Home Means… Finding the Cure to Adult Acne

To put it bluntly, acne sucks. It’s both painful and not pretty to look at. I’ve been battling acne since I was 12 years old, and recently underwent an extreme procedure to try and end the fight once and for all. Check it out!

While it has been difficult not wearing makeup and still experiencing breakouts, I’m trying to put the negative thoughts aside and focus on the results I did see: because we burned a layer of skin off, parts of my face are the smoothest they have ever been! The doctor said it would take four to six weeks after the treatment to see the full results. Even though it has already been six weeks, I’m hopeful that I will see some change in the next three weeks before my next follow up appointment.

Thank you to everyone who has followed along so far. I’ll be posting another update after the next appointment.

  1. Alexandria,
    You are absolutely the most beautiful and refreshing person in media I believe I have ever seen. The world needs more of what you bring to the table. Thank you for sharing your stories and all of the wonderful stories from our community. You are the best! 🙂

    1. Aw thank you so much. This truly brightened my day! I appreciate your support and viewership as we continue to embark on this blogging journey. Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  2. I can totally empathise with you. The best results I’ve had was a course of Accutane. The only problem is Accutane is tightly regulated, especially for women bc it can cause serious birth defects in pregnant women. I saw a 100% improvement in my acne. Wikipedia has an excellent description of acne and all its treatments, which are numerous. Acne is like depression, you have to keep trying different treatments until you find the one that works for you. Acne is thought to be 80% genetic affecting 633 million people world wide (Wikipedia).

    1. Timothy, I’m sorry you’ve struggled with acne as well. I have what’s called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, something many women suffer from. I’ve recently researched diet and how that plays a role in impacting our hormones. Right now I’m seeing success and am hopeful this is the answer! I’ll be doing a followup post all about it. Stay tuned!
