In Topic: Microdermabraison For Scars ?

13 July 2014 - 11:40 PM

Microdermabrasion won't do anything for ice pick scars or scarred pores. It should improve the overall texture and color of your skin. It is good for exfoliation and leaves your skin looking renewed and polished but it doesn't go deep enough to improve real scars.

They say diamond microdermabrasion is the best.

Best of luck treating your scars.

This is just a facial scrub. Not sure why they call it microdermabrasion because it is not remotely similar. Highly unlikely it will do anything for scarring.

I have used MUAC's scrubs in the past. Never with the hope of improving scars though. Scrubs are good for exfoliation of dead skin cells.

You should research hypertropic scar treatments if that is your issue. The nose is delicate and how you treat raised scars depends on the type of scarring. I would consult with a doctor and certainly wouldn't do anything that could aggravate it.

Wow, sorry that happened.    Every time I think I've seen and heard it all, I'm just dumbfounded by people's capacity for cruelty.  

 
Uh, I think it depends on what were the intentions of that person.
 
Maybe that picture was supposed to be an allusion, like, "hey, look how good can you look w/o scars. You just have to do something about it".
 
A lot of people have absolutely no knowledge of how to treat acne scarring. I mean, why would anyone with great skin research scar treatments? They think that a simple procedure or one laser treatment will make your problem go away, unfortunately they are terribly mistaken.
 
It's normal (I speak from personal experience) and I wouldn't care much about it. Unless the intention was to make you feel like crap, in that case I agree with cutting such person off.

Sorry I disagree. That is like photoshopping a photo of someone overweight and saying you would look great skinny. Go on a diet. How do you know that person doesn't have a medical condition and can't lose weight? Or, why not photoshop a picture of a bald friend and say I hear you can get hair surgically added today. Saw it on TV. I would never point out someome's physical flaws and tell them to do something about it. I do not need superficial friends like that. If I did not confide in you about my insecurities and flaws, what would make you think it is okay to point them out and worse, why in the world would you be researching a way to fix my skin condition. Believe me, scar sufferers are clearly aware of their scars and disfigurement. Don't need a so-called friend pointing it out.

In some cultures, this might be okay. Where I am from, you'd be completely out of line. Mind your own business and focus on your own problems.

i've been through so much hell now that i am 37 i don't even feel normal anymore ...i think it has messed up my head so much i can never go back


Sorry to hear you are down. I have been through a lot in life as well. I try to look at it as a blessing in disguise and force myself to keep moving forward. A couple years ago, I started cutting out negative people from my life and putting my needs first. It was difficult at the time but looking back, I am happy I made a positive change. You deserve better and should allow yourself to have it.

Also don't take my advice on returning the favor with a photoshopped image. If I were you, I would definitely think about it but I wouldn't do it. I would say something equally cruel though before cutting the person off. At times people don't realize they are being insensitive until the roles are reversed.

In Topic: How Can I Do A Search?

I take back what I said. Appears they fixed Search. I last tried it a few months ago and you couldn't get results more than 180 days old. I was actually trying it by PM with someone else at the forum and neither of us could get older threads but it is working now.
