Hope to hear from you guys soon I before my acne gets really bad.

It's perscribed, FREE FOR ME, <3 canada.

But are you insured is the question?

Well what do you mean if I am insured in this question?

I been doing some research on several products like

accutane, Acnezine and Acnefree and I really don't know which one to try out. Acnezine and Acnefree can be bought online. I need a prescription to buy accutane and that's the only thing that is stopping me right now. Have you guys tried out Acnezine or Acnefree before?

Acnezine and Acnefree is BS. Don't even bother.

Go to the doc's and get a perscription for your acne for Accutane.

I am 16 years old.. My face was moderatly bad.. not nearly as bad as many people on this site however. I developed an immunity to mediacation. Then I went on Accutane. I have been acne free for 3 years, with only 10 pimples in that time ever occuring on my face..

The problem with accutane is not how much you are willing to pay, but how much you are willing to endure physically.

Accutane can cause loss of vision, hearing, nosebleeds, joint atrophy, loss of hair, it can turn teeth yellow,...

Don't be too scared, since most of this is not very likely, but the mere possibility of this stuff happening keeps me from ever taking accutane.

Try the CSR, probably the best thing you can do.

Yeah I heard accutane can cause problems sometimes. That's why I don't like the idea of buying it.

Combination blue (415 nm) and red (633 nm) LED phototherapy in the treatment of mild to severe acne vulgaris.Goldberg DJ, Russell BA.

Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York/New Jersey, and Department of Dermatology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10022, USA. [email protected]

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Acne vulgaris represents both a challenge to the treating dermatologist and a major concern for the patient. Conventional treatments have proved inconsistent with often unacceptable side effects and high rates of recurrence. Non-thermal, non-laser, phototherapy for acne with a combination of blue and red light has recently attracted attention. The present study was designed to assess the efficacy of this combination phototherapy. METHODS: Twenty-four subjects, Fitzpatrick skin types II-V, with mild to severe symmetric facial acne vulgaris were recruited for the study. Subjects were well matched at baseline in terms of both age and duration of acne. Subjects were treated over eight sessions, two per week 3 days apart, alternating between 415 nm blue light (20 minutes/session, 48 J/cm2) and 633 nm red light (20 minutes/session, 96 J/cm2) from a light-emitting diode (LED)-based therapy system. Patients received a mild microdermabrasion before each session. Acne was assessed at baseline and at weeks 2, 4, 8 and 12. RESULTS: Twenty-two patients completed the trial. A mean reduction in lesion count was observed at all follow-up points. At the 4-week follow-up, the mean lesion count reduction was significant at 46% (p=0.001). At the 12-week follow-up, the mean lesion count reduction was also significant at 81% (p=0.001). Patient and dermatologist assessments were similar. Severe acne showed a marginally better response than mild acne. Side effects were minimal and transitory. Comedones did not respond as well as inflammatory lesions. CONCLUSIONS: Combination blue and red LED therapy appears to have excellent potential in the treatment of mild to severe acne. Treatment appears to be both pain- and side effect-free.

Light-emitting diode 415 nm in the treatment of inflammatory acne: an open-label, multicentric, pilot investigation.Tremblay JF, Sire DJ, Lowe NJ, Moy RL.

UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

BACKGROUND: The management of acne remains a challenge, with current therapies linked to significant side effects and patient non-compliance. Phototherapy using blue light has been proven in the treatment of acne vulgaris and offers the clinician an effective alternative. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of narrowband light-emitting diode (LED) blue light in the reduction of inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions in patients with mild to moderate acne and to evaluate patient tolerance of the therapy. METHODS: Forty-five patients were treated with high-intensity pure blue light, 415 nm and 48 J/cm2, receiving two treatments of 20 minutes per week for a period of 4-8 weeks. Clinical assessment was performed at baseline, and 2, 4 and 8 weeks after treatment. A patient's therapeutic response was measured using a global improvement scoring system. RESULTS: The mean improvement score was 3.14 at 4 weeks and 2.90 at 8 weeks. Nine patients experienced complete clearing at 8 weeks. The treatment was well tolerated, with 50% of patients highly satisfied with the treatment. CONCLUSION: This open-label study suggests the therapeutic efficacy of high-intensity LED pure blue light in the treatment of acne vulgaris with no reported side effects.

Accutane turns your teeth yellow? Are you sure you are not mixing up side effects with the tetracyclines?

Aspirin can cause severe stomach ulcers...Tylenol can cause liver damage...Antibiotics can cause a severe allergic reaction where you literally lose all your skin...What is your point? How much are you willing to risk when you take aspirin long term to prevent heart attacks?
