that makes sense mate. might also stop the drying effect that comes when using iodine alone. as for any overall improvements, i dont see how there can be any. both ingredients on their own have had little effects in almost everyone on this site. vaseline definitely doesnt reduce scarring more so than any other moisturiser and the effects of iodine is still being proven. people who have been using iodine for many months still are not sure. i remember when i first started using iodine, the initial effect was more misleading. my skin was preparing to peel and that temporarilly hid the majority of the scars i treated. once i peeled, they appeared again.
i used to use vaseline when i was pretty young. when i used to get pimples and picked them, id apply vaseline to help them heal. little did i know its very comogenic and gave me more acne than i wouldve had otherwise. as i got older i used to pick, lay out in the sun and apply tonnes of vaseline. overall i wouldnt recommend anyone here to use vaseline, due to its potential to clog mores, cause more acne and scarring and make your problem worse. i purchased a moisturiser about a week ago called Complex 15. it had the highest ranking in the review section for its inability to clog pores. i found after using it i broke out too. so maybe moisturisers themselves are terrible with acne.
sometimes these kinds of threads worry me. people try things and create threads with products that have little scientific backing. whilst its great people comment and all, it might be more worthwhile to put our efforts moreso towards the treatments we know to work. im sure most people like myself dont want to be here forever and it seems easy to become list between the treatments that do work and random threads dealing with nothingness.

The regeneration tisular by diode , it is something that works (or not) as seems for witness, and not for quantity of diode.
Only to have precaution.

How much would a couple of drops be in milligrams?
Iodine taken internally can cause acne flare ups.

Iodine clogs pores....and so would vaseline...so you would end up getting more breakouts.
Iodine does improve scaring, i've tried it, but its very temporary and actually stuffs your skin texture up overtime if you overdo it (been there done that!).

Betadine, and I saw results immediately. Im not sure if the skin was just micro-swelling from the Betadine? or the actual Betadine was doing it. The temporary nature of its improvement suggests it might just be microswelling.
All in all, this is another useless method imo. Snakeoil as they say.

Actually I had a small facial wound I was nursing and I noticed, as a byproduct, the positive temporary visual effects on my existing scars. So purely accidental.
