I'm 25 and have tried nearly everything and I still have acne....

 

I don't care if the treatment is $40,000 I will spend that much to rid of this acne...

 

I don't care if there was a treatment where the side effects were catastrophic.. even if there was a slight chance of death... if there's a chance it could cure this acne, I'd take it in a heart beat.

 

Has anyone else felt this way? It's the most terrible thing ever.. I'd almost rather have cancer.

 

It's my life-long goal to get rid of my acne... that's all I want in life. Does anyone know anything else I can try? Even if it's risky or expensive?

 

The only surgery I've tried is ISOLAZ laser surgery and it didn't work.
