  1. Sudden scarring on cheeks, old accutane user

    Oh god. Yes candida exist but not in the sense that you believe. It is part of our biology. If you had problems with white blood cells they wouldn't attack in the first place. It's like you are adding together different scientific studies and then going "see snakes gives birth to rabbits" it makes no sense. However, this tactic is usually adopted by holistic 'doctors' that need something to back up their pseudo science. To each their own I suppose though. Also, who ever said google was a substitute for actual science? You are actually telling me that I need to google something and the more hits I get must mean it is true! For everyone here, listen to your instincts. I'm out though. Yes. Probiotics can help. That is true, just make sure you get a good one like Udo's choice with at least 45 billion in every cap. Add lots of hyaluronic acid too which might help. Sometimes though it could be stress and other things and it might resolve eventually on its own. Good luck! And your skin is fine to be honest but I understand that it might bug you.
  2. Sudden scarring on cheeks, old accutane user

    Oh my god there is no such thing as candida and leaky gut, it's pseudo science at best. It doesn't even deserve a proper argument. It could be a ton of things but honestly, no her gut is not leaking nor is candida out of control (candida exists in all of us and the only ones with systematic candida - overgrowth are HIV patients who have a lowered immunsystem). Honestly, I'm tired of all the bullshit you are spreading with low immunsystem or whatnot if you have acne/scarring there is absolutely nothing that proves this outrageous claim of yours. Acne is actually the body responding, if we had lowered immunsystem then we wouldn't even get acne. (I'm not going to respond beyond this - because frankly I can't be bothered to start another argument with you - but I wanted to offer another point of view before people start starving themselves to get rid off "candida" which is actually part of our biology and completely normal) It could be a lack of hyaluronic acid, perhaps get some supplements (good ones like Solgar).
  3. Alitrude, how are you feeling now? Did you have any improvements? I'm going in for February for my first one with the same doctor so please let me know about your experience I'm really curious!
  4. Unfortunately, it didn't. Not many showed up and as of now I don't have the time as I have uni and work. But, I do encourage a get together. If anyone can host please post here!
  5. I know it sucks. But honestly I know my first treatment I had some really weird things happen for the first month. Please put it aside for now. Message me if you need to talk. I have been there.
  6. Did infini destroy my skin?

    Yes. After procedures like these your skin can do really weird things! Try to understand that these things are scary and so there is a lot of anxiety involved. Try to take a step back and evaluate your skin in a month or two (preferably three) to see what the real effects are. Yes, it can temporarily trick you into thinking it looks worse (perhaps swelling in some areas etc - sometimes your skin has moments when it depresses like that but may resolve in the end). However, why did you do INFINI? What did you pay for that? The only thing I found is worth the money at this point is 'mini subcisions' with saline injections (50 pounds every other month) or micro-droplet injections of silicone (a bit more expensive maybe two grand for three sessions). Large oral dose of HA would probably be good to take everyday too since I know your think your skin is being a bit volatile.
  7. Yes. There is definitely hope. However, you should never feel embarrassed! Feel proud because you have to be stronger than other people. Take this time to reflect on why you feel embarrassed about something you had no control of. I am confident that one day you'll get what you want. Start researching subcision/saline with subcision/ dermpen/ single needling/ TCA cross. And, the thing that might do it all: micro-droplet silicone injections but do try to exhaust every other option before because silicone might be a huge risk as it is permanent. Good luck. And, remember there is a lot of us and we all live with acne scars. And, I for one am not embarrassed about that. I am just me and some parts are "better" and some are different (like these scars). But, that's okay. It's okay to not look like everyone else.
