I'm sorry this news is upsetting to you- I didn't mean it that way. I think it's positive that things improve! And don't get me wrong, I did see improvements starting at a month after use of PG, but it does move gradually. The small improvements are what have gotten me through. Eventually my skin got to a point (maybe after 6 months of use) where I finally felt like I could relax about it.
I would rather use a gentle product and wait for good results than use a 'quick-fix' that is potentially damaging or gives results that don't last. I've also learned to deal with the fact that my face will never be flawless again.

And again, I'm sure there are other products out there that can help, and maybe work better. You have to find what works best for your skin. PG seems to give the best results consistently, especially for new damage. If you're already using it, maybe give it a month and see what you think. I hope you find the right products for your skin and heal quickly!

It's okay ladybug. I'm just trying to work my way through the emotions. I just got back from a vacation in California and had to stop using the PG because I started to breakout! What next. I have never broken out on my cheeks. Normally just on my jaw. I went to see Dr. Heng while I was there and she recommended that I start using a retinoic acid 0.25% I believe, and a glycerin soap. I went and picked up the soap and started using that, haven't tried the retinoic acid because I'm scarred. I'm still breaking out though so I think I might try to stick with my biore salicylic acid face wash even though every dermatologist has told me not to. It's the only thing that keeps me clear. I want to start using the PG again but I'm hoping my skin clears up a bit. It's so exhausting! I feel very discouraged because after being on the plane all day I came home to what looks like worsening damage. More acne scarring. It will be two months for me on the fifth and I literally want to die. I was just getting used to the damage that was done and now it seems like it just gets worse and worse.

I'm going through the same thing acne on my chin and jawline not going anywhere ): that the only good part left in my face and now it will be scarred as well so damn angry. I use obagi salisylic acid as well but it only dries up the acne but I can feel new ones forming under skin all the time.

I have waited over three months to see if my pill will kick in soon but unlikely it will do much as I haven't seen any difference since I started it.

My derm wants me to go on accutane which I don't want to do i would rather try milder antibiotic as they have helped before.

Pg I used over three months didn't see much difference but I want to use it another three months just have to order some more.

Why did they tell you not to use salisylic acid, because of damage?

I was apprehensive but I figured my skin was the best on that area wasn't riddled with such a deep holes as the rest of the face

Leonasoun, Although retin-a may help you down the line, if you're only two months out from damage, I think it's too soon to use this product. You're right to be concerned as it may cause more problems and I believe it's wrong for Dr. Heng or any other derm to recommend it so soon. Skin needs a good year of babying to heal- no harsh chemicals or procedures.

I haven't used PsoriaGold, so I can't give a review. I have been using Biafine which has worked out for me. My inflammation was quickly controlled by oral steroids, so I ended up not needing the PsoriaGold, but it was definitely under consideration.

I agree with Erica, repairing and protecting the lipid barrier of the skin is important for skin health. That is usually the primary concern in the early months of injury (and controlling inflammation/pain). Maybe Dr. Heng thinks your skin is ready for Retin-A. However, Retin-A is pretty harsh, even in the milder prescription strength and in the stronger over the counter versions. If you think your skin is ready for it, an option to Retin-A is a more gentle over the counter retinoid. I think skinmedica and skinceuticals has a "beginner" version of retinol for sensitive skin. It takes longer to see results, but it is a less invasive approach. Some dermatologists recommend starting off with an over the counter retinol and gradually progressing to the prescription strength retinoids. You might want to discuss that with Dr. Heng.

Thanks guys. I definitely agree but was second guessing myself because she prescribed retionic acid 0.25% and when I told her my concerns she said to use it once a week. So I was taking it into consideration. Still not sure. I wish I could take oral steroids but I am breastfeeding and thinking about trying to wean. I also have alopecia areata which is an autoimmune condition where my body attacks my hair follicles an it falls out, but I only had one incidence and my hair grew back long ago. I am hoping that isn't going to keep my skin from healing. I have been searching for something that would mimick prednisone that I could take while breastfeeding to no avail. Siana sent me the classic psoria gold so I will give that a go.
As far as the salicylic acid, I have had derms tell me not to use it because it's too harsh and one told me I can't use it while breastfeeding, while another told me it's okay because I wash it off my face. Every derm will tell you something different so idk.

What is biafine? Would that be an option for me two months out. I thought I saw somewhere it's only good immediately post laser?

It's most effective when started early on. I used it six weeks out and it did help with the redness. I had ablative laser.

Everyone's skin reacts differently to a product, so there is a lot of trial and error to figure out what is best for each individual. I was lucky the first thing I tried, helped. Biafine is a prescription ointment that has been used in France for over 25 years (available over the counter in Europe), but just recently approved for use in the U.S. It is used for burns, skin grafting, radiation dermatitis, diabetic ulcers, etc.... I looked at the prescription booklet that came with the ointment and it says consult with your doctor if you are trying to become pregnant, pregnant, or breast feeding. It appears that few studies or no conclusive studies have been done for safety in pregnant or nursing women, so it is not recommended for those groups unless the benefit outweighs the risk. It looks like Retin-A has the same risk/benefit caution as Biafine. There is a possibility that it can pass through the breast milk to the baby, even though that risk may be small. If it was me, I wouldn't take the risk if pregnant or nursing unless there were a lot of studies with reliable data on safety.

I started using Biafine two weeks after my IPL. I am nearly four months out now and my skin LOVES Biafine. It does clog my pores somewhat, but it does a good job of calming and hydrating the skin. It is supposed to be helpful in all stages of the healing process, so I think it would be beneficial at any point in time. Supposedly, it is a beauty secret of celebrities and they buy gobs of it while in France. Biafine provides deep dermal hydration; 41% of the water content reaches deep into the skin about an hour after application. It does sting and causes a bit of redness for a couple of minutes after application, but that sensation quickly goes away. I think others on here have also used Biafine. As with other products, it helped some people, but not others.

Recently, I started using oxygenetix during the day and I like that too. It contains a lot of aloe vera. It is available on dermstore.com and at many dermatolgists/plastic surgeon offices. It does seem to be helping with the clogged pores. Oxygenetix is often recommended for post-procedure, but from what I gathered reading blogs, many women continued to use it long term. It is also used for rosacea.

A lot of people on here have had good results from PsoriaGold. I just didn't try it because Biafine was immediately available to me and I was happy with the results. Who knows, if I started out with PsoriaGold, I may have been just as happy with it as well. Since I am past the inflammation stage, I need products that will help the texture and hydration of my skin. I believe PsoriaGold can be helpful for the inflammation, but I am not sure about the texture.

Leonasoun - after I was damaged I went to see so many well known dermatologist. They recommended many strong creams (rex retinols) and procedures (ex. LED lights, dermaroller). I was so afraid and in panic. Thankfully- I did not follow the doctor´s advices because of help and advice from this forum (they are the real specialists…) . I think laser/IPL damage is very different from other skin issues and I believe many dermatologist still do not get it. Of course I do not know what would have happened if I did do what the doctors adviced me to, but to this day my skin can still not tolerate harsh products. I agree with Erica- baby the skin naturally is the best help (including staying away from chemical sun screens).

Hello! I am a new member. I had IPL done about 3 months ago, and my skin has been extremely sensitive and I feel like I started to notice my skin texture change with larger pores on my cheeks, and strange lines.

, I decided to try psoria gold (for about 2-3 weeks now). I found it to be somewhat irritating at first, then my skin got more used to it. I used only the sensitive at first, then ultra. Ive been using it morning and night. Anyway, my skin is starting to look yellowy orange around my mouth, nose, and a little under my eyes. Could this be the psoria gold? I don't use very much, and always with a little water. My mom thought it looked like I used a self tanner in those spots. I've also got a little irritation/rash on my chin and upper lip.

I've also been taking tumeric supplements, but not more than is recommended.

I've stopped the PG to see if the color / rash goes away.

I think it could be the psoria gold. When I used tumeric in face creams it turned my skin yellow
