Acne solutions - help!

Hi, I'm 20 and have an acne problem still!

It's a medium form of acne, nothing severe by medical standards but enough of a problem to put a downer on my day. So a few months ago I thought I'd do something about, I looked up Blue Skin Peel, PPX Laser and other acne laser treatments. I've saved enough for them and I really want it done, one thing holding me back; I don't know anyone who's had it done!

Because it's new, I'm not 100% trusting it and just would be more reassured if anyone here, who's had it done, would tell me what it involves/how it helped/has it worked/price etc etc

Thank you in advance peepz! xoxo

Re: Acne solutions - help!

I wouldn't do it.
The laser if not done correctly could burn your face.

I would first recommend an antibiotic for your acne.
I would recommend going to the Derm and asking for either clindamycin or Doxycycline.
Either one of those Antibiotics did wonders for getting rid of my face and body acne.
I would recommend 150MG or 300MG of clindamycin if you get that.
If you get Doxcycline, i would ask for 100MG.
You can also use a good cleanser, toner and lotion with salicylic acid.
salicylic acid works good for my skin.
For body acne you can get the neutrogena clear body scrub which has 2% salicylic acid.
