day 8-11 post PDT

Hey Guys! On day 8 after my second PDT treatment I was...STILL RED! BUT (and that's a big BUT), the redness had substantially faded from the initial point. I was still peeling, but not as heavily as the the first 2 days of peeling. I noticed that my blackheads seem to be clearing up (this was an unexpected perk of the treatment). I still had some post hyperpigmentation, but I feel certain that it will fade in time (it faded after 2 weeks after my first round with the PDT). On day 9, th

Second time around for PDT

Hey guys! Thanks for checking out my blog-I started this blog to let others know about my experience with PDT and some expectations that can come along with the treatment. First, a little history. I am in my 20s and have suffered with acne since my early teens. I have tried various antibiotics (including monocyline, doxycycline), various creams (Retin A, epiduo, duac, aczone), and accutane in 2008. The accutane definitely worked, however it took 6 months of me taking 40mg BID. This is qu
