Topics I've Started

A New Outlook

04 March 2014 - 04:31 PM

Okay, before I get into what I'm getting into, let me apologize. I apologize for my highly unorganized post and any punctuation, grammar errors that I might make. 

 

Okay so an update on me. I don't really get on here anymore, because this website is extremely depressing and every corner you turn hope is lost. It's depressing and negative and my brain seems to put more emphasis on the sad stores and look over the positive ones, or at least that is how I used to be. Now, I only acknowledge the positive things in life. I let the negatives of others and my surroundings go right though me. I still have some scars, but I would like to add that I am achieving great results I am dermastamping every 3 weeks. I don't care if some people think that's too soon, I know myself better than you do. Plus, I'm saving tons of money & doing something about what I consider "my problem". I plan on having a couple fat transfers when I get the money up. 

 

This website has a bunch of people that lecture people & I do not like that. I don't like being told what I should eat and what I shouldn't. I don't like being told what I should do & when I should do it or who I should do it by. I do appreciate advice, but please do not act like "your way" is better than "my way." I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about here.  Different people do different things, that's what makes us unique.

 

However all of this on this website have many things in common, but we only are focusing on one here, okay maybe two. That is acne & acne scars. Do you realize what we have done here? We have felt "alone" and we have all subconsciously seeked out people that we can relate to, that have the same problem as we do without realizing we needed someone to talk to, vent with, etc. With that being said, for months I spent waaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on this damn site, it is a good site, don't get me wrong, but we need to live life. This should not be a hobby. I have seen people on here that quit their jobs to commit to fixing their scars, who drop out of school because of acne. Don't let this little problem stand in your way. One of your biggest problems is your mindset. You are being selfish really. You're hurting yourself. 

 

You know that little voice in your head? The one that tries to ruin your fun when you're having a good time? The one who tells you you're ugly? Well, I dare you to challenge that voice. Challenge yourself. Get out of the house, have fun and do things with friends. Meet new people. Volunteer. Make goals. Get a degree. Hit the gym. Exercise. Drop the friends in your life that bring you down. Seriously, if you hang out with people that are constantly negative, conceited, rude, anything that doesn't suit your liking, drop those people. Simple as that. If it's your family bringing you down, fire back. 

 

Find & surround yourself with people & animals (if you like animals). Surround yourself with people that give you a "high", people that make you happy, people you're comfortable around. 

 

I know what you're probably thinking. Shut up already. That will never work. I've tried it. I'm still unhappy. Boo hoo. Well take my post to your head, because it's backed by my personal experience & I have been through a lot this past year. Things that I would never want to go through again, my worst nightmares, waaaaaay worse than acne, wayyyyy worse than acne scars. People have different problems, people go through different things. I'm dealing the cards I was dealt. 

 

I'm proud to say that I have finally changed my perspective on life. I go to the gym, I volunteer, I graduate college this year, I'm going back to college for more education. I finally got a good paying job. I'm dermastamping & saving money + getting results !.

 

I encourage you all to analyze how you're feeling on a daily basis, what you're doing, who you're around, your goals, your future, (how you picture your future), seek counseling/therapy. Don't focus so much on what you're eating & all these other crazy methods that these people on here suggest. Which could lead to bigger problems than you've ever imagined, trust ME!

 

Do what moves you, do what makes you happy. Don't allow yourself to feel like a victim in this world. That will only bring you down. Why are you fighting yourself? Be your own best friend. Build yourself up. Don't let anyone bring you down. People can be shallow, I understand, but realize you are something greater. Quit using acne, acne scars to find people you can relate to. Of course that's the only thing you will have in common if that's what you choose, but it's a silly one. If you want to put all of your focus on such a negative thing go for it. However, I highly suggest that you have a greater purpose in life. Find your purpose. Go soul searching. Pray to whatever God you believe in, but most of all start accepting yourself. You are beautiful, you are alive, you are human & you are strong.


The Cause

10 October 2013 - 04:23 PM

So I have literally been through hell this month, but I have learned a lot and I figured I would give back to the community that has helped me so much.

 

Acne is caused technically by your nerves & how you react or think about certain situations. 

 

*It can be caused by doing too much of something.

 

However, I find the main cause of acne is obsessively worrying over acne & what causes it.

 

When people start avoiding different foods they like that creates some form of emotion related to that food.

When people stop using products they like, this does the same thing.

Basically, what you obsess over more is what you get more of.

Acne is caused by unhappiness, not doing what you want when you want.

For example, you want to hang out with your friends, but your self esteem is low, it makes you sad.

Therefore, creating more.

Acne is a sign you're not getting what you want out of your life, or you are unhappy about something.

Or you need to learn to cope with things people have said better. 

When I tried to go a diet, it was complete bs. IDC what anyone has to say, my face exploded. It was terrible. I felt starved.

When I went back to my same eating ways, bam improvement.

When I stay away from this website, it almost disappears.

Acne is a sign that you need to make changes in your life that will make you happy & let you relax.

Acne is a sign that you're not living your life the way you want to.

Acne & low self esteem go hand in hand.

 


Fat Graft Dermal Graft Prp Dermarolling

DERMAL GRAFT

 

If you have had this done post here please!


Okay so I am trying to compile a thread of people that have had some of these procedures done. I know Datura had dermal grafts done, I believe in Alabama, but not sure by which doctor. I'm pretty sure he had good results with the dermal grafts. I know there's been a few others on here that have had it done too. I am looking for other people that have had it done.

 

Fat Transfer / Fat Graft / Fat injection

 

 If you had had this done post here! Please!

 

Again I know some people have had this done with success and the result is dependent on the skill of the doctor. I recall a user on this site that said fat injections were like magic and that each time he them done his skin on the surface improved too. The results can be permanent if done correctly. (harvesting, injecting).

 

PRP (blood injections)

 

This is where blood is used as a filler, but it's more than just a filler. Blood contains numerous things that are beneficial. It has growth factors, stem cells. There is a lot of science on the web and on the site to back this up. However, I am looking for people that have had this done.

 

Dermarolling

If you have had dermarolling done or you do it yourself, please post here!

 

Please don't leave if you have had one of these treatments and it was successful. I am simply making this thread, because I know how hard it is to search for information with tears in your eyes. I am trying to make it easier for people, I know this has been done, but some of the threads are pretty old. Feel free to quote parts from any other thread to make it easier for new members.

I can honestly say that I love each & everyone of you acne.org members, as silly as it sounds we are like a family. We WILL get through this dang it!
Thanks so much.


Flaking Scars Please Read

02 July 2013 - 07:23 PM

Okay, I need some help guys. I recently had subcision one about one month ago. About 9 days ago I did needling on my forehead. It scabbed, came off sometime. Well it looks like the area is filling in, but it's like white flakes. I'm really confused and need feedback. I really don't think it's dry skin, because I have really oily skin. I have read the forums on self needling and people talk about scars "filling in" I'm not sure what's going on here..if it's normal or what. It doesn't look bad..just confused.
