waste of cash and time 3. im just gonna die if its long procedure 4. i just soo dont wanna,

but lady that recomends me this says its gonna fix everything etc, she is one who works there too though

 

so

Oh, I know what you mean..ultrasonic facials? Like the DermaSound? They are not that popular I guess because I haven't read any posts on them. I usually just choose high frequency because it doesn't involve peeling, and follow that with blue and red light therapy. You should ask if there are any side effects.

bumping this up to say i went through 1 course which was ~2-3 months (freaking parents n everyone forced me afterall, they r tired of my shit face too) and heres my review of it: 
 
it was a procedure once a week for 1h
 
procedure ~20 euros
 
at first they take somekinda scrape kinda thing and basically go with it all through ur skin, it feels like shaving. they basically clean dirt and oils off that way. also they cleanse ur face before that. after the scraping they apply somekinda creams
 
then next thing feels like ironing ur skin, the item theyre doing it with is round shaped and heats up. this is the ultrasound part. the waves basically get in ur skin and destroy acne bacteria
 
they also tell u to go on certain regimen which is every morning and evening cleanse with tonic and then evenings mix zinc cream + tea tree oil, apply.
(but since zinc cream literaly felt like smearing a raw grease on ur face i wasnt doing that shit. i also noticed when u use such creams more dirt stick to skin. not good. i also ditched the tea tree oil bcs i had experience with it before and i just dont like it anymore and dont feel like it works either but it might be personal..so i just stick to tonics and cleansers)
 
what happened out of all of that:
yes. it sorta helps. but it takes awhiiile. i started to break out less and less. they say ill have to come back tho, im on pause atm for 2-3 weeks.
BUT! 
its been week now since last procedure and ofc..OFC im breaking out like shit again. i felt its gonna happen, i expected it. i  knew it.
another thing if anyones gonna do this, prepare ur moisturisers bcs it dried out my skin like heck
 
they claim they cured severe case people..
 
on the side note: on superhealthy diet now as well. fruits, veggies, berries, chicken, fish and very little oil. water, green tea. raw + steamed. no dairy, no grains, no nothing. 2 weeks now. 4 days ago i guess was peek of it, so i had fresh skin, no redness. looked clearer than ever. no lie. just took thousands selfies. ~_~ pics i wasnt even ashamed to show to ppl. even was thinking of new life and whatnot, thought acne is going down finally...
 
then yesterday came and..it blew out all the old shit all over my face again! i was just are you fucking kidding me..
 
and yea, thats it :T

I had fraxel done 3 times, 800$ each treatment, and it helped by around 10% of my expectations and of what I've been told by the doc. 

Fraxel is way stronger than ultrasound, but idk what your skin looks like, so I hope it works for you.

I also hope the diet changes turn your skin into a flawless porcelain canvas, because I have not seen any results after years of healthy eating (ive been an athlete and a personal trainer).
