So, I've been looking at this site for about 12 years, back when I was in high school and I had bad acne but it didn't scar. But in the past 4 years, after being on birth control twice, Dan's BP treatment and accutane (finished last year) I still have acne, plus all the acne that I had on accutane scarred me. Oh, and I'm starting to breakout again, so I'm thinking of going on accutane again, but I feel that I have joint pain because of my treatment, so probably not. So now every time I look in a mirror I get depressed, so I might as well document my depression.
I just got a VI peel today and I thought that maybe this will help some shallow scarring. But the scarring that I hate the most happened after my accutane treatment. I have rolling scars on my chin that look like a big "X". Plus I have tons of boxcars.
After this VI, I might continue to do some self peels. I have done needling with a tattoo artist but it hasn't helped much, though I only did 2 sessions, and each session covered a different area. I tried needling myself but I can't get scabs like hers. I also bought 100% tca but all this scar treatment is so emotionally draining.
Everyone loves pictures so I have posted one of me frontal view and left side, I want to save my space.
