I did a series of 11 micros starting with one a week for 5 weeks and then monthly. After that series, my doc recommended that I switch to peels to see greater benefits. I now go about every 6 weeks for a peel. I use mostly the products they recommend. They are a bit expensive but I trust them (doc & aesthetician) to guide me to using the best products for the results I am trying to achieve. I have seen a great deal of improvement in my skin texture, lessening of acne scars and fine lines. There are a lot of beauty salons here that do these procedures but by going to an office that is in a medical facility I am able to get more aggressive treatments. I wish I had taken before/after photos from when I started a year ago to now.

PM me if you need more info.

Okay, I just spoke with my friend Christine' who owns 2 skin care studios and has a Doc in her studio...also tanning. This is what she said Quote: Fact: While a tan may make blemishes and scars less apparent, many acne treatments make skin sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) rays. In addition, suntans cause the skin to increase sebum production to heal damaged skin, causing more acne. In addition I found on www.healthcentral.com Quote:In some animal studies, benzoyl peroxide increased the risk of tumor growth. But, there is no evidence that it is a problem for humans.


vosab...as with any medical treatment you should always check with a medical professional to discuss the possible side effects of any treatment.

Neon, with due respect for your 'facts', I think as with tanning 'facts', some experts cite 'studies'(which we know are untrue) as a scare tactic to further their own agendas--(support PTAF)

Not a problem, just info I found, not my own knowledge.

I use Clinique Facial Scrub for oily skin, and it has made my face softer, more even toned. I love it. They have the absolute greatest line of products for oily/acne prone skin. I have the soap, the facial exfoliating scrub, the acne gel, and the tonic/rejuvinator to wipe skin with, also the lotion, which also has a mild spf in it... My skin looks much younger.. Go there and let them do a skin analysis, that is free....

Gina, It has been my experience that you usually get the best results when you use all of one product line on your skin as they are formulated to work together. Sounds like you have found one that works great for you! Sometimes I have bought things over the counter at Walmart or drug store and it wasn't good for my skin type and actually made my condition worse. It does pay to know your skin type and use products specifically formulated for it.

I have never tried Clinique but it sounds great and I am glad it is working well for you.

omg, you all are really scarying me..

I used to never have acne.. In august I started getting alot on my face. Since then ive been using products with BP in it.. I was actually at one point using something that was 10% before. Im using Neutrogena Advanced Solutions right now that has a 2% BP in it. It says avoid the sun.. But well i love tanning and I probaly tan 4 times a week.. I only use bp at night..

So do you think using BP makes it where my tan isnt as dark as if I wasnt using it..

I wonder if I should stop using Bp, since i dont have any acne now I just want to keep my face clear..
Because I cant stop tanning my face.. it has to be dark.lol

im so confused

how about using the BP products at night?

your skin is more receptive & in a 'healing' mode when you are asleep, I had a similar problem with acne from birth contol causing me to turn to BP products -

try using it just at night, after you have tanned in the daytime and on days whenyou are not going to tan. It can also make your skin drier & 'grab' sunless tanner, making dark patches when you have applied it - it is a littel tricky but you will find out what wrks for you -

good luck!
also - the derm is a waste, esp if you are paying for it yourself & dont have insurance . . . unless you have very serious acne, teen acne they will suggets BP and washing with gentle cleanser anyways, or upsell you . .

if the BP is finely milled, doesnt matter what the cost is . . $10 from the drugstore or $50 from your derm+ pharmacy fee - itsi the milling and percentage that matter

Okay...great I had not read this post until today and now I am going to have to go do some research. I have been dealing with acne since I was born (or at least it feels that long) and I have tried everything....seriously EVERYTHING....I have even been on 3 terms of accutane with no luck, the stuborn acne just kept returning. I was at my breaking point...frustrated and disappointed. I am 25 now and did not have horrible acne but I always had at least a few on my face at all times. So in despair I decided to jump on the Proactive bandwagon that so many people (customers, friends, etc.) recommended to me and to my delight it actually worked. I have been using it for about 2 months now and this is the first time in my teen/adult life that I can look in the mirror and have flawless skin.

So with all that being said.....this also is concerning to me....seeing I have been down the road of many acne medications and treatments and have no luck to have finally found something is a miracle in my eyes. Now I am sitting here frustrated and concerned about this product line and its overall effect on my skin/health.

What are everyone's thoughts on my situation...seriously.
I need some help/opinions/support on what I should do....obviously I am going to look into all of this more but I need some advice.

Thanks
