Acne Got Worse After Isolaz Treatment - Seattle, WA

I had moderate acne as a teenager and young adult, then went on Accutane and have had clear skin since (I'm now in my early thirties). Recently, I have experienced mild to moderate breakouts, so my dermatologist recommended I try Isolaz.

I went in for my first treatment 3 days ago and I can honestly say my face hasn't been this broken out since I was a teenager! My forehead is covered with tiny red bumps, and I now have large pustular acne along my jawline and cheeks. Plus, it looks like my blackheads have actually gotten worse in my t-zone.

This is so disappointing. It sounds like I'm in the minority as far as my experience with this treatment goes, but for me, it was definitely not worth it. Would love to hear about alternative treatments that have worked for others, esp from those who have also not had success with Isolaz.
