  1. Your description of the your problem is very much how it seems for me! 

    Only compare to people over 60, sensations in the face, dermatologists so far unhelpful etc. 

    Something is clearly up.  Its interesting we have almost the same side effects. 

    The fact we have sensory changes/damage is odd as it is not meant to happen with many powerful 'deep in the skin' cosmetic treatments.  I will see a doctor soon. But everything is going slowly. Its been over a year for me and symptoms have not gone. 

    edit: Basically I think the reason i had more and more spots(odd ones not like acne i had before) and bubbles was that the deeper skin was affected. This is odd as its serious damage. Explains the sensory issues.

  2. Thanks. I hope it is better long term. Though i think pictures make it hard to tell as angles and lighting are misleading.

    I am trying to stop the Differin, I now get more acne than i did in the past without any anti acne medication... The whole thing is a nightmare. Very few products work well enough to not cause irritation.

    I will be seeing some dermatologists soon. So far no doctor has truly been of help. 

  3. My skin was not like this my whole life and early in the accutane / isotretinoin treatment period. It changed dramatically. Luckily i took pictures showing transition. The skin is badly scarred looking at a distance. 

    I had more acne in the second half of the treatment period mirroring afew others here. 

    I still have a burning sensation and numbness in my face. 

  4. Ok A quick update. Minimal change here. Approaching 1 and a half years.

    None of the pore sizes or shapes have changed much if at all. I feel less discomfort in the skin but it is still there at all times. 

    I was given Differin by the doctor (more vitamin A! ) but it does help keep the face clear. I wish I was given this rather than accutane /isotretinoin as this would have worked fine with the amount of acne i had. :(

    I am also taking Efracea which is a low dose -time release doxycycline medicine. This seems to help with inflammation somewhat. 

    Hope everyone is well. Recommendations would be great as i am so afraid of experimenting. 

  5. I was wondering how everyone washes Vaseline or other stuff with a high amount of petroleum?

    Face washes seem to do nothing. Vaseline itself is very soothing but the after affect always leaves my skin in worse shape as it never comes off.

    edit: referring to Vaseline on the face.

    My current regimen is this, but it was free of the vitamin C and AHA up until approximately 1-2 months ago which was when I first started to add in more actives in my routine. Now I'm thinking about needing to take out all the actives because it might be causing the orange-peel texture??

    AM Routine:
    Wash with Shiseido Miracle Whip foam cleanser, I work it up to a lather with a foaming net first before applying to skin.
    Wipe with Silk Naturals 8% AHA toner
    Apply Alpha Hydrox 10% AHA Oil Free Formula, wait 20min.
    Apply copper peptide serum (I've finished a bottle of MYM Advanced Derma Rolling Copper Peptide with Apple Stem Cell and Argireline, and now am trying JJ Labs Copper Peptide (GHK-Cu) Pro Skin Care Serum with Hyaluronic Acid off Amazon)
    Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence
    Advanced Skincare Skin Rescue Rx (Anti-Aging-Serum-Cream-Snake-Peptide-Vitamin-B3-b5-E-C-Retinol-DMAE)
    6-7 drops jojoba oil and 4-5 drops rosehip seed oil as moisturizer
    Currently using EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 with niacinamide sunscreen

    PM Routine:
    ROHTO Hadalabo Gokujun Cleansing Oil or Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil
    Shiseido Perfect Whip with foaming net + Clarisonic with acne brush
    Noble formula zinc pyrithione soap
    Advanced Skin Care Vitamin C Serum 20+E Ferulic Acid Skin Brightening Wrinkle (L-Ascorbic Acid ), + wait 20-30min
    Curology (1% clindamycin, 4% niacinamide, 4% azelaic acid)
    Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence
    Advanced Skincare Skin Rescue Rx (Anti-Aging-Serum-Cream-Snake-Peptide-Vitamin-B3-b5-E-C-Retinol-DMAE)
    6-7 drops jojoba oil and 4-5 drops rosehip seed oil as moisturizer

    Would TCA cross also make the "orange peel" texture of my skin worse? 
    I also just recently started dermarolling with a 1.0mm dermaroller, only did it once last month and I know they say it may take a couple monthly treatments before seeing any results. I'm a little disappointed to hear that it didn't do much for you though =( Did it seem to make things any worse?

    It sounds like you are doing too much?I would never be able to tolerate the routine you are mentioning even when my skin was good.
