#3318557 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by Nyla on 14 January 2013 - 06:13 PM

New papule under the right side of my jaw. Big whoop. Some whiteheads, one papule on forehead that isn't inflamed anymore. That's pretty much it. Could be worse, and it HAS been worse, so I'm not really complaining.

#3316690 Can Hyperpigmentation Be Permanent?

Posted by Nyla on 08 January 2013 - 05:23 AM

I'm not talking about red marks but brown marks. I have some brown marks that are almost 4 years old. Although my PIH has faded significantly over the past few years (with the help of 2 sessions of a non-ablative laser. I did that 2 years ago and I've had extremely good results, and no side effects), my skin still remains looking blotchy and uneven. My marks are now nowhere near as dark as they used to be, but they still give my skin such a tired, dull appearance. I've taken all the suggestions given by the members on here into consideration. I'm looking into peels and Retin-A. I'm also, hopefully, going to dermastamp my face (I have some rolling scars).

Can anyone give me some insight? Can hyperpigmentation last forever? I'm not doubtful that I've somehow managed to fuck up my skin along the way, lol........but I'm really hoping that it isn't permanent. :(

unfortunately you're going to have to wait. they usually take months of fade, i've had many of these. you can exfoliate to speed up things but it won't be gone that fast

yeah i know how you feel. ive finally gotten rid of my red marks, but my dark marks still linger. i used to have really really red marks. aloe vera was the shit during that time... mine is called fruit of the earth. i would give it a 7/10. other things that helped me were baking soda used as a scrub
