  1. Scarless Healing

    That's good news, thanks for posting the link acastro!
  2. Scarless Healing

    Another year, another opportunity for scarfree healing!
  3. Its Time to give Up

    Yeah, that's mostly in your mind. Once the redness goes away you are left with some minor indentations... you mostly need to figure out how to deal with the overblown mental reaction you're having to this.
  4. Scarless Healing

    There's no need to get mad about this. If you don't think it's worth your time then don't "show up".   I just love science so I post articles and information that I find around the web just in case anyone else is interested. I'm not getting my hopes up every day that the cure is right around the corner, and I suggest you do the same or you will constantly be let down. I'm sorry that life isn't fair. Look at all the people on this thread that have suffered! I say just appreciate all the brilliant, hardworking scientists that are working for us all over the world that provide us hope!   One thing that I have taken a keen interest in for the last year is genetic engineering using CRISPR-Cas9. This technology allows us to read and write genes into plants, animals, and humans. And it is going to explode in the next decade and beyond. There will be a day, hopefully within our lifetimes, when skin diseases that cause inflammation and scarring will be eliminated by destroying the mutated genes that cause them. In addition we'll modify our genes to allow natural, complete skin regeneration (our skin already knows how to completely regenerate on its own but is prevented from doing so due to inflammation and scarring).   Here's an example article: http://www.statnews.com/2015/12/07/crispr-mouse-models/
  5. Recell Spray On Skin For All Scars

    I'm pretty sure this is a scam like most modern treatments...
  6. Treat the big one on your forehead with subcision. I would recommend not treating the others at all, you will probably end up making them worse!
  7. Scarless Healing

    Why is the top excision 1 cm longer and wouldn't that affect the outcome???
  8. Recell For Hypopigmentation Burn

    Doctors take advantage of so many desperate people... it's sickening
  9. Recell For Hypopigmentation Burn

    Yeah Recell is a total sham I think, which is why it still isn't FDA approved.
  10. Recell For Hypopigmentation Burn

    I too have hypopigmentation. I've tried ginger for 3 months and topical Bimatoprost with Fraxel and had no improvement whatsoever.  There was this announcement earlier this month but it's based on the Excimer laser which I was told doesn't work. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/deka-medical-announces-break-through-in-treating-hypopigmentation--the-excilite-u-106879373.html Honestly I doubt anything will improve hypopigmentation at this time. Trying a procedure at this point is an act of desperation and a waste of money (especially if you are short on cash). I'm sorry this happened to you...
