Braces :P in Member pictures 10 Posted November 23, 2006 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 acne is pretty much gone only because puberty has finally started to calm down so I don't break out as I did before. A good dermatologist does wonders for your skin as well. I used to have flawless skin before early highschool and hopefully I can get it back, or close to it, after I decide on which laser treatment is best for me. I'll post the "fixed" pics once I get it done.
