I had very severe acne in 1983. Fortunately, Accutane had just come out and I was finally put on it. It was early in its development, so I had a foot grow out of my head, but the acne went away . What I was left with is severe scarring as you will see from the pics. In 1992 I had dermabrasion, fat transfer and collagen injections with no measurable improvement. In 2003, I had 5 sessions of Smoothbeam with similar results. I, like many of you, was almost resigned to just living with it considering the options. Which brings me to my last attempt, silicone injections.
I have attached 1 picture here that was taken in September of 2008 before the first silicon injection (the final pictures are down a few posts). As of August 21, 2009, I have now had 6 sessions with extremely talented Dr. Lam of Plano, TX. I am very happy about my results, to say the least.
I understand the misery and hopelessness, trust me. I know this may not be the answer for everyone, but hopefully this will be the answer for some of you. I wish you the best in your search.
