Hello hello Saintetienne!

First of all, welcome to the boards!

Secondly, I personally think you'd be an excellent candidate for the Dermaroller. Reason is that I can see some rolling and shallow boxcar scarring but no icepick... is that how you'd describe your skin? Great that you've got your active acne cleared and your skin tone looks lovely, these are big pluses! Dermarolling doesn't really do much for icepick scarring, that requires a different modality, but the rolling and boxcar would do well!

Before I try to sell you on the Dermaroller though I should point out that the slight pinkness that you have in places is a good sign. Means that your skin is still healing so there is a chance that your scarring will improve a little over time even with you doing nothing. However I can see some deeper marks on your jawline and chin area which may not improve as much by themselves.

To me it doesn't look too severe (is it the same on your other cheek?). You have very fair skin, like me. If you choose to go with a laser then you might find that the post-laser redness will linger for a long time. My last laser treatment was over a year ago and I can still see the outline of where I was treated.

The Dermaroller is a professional treatment done in a sterile clinic. If you're from this part of the world I can recommend the esthetician who has been treating me. :D If you want to know more about it feel free to probe me for information. I like to label myself as knowledgeable in this treatment as I have had 5 sessions and I have read as much as the Internet has to offer about the treatment.

Also, I take it you're wearing sunscreen everyday (being just off Accutane)? If not, get on that asap! :)

xx

thanks for your reaction! :)

I'm really happy with the results i booked in 2 months. I started with around 50 red marked scars on both cheeks. Im really proud of my left cheek because it improved so much since january. i will post some pics of it to!

I think i have all scars combinated on my face because i suffered from acne for 6 years (i'm 17 now) .

At the moment i'm using Honey (every morning and evening) and egg white (once in 2 days) for my scars. I'm moisterizing my face with my fathers products (ssssst it's really expensive) . i'm exercising much (lifting and football) and i'm relaxing every week with friends. I have a good life but i had a better life before my scars.... I would be so happy if i reached 40 % or 50 % of improvement. I think my skin will look better when the red marks are completely gone. Can i use dermaroller at this moment because my skin is improving daily and i'm off accutane for like 2-3 months now is it save? I never had problems with a sunburned face. Is it a must to use sunscreen? Is it a good idea to do microdermabrasion to give the overall skin appearance a better look?

thanks for your reaction again!

I'm sorry but I can't offer you any home remedies. :( I don't believe in them. The only "home remedy" that I do is massage my face each night when I cleanse but that's about it. Hopefully others can give you more suggestions.

You are young.At you age your best bet would be to begin from inside out.

I mean improving internal enviroment to affect the external tissue.

Try big amounts of water.

Onion/beets juice will help you.

No need for treatments for now. You could do though some mild derma roller sessions

to induce collagen.

Cayenne pepper,imroves circulation rapidly .

Comfrey has big amounts of bioavailable allantoin.

Fresh ananas rubbed onto scar can eat scar cells due to containing live proteolytic enzymes(bromelain).

There is also a story about a singer that had deep scars at young age,and got rid of them by rubbing

molasses as well as taking them internally.

There are many things as you can see.There are much more.But i would go slowly and fundamentaly

by begining from inside out.

Ice pick scars are the hardest to treat.

You options are : tca cross, fractional co2, microneedling, dermabrasion (not microdermabrasion) excision and possibly subcision. You should do your own research on all the procedures to figure out the risk/reward benefit and which one would work for you.

No such thing as home "natural" treatments for acne scars. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wasting your time.

You have the same exact type of scarring as the user here and you should read his thread:

You are in India.

I have heard there is a really good oil made of egg yolk,something like oleova.you

should try it.

Also ther eis this in india: 9. AGNIJITH. This is a topical burn-scar treatment from India.http://www.padanjaly.com

You dont have to read from someone to heal scarring,cause you dont really know

in what situation their body is.

Internal matters just as external.And most of the times the external tissue is a reflection of whats going on internally.

Re beets juice they are powerfull,so i advice you to read this protocol.

I believe in it,i just dont have the will to buy these vegetables and also to buy a juicer.

http://robertvon.com/mbp.html

It claims to remove the scar tissue in many months-2 years.Who knows.We have to try it first.

Stop waiting to here from anyone,and begin to apply and treat ,keeping always in mind

what might hinder your ability to heal.

Luck.

Do NOT dermaroll until at least 6 months after you've stopped using Accutane, it can cause additional scarring!

The article doesnt mention to use it topically.Instead it is about a protocol

that begins from 1/4 cup beet juice/asparagus and gradually scale it up to big doses of 1 cup of beet juice.

I would like to use it topically though.

I like also the staining effect since it reminds me lugol's iodine,which is an effective stuff.

WOW, that was the longest post I have seen here. That person achieved improvement although he was treated at a very low level. For people who can tolerate It I recommend high level Fraxel Re:pair. I have had 5 Re:pairs and it has changed my life completely. I will not hesitate to continue to do Re:pair, but my next move is a facelift as I am older than others on here.

you have mild scarring. I think you can definitely wipe these out with a series of laser treatments and or dermabrasion.
