10 Weeks! Can you believe it. I've actually made it to week 10 of my Taz journey and I couldn't be happier at this point.
You're probably thinking: "Why did she name this blog entry '10 weeks/ I'm African American'?" I wanted to remind African Americans who seek out acne.org for answers to their acne woes that there's a faithful, ethnic person blogging about a product outside of Accutane. As an African American, I've found that many people don't have answers to our skin problems because of the levels of melanin in our skin. Sometimes it's not as simple as just treating the acne, but also the problematic hyperpigmentation that lingers for months after the pimple is gone.
Now to my 10 week assessment... This week has been awesome. No pimples and the scarring is getting better everyday. Remember, I don't have pits or dimples in my skin. I simply have surface level hyperpigmentation. So, if you want to know if Taz works on severe scarring, this may not be the blog for you. Taz does help hyperpigmentation. It is a slow process, but it does help.
There's not much to say this time around, but the fact that Taz is still working for me. It's been a long process, but definitely a successful one so far. I go to the derm next week and hopefully he'll see the same progress that I see. I'm going to ask for combination therapy for the scarring to speed up the process, but I'm thinking he'll say the same thing he said last time, "Taz will take care of the scarring in time." Finger crossed...
Until next time..
