  1. Thanks Randall! Came back to update further I suppose. It's been 10 months since I chose to go on DKR. I cleared up in March, and am clear now. I have like three spots that have not perfectly healed yet, and by that I mean 100%, they're about 95% healed and really aren't distinguishable from my clear tones. DKR is a life-saver. Given my skin is still so oily though, I don't think I can come off of the DKR anytime soon. It's amazing how oily my face is yet I don't break out at al
  2. Well, for many yes, but for many No. I am 29 and I know I would be getting acne if it werent for the regimen. (I got clear in three months because of the regimen...but suffered from acne from 13-28).
  3. DAY 213 Acne has been gone for a long time and the scars have healed basically 95%. Too lazy to post the blog. This treatment has been miraculous, I mean, look how uneventful this blog is. Probably not updating any further but I'll be glad to answer any questions! Good luck to all.
  4. DAY 135 Acne has been completely gone since about Day 90 or so. Since then, my old scars have been just healing. Quite alarming though, the scars are healing at a much slower rate than they should. Perhaps it's the BP, but the old marks on my side cheeks still remain somewhat. Other than that however, I have not had a breakout since the beginning of March. The regimen has been worth every penny and more. Although I've ruined a couple of expensive shirts due to BP, the nice skin has b
  5. Not melanoma. I've had this for at least five six years so I doubt its cancerous. Sunspots though, looks like that's it. Google images look like what I have..the weird thing is though, i never get ajy sun...hm. How did your parents get rid of theirs? How did your parents get rid of it?
  6. I've had this spot next to my eyebrows for at least like 6 years now. It's always bothered me somewhat but never seriously did. It's not acne, Any tips would be great, thanks!
  7. Hello all, The regimen has worked fairly well so far for me. I am on week 6 now and is in much better shape than week 1. However, one thing I've noticed is that I've gotten tanner. Although I am outside minimally and don't get much sun at all, I've just become more tan. (and people around me tell me the same). I personally like a light complexion and would like to ask you guys if you do anything to prevent getting tanned while on the regimen. I've been afraid to use a sunblock in fear o
  8. DAY 10. Jojoba saved my life. I have ZERO flakiness and my redness is minimal (though it is definitely still there). I've had small breakouts since. No new cysts. First time in a while I managed to have 2 weeks straight without a cyst. Forehead had two new zits. Nothing to really bring me down. After all, I've been dealing with cysts all my life, zits don't do anything to me. I also changed shaving blades. I bought Gillette Trac II as advised but while it took 2 days of getting here
  9. have you tried using jojoba oil? I had crazy flakiness from about the 3rd day on the regimen. Then I went jojoba and I am now seeing ZERO dryness. I know it feels counter-intuitive to throw oil on our faces....but man, this works great.
  10. Hello all, I am on day 12 on the regimen. Since then, I've been seeing great success. Starting day 5, I began using jojoba oil because the flakiness was getting out of control. Now, with jojoba oil and following the regimen, I am seeing awesome results. Now. Because I was in a "hurry" to get the regimen to work, I somewhat went overboard with the amount of BP usage in the first week. For 5 of the first 7 days, I applied bp TWICE a day my full top 3rd of the index finger's worth. The oth
  11. Good luck Thomas ! Your acne has definitely subsided some past four weeks.
  12. 1. Acne History (skip if you aren't interested!) Since turning 13, I've had acne all my life. During those early teenage years, I didn't think much of it. The problem areas consisted of Forehead (severe) and the nose area (moderate). Using the OTC "nature's cure tablets," I managed to clear up from about 17. I had a one or two small odd spots around my mouth area due to shaving, but acne was largely an irrelevant part of my life from 17-20. Then @ 20, after an event that I guess flipp
  13. Perhaps I should have responded to this post rather than the original poster. I should have read more than just the original post (doh!). 1. everyone on accutane is aware of what they are taking. we are essentially poisoning ourselves on purpose to cure our acne. the common side effects are short term, and last a little over the length of the course. the much rarer, more serious side effects, or just that... much rarer. [Emphasis mine] Are you sure? What is the average age of those being recomme
  14. While I do think the original poster was rather tasteless for starting a post in this fashion - especially when there's a PINNED negative accutane posts thread - I think you're wrong about an obscene amount of misinformation that's dominating the topic of accutane. On the contrary, I believe it's exactly the other way around. Because the success stories are SO powerful to the minds of the incredibly DESPERATE acne sufferers, it's the success stories of accutane "recommenders" like yourselves tha
  15. So basically In the first week 1. DO wash your face twice a day, and moisturize. 2. Only apply BP once a day. If you feel up to it, apply small amounts twice a day. 3. If you choose to apply BP once a day, then be sure to wash it off. Hence, for 12 hours of the day, I should have no BP on my face IF i choose to apply it once a day right?
  16. Obviously we are supposed to leave it on but if we are on week 1 do I not wash my face after working in the bp in the morning before I go to bed? Odd we only wash our face once a day Then.. So, To sum it up, I followed the steps 1-2-3 this morning. I'm on my first week. Do I leave it on and go to sleep?
  17. Hello Oil Girl, thanks for your response. Eye dryness is MUCH better than it was while I was on tane, but they're still very dry, but it's pretty manageable and this isn't what I'm worried about. I'm just worried about the dryness of the hands, I had dryness on the back of my hands while i was on tane which I applied creams for (Rx) but now its the fingers looking like I came out of a shower, all fishy looking, and what not. I've so far tried moisturizers for my hand, they don't seem to ha
  18. Wow, some of the experiences are quite traumatic, my story is going to be weak but here it is. Throughout middle school I had what I'd call the high level of moderate acne, just short of severe, but pretty high level on moderate, but my acne cleared by the time I was 17 and I never thought twice about it. Then suddenly, my hormones went completely out of wack @ age twenty, I know what experience caused it, but I won't go into the details because of the under-aged audience here, most will k
  19. Hello all, I was on accutane for 2 months @ 60 mg a day, while I was 21 years old. I decided to stop taking the drug because of the side effects, I was experiencing severely dry eyes and it got to a point where I just felt compelled to quit on the program. Hence I quit acctuane in March 2006 (started January 2006, took total of 60 doses for two months) Odd thing is, it cleared up acne very well, although I get spots here and there, I don't get cystic acne anymore and the acne I get now are v
  20. i've read the directions over and over again but im not quite understanding exactly how to perform these exercises. Are there any videos of these? those would greatly help. if not, do you think you can post what you do as far as your exercises go? im just so confused after reading this over many times.
  21. So I used to have severe acne at age 21, hence, I took accutane for two months and it was drying the life out of me and quit the program. im 23 1/2 now, two years fully removed from accutane, and the facial redness, which is supposed to be a temporary side-effect from accutane, never left me. Yeah, the degree of it has cooled down tremendously of course once I dropped tane, however, I still have the "owl" face, (area around the eyes are normal skin color, cheeks are red and the end of the chee
  22. Hey, guys help me out with a few suggestions here. I was on accutane way back in Feb - Apr back in 2006, with 60MG intake. I stopped taking it because it was causing way too many severe side effects, such as insanely dry eyes. My eyes are still dry, although they don't drive me insane as long as I have some eye drops, but the facial redness from tane has never fully dissapeared. Although it improved after the first 5 months or so I stopped using tane, the face never got any less red, however
  23. Well, to make it short. I had perfect skin from age 18-20, when I started developing acne here and there, and then boom, I thought I had developed severe acne, so I went accutane. (60 mg/day 160Lbs) Unfortunately, redness began. I stopped acctuane after two months, actually Ipledge stopped me due to my prescription mess up, but either way, I just decided to call it quits because I was experiencing insane side effects (which I still do today, the dry eyes are still very bothersome) Amazingly,
  24. Day 25 well, due to the crazy redness that wasn't fading, I decided to give the CSR a break. Funny enough, in two days the tone returned to normal, the great part is that there was no breakout either. So im trying to see what would be the best method for me to go about now... once a day CSR? maybe Once every other day?? Would that even do anything? Kinda lost in this whole acne control thing. Oh and No, i have been off of accutane since April 2006. But the side effects still linger here and
  25. no new pimples that sounds awesome. Hopefully it stays that way for ya. Good luck with the CSR
