Over two years post accutane



I have really just stopped believing that any product or procedure will make my scarring heal faster. I stopped washing my face a few weeks ago, I don't see any difference. But then again I don't really get acne anymore it's just my scarring. The only product that I apply to my face is a light cetaphil moisturizer after I get out of the shower. I also steam my face once a week. I don't put my face to close to the water though. Although it doesn't hurt my face, I'm still afraid that it might damage my skin. Scarring on the right side is still bad. The left is not as bad. Over time I can tell it has healed. As long as I don't pester it, it will heal. I've done reading and simply put skin cells regenerate over time. My dermatologist says they are just acne scars and there is not denting or anything like that so eventually my skin should be back to normal right? I guess I will just have to wait and see.

I think I might start updating this blog more often. Or maybe I shouldn't. Thinking about my scars to much may prove to be detrimental. Who knows? I think I have suffered enough emotional pain that my pain tolerance should be set pretty high. I wonder if anybody reads my blog anymore. I have fifteen thousand views but over the course of what? Three years? Well those of you who are actually reading this I would really weight the pros and cons of taking accutane. I know my personality has changed dramatically. But then again I was taking a pretty high dosage of it. Do I regret taking it? Probably not. I wouldn't be who I am today if I hadn't taken it. I would just do certain things different while I was on it thats for damn sure. Ugh. Well I guess that's all I have to say, until next time.
