I was wondering if you guys could help me with some treatment options for my skin? I was suffering from acne during teenage/high school years, you can see pictures from my profile and Accutane helped me clear my skin but left terrible scarring. 

What treatment options would you recommend that I should go discuss with a dermatologist or on my own based on these pictures of my face scars? These scars are really preventing me from living a social life sad.png

Kind of surprised you are a veteran on this site.... lol

 

Well as always, I recommend DIY micro-needling.

 

Just got done explaining my stuff on this thread and didn't want to re-elaborate.

Good thing to be a veteran? lol 

Ive been looking into microneedling and just not sure on some questions, if you or someone else wouldn't mind answering?

 

Stainless steel vs Titanium alloy, which one is recommended? 

Should I use the microneedling in combination with 20% Vitamin C + E + Hyaluronic Acid?

I am also looking into getting some scarring removed. I don't have many but they are noticeable though. I'm just so apprehensive about doing anything by myself such as needling although I have seen people on here that have done it, I know your struggle brother. What did you do to get rid of the acne? Did it just subside over time? I noticed recently that the new version of Juvederm is out, called juverderm voluma xc that's meant specifically for the cheeks and can last up to two years. Have you attempted anything for your scarring yet or are you starting from scratch. As for me I still need to get the acne under control before I go any further with scarring treatments.
