Derm appointment last Friday. I've been going to that clinic for almost 2 years, and this was the first time I had my appointment with the head derm, hah. Even though he'd never seen me before, he still said "Seems your skin is doing a lot better!", which is actually a bit true. I'm still getting pimples here and there, but haven't had any cysts in a long while. And when I compare my skin to the photos I took last month, it does look like my hyperpigmentation is fading.
I wanted to mention to him that I want to try a new medication, but I want to wait until my next appointment, since on the 30th I have an ophthalmologist appointment where my doc will let me know if I'm finally done with Diamox.
Got my usually chemical peel (I think we moved up to 60%). Derm said that I didn't look like I needed any cortisone shots, but that I could get some scar injections. I've had this small atrophic scar on my forehead for the past few months, and I guess I have some "ice pick" scars around my cheekbones, so I got the injections and I can't tell if it did anything for the ice pick scars but looking at scar on my forehead and yeah I can definitely see it doesn't look as deep!
I'd run out of Epiduo, so he gave me a new prescription and sent me on my way. But sadly once again, my insurance doesn't cover it, so I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow to make a call and see if there's anything they can do.
And that's about it..
Really looking forward to Fall so I can stop waking up with such an oily face!!
