My forehead. Used to be Bump-ville, CA but now it's totally flat. I had one pimple that came up last week after my Salicyclic Acid Peel. I zapped that sucker with my D'arsonal High Frequency and it's pretty much flat now. You can see I have some melasma still in the middle of my forehead just above my eyebrows and also lots of little acne scars. Trying to slowly fade those with my Hydroquinone Retin A (HQRA) but it dries out my skin so bad I can only use it 2 or 3 times a week. Anyone have tips for fading acne scars? I'm going to start using my Personal Microderm in a few days so hoping that might help.

Thanks Sgala3! I went balls to the walls with this med and started at 200mg / day. My PCOS symptoms were beginning to get quite severe though so it was a fitting dose. I would suggest starting smaller and building up slolwy though because I know it was a major shock to my system, and possibly had something to do with the unfortunate IB (initial breakout) that took over my face. I have been VERY slowly lowering my dose and I am now stable with few side effects at 150mg / day. I may try lowering even more, but as of now I am happy. Wishing you the best of luck! xo
