Hi all! I have finally started to begin documenting my acne progress because recently my derm changed up some things in my treatment. Today is my first day retin a at night, along with aczone during the day. Before today, i had been on a aczone and ziana (aczone am, ziana pm) regimen for 3 months. During those 3 months my acne became significantly better but also had its ups and downs. My derm put me on retin a because I started to get tiny little bumps in the center of my forehead and chin. Why? I have no idea I guess acne has a mind of its own. I also recently started BC, but I'm really not sure if that's the cause or not. Anyways, I would be so grateful to hear about other people's experiences with aczone and retin a, so please comment
I'm too lazy to take pictures of my face right now so I'll give you a general idea of my skin. Currently I have a weird cluster of 4/5 small bumps smack dab in the middle of my forehead, 2 medium sized pimples on my chin, a few scattered pimples around my cheeks, and some veeeery light scarring on the sides of my face (they faded a ton thanks to ziana).
I will probably update my progress weekly if not every 3-4 days, hopefully with pictures.
Thanks, and good luck to anyone starting this regimen or a new one!
