Have you considered accutane? nyc new york ny

I know the word "surgery" makes it sound like this is a final solution to your acne, but if you are still developing acne lesions it is worth considering accutane to get the "long term" solution you seek.  Discuss this with your dermatologist, but I think doing surgery before getting control of the acne is putting the horse before the cart.  Why spend money on surgery when new acne lesions can still arise and create the need for even more surgery later?  Accutane shrinks the oil glands that cause acne over a period of about 6 months.  After that, most patients have only mild acne, if any.  Note: you absolutely cannot get pregnant while on accutane and you should wait 6-12 months after finishing accutane to consider any type of resurfacing
