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! 

In Topic: Which Birth Control Pill Have You Had Success With?

I took Yasmin but I am far too sensitive to it, also it has a synthetic progesterone that is SUPPOSED to work as a diuretic but i'll tell you it didn't work for me because I had severe water retention!! No acne though haha. I stopped taking it in the end because I was an emotional b*tch and had IBS symptoms on it.


I am taking Loette now and am happy because my skin really is clearing up :). Some water retention but no way near as bad. It has half the estrogen (of yasmin)

sorry lol then definitely don't take the birth control pill :)


Persevere with the accutane, did the derm say it takes a long time? Have you tried hot compresses for the cyst?

but the cyst will leave a mark regardless, the longer you leave it there the worse it may become.Try the shot..Surely your derm can give you some topicals to help with pigmentation like glycolic acid.


I know accutane can make acne worse before it gets better. 4 months is a long time. Are you also on hormonal birth control pill?
