  1. I have pretty pale skin too. The only real solution is to wear a good, non clogging spf. You can buy a face moisturizer/spf combo- I Use Purpose moisturizer plus spf 15 and it works pretty well. Also, even though they say its bad for your skin to be exposed to a lot of sunlight, I find that getting a little sun (not frying yourself outside all day) actually makes your skin appear more even because you get some color on the rest of your face too, not just the blotchy red marks.
  2. me? they were red. they're fading a lot though, like a light pink at the moment.
  3. I definitely agree! I am using the 4% with Retin-A Micro and i couldn't be happier. My skin isn't perfect by any means, but its well on its way to being spot free.
  4. I am seeing alot of improvement on my red marks in just a few weeks with the 4%. Pics are in my gallery.
  5. Plastic surgeons offices and medical spas with skin specialists can also prescribe 4%, and the consultations are usually free. If your current doctor doesn't even know what hydroquinone is, it might be best to see a specialist who can tell you what exactly will work best on your skin type. The place i went to threw in some extra samples of facewash, lotion, etc. from the line of products they sell, and they're fantastic.
  6. I posted in another thread about this, but I didn't have many replies. My skin is pretty smooth, yet when I spread my skin apart you can see tons of white bumps. Anyone know what this is and how I can get rid of it? I'm currently on Tretinoin and using Dermesse (4% hydroquinone solution).
  7. I am really impressed with my results with Dermesse.
  8. I've found that overusing Tretinoin just makes it extra clumpy in the morning and doesn't really peel my skin any more than it normally would. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind it, but my doctor told me that applying too much of it is actually worse for your skin than applying a thin layer.
  9. Since I've posted in a bunch of threads on this, I'm assuming you've read about my experiences. I love Dermesse cream (its 4%, prescription). Within just a few weeks, my red marks have lightened significantly..and it works great in combination with tretinoin. (I swear i'm not a salesman! haha.) I put pictures in my gallery if you want to see what my results were.. I can never get pics to load right in threads.
  10. I too, have been told that you should apply it all over your face. I was told it helps give your entire face a smoother appearance and evens out the tone all over. Then again, i'm a pretty pale girl so it may not be recommended for people with darker complexions.
  11. I am using Dermesse, a 4% solution. I'm having pretty good results (pics are in my gallery). It does dry my skin out, so I use a lot of moisturizer. I don't spot treat..I spread a thin layer over my whole face because my doctor said it evens skin out. Let me know if you have any ?'s.
  12. Labgirl, I posted pictures in my gallery so maybe you could tell me for sure if that is what they are? You seem to have a really good idea about what you're talking about. Bobby, is that your condition too? argh.
