Hello everyone on Acne.org, I never thought I would end up posting on here but I’m at a dead end with my skin and it’s starting to make everything else harder in my life. 

I’m 20 and I’ve had acne for 2 years now and just finished a 1 year course of accurate. In the photos you can see my skin 2 weeks post accutane and one in direct lighting.

I don’t know what to do and at this point I feel like I’ll always feel demented, I just need some advice on what I should do.

@JShreddit Thank you for your private PM, I will try to help you here on your post.

You have more than PIE or redness going on. I will give you a few solutions for the other scars. At 20 you should heal well. Everything below is optional, you don't have to spend a fortune. Start with Cannula subcision. Some can only afford 1-2 times a year and that's ok. you can do the at-home treatments cheaply. V-beam for your redness is also quite cheap. This will give you a major improvement and work on that redness. Lasers are the most expensive and can be done last if needed. 

You have PIE (redness), icepicks, box cars, and some rolling atrophy. 

Prioritize above what matters most to you. Possibly it's only the PIE and V-beam. 

** Please Note I offer to acne scar suffers a "more" "customized" (private) consultation than the above general advice. Analysis, answering questions, ongoing support by Private Messaging. Feel free to message me there. Be patient as I can get over 100+ of the worst acne scar cases to help, it "may" take me up to 48 hours to respond.

Checkout the main scar treatments sub, find the FAQ pinned on top there, goto the bottom, there are Dr's or call around and ask who does cannula subcision or nokor subcision (needle type) to dermatologists and or plastic surgeons, consult a few before you decide who you like, even if you have to pay as treatment is expensive, better like them. Ask how many subcisions they do a month and if they treat your skin type. If they just do laser run they will just blast you and not solve your issue.
