  1. Hey! I wish I had known this earlier cuz it would have saved me from alot of grief, hence Im sharing it with u. Hopefully it will help cuz i know how frustrating it can be. I have always suffered from "mild" acne since puberty and nothing seemed to work. BP helped a tiny bit, but i would still break out and it would cause mild allergic reactions for me. So, here I am (years later) on a new perscription and totally loving it. Im pretty much totally clear and really happy. I tried and tested a

    im getting smoothbeam done. This is a pic of me before the procedure (may 30). U can see my pic clearer cuz i got a new cam with a higher m. pixel rating. I broke out two weeks ago cuz of seasonal changes. My derm told me my best option was CO2 laser. He told me that smoothbeam wont really do much, for my case, and i should only expect a 10% improvement. Buuuuut... supposedly my skin will be less oily after and thats the reason why im going for it. woot!

    I've been using proactiv for about a year (only because it comes in a convenient package). It *helped* to keep things in check but it didn't magically clear my skin.

    my skin is soo blotchy. this was taken when i was on proactiv.
  8. I use iso-trentoin and it has pretty much cleared up what benoyl peroxide (proactiv form) failed to do. I was just wondering if anyone else is on it and if they could write about their long term results. I believe iso-trentoin is a topical form of accutane which is derived from vitamin a or retinoic acid.
  9. I'm currently undergoing glycolic acid treatments (had 4 so far). I was wondering if anyone else could discuss about their results after their treatments. so far this is what has happened. 1.) i visited my dermatologist who perscribed iso-trentoin (a topical form of accutane), the results were spectacular. (note my acne has always been light/moderate) 2.) he told me to try glycolic acid peels every two weeks. Im on number 4 right now. Right now i find that alot of superficial scars are showi
