Avatar n tn Hi I have been undergoing som yellow and white peels at the skin clinic in preparation to laser skin resurfacing treatment. I hve finished 2 sittings of both the peels. Now just before a month to the laser treatment, my doctor has advised me to take sotret tablets for 30 days, and once done will start the laser.
Avatar m tn Hello, Fusidic acid and minocycline are both antibiotics which are used for the treatment of acne. Treatment options include topical and oral antibiotics, topical retinoids, hormonal therapy, dermabrasion , phototherapy and laser resurfacing. Normally a combination of treatments is followed and if nothing proves effective then dermabrasion and laser therapy are useful. You can discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist.

Avatar n tn I am about to receive the Venus laser treatment (burn to peel skin off) to fight some acne scars, fine lines and large pores. I have received this treatment before and it had an amazing effect on my skin, especially when it came to wrinkles. However some weeks, possibly months after the treatment, I experienced a rather speedy aging of my skin, especially around my eyes, even a little on my forehead.

Avatar n tn In all of my online research I have found little evidence to support the notion that the fractionated Co2 laser treatment will treat and prevent future acne, as claimed by this Dr. Please advise. Thanks.
Avatar n tn My question is how long do we have to wait after stopping Accutane treatment before starting this laser treatment ? If the answer is at least 6 months can you explain why so I can explain it to my son since he wants to start right away? Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn I saw a picture of it on TV and it looked like a sanding tool and not a laser that the doctors was using. I'm wondering what this treatment is called and where it is performed?
2135371 tn?1335886585 Is it the right time to have an acne treatment like laser scar removal? Anything I 've tried since now had no result on my scars and marks. Thank you!
Avatar n tn If you want an alternative to tablets have you looked into laser surgery? Advances in technology mean they can treat acne and other skin problems. Ask for a consultation and analysis in a reputable clinic. There are different types of laser treatments which work in different way to either shrink the oil glands or remove the bacteria from your skin.
Avatar n tn Take a look at my pictures to see how effective microdermabrasion and laser treatment can be at treating post-acne scars. You must wait 6 months after finishing Accutane treatment before having such procedures done because of the increased risk of scarring already fragilised skin. Oral retinoids can cause facial redness and it has only been 3 months since you finished Accutane. Use a good skincare regime for facial redness such as Clinique's Redness Solutions or Rosaliac by La Roche-Posay.

Avatar f tn A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment of your condition. The marks which are left behind after acne could be due to post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation or scars left behind by your acne lesions. In scarring the collagen in the skin is damaged from inflammation. This results in permanent changes in texture in the skin. It is known that cane can lead to permanent scarring which can be disfiguring.
Avatar m tn They occur after accidental injuries, acne, surgeries, burns and scalds. A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment of your condition. Depending on the type and age of a scar there are a variety of different treatments which can help make them less visible and improve their appearance. There are few medicated creams to remove scars but it is best to consult a dermatologist before using them.
948349 tn?1294383837 I wear 3 shirts a day... 1 after my shower and before my bed, 1 after i get out of bed and go off for my day, and 1 after i workout. (I know showering would help after my workout but then i just want to have 1 shower a day, not 2). 13.Hair... I wash my hair daily, and I wash it first when I shower. The bacteria will rinse off on my body, and the bacteria will wash all over my body out of my hair.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Venlafaxine (Effexor) to help me deal with the anxiety and social phobia I felt due to my acne. It has really helped me, and not increased my acne. Acne is not mentioned as a potential side effect of Effexor in the leaflet enclosed with the pills. DO NOT stop taking Effexor suddenly because serious withdrawal symptoms may occur. I have reduced from 150mg daily to 75mg and I'm now on 37.5mg. See your doctor for a suitable acne medication. Oral antibiotics can be helpful.
Avatar f tn Im thinking of trying it again and giving it more time than I did before. Currently Ive been using Neutrogena for spot treatment and Clearisal for washing my face. The spot treatment has been kinda working even once and awhile, but it doesnt really clear up the pimples, it just keeps them from turning into a bigger whitehead. For the past 2 weeks Ive been having huge breakouts on my cheeks, chin and near my mouth.
Avatar f tn I didn't think that Clearlight was a laser. I believe it is just a certain type of light which kills bacteria. originally found info about it on the website for it.

Avatar f tn it has turned into a deep pink to a redish with veins that can be seen on both cheeks and is spreading down my neck to the top of my chest and back with acne. I do not get acne as bad on my face as I do on my neck. I have tried many remedies for the acne with no hope. I just wanted to mention the "blood moles" that are mentioned to appear in older people. And my dermatologist could not figure out what my skin condition was, after testing various things.

Avatar f tn Hello, Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from Fraxel laser treatment. Other side effects include itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, bronzed skin appearance, hyperpigmentation and scarring. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn My acne seems untreatable. I've tried every OTC product - Murad, Proactiv, Clean & Clear, Severe Acne Treatment, some BZ cream with daily herbal chewables for males, and everything else you see advertised or on the shelves. They all did nothing. I went to a dermotogist and had 2 different daily oral antibiotics - they did nothing. She also had me try some AHA cream. Nothing. I've tried vitamin regimens and diets (Pericone's Acne Cure).
Avatar n tn 43/M here who has suffered from acne since the age of 12 and I found taking accutane actually helped my acne in one area and hurt it in another. Like a lot of diseases, the genes play the predominate reason for the suffering.
Avatar n tn I'm not trying to get pregnant anytime soon, but having adult acne really does make you feel horrible. My twin has no acne, and i'm so envious of her. Anyway, if you have any idea how you know your acne is hormonal, please let me know.
Avatar n tn I also wash my face with clean and clear every morning and at night and I put benzaclin after. I tried neutrogena acne wash, biotherm and other products but none of them helped!!! I also have a huge rash on my neck! I've had it ever since I started shaving, I get ingrown hairs and there are a lot of red dots all over my neck! I apply benzaclin there too but nothing happened. Before shaving I tried using a hot cloth but that didn't help either!
Avatar f tn My skin now at a stage where its extremely sensitive and I fear that indented scar will be something I will suffer after melasma treatment and that's not even a promising of how effective this laser will be. I'm worried if its even worth it anymore. I've spend a lot of money to pretty much damage my skin. I'm trying to think positive and look for a way of recovery the damage tissue on my skin. I don't know if I should go thru the fourth treatment at this point.
