Avatar n tn hey bud, i hate to burst your bubble but accutane doesn't clear acne forever. i took it for 6 months, which the acne completely went away. then about 6 months later it came back, not as worse but i'm on benzimycn(sP?). it sure does the trick though when you take it.
Avatar m tn I was wondering about how I could heal acne scars. I have been having ongoing acne for at least 4 years now. The acne only really appears on my nose and around my mouth area (below nose and below lower lip). Unfortunately, I have multiple acne scars now. Also, I have large pores that won't close: is there a way to make them disappear?
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 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.
Avatar n tn Last year I stared getting ingrown hairs in my face pretty much out of nowhere. I really did not have acne problems before this began. I have been using duac gel and it reallt has not gotten much better. I have been told that laser treatment would be a great choice. What is the average price range for the laser removal of ingrown hairs?

Avatar n tn I have had continuing problems with acne and cysts on my buttocks area for approximately 15 years. I have seen multiple physicians regarding the condition, however, all have either treated me only with antibiotics or considered it an allergic reaction of some sort, regardless, none of the treatments have worked. Recently I went to a new dermatologist who diagnosed me with Acne Inversa, however, he stated it was curable and prescribed me Accutane.

Avatar f tn It would be unusual for acne to itch, and unusual for rosacea to scar. You may have two co-existing conditions, I have acne and rosacea and also get dermatitis.
Avatar n tn Still, it gives only fair results for acne scars. Sometimes the laser peel is repeated in 6 or 12 months for better smoothing. Laser peels involve pain, cost, and lengthy recovery, however. be sure the doctor you consult has a lot of experience. And if you're serious about laser peels for acne, you may want to look into CO2 laser peels too. Best. Dr.
Avatar m tn It does not work as well on deep scars. In laser surgery for acne scars, a hand-held laser is used to burn off the scarred skin cells. Fresh new skin cells then replace the burned-off ones. Benefits of Laser Surgery for Acne Scars The lasers used for Laser Acne Scar Removal in India are very precise, allowing the dermatologist or plastic surgeon to target only the affected skin and leave any healthy, unscarred skin alone.
Avatar m tn Take at least 2 showers a day. If there are cysts or nodules then seeking the opinion of a dermatologist for laser therapy or surgery will be helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hello, Scars occur at the site of tissue damage .They appear as firm red to purple fibrous tissue that over time usually becomes flatter and lighter in color. 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.
Avatar m tn There arent really any solid treatments for it, but laser surgery is an option if its really important to you, but i wouldnt reccomend it as it can cause scarring or skin colour differences in that area. And sebacious prominence tends to come back after laser surgery, but there are cases where it hasnt.
Avatar f tn One of my friends had same issue and she got an acne treatment done from a cosmetic surgery clinic, Fairview Laser Clinic in Toronto. It worked well on her. I was so surprised to see her last time with her charming old clear skin again. But I don’t know whether it work shall on for you. So better consult a skin doctor.
Avatar n tn However cystic acne needs to be treated. Cystic acne is the most severe form of acne. Cystic acne affects deeper skin tissue than the more superficial inflammation from common acne. Since they are severe, so systemic medications are usually required. The treatment consists of topical and oral antibiotics, tretinoin, oral contraceptives in females and Intralesional corticosteroid injections. Very severe cases may need excision and drainage.
Avatar n tn I've had bad acne since I was 14 and I'm 23 I have been through everything and the only thing that had worked for me was accutane which I stopped taking at 16. I have acne on my face, neck, back, shoulders and chest. Can anyone reccomend anything? By the way I'm black with oily skin and I know difference meds work well or not with different skin types.
Avatar n tn Cocoa butter is good but there's this thing called BB cream which formula comes from Germany where dermatologists prescribe it to heal laser skin surgery because it has soothing and skin-regenerating properties. Famous South Korean actresses then began using it for beauty purposes and since Asian dramas are huge all over, a craze was born. creams is suited for all skin types and are targeted to those who have sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Avatar m tn I have been through two cycles of Accutane and also went through three sessions of levulan laser surgery. I have also tried about every over the counter acne medication available; acnefree, clearasil ultra, proactive, klear action, and neutrogena advanced solutions just to name a few. I have tried different methods of shaving my face because my face seems to get worse the next day after I shave. I have also tried eating a healthy diet with no soda, no greasy food, and no junk food.
Avatar m tn Treatment consists of topical treatment, steroid injections, surgery, cryotherapy, radiation therpy or laser surgery. I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation as treatment is diagnosis specific. 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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Aside from medications and laser treatment, there are many possible management for cystic acne such as dermabrasion, phototherapy, and even surgery. Cystic acne treatment usually depends on the severity, and it is best that you discuss the management plan with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Seeking another dermatologist's opinion may also be helpful. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn How is it that people can have reconstructive bone surgery but getting rid of pores is impossible?
Avatar n tn I have one on the tip and two right next to each other on he upper left tip, which is also dented from the pimple. One of those two holes are the size of two pores combined. For some strange reason, after my pimple went away, the skin around there was a little sore and two pores swelled. After the skin got a scab and peeled off, the two pores became one. That's where one from the upper left came from. I spend an hr. each day just to cover it up so it won't be as noticeable.
4743342 tn?1358644793 I'm told laser treatments can help this. Laser is what caused this in the first place !! (Never had acne or pimples in my life). Was this caused by technician error, I was told I was perfect candidate for laser hair removal, fair skinned etc.Within days of the treatments I had raised red areas on my chin with scabs. Treated it with Neosporin but when scabs fell off I was left with deep pock marks. What can I do about this?
Avatar f tn Hello, For acne, oil and dead cells gettrapped in a pore and then they block the duct and mix with bacteria to cause red pimples. The causes are stress, bad cosmetics, hormones and birth control pills. Just keep you face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day.Pat it dry and do not rub it.Avoid picking or pressing the acne.You can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face.
Avatar n tn Hello, Usually it is recommended not to have any cosmetic surgery like dermabrasion, laser treatment or plastic surgery while on accutane. Regarding the surgery for fibroadenoma, I would suggest you to discuss it with your daughter’s surgeon. Accutane may increase the chances of post surgery keloid formation and so I would suggest you to discuss this point with your daughter’s surgeon. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn I have just recieved my 2nd chemical peel for acne and still have yet to see any change. The strange thing is, I only brake out on my face. The rest of my skin seems uninfected. Please let me know if you have learned anything from your own experiences.
