  1. Day 1 - I am starting of at a low dosage of 10mg/day as told by my dermatologist. I just took my first pill right after a heavy meal as I heard heavy meals help the pill to absorb better. My routine consists of gentle cleansing, toner, and moisturizer day and night. I will wear a cc cream with SPF 50 if I go out. Day 2 - I have not experienced any side effects, nor has there been any change in my acne. My friends tell me to try rubbing raw potato on my skin, as it can help clear acne fast
  2. Hi everyone! So this is my week 8 of using differin. Last week was a mess. Still, this week is a mess. I have 2 whiteheads on right cheek and one on left cheek. This week I also apply benzac 5% for 20 minutes and wash out before washing my face with cleaser in both morning and evening. Acne reacted to benzac quite well but it leaves dry skin. I will keep using benzac but lower the time to 15 mins. My major problem for this week is scars which appear all over my face. Both left and right cheek
  3. Can you guys please help me understand whats up with my skin and how to resolve it? I had been using jojoba oil but stopped to see if anything changed, but it didnt! Please help! I just wash my face once a day using clean and clear and moisturize and ie pretty much it. Overall my face has a very weird texture as you can see.
  4. Hello, I tried one pass at shaving against the grain, didn't do good. It left me with a really dark brown spot with red undertones. The darkness has faded a little but it is still very prevalent as you can see. Can someone help me figure out what this is and what I can do to heal it?
  5. Hey, so I,ve been dealing with light acne since Im 14, Im 19 now and decided to go to the dermatologist about a month ago to just get over with acne and some little red marks, since I moved to a new city I had a really really bad breakout, like never before, so she prescribed me doxycycline 100 mg once a day and Retin A 0.025% every night, and sunblock every time I go out... so far I have not seen any improvements, my acne just got worse (maybe it is retin-a purge? since Im starting week 4) I ha
  6. Hello forum, 1st post here. I've had mild/severe acne about 10 years ago and haven't treated acne scars. My questions - what are my type(s) of scars?; Treatment options?; European doctors/clinics that people with my type(s) of acne scars and skin tone had positive results with (high sample sizes)
  7. I dont know if this is melasma, PIH, PIE, but this uneven skintone has remained for over 5 years. There are some indentations, so am wondering if the indentations are affecting the color?
  8. So I had a big cyst and it left a hole that has been slooooowly healing. I'm about 5 or 6 weeks into healing now. There is still redness and even a little sensitivity at the center (it is closed)...the indentation is gradually rising, but I'm not sure if it's going to make it all the way (?). Staring "atrophy" right in the face. No pun intended... In the case it doesn't and I'm left with some sort of rolling indentation, I've been reading up on my options to treat. I've seen a number of posts
  9. Hey, i wanted to do a TCA-cross this weekend , but i am also doing a general health check next next week in the hospital (doctor said no eating in 10 hours). I am worrying TCA might effect the result of the health check, should be i be concerned? Couldnt find any information about this.
  10. I have a hypertrophic scar on my forehead. Its very dark in pigment. I have already had a few cortisone shots to flatten it. I have done a few peels but none are working to remove the dark color and I barely see any improvement. Retin a and hydroquinone are not helping it to lighten. I went to a few derms and they suggested either Fraxel Dual or Intracel RF microneedling to help improve the scar at this point. The scar has lichened, meaning it has a leathery appearance. Its not smooth. Sho
  11. I've red somwhere that retinoinds made somebody's scars worse. I'm wandering if you heard something about it and if it referrs only to oral retinoids or also topical. I'm using topical retinoids to boost collagen after microneedling, therefore I'm asking.
  12. Hey folks, I am terrible with introductions so I will jump straight into it. Been here for a number of years, I have suffered from acne since 16. In the past, they would scar and look like enlarged pores. Since the age of 21, they started to indent but I wouldn't get constant acne. They usually come in a bunch then go away so I could treat them. I am now 25 and for the past 4 months, I have been getting roughly 6 cyst spots a month and they are all scarring heavily. Befor
  13. Hi guys, I will be starting my acne scar treatment journey next week with Dr. Novick . I sent him an email with the pictures of my scars and I told him that my acne scars might be untethered since they completely disappear when I pull my skin slightly. He suggested me to get a field subsicion to address the generalized atrophy within my cheeks. I am really excited to finally start my journey of scar treatments and I heard great things about Dr. Novick. Is there anything that I should be doing
  14. Hi, I thinking about microneedling radiofrequency for rolling acne scars, however I've red it is used also for hyperhidrosis treatment (by destruction of perspiratory glands). My concern is if this procedure going to destroy perspiratory gland on the face also?
  15. Okay so I just signed up on acne.org to make myself feel better and get some advice on this tragic thing i did for my face, because I really feel like trash right now. So last week. I was looking at the mirror, close up, at my blemishes. I have this problem where I will start picking at the smallest thing on my face because im so afraid of pimples. I pick on three pimples on my cheek. All got inflamed. Throughout the week i tried putting mask, benzoyl peroxide, baking soda, etc. Two of them went
  16. Hello! I have quite a few scars and would like some help on how to deal with them! I have 2 saucer-shaped scars, 2 shallow but still noticeable rolling scars, and a few icepick scars. One of my ice pick scars creates a big dimple in my skin and is inside of a rolling scar. Would TCA peels be able to help me over a long time? Or do I need different intervention for best improvement? thank you! I have outlined the rolling scars in green, and posted 4 photos! The scars aren't too deep and are most
  17. A week ago I got a really bad blemish and obviously I made the mistake of messing with it. Today I noticed the spot where the blemish was is indented. The mark is still new so I am not sure if it's still healing or if this will be a permanent acne scar, only time will tell but I'm curious to know what you guys think. Again it's only been a day since this has been indented and a week since the mark first showed up. I'll attach a picture so you can see and let me know what you think. This is the f
  18. Hi all, So I am wondering if any of you can impart your wisdom as to how to get rid of a soft, red, raised bump left over from a pimple quicker... Background: So I have clear skin now and have done for around 9 months (*finally!*). In this time frame I have only had 1 large under the skin bumps; this one gracefully planted itself slap bang in the middle of my cheek 2 weeks ago right next to a icepick scar (so it looked super attractive) after using Paula's Choice 2% BHA the night before for
  19. hi guys! i recently had a break out on my forehead and few pimples on my chin. and then a friend from a salon offered me to put some peeling agent, only on those area which had the pimples. after few days, it peeled. the pimples were gone but some parts of my skin were burned. i dont know if it is hyperpigmentation or what. but my main problem is how can i remove the dark marks? i used to have clear skin but now i cannot even go out without make up. can someone recommend me a scar cream or am
  20. Hi there, I'm looking for clarification when it comes to clearing my dark spots. I bought the acne.org treatment (cleanser, BP treatment, moisturizer and AHA). I don't currently have any active acne other than little bumps that showed up as you see in the pictures below while using the BP. All of the dark spots that I currently have on my face, chest and back are due to excessive picking. (Although I know I shouldn't, it's due to anxiety that I pick at the pimples I would get). What I'd like
  21. Hey I'm new to this site because I don't usually get acne. At most I get a few cystic acne a year and some white heads. This time I had a huge cystic acne next to my nose on my cheek. I put some benzoyl peroxide after it popped a bit and after that I squeezed all the stuff out. Then I put neosporin over it and put on a bandaid. Later, I also put some cerave moisturizing cream and Vaseline, each time over night. I got that pimple probably 5 days ago and popped it 3 days ago and now it's become a
  22. Hi, i had a spot on my nose in the summer and it left a raised scar, i think it is a hypertrophic scar. I was wondering what treatments are out there for me to get rid of it or even make it smaller and less noticeable. I prefer not to go to a dermatologist as I don't have the money I have included 2 photos, thanks.
  23. I am happy to say that the subcision I had last year worked very well on one scar. I also had a laser and prp. On my right cheek I can hardly see the large scar. It was getting worse because I am older. It's much much better! I do still see other scars but they have improved as well. In certain light I see a scar under my eye on my left cheek, but that's under certain light. I wanted to go for the four follow up subcisions but I don't want to deal with my wife nagging me on how vain I am. B
  24. Hi, so I've recently been able to clear my acne by using Epiduo. Now I'm left with scars that I would like to improve. They bother me every single day and I'm constantly worrying about them. It's partly a mental thing, I know, so I'm working on that. However, I would like to do what I can to start improving my scars. I've previously done two Matrix RF sessions and between break outs I've been microneedeling at home with a 0,5 mm stamp these past four months. I've seen a little improvement.
