$350 PER TREATMENT - need up to FOUR treatments over 2 months.
I have PCOS induced acne and rosacea. It'll never 'go away' but I can manage it. I tried everything else and this worked.
I had three PDT treatments. Each time I was incubated with the acid for 2 - 3 hours. Then I was lasered with a Vbeam pulse laser to fix my rosacea. Then I was baked for 5 mins under a 630 - 660 nm red light.
My face was sore, puffy, angry and peeling for three days after. Don't plan on going out, or being pretty. You have to stay INSIDE for three days. If you have big acne under the skin they will literally bubble up to the surface and then pop themselves (charming, I know). But then your skin will peel like a snake and be renewed.
It has to be repeated at least once every 12 months. Maybe a full course every 12 months.
Note: I was told you can't do it with cold sores. Ask your doc for the preventative medicine to stop cold sores and take it before and after.
