Smoothbeam experience.....

I finished my second smoothbeam treatment about a week ago. So far I have not seen much in the way of improvement and at times the acne gets a little worse. This is dissappointing because the nurse said that the appearance of new lesions would decrease after the first session. The first session was relatively painless but the second session was very painful. I used the topicaine both times but the second time I applied it myself and the power of the laser is increased with each treatment so i'm sure that caused the increase in pain. My acne is border line severe and my dermatologist reccommended accutane or this. I still have faith that this will work seeing that I have two more treatments. My dermatologist is the head of dermatology at Johns Hopkins and he seems to expect good results so the treatment must be legit for some people at least.
