  1. Well I just finished my 5 month course of Accutane. It cleared me up 100%, but throughout my course I've gotten some scarring. My scarring is really shallow and is not that noticeable but when the right angle of light hits it you can see my scars. I really don't like it at all, and it makes me feel kind of insecure. What can I do to smooth out my skin and what kind of results do you think I'll have. I don't plan on doing any treatments for a few months so the accutane can get out of my system bu
  2. Ok, so I'm on my last month of accutane. Accutane caused me to get a lot of scars. I normally don't scar at all. I actually kind of regret using accutane cause in my family history I'd be done with acne in 2 years. Well now I have shallow scars on my cheeks and sides of my faces and very few scars on my forehead. What would be the best treatment for these types of scars and how much results should I see with the treatment? Thanks for taking the time to read this.
  3. So I've tried 5 different treatments over the past year. I've tried differin, brevoxyl, minocycline, doxycycline, and amoxicillin. Differin, brevoxyl, and doxycycline don't help me at all. Minocycline and amoxicillin helped a tiny bit but not too much. My next appointment is in a few days and I wanted to do accutane the first time I stepped into his office but he wanted to try other things first and use accutane as a last resort. Do you think he'll allow me to start accutane now since I've tried
  4. 3 bowls of cereal, 2 lunches at school, end of school snack, string cheese (very high in protein for how tiny it is), 1 weight gain shake (around 1300 calories and 72 grams of protein), about 6 glasses of milk a day, well balanced dinner, and an evening snack makes for somewhere around 5000 calories for me. Also I eat fastfood like 4 days of the week. I also get around 200 grams of protein. I weightlift about 4 times a week. This whole routine helps a lot in building muscle. Since last year I ga
  5. We watched the same movie. The radio dj was staying up as for a certain amount of time to raise money for charity. When he finished staying up for like 7 days they took him away to try to get him to go to sleep, and the dj thought the people trying to help him were undertakers taking him away.
  6. And I want some other peoples opinions about this. When you put 10% bp on before you go to sleep do you put a little bit on or glob it on so it dries on overnight to nuke the whitehead?
  7. For example, say I have a whitehead forming but it hasn't surfaced yet. If I use BP will this make my whitehead surface faster so I can pop it or will it prevent from surfacing and just let it heal where it is?
  8. This isn't about acne scars but still about scars. I had 3 moles removed when I was in elementary school (I'm 16 now). I went to the dermatologist and he took a look at the scars and didn't even feel them or anything and just said. Nope there's nothing we can do because the scars are discolored for your skin color. Is this true? There is nothing I can do to fade the scars? They are about the size of peas. One is sticking out of my skin a little bit and 2 are a little bit indented. I think the on
  9. I'm using the differin .3% gel too. For me all it did was reduce my amount of breakouts a little bit. It wasn't a miracle cure.
  10. So If I used antibacterial handwashing soap on my face could I see the same results as with BP since they both kill the bacteria. I tried using antibacterial soap for sensitive skin on my face and I kind of like how it cleaned all the oil off me. I had a really oily face... like puddles and used this soap and my face was oil free. Can I use this instead of BP with the same antibacteria results? (the few times I have tried this I haven't broken out from the soap)
  11. Um... your going to explain more because people can't guess what kind of acne you have. Try posting a picture or going into detail what it looks like.
  12. Does HGH(human growth hormone) cause people to break out? I've been taking this cycle I started like 4 days ago, and I can't decide whether or not it's caused a breakout because I normally have mild/moderate acne which I don't think has changed. I also can't decide whether my creatine is making me break out or if it is just the weight lifting. I weight lift about 4 times a week. Does anyone else notice breakouts with these supplements and does anyone have any ways to try and help prevent breakou
