It's totally right what they say about people with acne. When everything seems to be going well, you won't see them posting much anymore. Well, coz they are not obsessed with their zits anymore!
It's been more than a year since I last posted. I love the effect the Iso had on my skin and yes, my hair. I had stick straight and very well-behaved hair while on it. I told my derm about this and she found it weird as none of her patients experienced the same thing. Anyway, I think I stopped taking it around mid year last year, maybe around June or July. I forgot. My skin was impeccable by the around end of 2nd month, although I did still get one or 2 bumps once a month. But they never reached the point of getting cystic which was awesome.
My skin was pretty much clear a few months after that. Well, to be fair, it was clear enough that I didn't need injections for more than 1 pimple until around probably February this year, 2009. So considering I stopped around June or July, the Iso worked inside my system for about 7 months -- I did take a capsule or 2 each time I had a huge zit even after the treatment phase, to the dismay of my derm
And now, it's been more than a year since I stopped the Iso, and the zits are back. They are not as worse but they are bad. I have them near my mouth, basically, on the lower half of my face. I've been pricking them coz I hate seeing them bad me! But each time I pop one, another one appears in about a day or two, so imagine my anxiety.
So finally, I went to the derm last Saturday. I'm currently living far from my hometown, so I have a different derm. [i love my old derm and wouldn't trade her for anyone else if I had a choice ] I told my new derm way before, the history of my beautiful face and I've also told her before that I am not interested in any treatment anymore and I just need my zits injected
So when I went back to her last Saturday, she was very happy to learn that I admitted that I needed help. However, I think she was too ecstatic and started prescribing me all sorts of products which was a bit too overwhelming for me. Good thing I didn't bring much cash so I only ended up buying the soap lol. Well, as mentioned earlier, I am having problems with the lower half of my face and I needed injections. When I counted the zits that needed to be injected, it was about 9 or 10 in all -- yes, I have that much . But she got injection-happy and injected (based on the payment) a little over 20 zits. Some of which I never knew existed and some of which I knew where already flat coz I just pricked them 2 days before. And what's more, she wasn't even remotely done! I was the one who told her "enough", coz my face was hurting like hell. She gave me a discount though, but heck, some of the zits were not even meant to be injected!
So anyway, she also prescribed f2f capsule, which was pretty expensive, just a tad cheaper than my Iso. I haven't bought it yet coz as I said, I didn't bring much cash and she doesn't take plastic [my old derm accepts plastic, I miss her ]. Has anyone tried f2f? How is it?
And yeah, I still love the injections coz they make my zits disappear ever so quickly! If only there's a much less painful option..
