You're point is a credible one regarding legal actions, however you're post in no way implied that. Just be careful with what you say and how you say it, we do after all, want to foster positive energy rather than rude or dismissive remarks at a scar support group. Also regarding your comments, the filler is approved by the European version of the FDA (and will soon be in the states in about a year's time), and like I said, credible doctors in wealthy areas of Southern California highly recommend and refer their own patients to the clinic.

On the one hand you have a treatment (silicone microdroplet) which even doctors say is highly effective for acne scarring. However the conseqences of you having a problem don't bear thinking about, maybe years down the line. In your face as well. I personally don't think that the bad stories you have heard about silicone is because of not using the pure stuff. I have read an article where a doctor was saying he was now having to deal with problem patients injected by other doctors who used the pure stuff. It was these very doctors who were crying from the rooftops about how problems were solely from the use of non pure silicone. Their patients. My own hunch is that the problem is silcone, not any technique or type of it. Just silicone.
But what a decision for people with proper scarring to have to make. Either waste our lives here at acne org trying bullshit treatments that don't work or get silicone microdroplet, enjoy life and just hope that it neither migrates later in life or fks up our face permanent at some point.
Horrible dilemma for anybody considering it. I'm sure we would all like the results, just no thank you to silicone.

I think there will always be problems some have with the silicone allergies but there have been many with the silicone in their faces for 30 years with no probs. It's a risk but apparently a small one from my research, it probably won't ever get FDA approved for the cosmetic reasons because the risk does involve such harsh consequences.

Does anyone here know where the original poster got this done? I apologize if I missed it somewhere in the thread. I'm assuming she doesn't post here anymore. Hell, I wouldn't either if my skin was all better. lol.
I actually noticed she was last active on 10/20/2006. Very mysterious to find this one out. Either she's just here to help others out or she has once again become distressed over her scars, making silicone ineffective. Rebellygrl, where are you?? Please post!!

^^ I saw this info the other day and Pmed her to ask rebellygirl if she still pleased with her results. I haven't heard anything back yet. Will post if do.
Thanks a bunch. I also pmed her over a week ago and also have not heard anything back. I don't want to say I am smelling a rat here yet. I really hope her improvement has held up, and would love for her to come back to the boards and post about the microdroplet again.
