My personal experience: I am currently 28 years old, and I have had mild to severe acne since I was 17. I did a cycle of Accutane when I was 22, which cleared up my acne for about 18 months. More recently, I have taken an oral antibiotic (Minocycline) in combination with Clindamycin gel and Tazorac. Putting all that medicine on is no fun. My skin was dry half the time, no matter how often I applied moisturizer, and I still had periodic breakouts that drove me absolutely nuts. When I heard about Levulan, I immediately got a treatment. My skin was bright red to the point where it was embarrassing to be in public for about three days. Because I wore goggles during the treatment, the area around my eyes remained the natural color of my skin. This contrast between this area and the surrounding red areas magnified the redness of my skin. When I wore sunglasses, it was not nearly as noticeable. The top layer of skin starting peeling off about 50 hours after the surgery, and it was completely gone 90 hours after the surgery. For the first 48 hours after the surgery, tons of little whiteheads surfaced all over the treated area. I'm not sure if these would have been future zits. They were easy to get rid of; they practically popped themselves and didn't leave any marks whatsoever on my face. On the fourth day things looked better and by day five I was fine to be in public.
On day five I noticed something else: my skin looked GREAT. It was so smooth and fresh looking, I couldn't even believe it. There were virtually no blackheads on my face, and the scarring which had been bothering me for years was gone! I was hoping that Levulan would clear up my active acne, which it did, but I did not realize it would make my skin look so fresh and young. I had good skin!
Since the treatment, my skin has been relatively problem free. I do still get occasional pimples, at a much lesser rate than before the treatment. My only regret is that I didn't find out about Levulan years ago. If I ever do another Levulan treatment, I will take before/after pictures to show on this page.
Is this treatment for you?
If you have read this far, in my opinion the answer is yes. If you have any form visible acne that has been recurring for longer than 2 months, you should try a Levulan treatment. Over time, even mild acne can leave scars and be damaging to your self esteem. Levulan Acne Therapy Aside from 3-4 days of down time where you won't want to go in public because your skin is red, there are no major downsides to the treatment.
Levulan Blue Light Acne Therapy will clear your skin up for 12-18 months. No more zits, pimples, or blackheads. Levulan will also smooth your skin and remove or mitigate scaring. In my opinion, if you have even mild acne it is worth doing a Levulan Blue Light treatment. You won't want to be seen in public for three to four days, but that is a small price to pay for 18 months of vastly improved skin.
I'm not sure if this method of acne treatment is commonly available accross the United States. I am lucky to live in Scottsdale, Arizona, a city that is definitely at the forefront of the cosmetic world.
The bottom line is that Levulan will make your skin clearer than medication with fewer hassles and side effects.
In case it's not clear from my story, I believe that Levulan is a revolutionary acne treatment that will become extremely popular in the next five years.
