  1. So here's what it looks like after finishing my 5-month course: You can't see that much scarring from the photo, but it's definitely there. Oddly enough I had a couple more small zits appear a day or two before I was totally done with the medication (you can see one on my chin).

  6. Hey all, reading about your experiences through this site has been invaluable to me. So I thought I'd document my own journey as well, and maybe someone out there will find it useful. The Backstory Like the description says, I'm 24 right now. I've had mild-to-moderate acne since I was in middle school. I've been through the topicals in my early years - proactiv, benzamycin, differin and they seemed to work a little bit at keeping things under control, but never permanently though. Things start
