Fourth laser acne treatment complete...

After four laser acne treatments, I am actually a bit disappointed by the results. At this time, I can neither approve or disapprove of vbeam plus smoothbeam. My face is on the brink of a full-scale breakout. If my face does not get any worse, then I would definitely recommend the treatment. However, if it gets worse, then obviously, I'm not going to recommend. At this exact moment of writing, my face is a little bit worse than it would be if I was on antibiotics. I have been of

Another session down

Where to start? My last laser acne treatment was on the 12th of June. I have been off of minocycline since the 5th only because I ran out. I have been using sodium sulfacetamide daily. I only had 3 bad pimples in the past month, and I used some retina on them. I also use vitamin e all over my face, and it definitely seems to help. I am very pleased with the results. I have one more treatment left. I do not know if it is the sodium sulfacetamide or the laser acne

Second laser acne treatment

Hey, I just completed my second session last Monday of vbeam perfecta and smoothbeam. Is the $1300 worth it so far? I really can't tell. (1300 is on the high side, but the Doctor is very reputable.) A little bit about Doctor skill: I don't think you need to get the best Doctor in your area...just not the worst. I mean, my Doctor knows how to prevent bruising...but it's not failsafe. Every now and then, some of his patients do get bruising. But, some experts say bruising helps

First laser acne treatment

Hey, The Vbeam Perfecta and Smoothbeam were used on my face. No numbing cream was applied before. It's been 3 days. I did not have any bruising. Dr. Bernstein of Ardmore, Pa, north of Philly (Philadelphia), said he would try to not bruise. He is very excellent Doctor. My only complaint is that he did not use the lasers on my neck. I asked him to use the lasers on one huge pimple on my neck, but he did not use the lasers anywhere else. Sure enough, the next day, I am getting a

New acne regimen before laser acne treatment

Hey, A little about myself: 20, male, attending Rutgers in New Brunswick. I am from New Jersey. I had acne since I was about 13. I tried a handful of products. I was on minocycline for just about 3 years, but that would only keep me 80% clear at best. Tried using benozyl peroxide face wash, benozyl peroxide cream / gel, differin, and doxcycline. Without any treatment, I get moderate to severe cystic acne. I am going to get laser acne treatment. The Doctor I will be seeing is
