  1. Mainly I am trying to see if i can buy something over the counter. Maybe a anti-aging cream or firming cream or those mini facial exfoliator thingys: Neutrogena Advanced Solutions At Home MicroDermabrasion System or maybe the Olay Regenerist line?
  2. Wow. I just finished last week. Congratulations to you... It was one rough road for me and i hope it stays gone. i was just looking at pics earlier of when i had it bad and those pics were on days where i thought it didn't look so bad. i only took pics when i thought you couldn't see it so much. but i looked at the pics today and even then it was horrible. Im uploading you a pic that was taken in April and i had already been on the accutane since jan and my skin was improved in the pic. Secon
  3. Thank you all for the lovely compliments but I am not here fishing for compliments. I don't care what everyone thinks about my skin. It's my thought that really counts. And i am my own worst critic. So.... If anyone has any suggestions of what i can do to improve my acne scars in the mean time, please let me know. Thanks!
  4. I am her hahaha. I haven't tried it yet. that's why im asking. Would anyone know if it would make a difference? i know i have to wait around 6 months to talk to my derm about serious procedures. but in the mean time i would like to know what might help me shink the holes. Thanks, Shayna.
  5. Do you think i could get any results from one of those mini microdermabrasion thingys they sell at the store?
  6. i have just completed my Accutane treatment. And it was a rough journey, i am glad to be finished... I have holey kind of indents in my cheeks now. they are from the cyst kind of acne. i feel like i look like a crater face. i know most people dont notice but i do. I am wondering if there are any face washes, creams, moisturizers, etc. that can maybe help me either tighten my face and/or make the holes not as deep/noticable. Thanks! i am trying to attach a pic of my cheek for an example.
  7. if you were already used to being exposed i don't think it will be as bad a sympton as it would to someone who didn't have UV exposure. I was tanning once or twice a week the whole time i was on it and the only time i would get burned is if they just changed the bulbs and it normally was just my butt hahaha since that never sees sun anyway it was more at risk i think.. but after i started taking 80 mg a day i got burnt one time when i was in the sun from 8-7... but i think that would have happ
  8. I know im not dying. i am asking if anyone might have a clue of whats going on?
  9. Ever since i woke up this morning i have been having a shooting pain on my chest. Located above your breats on your chest/breat plate (whatever its called) and like a finger over towards the left. its not when i take deep breaths i already thought of it. Could this be from my accutane or maybe anxiety from personal problems? it has been happening a lot more frequently and i dont want to just go to the dr. and look like one of those patients that gets seen for nothing (hypocondriac- i think thats

  11. i did the whole retin-a thing before going on accutane and retin-a made my face dry and flakey and GROSS. but my skin is just dry on accutane... not flakey at all so it is more managable. i just odered Everyday Minerals and i love it!!! bare minerals always seemed to make me breakout more and was too yellow ans shimmery so EM is perfect! it works well even though my face is kind of dry. i had a HORRIBLE initial breakout on accutane so i needed to use the full coveral liquid founation, but now a
  12. Well i think part of the reason i only rarely burn is from my nationality that i have. I am half native american 1/4 german and some other white... (It doesn't look like it too much, my mom is white and blue eyes light hair, Dad dark skin dark hair and believe it or not green eyes.) I live with 2 cousins who are 3/4 and they never got burnt. And my friend who is i think half took it over this last summer, never put on screen and was on the water everyday, didn't get burnt once... So i do agre
  13. I am on Day 18. Before i started my Derm stated that my cystic acne would most likely get worse for awhile. So she also prescribed me a low antibiotic mixed with sulfer (Something like that..) And She was right it certainly did. It got bad and my lymph node under my chin had swelled up on Day 4 of accutane. So i waited one day and went to the Dr. and he told me that since my acne had worrsened so quickly it irritated my l.n. So he said since im already taking some sort of antibiotics that i nee
  14. How much is it to get a pixel treatment? does it hurt? how many times does it take to see results?

    1. Thank you for your post. The only lotions i put on my face are for my face. I don't put a tanning lotion on it. (Even before i was on accutane) And i ALWAYS put the towel over my whole face for half the time and then leave it over my forehead for 2 extra minutes. And i do understand that i will keep getting more and more sensitive. But like i said earlier i have to have some sort of glow. It just makes me feel better. Kind of a mental thing i guess... I think i look better with a little bit of
