  1. your smile in your profile picture scares me

  2. thanks so much for such a kind post :) to answer your questions... -i have had chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion in the past and sadly i really don't think either of them did a thing for my acne. for me anyway it was a waste of (A LOT) money. -yes you can be on the nuva ring while on accutane. you have to be on a form of birth control while on accutane. i'm still currently on the nuva ring and i don't think it effects my skin in any way. not sure if it will help your PCOS but i hope i
  3. hey all : ) just wanted to drop in to give an update! it's been a little over a year since i've been off accutane. since then i've had a couple minor breakouts but also a few random cysts that i needed to get injected. i'm getting married on sept.18 (28ish days!!!!) and i know this might sound self centered and stupid but as the day gets closer i find myself thinking about my skin nonstop. i keep wondering what i will do if i do break out and amping myself up about it for no reason. it's like,
  4. i'm a HUGE advocate of cortisone shots! so i just had to reply to this. over the years i've probably gotten a couple dozen. i became to rely on them actually because they gave me such great results. i'm not really sure what you mean by 'indent'... i don't think this happens very often, and from my understanding it only happens if your derma injects too much cortisone (along with other reasons maybe i guess) but if you have a good derma hopefully you won't have this problem. i NEVER got an inden

  6. thanks c'est : ) i can always count on you to be amazing

  7. just wanted to give an update.. i've been using the Tretinoin cream .025% for about a week and a half now and my skin is breaking out like crazy. i'm not getting pimples or cysts that are coming to a head, but instead i'm getting these weird red blotchy bumps alllll over my cheeks that aren't going away. i'll post a picture sometime. my skin is also peeling pretty bad. i'm trying to not get all depressed and crazy like i used to be, and i'm trying to deal with it the best i can. when i find myse
  8. hi amanda. yes, he was the only derm in that particular office (it's like in the basement of a family practice). he said they were not going to fill his spot. no, he did not offer to start me in the ipledge system/tell me to take a preg.test or start me off with a prescription. he did not see the point in this because he wouldn't be able to be there to follow up with the whole process, which i can understand. he gave me the name of a different dermatologist, one of the only ones in maine who ac
  9. besides it making you red, did you have any other negative experience with retin-a? did it help you at all?
