  1. Hiya ScarFace! Your photos are a little blurry, but I think I can make out some very mild scarring. Scarring is when the skin is either indented (atrophic) or raised (keloid). I think you have a few ice-pick scars, and maybe one or two boxcar scars. But, from what I can see it's not severe at all. Small white bumps that go away very quickly sound to me like milia. This is mild and nothing to be super concerned about. Milia will rarely cause scarring because they aren't around on your skin for long, and don't penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. You need to keep in mind that your skin will beextremely sensitivefor at least 6-9 months post any oral Accutane. Skin turnover is quite slow, and Accutane is a strong drug. If you rub your skin and it gets red easily, don't be alarmed. It's super important for you to be putting sunscreen on every single day, regardless of whether you're indoors or outdoors, or if it's sunny or not. Personally, I'd give your skin more time to fully bounce back from your last round of Accutane before you look at tackling anyscarring. May I ask what your skincare regime is like? Because that's the key to better skin in the interim!
  2. Severe Acne Scarring- Where to Start?

    Hello Cfralic! I used to be a big poster here while I was going through my most intensive treatments. I agree with Fazix in that we can't really see your scars in that photo. If you're comfortable in posting a close-up, under the harshest lighting (or the lighting you think makes you look the worst) then we might be able to give you some pointers. For me, I have had lots done. I won't bore you with the details, but I can tell you it's been a long journey but well worth it. I am 3 days post Dermaroller session as I'm typing, and have been getting this done for the past three years. I actually stopped posting on this site after I noticed a massive change in my scarring, from this treatment type. I've been wanting to get back on here and help others, if I can. So feel free to shoot me a PM if you like, or simply reply here! P.S. love your hair colour!
