Hopeless, Completely hopeless that it will get better, the acne is slowly getting under control, but the pitted scars left behind are absouletly horrendous, now amount of makeup can cover them up. I can't look in a mirror without completely hating myself, I don't go on dates, and when I have and it's ended up badly, I feel it was my acne, and scarring that they couldn't get over. I feel ugly and hopeless. I was feeling a little better earlier when I heard from my dermatoligst that fraxel lasering was the way to go, but then I read reviews, and now I am as hopeless as ever
Don't read reviews. The internet is full of horror stories about almost everything. I did 4 Fraxel Re:store procedures during September-February period, and taking a break before next autumn. My scars are deep. The improvement I saw was of 15-20%, but the thing with lasers are that results are getting more visible by time. I'd say my improvement right now is about 22-25% and getting better. No need to lose hope cause of bad reviews. Just find a good specialist. Dermarolling over a long period of time gives good results too, been following few youtuber's progress over a time (though improvement takes at least a year to see). One thing that will get you nowhere - it's feeling hopeless. There are loads of procedures out there that can help, good luck!
