Has anyone tried this before?
I've had bad acne since I was around twelve (nearly seventeen now) and i'm sick of it. I've tried everything to get rid of my acne, which is one my face, back, shoulders and neck and nothing has worked. I saw a dermatologist at my local hospital for a few years and she prescribed me tons of medication for acne, and with some of the medication my skin would clear up a tiny bit, but would always go back to normal after a few weeks. Basically, after trying out all the medication she prescribed she decided there was noting else she could do for me, so I don't see her any more. Anyway, a year or so ago I watched a story on the news about some new laser procedure that was being used to "cure" acne, I tried to forget about it hoping the medication I was on at the time would clear my acne up instead. Then a week ago I read a small article in a magazine where this girl had the laser procedure and the before and after pictures showed an incredible difference. So naturally i'm interested in finding out more about this procedure. If someone could please answer the following questions:
1) What is involved?
2) What are the dangers of having this treatment?
3) How long does the procedure last for?
4) What are the average costs of the procedure?
5) Anyone have any good sites where I can find out some more information?
Off to do some googling now,
