11 months



This pic is after using tretinoin .05% for 11 months. Still breakout with 4-5 bumps a month. Been doing microdermabrasion regularly for past 3 months, which has helped with redness and scarring. Like someone else posted, I don't think scarring ever goes away completely. With my MAC primer and liquid foundation, it looks like I have flawless skin. Ah well, guess I'll have to fake it till I make it!

Jane I have followed your progress for wow over a year now I think?! (That feels so long!)

But your picture just now has inspired me to post.

You are looking great! Your scarring appears to have improved significantly. What ever your doing seems to be working.

Frida.k thank you so much, your words mean a lot. Yes, it does seem like I have been dealing with this forever sometimes, but the proof is in the pictures, I am going to beat this! Thanks again for the encouragement!

The reason I expressed surprise is that in that time I am on my second course of accutane and still fighting cystic acne! If only like you I just kept up my retin a, because it is working great guns!

It will be great to see you in another year & see even more dramatic improvement in your skin. I am so happy for you. :D

Jane,

I'm so happy to have gotten in touch with you. Thank you for all your advice. I was wondering what type of microdermabrasion you're doing? Is it at home or professional? If it's at home.. can you recommend a good yet aggressive brand that can help me combat my scarring which is similar to yours? I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

Just wanted to say the you look fabulous!!! Amazing progess. I'm currently using Atralin gel, which is tretinoin for about 1 week for only 3 days. I'm afraid of my face buring, like all the other ones did. How often to you use tretinon and did it dry you face drastically???

You skin looks a lot like mine! Everyone tells me that my scars aren't bad, and I tell them it's because I've been trying so many things to rid myself of scars. If I didn't do anything, I feel as though I wouldn't look like this. Ya know.

You look great by the way!
