Yes, I meant the fullness / bloated face that you talked about.  



I know it's been discussed, but wouldn't using sterile saline take care of that problem?  Perhaps to get the most out of the treatment you need a hyaluronic acid to act as a spacer to prevent the scars from reattaching.  

Sorry I don't follow take care of what problem? The fullness?

I think it's safe to conclude at this point that Fraxel Restore is a complete waste of time and money.  It's been over 7 or 8 years since this hit the market and the majority of reviews are highly negative.  The only people I've found that are still saying it is helpful are the doctor's offices that paid big money for these machines and are trying to recoup the costs.

Seriously, Proactive?  Are you effing kidding? ? You a bot or something? If you're a company shill, try being a little more subtle.


The dude doesn't have active acne, he's trying to improve his scars.  


These look like mostly larger ice pick and boxcar scars.  Like Mrs. Robinson said, I think TCA Cross should help, but there is some risk involved.  Always do a test spot on a few scars before doing a huge procedure.  Also, just from personal experience, it's easier to do smaller sections at a time versus the entire face, because you will not look presentable with many small red scabs all over your face.  



Hey, saw the images shared by you. To reduce this you can use a simple treatment with http://www.proactiv....acne-system.php

This is one of the simplest ways to get ris of your skin problems at home. I have used it personally and have gt visible results.

What's this study?  I'd be curious to read this, as this sounds pretty extreme.  I can't imagine retin-a would be able to ablate 100s of microns of skin.





Looks like the scarring, which Retin-A left on my skin... Ask the doctor, I am quite curious, what will he tell you.

Retin - A does make Scars?! Thats quite interesting, because i did use retin - a the last few days. My doc said its safe to use now. But i think it did worsen the spots. Do you have still the scars?

Depends on people I guess. I had NEVER scars before I used Retin A. From a few months of having acne - bam! My face is covered w it. My dermatologist asked me, If I used Accutane, when I said no, she warned me not to ever use it, as the new study claims, that it causes new scars. It contains Isotretinoin, so as RetinA... I know some people had success with it, but some were left with permanently damaged skin.

What is this new study?  I'd be interested in reading about this.
