  1. I am an 18 year old female who was a chronic skin picker for about 5 years. As a result of this I have been left with a face full of Red Marks and all they do is lightly scab over when I wear my foundation, but I cant help but peel this light layer of skin off all the time and then they bleed? are these wounds or something? In January I want to do something about these marks and I am wondering whether I should go with a chemical peel or a fraxel or blue light laser treatment? Keep in mind this i
  2. So I have to say I never thought I would have been a skin picker. As selfish as it probably sounds I just HATE my skin and if it were an option I'd get a face transplant, because the damage and red marks from acne and my bad habit have just made my self esteem about as low as it gets. Its not even just the marks, its the hassle of trying to cover them, them drying up, then peeling/ flaking off and or bleeding entirely. I am exhausted and I just want to learn to love myself despite this but don't
  3. I feel your pain. I think alot of the redmarks are going to be there for the rest of my life. I have recently been doing a petroleum jelly face mask at night just to soothe and help heal some of the red marks.. I don't know if its even actually truly healing anything but the downing part is always knowing I will never have clear looking skin without makeup. It's so sensitive and troublesome I just wish I could have a face transplant. How do you cope when It bothers you? I'm having a really diffi
  4. So I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my skin SUCKS. I have red marks on my ENTIRE face and pretty much hate myself at the moment... also am pretty downed at having to wear 3 layers of makeup and still look like crap. I am currently on 60 mg a day and it isnt doing anything besides drying my face out beyond belief.. plus I picked at a spot and now it looks 20 times worse than it did to begin with.. I hope this gets better? For people who have been where I have in this treatment.. does it ge

    Day 18 Accutane

    Paul, you are wonderful
  6. Ok so heres the deal, most of my skin has already improved tremendously... However I havent been using moisturizer so I should probably go get some... these peeling red marks are AWFUL in certain places... I'm hoping with time and in a few more months of treatment they'll go away? bc the skin is healing funny like wrinkly and then peeling off and being red again... does that make sense? I also still have alot of closed comedones but hopefully in time the meds will purge those too? overall textu
  7. Well as you probably predicted, nothing new has happend! Besides I have one pimple on the side of my face, I think from the meds. Is it sad that I am excited for the Initial Breakout to happen full force? Just so everything inside of my faces gets out for good and the real healing begins. Once again as a reminder, I am on 40 mg. I am not sure if my dosage will change as the months go on, we shall see. I have been using cetaphil gentle face wash, and havent yet needed the aquaphor for my lips. My
