Re: Tazorac Tales
Apr 28, 2003
Hey Emma!
I started this for us (and all other Taz users too!) You mentioned in the other topic about starting a Tazorac thread. I hope this works.
I am on the .1% cream. This Saturday will be two weeks. So far, I like it. I have had a problem with acne since about 5th or 6th grade with lots of outbreaks and blackheads and always oily skin! I should have went on accutane back then but now as an adult (30) I only have excessive oily skin, blackheads and clogged pores (ewww!) and a few pimples. Well, the derm gave me a 30/10 chemical peel (not sure what that means but something to do with the strength of acid) and started me on the Taz. I liked the peel, I even noticed that some of my superficial wrinkles were softened. This Saturday, they will give me another peel. My oil has decreased but I still have blackheads but I know I need to give it some time. I have used other retinoids like Differin and Retin A. The Differin had no effect but the Retin A was awful! It peeled and dried my skin but yet I was still oily. I hope this Tazorac works for me! Oh, and I put it on every night.

Hi girl :)

I hope the taz works for you. I was on retin-A too, and I liked how it made my skin look, except it made it peel, and oily. It did make me look younger though.

The taz should get rid of your oil, it did for everyone else so far. Even blackheads suck at our age--my skin isn't awful, but it isn't great either, and by my age(32), you can't really take it anymore. I hope it works for you.

Yeah!! The Retin-A made me oily too AND very peely/flakey. Well, I'll keep you posted on how my skin progresses. I go to my derm in a few days and I am going to ask her about Smoothbeam Laser and if it helps with acne and scars, etc. They also do cosmetic work there too but they don't try to "sell" you.
