  • I'd rather be dealing with wrinkles rather than acne at my age.

    Dear Dr. Ordon,

    At age 50, I had a mini facelift followed by a laser procedure, I am now 71. 20 years ago, the laser that was used was such a deep penetrating laser that it looked like I had a 3rd degree burn all over my face. Well, not all over because the doctor did my forehead, but went just to the outer corners of my eyes and down to my chin ending about 3" from my ears, in an oval shape. My face blew up to the size of a large pumpkin, which scared the hell out of my cousin, who was caring for me, but the doctor said that was normal. This also gave me a two toned skin as the lasered area was much lighter than the rest of my face.

    As a teenager I never had acne and prior to the laser, as an adult my skin was beautifully clear and normal, not oily not dry. A couple of weeks after the laser I woke up one morning to find what I thought was measles. The portion of my face that had been lasered had totally broken out, and to this day I struggle with having to control acne. That area is always practically dripping oil. I have been using Benzaclin and retin A for the past 20 years and recently started wiping my face a couple of time a day with witch hazel hoping to dry up the oil, to no avail.

    I also cannot use any makeup to cover the blemishes as nothing will adhere to the lasered area. I'm so tired of having to constantly be treating the acne and not being able to cover it up that I hate to go out. At this poit in my life I'd rather be dealing with wrinkles and not acne. Is there any treatment that can be done to dry up the oil?

  • I just really hate my body and can't do anything about it . I love your show and how wonderful you make people feel about themselves..

    hi Dr. Ordaon, I know you might say that i am to old to worry about what I look like, but I am 59 and feel and do things like i am in my 30's . I wanted to tell you that My dad died in 1991 and my mom just couldn't or didn't want to be alone so i moved her in with me in 1994, I took care of her for 10 years. I didn't date anyone all that time,after my mom died I met a guy and thought i would be with him forever, he ended up being abusive and i had to leave. I have been divored for almost four years and haven't dated anyone and have had 7 surgerys in these 4 years so that is why i can't see anyone because my body looks so bad , i just can't bring myself to get involved with anyone and i want too. I am just so ashamed of how my body looks and wish i could do something about it but can't afford it... I see your show all the time and see the work you do. i wouldn't let anyone do anything to me but you... think about it .. please I love the work you do and how you treat people and i love that. thank you for listeningmoreless
