In Topic: My Scars After Accutane Treatment

31 August 2014 - 12:46 PM

First, make sure that you wait at least 12 months after going on accutane to perform any scar treating procedures, as they recommend this as the amount of time it takes for your skin to regain it's healing ability.

 

Some may disagree, but with very similar scarring to yours. I started accutane around age 23, and noticed these types of scars when I completed treatment. What you will notice over the next 2 years is that a lot of the scars will soften with time (I'm also 25 and have very similar skin to yours). They won't completely go away but they certian do fix themselves to a relative extent, and I think this is a combination of your skin regaining its healing capabilities after accutane, and also just the natural process of skin exfoliation.

 

I'm waiting for a product called dextran hydrogel which you can read more about in scarless healing. What really helped me more than any other treatment (I have performed 0 treatments for my scars) was seeking psychiatric help to regain my self esteem. It helped me gain new friends, go to public events all the time without even worrying about my scars.

The large animal trial is undergoing.... lets just hope good news emerge from it

how could this happen if the original researchers are not working on this any more?

 

Maybe because Sharon Gerecht wants all the proceeds.


In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Yea i saw somewhere niacin is proposed before every sauna session. http://www.healingda...diet/niacin.htm i personnaly think it's far from the best way to detox but idk, if someone want to try. some plants do the same like pimento & ginger.

 

Hi anonyy, I've been following the thread and reading yours and others posts about post accutane issues. I see that you mention in many bits in pieces the "best" ways to do some things such as diet, kidney detox, liver detox etc. However, it's difficult to put it all together since it's scattered across the thread. Is it possible for you to compile your exact diet and detoxes that you went through in one post so that interested sufferers could attempt it? As it is now, I can't make sense of some of the ambiguities, but I'll try and summarize what I've gathered from you.

 

1. Remove dairy/grains/gluten/meat from diet. Drink home prepared vegetable and fruit juices (which vegetables and fruits?) with some additives (herbs and roots?). I'm assuming your primary source of protein comes from fish? Your primary source of fat comes from nuts/nut butters? What is your specific diet? Is there a name for it?

 

-You also mention that since the intestines are damaged after accutane, which mine most certainly are, that it is more 'complicated' than simply consuming vegetable and fruits, that more must be done. Can you elaborate on what else you did to repair your intestines?

 

2. Boil parsley and drink the water every day to remove sexual issues.

 

3. Perform liver/kidney detoxes (which ones, how often?)

 

Apologies if you have explained these in detail in previous posts but I have just read the last 30 pages. I am busy with uni so I don't have the time to read this entire thread at the moment.

While this isn't related to the hydrogel, it is a very interesting and promising article nonetheless. Apologies if it's been posted before:
