My full face Mixto CO2 results SUCK & at 2 months--getting worse. No improvements to original issues + I'm BREAKING OUT SEVERELY in ways I have never seen. Pre-laser, i didn't have active acne--just dark spots + cheek scars. This is my 1st laser & the acne was immediate. I'm now covered in big painful zits, NEW marks/scars & producing TONS more oil. For the past month I've been on antibiotics+androgen blockers to help but it just seems to get worse...DEPRESSING!
When Will This Laser-Induced Acne Go Away?

Laser induced acne is likely a result of the healing balms used
The increased acne you are reporting is usually due to the thick ointment used for the early healing process. You may do well to consider a short course of antibiotics and microdermabrasions or light chemical peels to break the cycle.
