good for you -  I too am gluten free, soy free and dairy free....haven't gone paleo yet, I am very thin and I can't afford to lose weight

you look very slim too....are you able to maintain your weight on this diet?

and good for you for doing it the hard way!!  so great when you find your answer!!!!

sadly that's becoming the exception and not the rule....personally I'd only let the doctor do it, but it's more about experience with the machines I guess

you want to make sure that they have experience before they touch you, particularly if it's going to be a deep treatment -- perhaps the doctor does those and the lighter more surface treatments are done by the nurses and assistants

BP doesn't work for everyone- but there are other things, have you seen a derm?   how old are you?...male or female?

clean up your diet, minimize processed food, clean whole foods, ditch dairy if you haven't, that's a big trigger for many, give it 30 days see if it works for you

if you are open to it the derm will give you antibiotics and likely a BP/clindamycin lotion...that may kick start things.....

is your acne cystic?  that's a whole different animal sadly...give us a little more info, and hang in there, you are among friends

it's not cystic but it's pervasive, and I get the frustration trust me...looks like it would respond well to a topical, what do you wash with and treat with am and pm?

try photo dynamic therapy - they put an acid on your face ALA and you incubate then it's activated with red and blue light....it's what they do for pre cancerous lesions....it can be very helpful in shrinking the sebaceous glands

also clean up your diet if you haven't, ditch dairy if you haven't and see what happens, it's a trigger for many

but do look into the acne PDTs, expensive but if you can swing it, that's where I would go next
