Accutane doesn't: always clear your acne. If hormones are a big cause of your acne then birth control pills or spironolactone works better. I would not do laser until your acne is under good control. see dermatologist ...Read more

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Yes, no, yes, maybe: Dermaplaning over active acne is not a good idea; it increases the risk of infection & scarring. Hair grows back normally, since dermaplaning is basically a very close shave. Blackheads are plugged oil glands, and the most basic lesion of acne, but blackheads by themselves are not acne per se. Dermaplaning will probably not make blackheads worse, but it is not a treatment for blackheads either. ...Read more

My dermatology doctor diagnosed pcos by sonar only , do u think there must be any other examinations to be taken before prescribing birth control ?

Not appropriate Dx: PCOS is characterized by 1) irregular periods, 2) high androgen levels (in blood), and/or 3) many small ovarian follicle cysts on ultrasound. These are the Rotterdam/ ESHRE diagnostic criteria, the Androgen Excess Society has slightly different criterion. With respect to your derm, you have NOT been properly diagnosed at this point. I'd inquire further. ...Read more
