Laser Goddess is welcoming AviClear. It is personal. Beth's story- I had some acne during my teens. When I reached my 20's, I would have several new cystic pimples every week. I was always popping, picking and covering up with make up. I never left the house without makeup, there was dark spots everywhere. I took courses of antibiotics, topicals, retinols.I even took birth control pills that made me feel horrible. Nothing stopped it.
After years of this suffering, I finally broke down and took Accutane. I call it the chemotherapy for acne, it is a five month treatment. It made me severely depressed in the beginning (there was no black box warning for suicide then) . I had muscle aches, constant dry lips. My skin broke out worse than ever. For months, I had pimples that never healed. The corners of my lips were cracked. It was so uncomfortable. Two years later, the acne came back with a vengeance. I was so disheartened that I needed to take it again for another five months.
I am personally so happy that people don't need to go through all that suffering. Cutera is the company that developed this laser. They have been one of leaders in lasers. I actually bought my first laser from them, 20 years ago. The company was called Altus then and the laser was the Coolglide.
