~ 18 Months

Underwent pixel treatmet 3 two weeks ago; I must say my scars have improved dramatically. I no longer fear sunlight or fluorescent lighting. I may opt for a fourth treatment simply because my skin is far from perfect...we'll see... As far as acne...what acne?? I rarely get a bump nowadays. Used to still get small pustules on chin/jaw around that time of month, though those have stopped now that I'm using TRIA's Skin Clarifying System (http://www.triabeauty.com/info/the-tria-skin-clarifying-

One Year

Wow! Can't believe I've been on the medication for a full year. I certainly do not struggle with cysts anymore. And my skin is "normal" as opposed to the oil slick I was used to. Hair is less greasy too. And I have not gained back any of the ~ 15 pounds I've lost since starting the meds (could stand to gain a few) - though I'm no longer losing. My skin is far from flawless, however. I continue to struggle with the strange red spots on my cheeks and nose - which leads me to believe I may ha

Month 9.25

No changes to report. Medication is working fine. I continue to get the quick-fading, mysterious red spots on my cheeks - though not worth stressing...

I was red all day yesterday. Today, I look pretty much normal, other than the faint grid that seems to be painted on. I hope to start peeling soo

Month 8

I continue to see improvements in my skin @ 50mg twice/day. As mentioned in last month's entry, I still get these very strange red spots on my cheeks (they are gone after a day)...I'm wondering if it's heat related or something?? from my workouts?? Anyway, I'm just glad they don't linger... My regimen has not changed other than the addition of jojoba oil. Because my skin has become soo dry, I add 3 drops to my moisturizer. Wow! It's been a God send! I also add 6 drops to my damp, freshly wa

Month 7

Mercy! I didn't realize how long it's been since I've posted! Well, my skin has become wonderfully clear in these last few months. I do still break out with small red bumps - mainly on the apples of my cheeks and around my nose, though they are usually gone within 24 hours. Of course, I still have much scarring to deal with - so I won't ever feel completely clear until I can no longer see scars...MUST BE PATIENT. My skin has become quite dry on this medication so I've had to ditch the medic
