I'm just scared of acne scars...still don't have them but there is possibility to get them.Is it possible to totally get rid of them?

I have a few and I was looking into it.There is a laser resurfacing procedure you can do. I was looking at some youtube video on it. I don't think it's cheap though.

ive only had two zits that were cystic-like twice in my life. both of them healed fine and quickly.

the last time i got one, i panicked. i thought i was going to get a boil! luckily it dissapated in two days.

Kenysha75, good luck with the accutane. hope your skin doesnt dry out too much. hopefully it will kill them all once and for all...

I have had fairly substantial acne scarring over the years,mainly on my chin. They have mostly faded over time however,and for me they're nothing that make up won't cover. I remember clinique once did a product that claimed to reduce/remove them but it was absoluetly useless.

I'm off to my Doctor again in 2 hours to try and get something sorted for my face again as out of nowhere I have had a really painful breakout for about 10 days now,not fun.

Just back from the Doctor. I got put back on zineryt topical solution for the 3rd time even though I wanted to try something different,but also the birth control pill microgynon which the doctor thinks will have a good effect on my skin. But failing this I am going to be referred to a derm in 3 months,yay!

Ive seen a lot of girls on forums getting birth control pills prescription for their acne and it helps them a lot
It is probably better to prescribe antibiotics first and then roaccutane if nothins workin, but anyway I know a lot of doctors prescribe the bcp right away

How are you finding your treatment so far Kenysha?

I'll start on my bcp in 3 weeks time,but I'm starting the zineryt tonight.My self esteem has been all over the place recently thanks to the state of my skin. Last week I purchased a clinique oil control cleansing mask which,even though I'm not a hug fan of clinique,I quite like so far.

I really like the treatment so far its been 3 weeks now 30mg/day and all the bad germs were comin out for the first two weeks
My dm will probably raise it to 40mg/day next month I dont know yet
I dont have that much dryness and I can actually see thats its clearin up so fast Im putting all my faith in this treatment !
Ill be on roaccutane for 5 to 6 months
I hope the bcp will work out for you

Heres what you should do first
This is what Ive done anyway see a specialist cause the dm cant see that anyway
You need to see an hormones specialist sorry dont know the name in english for "endocrinologue"
And you need to get your male and female hormone dose results
To see if they are not too high
Its called sdha test in french anyway Ive done it plenty times
You really need to see if your sdha level is not too high

10-150 ug/dL (for women post menaupose)

50-700 ug/dL (men 20 to 70 years old)

I had really bad bad acne for almost 2 years!!

Then i tried out not to eat spices and sugar anymore !! My skin is [almost] perfect now

I'm soo happy now.

BTW i took the pill almost a year and used endless cremes that my doctor gave me but they did not help!

i'm not sure if someone mentioned that already..

what really really works is onion. as simple as that.

you just grab white onion, cut in in half and rub it in your face 3-4 times a week. just remember to close your eyes during this.
hope it works!

had to update since it's been a while

I started roaccutane in september till april this year, 30mg/a day for 6 months and now 2 months after my treatment my skin is still flawless and most acne scars have gone, I only have a few minor left which I'm sure will fade in time, I've been using mario badescu vitamin c serum on them and it's giving a great boost at the healing proces

kenysha, best of luck with the treatment, it did wonders for me!
