  2. Hello all, I was on accutane for 5 months at 80 mgs per day. I just finished my course in mid August. In the last couple weeks, my skin has retunred to a pre-Accutane level of oil and IM starting to break out all over again. Im not getting cysts, but I am breaking out quite a bit. I scar very easily and before my acne gets worse, I would like to get back on Accutane. My question is do I have to wait a certain amt of time before Im able to get back on Accuane since I Just finished my treatm
  3. Hi, gettingitdone! Just wanted to wish you luck and let you know you're a beautiful girl--with or without acne. From reading your posts, I can tell your beauty is way more than just skin deep and I admire your good-hearted personality. Take care, beautiful.
  4. Hello, I will be going to my dermatologist tomorrow to request accutane. My only concern is that my parents have switched insurances from a PPO (preferred physicians' org) to an HMO which is cheaper and tends to have less benefits. I wanted to know if any of you guys have an HMO and whther or not that policy covers your rx for accutane. If it does, just to get a general idea, could you please tell me what your co-pay is for rx monthly. I thank you in advance for your help.
  5. which picture are you, if you dont mind me asking?
  6. I was thinking about this. Alien, do you shave this transplanted facial hair, or do you keep a permanent beard? Is your beard really thick now? Does the facial hair grow faster than your normal facial hair or slower? Pls let me know. Thanks.
  7. I've been using Super CP Serum for a while now. I recently had my derm write me a rx for retin-a. So I get it filled and lo and behold, it's in liquid form!!! I've used retin-a micro before and it was a cream. That was maybe 3 years back. Is this the new form of retin-a or something? On the box it says " Retin-A Liquid .05%" Do any of you guys know anything about this
  8. Lactic acid is pretty mild as it is a fruit extract. 50% Salicylic is pretty strong though, or I think so at least. Have you tried the peel yet?
  9. I bought the 50% Salicylic Acid/85% Lactic Acid Peel from Loganwood Skincare about a week back. I've applied it twice so far for three minutes each time. Today is the second day since the second application. I didn't peel after the first application and I see no sign of peeling so far after the second. I called Richard after the first application and asked him if I was supposed to peel and he said not really. The thing is, when the peel arrived to my home, the bottle had somehow leaked and
  10. tacey, you use CP this early into your healing? I was under the impression CP should be used after scabs have fallen off and new skin is forming? Clarification would be great. Thanks.
  11. Today is my 21 day since my needling. Unfortuntelly, the results thus far have been pretty minimal. I am thinking about using 50% TCA CROSS on some remaining icepick scars at the 1-month mark of my needling. Thereafter, I'm thinking about using Glycolic Peels once a week. At first, however, I wanna start off slow and work my way up. My question is: Is there any way to dilute TCA and Glycolic Acid? I intend to purchase 50% TCA and an 85% Glycolic/Lactic Acid peel. I plan on leaving the 85
  12. I just purchased some CP serum from skinbiology.com. I called skin biology and asked if the serum needed to be refrigerated after opening or anything liek that. The lady told me that the serum should be kept at at least room tep (69 degrees) and if the temp in the house exceeds 69 degrees, the serum should be refrigerated. My house is usually about 74 degrees day and night. I am kinda hesitant to refrigerate the serum. Have any of you guys heard anything similar to this regarding CP serum?
  13. As some of you may know, I just underwent needling yesterday in hopes of reducing my acne scarring. The needled areas are pretty extensive...I got both cheeks needled and my forehead. I didn't realize I'd look this gruesome after the procedure, but nonetheless, I am happy with my decision to have it done. I return to work Tuesday. I don't really know what to tell ppl when the ask. However, since I'll only be working there till the end of July, I don't really care too much. Goodness, the w
  14. I just had needling done yesterday. I had the needling done byt he same tattooist who did [censored name]'s needling. Anyhow, I have read the needling thread and I also have read a lot of other needling-related threads. I'm trying to emulate Denise2's aftercare protocol as she has had tremendous success with the treatment. In the needling thread, Denise, you said that you apply the CP serum and emu oil right after the needling session and you apply it about 5 times a day anf wash your face tw
