  1. Well here they are. Note that I have scars on my neck along with my cheeks. Also note that this is the last time I'll be checking in for a while (or ever) so I won't be answering any questions. Take a look at em and be glad yours aren't as bad. Peace out
  2. @kristyan, ok a deal's a deal. I'll post by end of the week when I have a good time of day to get it at its worst.   @il90 I know I wish I can, but one would have to get a REALLY good lawyer to have any traction against these fraudsters. There were so many times I wish I could sue to get at least half my money back, but by then all the legal fees wouldn't have made a difference except towards a moral victory. I really wish some people could 'walk a mile in our shoes' just to know what it's like...maybe then they'd stop with the lies and false hopes they -more or less- promise to give you.  
  3. Kristyan how bout, I'll do it if you do it. I'll try my best to get the worst angle. Kinda funny cuz usually people try to get their best angle for a pic haha. 
  4. Hey,

    My scars are moderate with a few deep ones, but it covers my face so overall it is, idk...it sucks. Don't really care to post pics though. Sorry.

  5. Dudley, just curious what you hope/expect with plastic surgery regarding your scars(?). Well sht, hopefully it all goes well and we look forward to seeing those pics in the future. PS: Living in Los Angeles, I've seen my fair share of lizard-lipped women and older gents with almost alien-like faces due to plastic surgery (Kenny Rogers comes to mind). Be careful and I truly wish you the best with the procedure.
  6. @Dudley, I truly believe the majority of us here do our homework through multiple sites, instead of solely relying on this one...since many threads link to another source anyway. I always had multiple tabs open when doing my homework, and I noticed many were related via shared links. TBH for all the years you've been here and touting the effectiveness of Repair, I'm surprised you never posted any pics. If my treatments were a success I'd post and support the treatments I've had, but that's just me. Of course I never did because it was pointless due to its unsuccessful nature. Well on a positive note ever since I stopped caring I have been more public and going to job interviews. It was nice to make small talk with a cute woman while waiting in line at a cafe, but I made nothing of it for obvious reasons. Seems like the world is a little better, cute cashiers making chit chat and little things of that nature. Still, I just want a job again and make some money so that's my #1 goal. Tomorrow is another day so wish me luck as I wish you all the best as well ~ 
  7. @FriskyCreek well my scars aren't quite AS severe as Ernestoria's, but yeah my face is oddly red with pale yellowish tint. I'm half Jap/White, so my skin is white with a yellowish tint. I don't post pics bc I really don't feel like I should or care to...or want to put the energy into. Trust me I have issues unlike those who have a few scars on certain areas of their faces, or those with slight scarring. I guess I look like CollegeBoy84 with more severity BUT with even a better body than his lol. @DudleyDoRight I went full throttle with my last 2-3 Mixto's, so yeah I went all in on the level of intensity. I did go thru CollegeBoy's post but from the outset his acne scar issue was never much of an issue to begin with. But thanks. @kristyan yes I've done it ALL lol. Thanx tho. @sts54 thank you so much for all the kind words. It's been a hellacious road for me, but I've come to terms with my issues. I'm done. I'm over it. I'm done trying to fix an unfixable issue. I've spent way too much time and effort and $$$$ all to no avail. Now I just want to live and be content so that's what I'm doing. But I truly do hope you find some reprieve from your current fight  
  8. Thanks for all your feedback, I really wasn't expecting it...don't know why. @il90 Thanks for taking the time with your words, I appreciate it. Yes I do all the things you do @Ommmmmm haha yes trust me I've done it all. Thanks tho. @Robertitoo believe it or not I did try the suction method, but after a few weeks it really didn't do much for me. Glad it worked for you and others tho. @blahblah.. I wish you all the best since I'm done trying. @FriskyCreek have you seen the posts made from Ernestoria? He posted pics a few years ago (no longer posts) and mine are similiar (slightly less deep), but couple that with permanently discolored skin tone and it looks much worse. @TempleOfDoom, I'd trade places with you in a heartbeat if all I had were scars on my temple. If I could cover my scars with a woolly hat like u I'd be fine... trust me you're not that bad. I'd have to wear a ski mask to cover my scars so just know that, some of us here on these boards actually ENVY you. @panicjack Doctors who post these before/after pics are CHARLATANS. They should be sodomized daily for their willingness to fool the public like that. Yes, my scars did improve like the pics shown, but after a few months it all goes back to normal. Those pictures only show the initial two weeks from the treatments, which ALWAYS look smooth. TRUST ME, doctors know this but they keep having you come in for 'touch ups'. I've lost all faith in them. @Kristyan like I've said before I have all types.  I'm not saying this to discourage anyone looking for options, I'm just saying from my own experience NOTHING has worked. I've always had abnormally sensitive skin growing up so that may have something to do with it.
  9. PLEASE NOTE: I am only giving my personal experience here, and for me NOTHING has worked. Hi everyone, Since 2005 I've gotten professional help in dealing with my acne scar issues, but it wasn't until 2013 I decided to go very aggressive, since nothing else seemed to work prior. Here's a quick rundown of when and what I did since 2013 (all at Dr. Rahimi's office):  Jan 2013: Mixto May 2013: Mixto, Ulthera October 2013: Mixto, Subcision, prp, Iridex Diolite March 2014: Mixto, Subcision, prp, Iridex Diolite November 2014: Mixto, prp, Pelleve March 2015: Venus Viva, prp, subcision June 2015: Venus Viva All these procedures, plus creams, at-home peels, etc. have cost me over 10 grand. I'm not rich by any means, which is why I'm in credit card debt like you wouldn't believe considering I still have to buy food, gas, etc. A little background below: It's been a few years since I last posted here. I think I created an account in 2008, and ever since then I've been coming here for advice. Anyway, I used to be a good looking guy but I suffered from horrendous acne breakouts in HS that lasted into my mid-twenties (I'm 33 now). These days I still carry the shame of acne in the form of acne scars (really bad, ALL types). My face and neck are riddled with scars and jakked skin tone. The burden of my face has been a life-shattering affair; it forced me to drop out of college, quit work, lose all my (real) friends, lose passion/drive/confidence/purpose...can't talk or look people in their eyes, and so on so forth. I'm currently single (of course) and unemployed because I can't, for the life of me, take the pain of another person look and laugh at me. The only solace I used get was from my dog, but he passed away last year. Since then, I've been volunteering fostering shelter dogs, but I digress. DudleyDoRight has been on these boards for a while now, and his aggressive Fraxel procedures have obviously worked for him since he is always praising the treatment (along with a good doctor). But I feel like I've done the same, going very aggressive with laser treatments (although I went the Mixto route) and THE ONLY THING I SEE, to this day, are my old scars reshuffled into a more grid-like pattern, since that is the way the lasers work. It also created new surface scars. I'd also just like to say that, even though Dr. Rahimi has good bedside manners and seems like a good dude, I'm upset at the huge cost (money, time, foiled hopes) these visits and treatments have been for me. After every post-treatment visit he praised how much better my skin looked, but the hard truth is that I MAY have gotten 5% better results overall. These days I am running on thin ice because I have no money left, my rent is overdue, my bills are overdue but I just can't work anymore. I've become numb most times over how unreal my life has been. I took a huge chance with laser treatments but alas, it hasn't produced the results I hoped for. Good luck to the rest of you
