  1. 27 years old and still struggling with acne. I thought I had been saved, rescued by the Mirena IUD for two years. Not a spot on my face but then the IUD had to go and when it did the acne came back with a vengence. I feel as though I have attempted everything from washes to antibiotics, even quit washing my face for a week- not because I was making an attempt at 'the caveman regimen' but because I had given up. Fraught with apathy for a week until the acne became so out of control I couldn't sta
  2. Ok, so the dilemma is that after finishing a course of isotretenoin that actually worked wonders I occasionally get these "bumps". I don't know whether or not call them acne since they are virtually painless and are not raised at all and they actually appear to have a hair growing through them and what bothers me is that they can be noticeably red despite not being inflammatory or anything, I avoid shaving and since I really don't grow a heavy beard I trim with scissors or use a razor without to

    Post-Levulan Break Out

    Hi everyone, I'm a long-time reader but first time poster at acne.org. Since I was 12, I've had on and off acne troubles that were completely exacerbated when I hit college. Since then, I have tried a wide range of treatments including Accutane that helped with my cystic acne but was not effective on the mess of small bumps that have spread out from my forehead and cheeks. About 11 days ago, I had a Levulan blue light treatment at a skin care clinic. They left it on for 6 hours and I

    Day 3 Levulan

    Day 3 and the redness has subsided. I woke up this morning with the majority of my skin a flakey, itchey mess. In the pictures from yesterday you can see on my left side that I had some bright red blemishes on my chin and along my jaw bone. But today, those have all mostly dried up and are just scabs now. I am fighting a serious urge to not pick at everything or grab a wet towel to scrub my face. I know this is doing wonders, I can feel it. But I can also feel that it hasn't necessarily 'cur
  5. 12 days later and haven't washed my face a day since. I am happy to report my acne issue as apparently been resolved. The only thing left over is scars and red marks from healing blemishes. Tiny zits come from time to time but they are gone as fast as they appear. My skin is mildly oily but not very noticeable. I am make-up free and not embarrassed in the slightest. Even classmates at school have noticed my skin clearing up! I fully intend on going back for another levulan treatment at th

    Day 4 Levulan

    Today is the 4th day after my first Levulan treatment and I have a face full of flake... Sorta gross but I am still seeing improvment! The blemishes I mentioned in yesterday's post have since surfaced, relieved themselves and scabbed already. One of them felt like it was going to be one of those big stubborn pimples, not cystic but large and inflammed anyway. I believe it probably would have turned out that way had I not gone through with the treatment in the first place. It only lasted a day an
  7. Hello all, My question is about how Levulan treatments should be spaced apart...my doctor came highly recommended, but his office and receptionists are a clusterf---, and have left me feeling confused and not really trusting the whole process anymore. I had my first treatment today, and I'm supposed to have my next treatment in a week (like 7 days from the first one), but that seems so soon based on everything I've ever read. My third treatment is 2 weeks after that, and 4 days before I'm f
