#3366956 Sever Body Acne Scars, Follicular Atrophy, Perifollicular Elastolsysis. Venti...

Severe, disfiguring scarring? oh please..  I mean, there is scarring (unlike other posters calling open pores gaping holes) , but do you expect ANY user to agree with you? of course not, that's why you managed to post those pictures. People with truly disfiguring acne scarring VERY rarely post pictures of themselves because they can't even handle the idea of pictures of their bodies being taken, let alone uploading them to the internet for everyone to see. There are many, many people with disfigurements, but pictures of them are very hard to come by, and most of the time belong to medical papers more than public internet forums.

 

Anyway, acne body scars can be flattened with steroid injections (risky) and then tattooing over the hypopigmented area with surrounding skin color. Of course, tanning is out of the question if you don't want to look worse than before so it is up to you.

Sadly, body acne scars are more difficult to treat than "classical" facial acne scars, which are by themselves nigh-impossible to perceivably remove

Sorry i havent been able to go to this site for days. Trying to enjoy my life despite this acne and scars. Anyways, it's been days since i read that story but im pretty sure you guys will be able to find it on google. Just type, facial massag ruined my face. You'll eventually find some. Because i always search the negative together with the positive. But anyways, im excited to try this massage! I agree with Aquasea. TRY IT ONLY and ALWAYS listen to your face ans skin! Stop if there is negative effects immidiately!

 

Thanks for your input. There are indeed negative reports of facial massaging, but i think most of them are coming from a "Carole Maggio's facercise" program which doesn't seem suitable for just scars. In any case, the positive effects of facial massages in general seem to overwhelmingly outweigh the negative ones surprised.gif

 

I wish i could afford those serums you suggest aquasea, but I'm a broke college student at the moment, and shippings to Mexico are not cheap blush.png

Thanks for the links aquasea, i've taken spirulina since childhood and i didn't know it could be used as a face mask surprised.gif

 

I'm starting to see dents filling up as a result of massaging, but unfortunately i got a cyst just in the middle of the area i was massaging (cheek) so i won't be able to do it for the next week. The other cheek is still recovering from a chemical peel i did weeks ago so we'll see which side ends up better in the end.

 

Also don't worry about people asking for pictures, i wouldn't upload any even if i had perfect skin (shyness, mostly). This is one of the few if not the only technique that is 100% safe and provides good results all around; if not for scars, for a natural lift and healthy skin glow.

Hey, i just read some story where this girl massaged her face, and kept massaging and eventually her face sagged.
What are your thoughts about this?

 

That's kind of worrying, could you provide the source of that info? she must've massaged way too much for a very long time and with a technique not targeted at just scars alone!

#3348901 Mental Stress From Severe Acne Scarring...

Posted by Miko Yan on 15 May 2013 - 10:18 PM

Hey I think it's some kind of depression, but I've never heard memory issues related to it before so i don't really know what to say about that.

I can relate to that dull sensation though, that constant "bug" in the head that never goes away and resembles a light headache. I'm no fan of medication but i'm thinking of trying antidepressants to see if something changes (for the better, of course).

 

It seems that you've given up on treating your scarring, please don't. There's nothing wrong accepting yourself as you are, but personally I just can't do that. I wasn't born with all these disfiguring scars so I can't train my brain to just accept how i look and move on. I'm always looking for a treatment that might result in ANY improvement, even a %0.5 improvement after one treatment is a victory, and that helps to relieve my depression a little over time.

 

Of course, there is risk of worsening the scars (or making new ones) depending on the treatment, so it's best to first choose the least invasive treatments possible (no lasers, dermabrasion, etc) just to be on the safe side, but my point is to be on some kind of treatment/downtime. Some people say that with time scars will improve, but only if they're minor and that don't look like gaping holes all across the face.

 

In my opinion it's better to do something about the scars even if it doesn't appear to work, in the end one can say that (s)he tried the best (s)he could given the options available and in the future don't feel bad thinking "I could've done more".

 

I'm sure that in the future better treatments will come but in the mean time, if scars really bother you, never give up treating them.
