After suffering from acne breakouts in nothing but...

After suffering from acne breakouts in nothing but cystic form, trying every medication over the counter and through the pharmacy, and after dealing with my painful breakouts long enough, I decided it was high time I do something about it since I became immune to one of the antibiotics, tearing up my stomach through me wanting to go through even more antibiotics, and just tired of having a straight up pizza face. I contemplated Accutane for many reasons, and I think it was the fact that if I do nothing now, I will have many repercussions later and may have to undergo a lot of procedures to get my skin at least looking normal. Throughout my first and second month, acne got much worse. I refused to pick my face though because I did once, and it bled for hours. On my third month, my skin magically became clearer, but not all of the way, and it was not until month four where I was able to see my face that has been hidden all of these years! :D I am now finishing up month five with absolutely nothing on my face, chest, or back. My pores are much much smaller, I am no longer in pain- it's been incredible. Since my main and only concern with starting Accutane were the side effects, I will go ahead and share MY OWN side effects... Nose bleeds (some lasting at least 45 minutes), persistent flaking and dryness of the skin, SEVERELY chapped lips (never ever in your five-six months be without it), dry hands, chapped knees and elbows, some joint pain (probably just from past injuries), minor lower back pain, drowsiness... It does work though. I plan on jumping back onto Retin-A Micro after my treatment to keep my results where they stand, if not improve them. My biggest go-to's however were Creme La Mer, Aquaphor, Blistex, and a ton of deep conditioner (my hair got super dry, so honestly, I never shampooed it).

This office was fantastic- always understanding, always there when I needed a question answer, and always on my side. I've been doing business for at least 5 years now and plan on continuing business until I cannot any longer. :D
