Question for Maya or anyone else!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, a newbie from Australia here. I must say I love the site and the fact that everyone is really supportive and trying to help each other with advice.

I have read alot of the posts and thought that I would direct the questions to you Maya, as you always seem to offer great advice.

I am presently on Roaccutane and was wondering if the "Taping method" I have heard about would be too harsh for me. Also, I have heard something called Mandelic Acid mentioned....what is it and is it available in Australia?

Thanks in advance! smile.gif

I'm sorry, but none of the methods you have mentioned would be suitable whilst on Roaccutane - you would risk scarring.

The only think you could try for red marks is aloe vera.. but it can be drying on the face .. so maybe that's not too good if your skin is really dry.

A good moisteriser like emu oil www.skinbio.com could help - it is anti-inflammatory and provised superior moisterising.

Stick around, when you are off your medication, you can try some procedures and topicals after 6 months of finishing.
