in my opinion i havent had any natural treatments work and lets just say i have tried pretty much everything you can think of. the toner should help but i would only use it in the evening after you have washed your face and then once it dries apply your moisturizer unless you use bp or anything like that. just go slow with it because it can be drying. you can also try the aha on this site but its strong so you really should only use it 2-3 times a week at first until your skin gets used to it. good luck :)

i dont think you will get clear on that dose. i had to take 200mg a day to get clear and even then i still got at least 1 cyst a month but at that the time it was way better than what i was dealing with.

your face looks really good! for the comedones i use proactiv glycolic acid toner but you can use any toner like that. it should clear those out pretty quickly.  i dont see any scars though and your skin tone is good so dont be too hard on yourself. i would love to have your skin ;)

usually it takes about 2 weeks or so but you arent on a high enough dose. when i took doxy for a few years i took 100mg twice a day. 50mg a day is a pretty low dose. since you are on 50mg you shouldnt develop any sort of resistance or have issues but you can take probiotics if you are worried. just make sure you dont take both things at once or they will cancel each other out.
good luck!

In Topic: Is A Patch Test Necessary For Co2 Laser?

I've had a microlaser peel done with the erbium yag and ipl at same time and it worked really well for pigmentation and just overall brightening of my complexion but i've had just as good of results with ipl only. Ipl is not laser so i would try that first if you want quick results with pretty much no downtime. Peels do work if you go deep enough but the peeling part sucks. Post a pic so we can help you. I just hate to see people rushing into laser and then going through all that healing to be devastated when the skin goes back to how it was before. If you have the right type of indented scarring I do believe subcision and filler is the way to go.
