Anyone With Fraxel Restore/ Repair Experience?

05 January 2014 - 09:15 PM

I have a consultation at a med spa to discuss treatment options for my skin. I have some red marks and slightly indented scars on my chin and an ice pick scar between my right cheek and jawline. But mostly I want to treat the large pores on my cheeks, nose, forehead, around my nose, and above my lip. I initially set up the appointment to discuss the restore, but I'm wondering if the repair would be better as it is more aggressive?

Any advice/ experience?

I might post some pics.

Acne/ Skin Conditions Tumblr Blog

30 December 2013 - 02:39 PM

Hi guys,

So I haven't been on here in a while due to some personal struggles apart from my skin, but I wanted to know if you guys would be interested in something like this. I already have a personal tumblr that is mostly focused on my eating disorder/ self harm recovery and body image, but I thought I might start a tumblr focused primarily on skin afflictions, including acne, in which people can submit pictures and stories about their skin struggles. Hopefully it would be a supportive and inspirational space, while also letting people voice how difficult it can be to live with these conditions. Let me know!

Looking At Old Pictures Of My Skin, Shocked At How Bad My Skin Was! (Pics In Gallery)

28 June 2013 - 09:55 PM

So I was looking at an old post, one of the first I ever made on this website, and I put up pictures of my skin. I was shocked at how much worse my skin was than I remember. It just makes me grateful to know that my skin has gotten so much better. Sometimes I forgot how bad my skin was and how low my self-esteem was that I take the state of my skin now for granted. Even though my skin is still very imperfect, I am very thankful for how much better my skin is now. I just thought I'd share something more positive with you guys because I tend to post a lot of depressing things on here. For some reason I couldn't upload the pictures I just took of my skin, but I put them in my gallery, titled "Updated Photos." And here is the link to the post with the pics of when my skin was really bad: http://www.acne.org/...-pics-included/
