Despite the fact that I generally come down with a major case of "the pimples" before every major occasion in my life, I was very fortunate to steer clear of any nasty last minute surprises leading up to my wedding day. To be honest, this was my biggest concern, second only to our wedding attire and rings not making it across the country with us on the plane.
Lately, I haven't been quite so lucky and have sought professional help from a dermatologist. I was lead to believe that there are no quick fixes for pimples - today, I found out otherwise. In addition to being prescribed some systemic (pills) and topical treatments to prevent breakouts, I was also offered an mini injection ($10 per injection). Before you get too scared, let me explain.
