In Topic: Scarred Pores On Nose

Clinique Pore Minimizer. There's one for darker skin tones and light skin. It goes on clear and fills in the holes. You can't even tell you have it on. I heard it had been discontinued but I bought a whole bunch of tubes so I still use it. I paid 21 dollars for the small tube but it lasts forever.

NO, no dermarolling on the nose! The nose heals differently for some reason and it could scar your nose more. I have done tons and tons of research (been rolling for almost 3 years) and everything I read says to stay away from rolling your nose. I have a couple of small scars on my nose (like enlarged poors) and I apply a pore minimizer. It's clear but fills in the holes (even semi big ones) so your nose looks so pretty and smooth.

If there's no active acne, you get Microdermabrasion done. I can't say if it'll work for you but I used to get it done to smooth out my skin and all my red marks disappeared. Mine weren't bad so it took 2 treatments...it would probably take more than 2 treatments to get rid of your marks. I paid $85 per session (not sure how much it is in your area). I'm actually going back in a couple of weeks to help with some new red marks.


In Topic: Little Flesh Colored Bumps After Peel!?!

Thank You all so much for responding. Aannabill, yep it was really stupid of me to let her put stuff on my skin without knowing what she was applying. I didn't think it would hurt my skin since it was supposed to be a facial with a very light peel. Big mistake. I will never do that again. My forehead still has bumps all over it and I also got cysts...about 8 of them. They are tiny and you can't see them but the skin is now red! And more are coming out. It happened after I got the facial with peel so that's the only thing I can think of that caused it. I don't know what caused it but it was either the peel or whatever else she applied. I do get small cysts but now I am getting them everywhere and more than I usually get at once.

Zefferson, some gunk came to the top. All the bumps got little blackheads in them so I did a bad thing and poke at them all. All kinds of crap came out. ugh. I am so upset. The bumps are still there though. They haven't gone down. I went to her to get them cleaned out but she didn't even touch them and when I mentioned that I had never had a reaction before she said it was probably because I switched from washing my face with warm water to washing it with cold water. I am going to wait it out and hope it clears up. I don't know what else to do.


In Topic: How Often To Derma Roll ?

What type of scarring do you have? Indentations or red marks?

 

I roll every 4-6 weeks and I use a 1.5 mm dermaroller. I don't think you'll see much, if any, improvement with a smaller needle size.  You're seeing improvement because your skin is experiencing microswelling.

 

Scars won't be 100% eliminated but you'll see improvement if you're consistent. I've been doing it for over 2 years and my skin looks so much better than it did before I started. :)
