I'm 23 now, and yeah I've been considering it exactly for that reason.. I'll never get these years back! Just trying to weigh the pros and cons. I've heard so many horror stories that I'm afraid of coming out on the short end of risking those long term side effects I've read so much about. So glad it worked for you though. Keep us updated on how things are going!
Also, I noticed the same thing with BP. My red marks seemed much darker, and they lasted FOREVER. I even had the wrinkles around my eyes too. Scary stuff.
WOW. You look amazing. Did it even take care of scarring and discoloration, or are you wearing makeup in those last pictures? I have a huge problem with marks from old acne - mainly red dots rather than indented scarring. Congratulations! You're making me want to try this.
