I used to use sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 5% in an actual lotion formulation (cream based). It didn't see THAT much improvement. But then again, I used it when I first started the treatment so there was a lot of work that the prescription had to do on my face. But later on switched over to the liquid formulation and it is soooo much better. I feel that the liquid formulation is much more effective. And the liquid formulation has a slight sheer pink tone to it, so I feel that it makes my skin tone look more even. I was given tinter drops along with the lotion so i could match the lotion to my skin tone, but I chose not to use the tinter. I no longer get ANY major breakouts. No more cysts. The tiny pimples sometimes do flair up, but they're not big and red the way they used to be. And the tiny ones heal very quickly.
I have had to deal with acne for years...have been on every Rx and over the counter medicine under the sun, nothing works. Just got put on the soduim sulfacetamide/sulfur wash and topical lotion and in one day i'm already seeing a MAJOR difference. If this stuff clears my face completely, I'm going to ask my new doctor to marry me.
This under my makeup along with Differin Gel .3% were the only 2 treatments that really kept my skin clear. I eventually stopped using this thinking it didn't do much and have been on Ziana gel. However, Ziana gel is awful so I'm going back to what worked best.
+My black heads flake right off with this medicine
+suggest washing afterwards with a facewash with abrasives (light) in it...
I am using the tinted sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 5% lotion. I threw out my liquid makeup because it was clogging my pores and this tinted sulfacet works as a makeup. It covers my blemishes and red spots! Within 8 hours of my very first application in the morning, my 2 cysts were dried up and the tiny pimples had disappeared or deflated! Sulfa-based products must work very well for me. I apply it to my skin 3 times during the day. The liquid is sooo sheer and light and absorbs quickly. My skin has shown major improvement & I have used everything including differin, retin-a, benzoyl peroxide products, proactive, EVERYTHING! This is the only medicine that works for my moderate cystic acne!!!
As far as topicals go, this is one of the best I've tried. I have been taking it for about 14 weeks for my mild to moderate inflammatory acne. (I went through a round of accutane in 1995 and again in 2003, both for severe cystic acne and the acne was starting to rear it's head again last summer 2008. So, accutane was not a cure-all for me, and at 35 years old, I am so, SO tired of dealing this this. Anyway...) It is gentle and does not tear my very sensitive, dry skin up like retinoids and BP do. It is not 100% effective - even after all these weeks, I still get one or two bright red pimples a week. They heal within two to three days, but this has not been the magical cure-all for me. Still, I dread the day it stops being as effective. I'm already looking forward to the next treatment option because I know it's only a matter of time...until then, I'm pretty happy with this treatment. I recommend it to anyone, especially to those who have very sensitive skin like me.
im not sure where to go with this product but it seems to be helping,i recomend using a VERY mild cleanser ex ceptophil,neturogen oil free ance wash my dermotoligist gave me a cleanser he produces, my mom bought it not me so im not sure how much it cost.
I can only say that this is an amazing product that works for me. and I highly recommended.
it works, really...you just need a good moisturizer plus the patience to wait for the big cysts to begone.sometimes itchy too. how ever, small zits dry fast, however, it leaves a black/dark brown scar....
BUY IT! It's worth it. It works best with clindamycin phosphate I found. Put the clindamycin phosphate on in the morning, wait a little..then put on the sodium sulfacetamide. Same for before bed. It's amazing.
