#3461796 Rolling Acne Scars- Over It- Help

Posted by Robertitoo on 29 November 2014 - 06:54 AM

Lol @ Rob's comment. Fuck off :P

 

Don't do laser your skin seems like it's already been through a lot unless you find a really good derm/laser surgeon that strongly reccomends it. Tho most are just looking to take your Benjamins! Lot of roughness around the actual scarring. If you don't have a lot of money I suggest prepping it for a month with a light peel and after that, alternating between 15% TCA and 1.0-1.5 micro needling, preferably the stamping method, for a year and 6 months before you consider laser. The best route would be getting subcision and opting for either Filler and or Suction method. 

 

And wear sunscreen




#3459680 My Skin Scars Super Easily

Posted by Robertitoo on 13 November 2014 - 06:33 AM

I have the same problem. The only real solution is to stop getting acne. As hard as that sounds. I'm almost there as I only break out on my jawline once in a while. My jawline however doesn't scar.

 

Did you ever use Retin a or get a invasive laser treatment?




#3457609 Scars Looking Worse W/ Retin A At 12 Weeks...time To Stop?

Posted by Robertitoo on 26 October 2014 - 03:06 PM

 

 

Retin a did cause a few boxscars on places where I would never scar before. I'd stop if i were you

 

You were already scarred there and they would have become apparent eventually, Ret just sped it up because it sped up the cell turnover.

Nope, I never broke out in that area, (bottom cheek closer to mouth both sides) until Retin A. Retin A caused cystic pimples that took months to heal hence box scars. Retin a only works for a few people. I don't recommend it for acne sufferers though. Especially if you're young and prone to acne.

 

Then by your admission, retin a did not cause your scarring. It would have happened regardless. When starting Retin-a everyone has a period of 'worse' skin, because, to give an oversimplified explanation, it brings existing but not currently visible acne to the surface quicker.



 

 


 


Retin A is the cause of my scars. I never scarred before, after using Retin A for about a half a year I got scars that I cannot rid of I would be soo happy, if someone would have said this information to me. I would have stopped right away...

 
I'm sorry to hear that, Liberte . Do you know if these scars were from acne that formed while you were using retin a? Or old scars that started becoming more visible? Thanks for your reply.
I had NO scars prior using Retin A. But maybe they were there, but just not visible to me and they appeared after the use of tretinoin... Anyway, my skin is still messed up from this medication, so it does no good to you. My advice: stop it, before you make the damage worse...
 
Oh give over, Retin-A does not cause scars, it may cause minor chemical burns that heal on sensitive indivduals but by and large Retin A is one of the best thigns you can do for your skin, acne, scars or not.

Well, maybe not for you... But I have my own experience and I guess I know my body. Plus, I am a woman, so my skin is naturally thinner and more sensitive than yours. So YES Retin A may cause scarring and weird skin texture (doesn't have to, but there's a possibility)...

 

No. Retin A does not cause scarring. Atleast read into its mechanism of action before you go running your mouth. If anything Retin A will make it LESS likely that somebody will scar due to it promoting collagen production. Hence why it is great for wrinkles, fine lines and general anti aging.

 

>Plus, I am a woman, so my skin is naturally thinner and more sensitive than yours

ok whatever you say you're 100% right

 

lmao

#3441038 My Dermarolling/needling Blog

Posted by Robertitoo on 12 July 2014 - 06:12 PM

This procedure improves leathery skin, wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and thick sebaceous type of Rosacea.  The results are achieved with a series of micro punctures of tiny needles (thickness of a hair), which creates micro-channels into the dermis leaving the epidermis relatively intact (little need to hide out).   Over the next several months after each procedure, collagen and elastic tissue are produced to smooth and tighten the skin.  This works because of the following series of events occurring in the microscopic dermal layers of the skin;  needle puncture results in microscopic bleeding which floods the area with platelets (Platelet Derived Growth Factor, PDGF), many  growth factors, cytokines, fibroblasts, elastin and proteoglycans.   A matrix of type III collagen and elastic tissue starts to form at 3 weeks and continues for 6 months which results in thicker skin.   Starting 3 months after procedure to 10 months,  that type III collagen converts to type I collagen to cross-link causing the skin tightening.  This entire process is augmented by applying a chemical peel immediately after needling to induce further inflammation thus more results.

A series of 3 to 10 Micro-Needle Peels are performed monthly to achieve the desired final results.   Each treatment requires the depth of the needle to be adjusted to the area of the face treated and the depth of the problem treated.  Crows feet are only 0.5 mm but deep acne scarring and wrinkles, especially on the lips, are up to 2.5 mm.  The Dermapen adjusts from 0.5mm to 2.5mm and easily treats hard to get areas such as eyelids, lips and ear lobes.   Each treatment will go deeper with a stronger acid peel applied.  The number of procedures required depends on the severity of the problem and the healing properties of each individual patient.

#3436351 My Dermarolling/needling Blog

Posted by Robertitoo on 15 June 2014 - 05:04 PM

Going to try to make it as simple as possible...
 
I've been needling for around 8 months - year for a total of around 8 treatments. Though I wouldn't count the first 3-5 as successful treatments because I didn't have pinpoint bleeding and I wasn't very experienced. Although improvement in hyper pigmentation and a bit in the actual indentations was still be able to be seen... The recent 3 I would call more of successful treatments, as they have been combined with a 2.0m Dermastamp, Leds, Retin a and Copper Peptides and a lot of blood was drawn!
 
My diet: Vegan high carb, high fruit, lots of greens. Tons of water 2-3 Liters a day. 
 
Supplements: Green Vibrance
 
My Daily Regimen: [SAVED FOR LATER]
 
My plan/Goal: I will be Needling every 6 weeks for all through 2014 and doing a 15% Tca Peel every 4 weeks (2 weeks after every treatment and a combo in every other needling session). As seen below.
