Went to Derm....

Recommended Posts

So i went to the derm today and i was pretty excited about it cause the topicals are finaly starting to kick in, i just have the red marks left over. those were starting to fade a little after i came back from vacation and had som sun in me. i know a lot of people say sun doesnt help, but it does for me...it dries everything out and blends the color. Anywayyyyy...i go there and im prepared to hear that im doing better...blah blah blah....then she whips out the metal thingy and unclogs some of my pores and now im all swellled and REDDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....and she injected to little spots....im so down now...i havent been wearing makeup to school..and am just waiting for the red marks to go away..but no biggrin.gif ...now im bloody and redder...so tell me...if anyone has had this done before....DOES THE REDDNESS GO AWAY OVER NIGHT?

^not overnight...if the acne had some blood on it it would be darker than your skin for a few weeks...if it's just whitehead the discoloration would fade quickly.

wow my derm doesn't even touch my face when i have cysts. She tells me to leave them alone. Well... speaking from experience I just recently a small breakout on my jawline from switching birth controls. They bled a litle but I held a tissue to them. They crusted over like a small scab which i covered with makeup. The small ones stayed about... 3 days I would say. The rest were gone by day 4. It sucks for the first day or two becuase they're bright red, but if you let them heal and dont pick at it they'll heal without a spot.
