I tried Affirm on arms and also hips for stretch marks.  Worked well. Had welts that went away after 5 days. Never had holes from it

Thanks guys! I am soo irritated that it burns and constantly itches now I can't even wash my face at all and feel acne coming back.

I did have SGA done as well, and it does work! Some spots have never come back. Some do but not as deep as what they were. 

 

It was so unfortunate because the lady originally treating my skin was very good...next therapist OMG... I have the feeling she thinks because I have very white skin that I must be able to handle high level lasers and peels :S? (Because she had much darker skin than me, and for her own treatments the settings would have to be a lot lower). So she was very aggressive. I don't think my face will ever recover from the broken capiliries. I HOPE it will recover from this burning sensation, awful! It must be 'rosacea'?

I am 25 years old so the fact I am getting acne at all is very frustrating when most of my peers don't get any at all.

Because SGA is relatively new and was invented in Australia I would say it has to undergo years of legal scrutiny etc before it can appear world wide. For example, a girl I was speaking to from Germany said they have vaccines for Urinary Tract Infections in her country! It will probably be a long long time before we have it here

The sebaceous glands still remain they are just cauterized off. There is an 80% reduction of oil in the gland from then on. Again similar to electrolysis which cauterizes a hair follicle, it's far more permanent than IPL.

Ohh on my cheek that was a huge painful pustule. And I have one underneath the skin above my eyebrow which hasn't come out.

Every single month I battle a breakout, then my skin clears up. Then it breaks out again! It's very frustrating. 

I think the treatments sound really interesting though and the SGA would be great for moderate-severe acne.

 

The red marks/scarring on my chin is also difficult to cover even with makeup. I had cysts there as a teenager!
