I'm 24 years old and I have been suffering from Acne since I was 17. I have taken all types of acne medication including Accutane twice which helped me a lot with this problem. I recommend people who have been suffering of major acne problems for many years to try Accutane. Eventhough, this medication have a lot of side effects it's really the only medication that can help you, just follow the doctors' instructions for ex: don't drink any alcohol while taking it and go every 4 weeks to do your blood test to check that all your organs are ok. After taking Accutane my face very rare breaks out. Now, my only problem is the scars. I have done 4 Fraxel laser treatment for my acne scars with a doctor in Warren, NJ. I have noticed a lot of improvement on my scars, they are smoother, lighter, and less noticetable. I will do my last treatment in 2 weeks from now. I think all the people that suffer from acne scars haveto be realistic, the scars are not going away with a few treatments of laser, it's a process which require several different treatments to get best results. I'm very please with the results of Fraxel laser, now I feel a little be more comfortable about myself. My face looks much better!!!
