Re: YAZ users - ???
Jan 13, 2009
[QUOTE=savemeplease;3848270]Hey Arelias, I'm really glad it made you feel better. I know during the first 2 months that's all I really need to hear. I eat really healthy too because I've noticed when I eat sugar and unhealthy foods I break out on my back and chest. My food intake doesn't control my face as much since it seems to be mainly hormonal. I had taken a saliva test that showed my hormones to be way off balance. That's probably why all those other products you used failed to work, because they can't balance out you hormones. So i really think Yaz should do the trick for you. Let me know how it goes for you :) I wish you the best.[/QUOTE]

Yeaaaa, I know, I've began to realize that my acne is hormonal because I've tried everything. I'm just sick of it! SO hopefully I can make it through this month and see improvements real soon. I cured my chest acne using Neutrogena body wash with 2% salicylic acid and I put 5% benzoyl peroxide. it worked like a charm.. i still have some bacne and I'm hoping my back and face will clear as the YAZ kicks in. Thanks so much, I will let you know. thanks again.

[QUOTE=savemeplease;3882200]Thanks guys!

I went to the derm. today and I got a glycolic peel (30) to help with the surface marks. I also got a sample IPL (Intense Pulse Light) because I had been worried it would be painful, but it was very tolerable. So I'll see if that helps with the redness in that area she did, and I'll probably get that done later on.

Yaz has improved my skin this month (4th pack), although it wasn't very consistent and still not too great, just 'improvement'.

I had also been taking doxycycline, but that hasn't seemed to be working at all so im switching to Bactrim tomorrow. It's a more potent antibiotic.

Hopefully that will do the trick, and I hope you all the best.[/QUOTE]

Hey savemeplease,

The third month on yaz has been the trick! My face has improved dramatically and I only get about one small pimple. But, the only thing is that I still have bad scarring so I went to a Medical Spa and got a micropeel ( consisted of a 20-30% glycolic peel and cryogenic therapy). I was planning on getting a microderm but the aesthetician recommended the peel and then the microderm later. It has made my skin dramatically smooth and fading my scars! It also did not make me peel and make my skin incredibly dry! I'm so happy and my confidence has boosted compared to a couple of months ago. So, hopefully I can finally defeat my acne and continue to feel confident! Doxycycline works only for a short period of time and sometimes u might need a higher dose in order for it to work. Let me know how the peel and light therapy worked.
