In Topic: Pitted Scarring

Yesterday, 02:42 AM

I found it impossible to use dermaflage and have it not look obvious that there was a film on my skin.    For me, the oil-free Miracle Blur primer from Loreal is actually pretty good.  It won't cover up deep scars, but it will smooth out pores and blur the jaggedness of some scars, if that makes sense.  It does give a sort of airbrushed effect to the skin, and plus it's essentially invisible so it's nice for guys.   

Mandy, where can we get this manuka honey mentioned in your 79 posts?

In Topic: Scarring The Day After Alcohol

Yesterday, 02:32 AM

Alcohol really dries out the skin.  Seriously, every pore on my face gets magnified 20x after a heavy night of drinking.  I pretty  much gave it up and I can't even remember the last time I drank alcohol.  Dehydration does make acne scars even more prominent.  I find the things that make my skin look even worse are poor sleep and dehydration.

It said subcision one time and 6 staggered sessions of needling and chemical peels.

I think there's something to what you are saying.  I think lasers are an important tool in scar revision, but it's not appropriate in all cases. And in some cases, like you said, better results could be achieved with subcision alone, but the going rate is well below $1K in most areas.  That's simply not enough profit for doctors who spend upwards of $100K on top of the line lasers.    If you have scarring with volume loss, multiple subcisions and maybe finessed with some fillers is the way to go.

You've had real surgical dermabrasion?  Not microdermabrasion right?
