  1. My Story & Accutane Journey So Far

    How are you doing?! I would love to get an update!
  2. Day # 189

    Hang in there! I took 200mg/day and it probably wasn't until 8-9 months until I saw improvement. I still breakout, but no longer get cysts. I wish it was a miracle drug for me, but I'm happy I can at least put cysts behind me.
  3. Spiro Risks & Side Effects

    Hey! I like your blog. Just wanted to say I actually lost weight on Spiro; about 10lbs without changing anything. It was an unexpected, but very positive side effect for me!
  4. Finally acne scar success ? With silicone

    Thanks for sharing! Do you have any pictures?
  5. I need your expert opinions!

    Thank you both for taking the time to respond! I really wish I could train myself to stop being so hyper-focused on this area of my face and just take it all in as a whole. I think the fact that the scars represent emotional trauma in my life is what makes me so miserable about seeing them everyday. It feels like if I can fix the physical trauma, I can work towards healing the emotional. I will definitely start conservative with treatments. Thanks again!
  6. I need your expert opinions!

    Hey guys, I can't believe I'm posting a picture of my biggest insecurity on the Internet for the world to see... But I could really use some of your valuable input on what treatments would be the most beneficial for my type of scarring. I feel the collective on this site is likely to have more knowledge in this area than a lot of physicians out there. I have a consultation tomorrow to explore my options and I would like to make an informed decision. The picture is not great, I apologize! But I can tell you I have a ton of boxcar and ice pick scarring all around my mouth, but the boxcar scarring on the left is what really bothers me more than anything. If my scars could cast a little less shadow, that would be grrreeat. Thank you in advance for taking the time, I'm sure you are probably so tired of answering this question over and over.
  7. Terrible Deep Scars

    There is definitely potential for improvement! Honestly, they really aren't that bad. Most just look like large pores. I'm sorry to hear you're suffering though. I know how devastating acne scars can be.
  8. Post Subcision Results w/Picture

    Thank you for sharing your progress! PS - you are gorgeous, scars or no scars.
  9. BB cream or foundation for pale but yellow skin?

    I think Skin79's BB cream, the orange label, is really great for fair skin with yellow undertones. It's also great for acne prone skin. Most BB creams seem to have a gray or orange undertone, so this one's my favorite.
