      Tammy. how much was the treatment?

      I have really bad acne scarring too. When I got to college, I started breaking out like crazy - horribly cystic acne, the whole bit. I still don't have perfect skin and it KILLS me to see the scarring. it might be worth springing for this in general, not just for the wedding.

      tasha, i had a horrible gigantic cyst the size of a golfball on my temple. i could not sleep on my side because it was too painful...i had to get a patch of my hair shaved off and the cyst surgically removed...it was no joke how bad my acne got...for about 9 months.

      the combination package was about $2500 (6 IPL, 6 microderms, and obagi/retin a) but i think you can get it cheaper now. you may just want to try obagi and see if that will work for you...? obagi alone is about $250.

      even though it was expensive, i kick myself about not doing it sooner...my skin looks great now and i could have saved myself a year or feeling unhappy with my skin.

        when you call places, ask if they have any promos going...alot of times they have them but don't always tell people that call in. also, stay away from America Laser Centers. they are a rip off and the staffs not that knowledgeable.

          So I went to the derm doc today and had my consultation. The plan for me currently is to treat my current acne issues (I swear, since we got engaged my face has gone crazy!) with Retin A, Benzaclin, and possibly oral antibiotics if needed. I am also getting Microderm Abrasion and an Acne Facial every 4 weeks. By the way- had my first microderm abrasion today- if anyone has never had that done, your skin looks and feels so nice afterwards, I thought it was definitely worth the $$.
          Then, once that is under control, we're going to either do Laser, Obagi, or some combo, we'll see....Thanks for the tip!

          sarah, if you can, push your DR to derm obagi, laser early january...it takes min 16 weeks for obagi to go through all the cycles AND you will need 4-6 laser treatments and those have to be spaced 3 weeks apart...

          so your face is ready and recovered for your wedding...you want to get off retin a week before going to mexico

            Sounds like a good plan Tammy. It's so nice to have someone who's already experienced this!
