I discovered this new treatment for acne! I am not sure if it is just a quick fix, or if it will completely get rid of everything for good! At many tanning beds they are offering red light therapy! It's actually amazing because it only takes 20 minutes and your zits are almost going away!
You have to go multiple times for it to look 100% better, and its kind of expensive. I am lucky to have parents that are willing to help me out financially with my skin problems because they know how much I am struggling with my skin. I probably spent over $300 on it. But I feel like it was worth it! My skin looks so much better and I am going to keep going! It really helps with scarring too!!! It only dries out the pimples and the rest of my dry skin completely healed! I highly reccomend doing it! But not as your only regimen.... becuase its not getting to the root of the problem of where your acne is coming from. So stick with your diet and regimen as well!
So I have tried everything in the book (except accutane) for getting rid of my acne, and nothing has completely helped. There is one thing that I have not tried yet and that is QUITTING SMOKING. I am addicted to smoking but have been cutting back a lot recently. I plan on quitting completely when I get back from vacation and see what happens!
This is what I plan on doing:
-taking Yaz BC for hormones and acne
-getting off doxycycline
-sticking to my regimen
-sticking to my diet
-and red light therapy
*also I am going to see this esthetician who has helped my friend get rid of her acne!
and if that doesn't help then I GIVE UP haha
I will update when I get back from vacation on how my skin reacts with the beach! :/
Wish me luck!
P.S. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND RED LIGHT THERAPY so you don't have to walk around feeling so awful about yourself. It is almost a miracle.
