Diagnose Me? (Photos Included)

07 November 2013 - 02:42 AM

Hey everyone, quick intro, I'm new here. 33yo, Caucasian, living in Northern California. Have had oily skin and acne since like forever. In between jobs now, no health insurance, can't afford a dermatologist (and confused by the whole Healthcare.gov thing).


So based on my pics, can someone tell me what I suffer from and what can fix it?


Chemical peel?


Laser/IPL resurfacing?


Also, the white bumps on my chin, are those whiteheads? Asking because I've read that whiteheads can't be squeezed out, but I can squeeze the tips of those. I never get pimples in that area.


Thank you,

Does Microdermabrasion Help?

I'm a Caucasian male, early 30s, and just had my first facial. Took 90 minutes and cost $110. It included rubbing my face with all sorts of lotions, and a diamond-tip microdermabrasion. I took before and after pictures which you can see on my gallery or here: http://imgur.com/YQGp7pe,QLvQ13h#0


Honestly, I don't see any difference. Does anyone else? Does microdermabrasion help at all with the type of skin I have?


Thank you.
