Hi all, I am new here!
Background info: I am a 28 year old female, and have been fighting a losing battle with acne off and on for 17 years! It had cleared up for the most part, and then after having my son, 4 years ago, it has been getting worse, and worse…
I finally decided to stop “waiting it out” and sought out a skincare center, to try the much publicised “acne laser treatment.”
They advised me to try the Obagi line, with Retin-A, along with bi-weekly Yag Laser treatments.
The first few weeks were very exciting, and it seemed as though it was all working wonderfully.
THEN, week 6 came! My whole face just sort of exploded! 🙁
In fact the breakout was so bad that I had to take a break from the laser treatments…
Now, I at week 10, and the flare up seems to be over for the most part! However, I now have a ton of dark purple marks left behind, and my skin texture and color is very uneven! 😡
I am planning to start back up with the laser treatments next week, hopefully that will help…
I was curious if anyone else had gone through this while on Retin-A?
Or, if anyone could share thier experiences using Obagi, Retin-A, or Laser treatment?
