What should I have done? (pics included)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I am going to see a doctor about getting a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or laser treatment done. it's basically a consultation. i was wondering if any of you had problems like these pictures and what worked or didn't work for you.

Hmmm, my face is kinda the same, only worse than that! I’ve been using an AHA lotion which has helped a couple of the older marks I had shrink and fade a little, but nothing drastic. I went to see a skin specialist and he recommended microdermabrasion so I’m having that done next week. I really hope it works

looks like you got redness but your skin is still smooth. i would say do the laser, chemical peel would be too harse and i dont think microdermabrasion does much for redness. v-beam or IPL is prolly you best bet.

MD formulations glycolic acid facial wash 12 per cent should get rid of that! Worked for me!

mine were worse than that after I did the regimen.

If you are a woman, mineral makeup powder would cover it ok

My skin is just like yours. Little active acne but a great deal of red flushing. The redness is not really from an accumulation of red marks but from I-dont-know-what.

It seems like flushing always comes with some acne, but not always (spotty acne is one).

I'm looking for a good nighttime moisturizer that also helps with redness. Anyone?

Yeah, my skin is pretty much all smooth and you can't see most of that with makeup on. Thanks for the suggestions! My consultation isn't until Feb. 25th but I'll be sure to post pictures of any results I have.

sounds similiar to what my skin is like. if u find anything good let me know :D, what do u use for a moisterizer during the day, right now im using a cetaphil moisterizer but when i hate the oily look to it, even when i just use a little it looks like my face is glowing or something

I know it's probably bad..but I don't use moisturizer. I have been using Tretinoin since Christmas and it cleared up most of my active acne. My doc said I shouldn't use anything but the Tretinoin and a gentle face wash. My skin isn't dry or anything though.
