I don't know if this will work for you. Given you have been on Accutane 5 times. But I have done a lot of research on the Blue Light with Levulan treatment. You might be a perfect candidate for it. The Blue Light kills the bacteria that causes acne. But what is unique about this treatment is the Levulan. They put this substance on your face for an hour (you basically marinate in it) and then go under the Blue Light. The Levulan was originally used to treat skin cancer. Later it was found to have beneficial effects on acne. It actually shrinks the sebacous glands permanently. It permanently alters the functioning of the gland. The research indicates that this treatment is like being on Accutane without the side effects. Plus it helps get rid of red marks and hyperpigmentation. This might be a suggestion for you. I am actually going to see a Plastic Surgeon today about this treatment so I will keep you posted.

Plus, I know how you feel. Also, the Accutane may be causing your depression. Something to think about. It is known to alter your moods.
