    Hey mate.

    I have been on virtually all acne meds. The last one was isotretinoin (roaccutane in other countries). It is an orange and white rugby ball looking pill. Worked wonders, except when I came off it the acne came back.

    I have been Primal for about two years and off those pills for just less than that. I have had no problems. Thankfully I had no scarring as every time I got a whitehead or spot, the meds seem to clear it up.

    In the initial stages I used a product called PanOxyl (varies from 2.5-10 or 15% in strength). That works wonders for removing scarring as it basically does what chemical peels do but over a longer period. You can also get isotretinoin cream/gel which was really effective.

    I personally advise again any medication unless necessary but in this instance you could benefit from PanOxyl or Isotretinoin gel (i think the latter requires a prescription, at least in the UK).

    Also, try using coconut oil as a face wash. I use it everyday. Once I have washed my hair, dry the face and apply the coconut oil. Massage in for a couple of minutes. Leave it on your face and wash the rest of yourself then come back to the face and just wash off the coconut oil. Works wonders in the shower without the use of harsh exfoliants. If you're having a bath you would have to use an exfoliant or the coconut oil is a pain to take off. It also leaves the skin smooth.

    See if that helps you mate. Speak to your dermo about POxyl or Iso-gel.

    Best of luck mate.

          I would recommend Physician Skincare's Non Invasive Facelift.

          A non-invasive treatment that can remove years off your appearance
          Sun exposure, hormonal changes, aging, and repeated facial movements (smiling, frowning, squinting) can impact the skin over time, resulting in wrinkles, loss of facial volume, and a tired, sunken appearance. A Soft Lift addresses all of these concerns without the anaesthesia, discomfort, and extensive recovery time associated with invasive facial surgery.

          What does a Soft Lift treatment involve?
          The non-surgical facelift, also known as “Soft Lift ™”, combines Botox Cosmetic with dermal fillers to address multiple signs of aging at the same time, for an overall refreshed appearance that is subtle and natural-looking. The treatment is quick, safe and easy, with most patients returning to their normal activities immediately after.

          A non-surgical facelift works on two levels. Botox Cosmetic, a purified protein, relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. When injected into these muscles in tiny amounts, it effectively smoothes frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

          Dermal fillers are injectable gels that instantly restore facial volume where collagen and hyaluronic acid have been depleted. When used in combination, Botox and dermal fillers create a full facial rejuvenation effect that can remove years from your appearance, with virtually no recovery time.

          How long will the results last?
          The treatment typically takes less than an hour to perform, and is completed in one session. Our doctors use an individual fine needle for each Botox injection site, and most dermal fillers contain lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, which minimizes any discomfort. Topical anaesthesia may also be utilized, particularly in more sensitive areas such as the lips.

          Results from the fillers are instant as facial volume is restored and will last 6 to 12 months or longer. Botox effects begin to occur within several days, as lines and wrinkles gradually diminish. It’s recommended that Botox treatment be repeated every 3 to 4 months to better maintain the overall result of a non-surgical facelift.

            I think tooth paste would also help.
