Co2 Laser Benefits

02 September 2014 - 04:58 AM

Hi,

 

I have recently been to a dermatologist (laser department) and been told that because my scars are 'mild' that laser treatment wouldn't actually make much difference to my scars? I thought laser was better for mild scars


Co2 Laser Downtime

25 June 2014 - 02:32 AM

I am soon to have a test patch of this treatment done...

 

How long is the down time in peoples experiences? I know people have said a couple of weeks but would it be possible to go straight back to work after just a test patch?


I Can't Stress Enough How Much People Should Push For Nhs Scar Treatment

25 June 2014 - 02:30 AM

Sorry for the new thread but people might not have read my story on the other thread

 

Long story short...

 

Yesterday, I went for an appointment with the laser clinic at Salford Royal yesterday. The guy was great and took time to explain my options. 

 

He said that he is happy to do a test patch but did say that he wasn't sure if it would help massively as he said my scars were 'mild'. He didn't for one minute try and put me off the treatment he just explained that there are risks involved which I obviously already knew. I'm going to go ahead with the test patch and see what happens

 

I asked him about derma roller and he said it is good but obviously not available on the NHS

 

I can't stress enough to people how much they need to push if they want something do but it IS available

Buying Accutane Online

29 April 2014 - 03:43 AM

I know this is a big no no but lets face it, people do it (rightly or wrongly)

 

What sites have people used to get the drug in the UK? The waiting list in the UK is ridiculous and the site I used to use (1stpills.com) is no longer around.

 

This genuinely isn't for me but a friend as I have been through this horrible disease and my issue is scarring now!

 

Thanks


Shaving Problems

01 April 2014 - 07:24 AM

Apologies that this is in here but the shaving section isn't looked at much!

 

I am mostly clear of acne most of the time. I use s stubble trimmer and always shave my stubble at 1mm. I always leave it a few days as my skin always looks better (hides scars and any spots better)

 

The trouble I have is the day after shaving, I come out in lots of spots and it is red. I have tried everything but wondered if anyone had any tips?

 

Thanks!



Sorry for the typos, I'm in work so typing quickly!!
