Hi Dr Lam,
I recently had my first significant acne breakout, after being on Accutane about 3 years ago, and had two pretty large zits on my forehead. Now, I seem to have one pretty large depression and another few minor ones. I would say there are 3 depression areas of concern now.
My question is this - the zits went away about 1 month ago. Is it too soon to start worrying about the lasting effects of them and coming in to get them worked on?
I have been putting some $20 scar reduction cream from Walgreens on the areas a few times a day but so far it doesn't look like its done anything. The area is still red and the depressions look the same.
Also, to work on something like this, is it possible that the consultation and the procedure are done on the same day, since I'm from out of town? I also have a few chicken pox scars, that I'm very self conscious about, that I'm also interested in having work done on.
