#3489374 "study: Bad Skin Can Kill Your Chances Of Landing A Job"

Posted by pursuit of happyness on 25 July 2015 - 11:35 PM

I actually had this happen to me once . I was applying for a hotel job as a waiter and they told me my "facial complications" will distract people and ruin their experience at the hotel restaurant . I simply gave them a huge middle finger and left the interview . I was completely shocked and made me feel really bad about myself . I stopped looking for jobs for a while because I didn't want this to happen again . Complete self esteem killer if you ask me .

 the same situation happened to me , but this time as receptionist , i know how this hurt !




#3489266 You See Yourself 20 Years From Now, What Advice Does The "future You"...

Posted by pursuit of happyness on 25 July 2015 - 01:12 AM

It would tell me to get used to looking like shit because you're going to have acne and severely damaged skin 20 years from now.

i have severe scars (frontal cheeks) for 9 years , any one looking at my face , they can see them from first sight and more than this, living in place of the world that doesn't know anything about scars , i don't care about people how  they see me , i just want to be comfortable and happy , i will never give up the fight ..




#3487862 Would I Need A Subcision?

Posted by pursuit of happyness on 14 July 2015 - 06:04 PM

skin needs time to build collagen after laser treatments , yes there are immediate results due to skin shrinkage but density settings should be high , i think these scars besides your mouth and chin  really needs subcision !

Binga, recell alone is 10k usd.
Stem cell fat is around 3-5 k


Fat is 2500 - 3500.

Recell is 3500-5000 in europe. 

http://aust-aestheti...p?subnav=recell

your plan looks good , but why you needs recell here ? !! , i think it's will be highly helpful only  in case of "deep" resurfacing treatments (co2 laser or dermabression ), look at these results http://www.realself....ransfer-cheeks# ( subcision + fat graft ) and it's only cost 300$ in India !!

any way , i hope you all the best ..

#3384926 Boxcar Scar On Forehead And Hyperpigmentation

Posted by pursuit of happyness on 26 September 2013 - 05:02 AM

boomer,,your face is perfect .. and this scar is not noticeable at all , and as you say when hyperpigmentation fade ,it will be much better!!, stop using vitamin e oil , it's not good for scars ,if you want something more better for hyperpigmentatipn and scar ,i think retin A /retinol cream will be good option and using it on scar only , ,plz be happy and live your life ..
