    No, you’ll need a few more days than that. It did mine in January with Dr Rullan on a Thursday and returned back to work next the Thursday. Depending on how aggressive the treatment and how well you heal, there will be swelling and bruising for weeks, but most of it won’t be noticeable by others after the first week. The redness can be covered up somewhat by a tinted sunscreen or moisturizer without it looking like makeup. Hope that helps!

    If you require Accutane to control your acne, then it's very likely your diet isn't causing your acne and its most likely genetic. Otherwise we wouldn't need the side effects of Accutane and we would just change our diets. I know diet played very little of a role in my acne. Of course, a good diet is required for general health, but it will most likely not solve severe acne. I know for me Accutane was the only thing that made a significant difference. I remember five years ago I started dr

    Same thing for me! I started at 50 and Yasmin, moved to 75 and Yasmin, and have been on 125mg and no Yasmin for several years and each time I had a "purge" adjustment that actually took a month or up to 3. So keep a good routine that exfoliates and working on the PIH and you will get there. I have faith so much in this product, as I have been on it for 5 years and it's magical. I wish you all the best in your journey for this long term healing that you are working towards.

    @ExclusiveSet Hi there, I see lots of icepicks - scarred pores which need tca cross, some rolling scars which need many sessions of subcision with some filler, some boxcars which need rf needling and co2 laser if you need a boost or you can do fraxel 1927nm full density which will work on the large pores as well (energy devices are optional). Hyperpigmentation I would do vascular laser or picosure/picoway which is great for your skin type and makes collagen. You can finish off with a few chemica

    @Vladpredescu Hi there thanks for posting. I see your face is still breaking out. That should be a top priority to stop even if you have to do low dose Accutane. Otherwise the bacteria could be spread when other procedures are done. If your anxious and depressed over it, it's best if you see a therapist as well. Acne scars not only effect our appearance but make deep internal scars. Half the battle is dealing with the pain they have caused. You do not look like you have been mau

    Dr Steve Weiner is also a great filler in context of acne scarring. In FL. He uses Bellafill and HA fillers. He is a Plastic Surgeon and was one of the pioneers of INFINI RF.

    Finally!

    Drinking 2 cups a day of green tea (After breakfast/evening). And so far so good. My face is less oily and almost no break out so far. Thank you Allah.

    Chemical Peels to Treat Acne Scars

    Chemical peels have been a lifesaver! I used them to treat hyperpigmentation leftover from pimples and small icepick scars. I don't think this would get rid of acne. I went to a esthetician to do mine. Please please please don't buy your own and do it yourself! You are giving yourself a controlled chemical burn and if you don't know what you're doing (which you don't) you can burn your face! It's not worth saving some money. The at home peels don't work as well either so you're wasting money. Yo

    Lwilliams, I'm glad you're continuing! Your situation sounds incredibly similar to mine when I started five years ago. I had tried everything but Accutane (which I couldn't use because I didn't have insurance). So, I started The Regimen in May of that year. Over the summer my skin appeared to be gradually making progress. Then August came around and I had a bunch of severe breakouts. I was on vacation at the time and was so self-conscious. It really hurt my trip and I was beyond frustrated. Th

    Leaves skin clear, and heals redness. It's not pricey, and it works to keep you skin clear, I have had severe acne ever since I was nine, and it's finally cleared after seven years of searching for the right solution. It takes about two months for me(As I had severe acne, not moderate or light), and it my acne fade every time I use this, with warm water and a clean cotton-like towel, recommended product!
