I don't live in the UK and so don't have access to Recell. This is off topic though. You should use another thread for this.

Excision. The only treatment guaranteed to permanently remove acne scars.

 

By creating new scars? Is that possible to do it myself?

 

In my underdevelopment country I won't find anyone who can do this... They don't do subcision, dermaneedling, punch techniques, and so on. The only do erbium laser and chemical peels. I'd like to treat by a professional, but I'm on my own. What the fucking country :)

 

Excision can be risky even when done by a professional. Do not self-excise your skin.

What about nanoparticles?

Quote:

The nanoparticles with their siRNA cargoes were then tested by topically applying them to mice with either skin excisions or burns. In both cases, the wounds closed more than twice as fast as in untreated controls. "Not only did the cells move into the wounds faster, but they knew what to do when they got there," said Dr. Sharp. "We saw normal, well-orchestrated regeneration of tissue, including hair follicles and the skin's supportive collagen network."

 

They are moving to pig trials soon too:

"Dr. Sharp plans to start testing the therapy on pigs, whose skin closely resembles that of humans, within months."

Missamua,  you are speaking the TRUTH.  I'm all for natural living, but I have noticed the exact same thing with these health / holistic  super militant, vegan types who ALWAYS exaggerate their supposed health issues.  

 

What I think is happening is that

1) these people want to push an agenda and exaggerate to build a more convincing case for their world view

2) They attract a particular kind of person that is distrustful of the medical community at large

 

Theses are the same kinds of people who refuse to have their children be vaccinated because of unproven fears of health problems like Autism.  They are super militant and just attack anyone that asks them to back up their claims with cold, hard empirical evidence.  

   Yes.... those militant Vegans.... very dangerous for the world!!

 

 

(sarcasm)

 

Misinformation can be dangerous and really shouldn't be taken lightly. Look at the anti-vaccer movement, global warming denouncers or any religious movement, etc, etc, etc. We should always strive to apply science to everything we do and eliminate ignorance and misinformation.

For me it's 100% genetics. I've tried everything: diet, lifestyle, dermatologists.

 

I have friends that drink, smoke, eat unhealthy foods, live in dirtier environments than me and have near perfect skin in their 30s.

 

Basically what I'm telling you is that for those with bad acne it's best to just accept it. The amount of money and effort I'd have to invest for a tiny improvement is ridiculous. And drastically changing my diet and altering my lifestyle would lower my quality of life, as it did in the past when I tried it.

 

I could tell that I was a very weak child when I was growing up. I was doomed from the start. I have lived such an underprivileged life...
