Hi everyone,

 

Anyone on this board have their scars filled in over time? I've had acne since I was a teenager and went through two rounds of accutane which kept the cystic acne away. Now at 26, I no longer have cystic acne but left with a lot of scars. I used to have rolling scars, blackheads, and some congested pores. Then, I tried laser resurfacing without any luck of improvement. I think it gave me more scars instead because now I see ice-pick, box-scars, different skin depth in certain areas. My question is.. does anyone with acne scars experience that the scars naturally fill itself in over time? If so how long would you say it take and how much of filling in happened? I've been feeling really down because of what I see in the mirror lately.

Sigh, i know how you feel...
Really do and it sucks.
Anyways, ive read people's scars filling in after a year or two. For deeper ones, it took more years obviously. But some people's scars dont fill in but maybe that's because it's too deep or they arent good healers (genetics). Nevertheless, even deep scars fade a bit over time.

Although, for old people, it only gets worse cause their skin's ability to produce collagen decreases and their elasticity, etc. decreases.

So you're lucky your young.

My skin did not look as bad when I was 18. Then I became obsessed with my looks and my skin in college. I feel as though many things I did contributed to the way my skin look today. If only I knew what I know now. My skin before the laser looked kind of ok despite the scars, but ever since I had the laser treatments, it looks a lot worse. My face now looks like I had severe acne when I was younger. The idea of subcision interests me but I'm afraid of possible complications and the surgery not working. I really do hope many of my scars will fill itself in and soften overtime. I try to be hopeful and keep my finger crossed at the back of my mind.

The infamous fraxel. My scars looks hardened after it. IMO, the laser made my rolling scars tethered and became box scars. Don't know if it'll soften and become rolling so it can fill in when i get fat.

try derma rolling or a derma stamp- tons of information on this site and on owndoc....then get a really good topical like vitamin C, copper peptides or MSM...takes a while but keep at it and you will see improvement...the whole concept is to cause a mild dermal injury then soothe and heal with the topicals

 

cheap, with the derma stamp you can focus on just the problem areas vs the whole face...start slow then build up as you gain confidence, I use a 0.5mm stamp I buy on Amazon, every 10 days or so and I stamp 6-7 times hard - slight pin point bleeding then I use copper peptides but I just picked up some MSM that I will start using

 

good luck to you, but do get started on some plan of action, maybe try a single subscision...just make a plan and get started - there is definitely improvement out there you just have to find the right thing for your skin

I know they are. I was treated with dual. It only brought more damage both physical and emotional. What kind of scars do you have and have you tried anything that helps?

I currently have two acne scars that are fairly new. (Around 6 months) I researched and found out that scars heal on its own for around a year so I decided to use natural remedies. I started to use aloe vera , lemons, and cucumbers. It's only been a week but I have a good feeling about it. I also try to intake he right amount of various vitamins.

Its been a while since this post. 

You're very young so your skin has the ability to repair itself much better than those of us who are over 20.

From looking at my scars, I can now say that some of the superficial rolling scars do fill in on their own.

I'm not saying that I am now scar free but they do improve over time.

i dont think age matters tht much unless ur superold bt if ur lucky with ur skins repairing abilities it should fill in 1-3 months if theyre not too deep (can u show pics?? ill tell u more precise then) if ur not lucky they can stay for veeeery long or FOREVER! yupp so u might start looking into dermastamping nd everything..
 
ive had i think medium shallow scars filled (on cheeks) bt medium shallow scar on my chin was there foooreeeveeer nd now i got new ones nd...eetc 
 
just dont get scarred pores ever, nothing fixes them, they will never go away, ull be forever ugly, its worse than scars

~my face will be the death of me~

There's a lot of misinformation in this thread, particularly in this last post i quoted. People on here continuously bundle up fresh wounds, healing pigmentation and true scarring under the single heading of ''scarring''. Actual scars don't heal on their own unfortunately. The reason people say that they think their scars have "filled in" after a while is due to the loss of the healing pigmentation for the most part. Redness in scars makes them look a lot deeper than they actualy are.

I usually give detailed answers to questions, however since you won't even do me the courtesy of typing in proper English, i'm going to keep this simple. Scarring is caused by deep damage to the skin. Acne is a deep infection in the skin. Thus Ruptured acne causes deep damage. QED

huh? but we are not in school or office here :T
 
and i did a courtesy of sharing my experience with you though?
 
anyway i figured acne is causing deep damage but like getting a piece of your flesh out of you is kind of a deep damage either yet it filled up? what is the difference?
