Other Acne myths made by Dermatologists include:
1. "ACCUTANE DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE" - this misleading message only refers to the brand name for the generic drug Isotretinoin. Isotretinoin is Accutane. In 2009 the brand name was changed to Isotretinoin after $33 million was payed in lawsuits to acne sufferers who developed irreversible internal damage
2. "AT REGULAR DOSES, IT'S A LIFETIME CURE" - only if you continue to take it for a lifetime! This medication is not a "cure" it's an acne symptom suppressor. Low - regular doeses are proven to be ineffective in severe acne cases
3. "I BELIEVE PEOPLE WHO FEAR TAKING ACCUTANE ARE MAKING AN EMOTIONAL RESPONSE VERSUS A RATIONAL ONE - Naturally if your profession is limited to and thrives on writing prescriptions for acne medications every day then your idea of a correct response would be biased
4. IT'S THE CLOSEST THING TO A CURE YOU CAN GET" - said every Dermatologist ever. Dermatologists operate within a very narrow scope and have limited knowledge about the root cause of acne or consideration for a patients internal health.
If you are an acne sufferer considering Isotretinoin
I urge you to learn the latest science on the root cause of acne
It may change your perspective on drugs

Goodmorning loves! It’s been over a week since I last posted due to me being extremely sick but I’m finally feeling feeling better today! This is my skin atm in natural light and I’m actually starting to notice my scars slightly fading away and that gives me hope! I just ordered a vitamin C oil and I’m going to test it out for some time before I recommend it to you guys if I see some improvement/difference in my skin! This was my first week being on the 60mg and so far so good! No crazy new side effects which was what I was very scared about so fingers crossed it stays the same! As for the side effects I currently have; tiredness, some joint pain but it’s rare, dry skin in the morning, and headaches. 💕
Cystic acne anyone? Hannah Elizabeth Page says.........😮😮👏👏❤️❤️ “Soooo this is extremely embarrassing for me to post. BUT, I hope I can help someone 💕
I’ve struggled with cystic acne since I was 13. I have taken everything you can name, went through treatments that were nightmares, cried because my face hurt so bad! I was on Accutane for ✌🏼 years!
I’ve always been self conscious about my skin, I have deep scars, redness, uneven tones, expression lines and more.
I have been using a simple morning and night serum for 35 days now and these are my results!
I look forward to putting it on each day! It feels so refreshing 🤗
I can now go out in public WITHOUT makeup and not stress about someone seeing me! 💕
You can now get this serum for $89 😲 cheaper than me!

I have bad skin, well not so much anymore but it’s a constant struggle. I grew up poor and we didn’t have money to take care of my skin so I ended up with scarring. So I am constantly looking for ways to improve that. For a long time people said it wasn’t possible to have good skin again. Tho you say I can’t, imma figure out how I can! After meeting the right people my skin has improved by leaps and bounds! And I’m happy to share my journey with all of you. However I’m still so scared, people have bullied me for it and it hurts. But I can’t change the skin I’m in I can only adjust what I do to help it be the best it can. -This is an infrared treatment to help boost collagen, reduce inflammation, and clear up acne. I’m testing it to see if it works and will let you know if it’s worth it! 😊😊 Thanks for reading and joining me on my journey! ❤️❤️❤️

DAY 2 💕
I won't lie, I woke up feeling tight but didn't think it looked too bad.
Then I rinsed my face carefully with just water and a soft flannel and found small flakes of skin coming off, which I thought would be a good thing.
The skin underneath where the flakes have come off (mainly around my chin and nose) feels SO smooth but still pink/red.
So, I put on my mascara and a layer of Light Soothe, then about 20 minutes later tried to apply my tinted SPF from yesterday. Fail.
It wouldn't really rub in and clung to my dry patches, so rinsed that off and applied Avene Cleanance SPF50+ which stung a little bit and left a slight white cast (at this stage I'm thankful for that because I feel so fucking red still)
Very close to tears I left for work feeling the most self conscious I ever have done - see my stories for more updates. It doesn't really show the depth of redness on my skin in these photos and videos.
I'm so excited for this journey but I'm struggling today.
What’s your skin trying to tell you? Your diet and overall health really does play a role in your skin condition! From cutting out diary and diet fizzy drinks, to adding pre&probiotics and digestive enzymes, there’s so many way you can change your skin by changing some daily habits 💞 Happy Monday x

. 🔹Acne scarring is a common, frustrating condition that we see in our office regularly. Although there is no perfect treatment modality, thankfully there are a growing number of options for management🙌🏼. Fractora @inmodeaesthetics is a device that delivers radiofrequency microneedling to the skin where fine needles and radiofrequency energy are used to induce collagen formation in the skin reducing the appaearance of acne scars and fine lines. ✨
After clearing his severe acne with medical therapy, our client pictured above completed a series of treatments with fractora where a noticeable decrease in acne scars was appreciated over the course of his treatment sessions.
He was very happy with his results and so were we 😊🙌🏼
It’s weird because even though my skin has pretty much cleared up from that left photo (September 2017) I still look like I have acne. I still have tons of red spots on my cheeks and jawline from all the scars. I still am self conscious about my skin even though today, it’s clear (probably will break out again tomorrow for saying that but 🤷🏻♀️). I still don’t feel super comfortable leaving my house without makeup on because of my scarring but ya know what? That’s okay.
I do my best not to give a shit about what people think or if they stare and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. But either way it doesn’t matter to me because I have found peace. I know that my skin doesn’t define me, my skin doesn’t mean I’m ugly or less worthy or any of the other nasty stuff I used to tell myself.
I am much more comfortable now than I was then but that doesn’t mean I am more beautiful or more worthy than when my acne was at its peak. And I won’t be more beautiful once my scarring fades either. It’s okay to want to have clear porcelain skin, I do too but that doesn’t mean that until then we can’t show ourselves love and accept ourselves for who we are. That doesn’t mean we have to put our lives on hold.
How has acne affected your life?
