So far, I've done 3 Dermapen treatments. 1 in the office, and 2 at home after I bought my own pen. I'm not sure if it has done anything yet. However, it is a great exfoliant because like I mentioned, you get a lot a dry skin to rub off after a couple days.

I had my first Dermapen treatment almost 2 weeks ago. It was not that painful since they used numbing gel. It was pretty expensive at $300 per treatment, so I'm not sure I'll continue on. http://cdn.acne.org/...8158_383747.png

 

It looked like a sun burn for a couple days. Maybe 1 week after, I needed serious exfoliation. There was surprisingly a lot of dry skin from this. At almost 2 weeks after, it has healed. My pock marks have not magically gone away, but I do feel like the red acne marks left behind are now dimished. My left side looks great. Could be the lighting in my bathroom though.

I stopped the Likas soap. I had used it a couple times to take my makeup off and soon after, my face was bright red like the old days. Ouch. It died down once I went back to Bioderna even though I'm pretty sure I can see the old, little clogged pores coming back. Maybe I should invest in some medicated cream for that area... but formulated for black heads? I don't know.

I am back to using Likas Papaya soap. I used that years ago, but stopped because it was too drying. I'm tired of using Bioderrma to take my makeup off because it is probably the reason why I kept getting those clogged pores.

June has been a bad month for my skin. I started getting a TON of little clogged pores on my chin which I, of course, picked at and would always end up with wounds. -Sigh-. I always believed that if I get the plug out, it'll totally help! No, it always ended up a mess. They aren't puss-filled zits or anything. I have to assume it is from the sea buck thorn oil because I made sure to stop it this month. I swear, the clogged pores came out of nowhere. I also tried switching to cotton pads with exfoliating beads on them, so maybe it'll get the makeup off more, if that's the reason why I have clogged pores.

 

I guess I have a skin picking addiction.. I am forcing myself to not pick even if I believe popping them will make my skin more level.
