 Hi, 

  I am a 30 year old male living in Sydney and I have had scars from acne all over my face. Mostly it's ice pick scars and rolling scars. I have tried lot of home remedies but to no avail. I am thinking about getting a fraxel laser done. Has anyone got experiences with fraxel anywhere and does anyone know an affordable fraxel treatment that works for these kinda scars and any clinics around Sydney where I can afford it. I have 2 appointments, one with manly laser clinic and another with md cosemetical solutions  in cbd Sydney. I don't know what the guys there are gonna say but I shall keep blogging and let everyone know about this ..

   From tonight I am trying vitamin e,lemon juice and sandalwood paste on my face and I shall blog about it as well. keep posted and let me know any other scar treatments that has worked......

Moved to Scar/Red Mark Treatments forum.


After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo.  I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month.  I can live with that smile.png

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry.  In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.
