Day 14 (Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross)



So I finally met Dr. Ngai. It was actually very satisfying visit.

I got every active acnes extracted by this device that makes some weird sound. I think over 30 acnes got extracted... :smileys_n_people_42:

Dr. Ngai recommended me to continue take 10mg / everyday telling me initial break out happens regardless and it will be settled within 1-2 months. So I guess I will taking 10mg/ every other day and maybe increase it to everyday later on. 

Dr. Ngai also spot treated me with 40% and 80% of TCA. I was expecting that the white scrab from TCA would at least stay on my face for few days but actually they were gone within one hour. They are rather dark brownish or grey now. 

Dr. Ngai said that subcision won't do much for my scars, so I am planning to do 3-5 sessions of TCA Cross and then 1-3 sessions of INTRAcel RF + TCA Cross later on. When acnes are under control I plan to start treating my scars right away.

I guess all can do now is to just wait at least one month to see how I react / heal to TCA Cross and low dose Accutane :smileys_n_people_24:..

Yellow Circled = 80% TCA
Red Circled = 40% TCA
