  1. Just to update. It has been 11 months and nothing has changed. The filler has not gone down at all. Although the indent I was concerned with is filled, I still have the lump and it emphasized some scarring above that as well (that didn't develop - it was like that right away). Life is sort of the same as before - good days and bad days. Overall I regret this and am wondering if I'm looking at years and years like this...
  2. Hi Michi31, I just had submission with Dr Rapaort.  Did you haven improvement?  How long was your downtime?  I'm so depressed, I'm sure this was a mistake!  I hope I don't have a super long recovery, but I guess its too late now LOL!

  3. I had juvederm ultra plus injected 3 weeks ago to rolling scars/cortisone atrophy on the side of my chin. The good news is it filled. The bad news is there is a large lump over the area. I have my follow up in 3 days and am torn whether to have it injected. I'd like it taken down but not all the way. From what I've read not only is this hard to do but there are risks of dissolving your own skin. I'm really not sure and obsessing constantly. Any advice?
  4. No I've never received those treatments and I have oily skin. It's not devastating because it's only on the side of my forehead and isn't totally visible unless really examining. I'm just glad I tested it out because now I know how my skin reacts.
  5. I dermarolled one side of my forehead with a .5mm roller probably 5 months ago. I swear it left little pin pricks and/or made pores more prominent. When compared to the other side of my forehead in all lighting it looks worse. I should have examined closer prior to rolling, but this seems like an odd thing to have been preexisting. I wonder if I would be one of those who would get pin holes from fraxel as well - glad i haven't tried that.
  6. Yup, it's Category B topical and it's on all the safe lists. Congrats and glad pregnancy is helping your acne!
  7. Hey lady! I am 33 and 6 weeks pregnant also! (Well, I'll be 7 weeks tomorrow). So cool. With my daughter I broke out horribly but this pregnancy has been a lot better. I don't know why that is but I had cleared up a lot beforehand and I think that helped. I had some mild breakouts the other day but the erythromicin gel seemed to help. Have you had an ultrasound yet? My first one is tomorrow - I'm so nervous.
  8. Ugh I am so sorry for you and your daughter. I can only imagine the stress of trying to take her pain away. As an acne sufferer and mother of a young daughter I totally feel for you. I do want to say that what Green Gables said is true - progestin only is the worst kind of b.c. for acne. Not only that, but you may want to research birth control pills and osteoporosis. Especially in low estrogen (hers is no estrogen) pills, when taken for long periods of time in young girls, it actually lowers bo
  9. Ugh derms are the worst. That's awful how he treated you. What Tracy said is absolutely correct and you should find a doctor who will prescribe you Spiro ASAP.
  10. Congrats! So just curious you don't plan on having kids?
  11. If you google it you will find that studies have been done on rats, and that Spiro did in fact negatively affect the development of the male organs. And there have been impacts on female rats too. You really don't want to mess with a hormone blocker when you're pregnant.
  12. That is so crazy that this didn't happen in your first pregnancy. I do think our receptors change over time, but I can't figure it out. Keflex is cephalexin which is an antibiotic. Category B, so there has been no evidence in animals or people of causing problems to fetuses (but it can't be ruled out - almost nothing is Category A). The only side effect I got was a yeast infection, which I get any time I'm ever on antibiotics. The only thing that concerns me though is that there is more evidence
  13. I feel you. I had my acne get much worse when I was pregnant as well. Your hormones are raging and there's not much you can really do. The only thing that worked was going on Keflex - Category B antibiotic. I was on it 3 times for 4 weeks each. My daughter is 2 and absolutely fine. I was getting scarring acne, and now live with scars for the rest of my life, so for me it was what I had to do. I was on finacea and clyndimicin and they did nothing. I tried tea tree oil and mario badescu products.
  14. I am only 33 but am already in peri-menopause. Spiro has worked for me. You should try it.
  15. Yes it sucks. I don't mind taking a pill every day but I did want another child, and cannot have one while on the medication. Do you guys plan on not having kids? Or just going off the meds when you do?
