  1. I'll try if I remember this thread in 3-4 months.
  2. Well, I am going to the Derm in Sept, this is when the accutane waiting period, once you are off, is over. I'll ask what he can do. I have red marks, which, I think, make the scarring more prominent. I usually check i nthe morning when the blood isn't rushing like it is during the day, and I can't really notice them. Some light I can see indented scars, but once I look in the mirror, I can't see them at all. Anyways, i'll just see what the derm can do once I go back. Any more treatments for thi
  3. Questions about Smoothbeam, which I might get to heal( ) shallow scaring. Of course, once I am done with Accutane and after the three month waiting period. 1. Is it good for shallow scarring? 2. Is it good for ice pick scars, which I have quite a few of? 3.Is it good for depressed scars? (Not sure if I have many, or any, of these, but just to be on the safe side. 4.How much of an improvement is usually expected? 5.How long is the healing period? 6.What can I expect my face to be like duri
  4. Note: I took this from my other thread in another section of the forums. Thought I'd get more answer this way. Hence the title. I'm all clear now, exlcuding the red marks. The only zit i've had in weeks was one on the side of me face, near my ear lobe. Now for the scarring. I am thinking of getting Laser treatment, see how that goes through. I have 2-3 ice pick scars, some look deep in certain light, but I can't feel them or see them when I get really, really close to the mirror, and it is s
  5. I'm all clear now, exlcuding the red marks. The only zit i've had in weeks was one on the side of me face, near my ear lobe. Now for the scarring. I am thinking of getting Laser treatment, see how that goes through. I have 2-3 ice pick scars, some look deep in certain light, but I can't feel them or see them when I get really, really close to the mirror, and it is still red. Two of the others are on the left side and are pretty close together, I think they are shallow. I've gone all year with th
  6. Well, 10 days since my last posts, this may even be my last if things keep going to way they are. So far most has clear up. I have about 1 on my cheeks, 3 on my chin, and one on my forehead. This is the clearest i've been in, about, 6 months, or so. All are going down, also, which is always a plus. Went to the derm on the 16th, they filled my persciprtion wrong. They only gave me enough pulls for 20 days, 60 pills to be exact. I was supposed to get 90 pills, I take 3 a day, and return on March 1
  7. Well, I must say, I am better off then I was 5 weeks ago. I had about 15 on my face and my chin, well I forgot how many I had there, but they were big ol' crysts. Anywas, I know the Red Marks will take longer to heal on Accutane, I;ve had remakrs before, and, excuse my language, they can be a bitch sometimes. I tend not to look in the mirror anymore, which helps a little. And ,yes I do use mousturizer sometimes, rarely though. I used it all day today, but it really didn't help, to be honest.
  8. Well, now my main problem is Red Marks. Had them before, don't want them agian.. Still havn't stopped breaking out, can any answer if this is normal or not? (It has been 1 month Tuesday, I go back next week the 16th.) Skin has been dry, but I really havn't done anything about it, to be honest. I have had less breakouts, and my cheeks have almost recovered. (I have about 2 on each cheek, and 4 on my chin. 1 on my forhead) Now i'm mad because I have redmarks, I guess i'll get some Vitamin C ta
  9. Well, a week after that. Both cheecks have gotten better. My left one bork out last Monday, I beleave. Since then they have gone down, and should be, hopefully, be gone by Tuesday. We had a 4 day weekend... Anyways, right has gotten alot better, all the ones I had my last post are gone. I still have 1 small one, came up today, and a larger one on the side. My chin hasn't gotten too much better, my trouble area has decreased to one now, I have one right on my chin, but the inflammtion in it has
  10. Well, nothing has really gotten much better. My cheeks have broke out, especially the right one. The left cheek is doing alright, but still one or two to get rid of. Chin borke out a little, some are still going down. Forhead is mostly clear, just one or two to deal with there, also. I guess the glands have shrunk, this would also be the cause of the new pimples i'm guessing? The oil ony my face has pretty much came to almost nothing, which is a big improvement over what it used to be like. I go
  11. Does anyone know any good lotions to use?
  12. Question:Is my face supposed to get dry after awhile. I think it is starting too, expeccially on my cheeks and around my mouth. My lips are chapped too, but I know that is normal so no need explaining that. And ,if so, what are some good lotions to use and where can you get them at? *Edit* Oh, and just so you know, or if you care, The pimples on my left cheeck have scabbed over, not sure why but they always seem to do this, guess it is natures way of healing. (No, I didn't pick them) My right c
  13. Well just to keep you updated, I may ever week or so. 3rd day, not much has changed, Cheecks have clear up a little, but still a couple of new ones have came up. But,it is only the 3rd day, I can't expect much by then, can I now? Lips havn't dried out yet, and my eyes arn't dry eaither, joints hurt, but that is all. Chin has 3-5 new ones, cheeks have about 2-3 new ones, but more have went away on them.
  14. Heh, yes, the pregnent woman on every inch of the box gets anoying. He gave me 20mg, so far nothing has really happened in terms of a breakout. Except one on my forhead, but I think that one has been coming up for awhile. So far my skin feels 100% less oily, which is also a plus. And, yes, my dad went and got me some balm and eye drops, havn't had to use them yet. I can tell it is working though, joints are starting to hurt, which I heard was a side-effect. I was hesitant about going on this, b
