#3475839 Bellafill Or Silicone Injections? You May Be Wrong About Silicone!

Posted by Melloman on Yesterday, 01:49 AM

Yeah, is it liquid silicone?  How bad are your scars?  You would be taking a risk, and if it doesn't come out right, silicone isn't as easy to remove as it is to inject.  And insurance probably won't cover the surgery to correct it.  Also, won't the facial skin start to sag after a couple of years?  Surgeons often tell patients to come back every few years for touch ups on breast implants, so it could be the case for face implants as well.

 

Also, when you're older and your skin shrinks and sags, won't the injections be more noticeable?  I know I'm just answering with a ton more questions, but I guess the best thing to do is more research and to decide if it's REALLY worth the risk.  In the meantime, you could look into some natural alternatives to healing your scars.  There are tons out there that help.  A naturopath can help you with that.

 

Also, can you post some pictures?  It always looks worse to the person who has them than to others.  I've seen great looking people who thought they had horrible scars.  Truth was, I wouldn't have noticed if they didn't pointed it out.  I have some bad scars too if that makes you feel any better. 




#3474064 The Truth

Posted by Melloman on 08 March 2015 - 05:20 PM

Many acne sufferers have gut damage.  Damage to the intestines makes it more difficult to absorb vitamin A.  The vitamin A that is obtained is used very quickly because of the damaged gut, which means vitamin A needs to be replenished more often.

To combat inflammation, the liver releases vitamin A.

 

Products like Accutane, and Retin-A utilize vitamin A as one of the most crucial ingredients.  However, these treatments may further damage your body and your gut by killing off the good bacteria, and only providing temporary acne relief which may end up much worse sometime after the treatment is over.

 

I am nearing the end of my acne journey.  I will gather information and post it on this topic for everyone else to share.  Please feel free to add anything you'd like.

 

This topic is for any and all evidence and cures!  Please add any amount of crucial information on acne and everything that surrounds it!  Including your own experience with random things!




#3469078 Experiment: Whole Food, Organic, Vegan, High Carbohydrate, Low Fat Diet.

Posted by Melloman on 22 January 2015 - 05:05 PM

Hey there.



2 Week Update:

 

1. Digestion very slow. Feeling bloated and had a couple of stomach aches the other day.

2. Feeling anxious/restless

3. Brain fog: forgetting things, confusing words.

4. No breakouts (except one, single spot on my forehead). Having tracked my nutritional levels on CronoMeter I don't seem to be lacking anything/endangering myself, so I assume that my symptoms are just my body adapting and transitioning, and aren't warning signs

5. An interesting article which might explain my current state: http://www.google.co...IW1JsuuU6GzgcgE

 

Based on the update, it sounds like your body is intolerant to some of those foods.  See, I got a food sensitivity test, and my body basically just told me the foods good and bad to eat.  Here are my results:

i'm sensitive to:

Almonds, Coconut, Filbert/Hazelnut, String Green Beans, Lima Beans, Green English Peas, Peanuts, Soybeans, Celery, Histamine, Buckwheat, Corn, Rice

 

I'm Barely sensitive to:

Eggs (white and yolk), Milk, Cinnamon, Garlic, Ginger, Pecan, Pistachio, Walnut, Black Food (wtf? black walnut?), Green Pepper, Mushroom, White Potato

 

And I'm Not sensitive to:

Oats, Rye, Whole Wheat, Poppy Seed, Apple, Orange, Peach, Tomato, Brazil Nut, Cashew Nut, Kidney-Pinto Beans, Carrots, Saline

 

I only eat what I'm not sensitive.  Sadly, the list is small and it's so hard just to eat this crappy stuff everyday.  I've been trying to get more tests, but as far as the results go, it has cleared my acne.

i know its been 8 years, 4 months, and around 11 days since you posted this, but I think I have your answer.

 

I think you have this thing called rosaeca. Thats probably not the correct spelling, but if u put it in googke, im sure ur gonna find it. A lot of people report the same thing you did and are lead to believe that rosaeca is the cause. So good luck! Hope this helps someone.




#3467221 Need Help With My Boyfriend And Acne Insecurities Xc

Posted by Melloman on 08 January 2015 - 06:22 PM

I agree with @megtree.  If you truly love and care for each other, I think you should let him know how you feel about your acne.  And also let him know that it's not black and white, and that not everyone can just wash their face with proactive and have it dissapear.  He will understand, and I think he wants to understand.  That's probably why he brings it up.

#3466451 Modified Caveman Regimen + Getting Rid Of Acne Scars

Posted by Melloman on 03 January 2015 - 02:56 PM

My acne came when I was 11.  I did something similar and cleared my acne, if you want to check it out.  It's in my topics section.  I have food sensitivities and I think I have leaky gut.  So all I focus on is my diet to clear my acne.  I also excersice to increase heal time of suspected leaky gut and scars.

 

If you wanna do process of elimination, you can get a sensitivity test and maybe see a naturopath to do more testing.  I think that is better than going in blind.

P.S.

Water is really good.  It's literally the only thing I drink.  They say you should only drink green tea, water, and one other thing if you are acne prone.  but do whatever you want.  Thanks for sharing your journey.  I'm sure it'll jelp lots of people/




#3465575 Accutane In China [Please Help]

Posted by Melloman on 27 December 2014 - 03:32 PM

Some people are saying you don't even need a dermatoligist.  That it's an OTC drug you can get over the counter.  If you're only gonna be on it for 3 months, and you bought 3-4 months worth, why are you even worried about buying more in China?  You can call the airlines ahead of time to confirm being able to take it with you on your travels. 




#3465067 Cooped Up In The House

Posted by Melloman on 23 December 2014 - 01:30 PM

I got a dui and had my license suspended for 60 days 2 weeks ago. I had to quit my job of delivery driving, and Ive been in the house since.

 

My dui was for marijuana, no alcohol. I had been feeling suicidal for the majority of the year, and weed was the only thing keeping me alive while still going out in the world with my bad acne scarring. I worked my ass off during that time saving money for laser treatments, and had my first fraxel the day my license was taken. I would say there has been a slight improvement so far and am optimistic to see how it heals over the next couple months. I also got back on retin-a and ambi fade cream which have made a nice difference in the skin tone.

 

I have also been sober for two weeks now, and have been feeling and looking more like myself a little bit each day. When I get my license back, I will be through 2 fraxels and 2 months of completely letting my skin rest from makeup, sun, and stress. I plan to get my job back at that point and give life another shot.

 

Edit: I will be 25 in a couple months, and have been dealing with acne since I was about 13. My skin is definitely looking better today than it has since I was 12. Ive come a looong way, and still have a ways to go as these lasers take months to fully regenerate the collagen. I have the money for the treatments, a competent physician to do the procedures, and the determination to stick to my regimen every day for the rest of my life. Im hoping that I can enjoy clear skin in my 30s and 40s.

 

That sucks to hear.  I've had to force myself out of the house most days because I'm more independent since my mom kicked me out.  I used to stay in a lot growing up because of my acne.  I felt more comfy where no one could see me.  I splurged on videogames and youtube and tried to make some cash if I was skipping school.

 

My question to QuanHenry, I've been going through some shit, too, recently.  I've been homeless this year, but I'm "housed" now.  How are you able to stay financially stable after you lost your job, and are stuck in the house?  I'm just curious.  I completely understand the situation though cuz I went through shit like that too.

@ Havoc

 

Well I'm definetely not going the paleo route.  But that's mainly because these sensitivity test results have been clearing me up.  Nice to see people doing their research, though.




#3464392 I Have Been Clear For 1 Year And 3 Months (I Might Have Your Answers)

Posted by Melloman on 18 December 2014 - 02:44 PM

Most store bought porbiotics actually come with dairy and soy in them.  Those are both triggers for me.

About the IG testing, there are 3 different types, as I understand.  One for Food sensitivities, Food Allergies, and Food intolerances.  A prick test for sensitivities did it for me.  However, a blood test with allergies came back with no results.  Here is what I suggest in order of most likely to occur:

Sensitivity

Intolerance

Allergy

But just do your own research if you wish to take these tests.  Also, leaky gut, and digestive health are things you can test for. 




#3463723 Most Awkward Acne Moments!

Posted by Melloman on 13 December 2014 - 08:35 AM

Hey!

Someone already created "Meanest thing someone has ever said about your acne."  But I like to be able to laugh and be optimistic through misfortune.  Unfortunately, since I got acne, my life has turned into a super awkward mess.  I would have over 30 awkward moments a week!  That's an awful and traumatizing experience.

BUT, sometimes sharing these moments can help us through the pain.  Might as well get SOME sort of joy from out misfortune.  I'll post 2 of mine. one now, and one later on an edit.  
 

This one happened AFTER the one I'm going to post on the edit.  It's not as bad as the edit one, though.

 

 

First story

 

So I was back in Atlanta for 2 days, accompaning my mom to see her ex bf who was having surgery to save his life.  I'm in the grocery store, and two of the hottest girls ever are just walking around the store.  They spot me and are checking me out. (I looked super hot from far away)  I go into the freezer isle after they dissapear, hoping they wouldn't find me.  Then suddenly, out of no where, they pop up right in my face!  They get blasted with my face full of cystic acne!  They didn't say shit!  They just stood their, frozen.  I just turned and walked away quickly.  I felt beyond mortified.

 

First story .5. I actually had 2 awkward moments on the 2 day trip. So I was in the hospital waiting room where everyone was sleeping at Emory. I had gotten terribly sick from the car ride cuz my mom likes to blast ice cold air in my face while I'm sleeping. I added nothing to do and felt painfully awful. So to feel good and pass some time, I decided I'd masturbate. I went to different floors trying to find the best place to jack off. I'd jack off in different rooms, but then get too paranoid to finish cuz I close my eyes and become almost completely oblivious when I do it. So after 5 hours of blue balls, I end up right back on my floor, in the men's bathroom, right across the hall from the room I started from. Finally!!! So I get to jerkin and I'm finally about to finish. I hear someone open the door, but I'm like "Fuck it! I don't give a fuck! I waited 5 hours for this shit!" All he could hear was fap fap fap fap fap! And he could probably see my vibrating legs from under the stall. Whoever it was gave a pissed off sigh and turned right back around and left. I finished, but I felt ashamed...

The edit isn't here yet.

 

P.S. 

I have cured my acne naturally after getting a food sensitivity test.  If you wanna know more about my cure, you can see a naturopath, and or research tests for seeing what's wrong with your system.




#3463608 People With Acne. We're The One Chosen

Posted by Melloman on 12 December 2014 - 04:51 AM

 US

 

 

WE were chosen to suffer the struggle of acne.  For most of us, it made us more understanding of other people's problems.  It made us less likely to hate others when we don't even know them, their struggle, or why they do what they do.

 

Yes, it does many great things in the process of the firery hell that rages on our faces.  

 

 

Corrupt people ($)

 

But definetely never give up on your cure.  Just stay optimistic.  Remember, we are also SACRIFICES!  There has been at least one "cure" for acne that's been sitting on the shelf for 10 years waiting to be cleared.  Many doctors and dermatologists are pushing products that can ruin your body even when a lot of them know it will only make it worse and cause you to cough up more cash.

 

That's not every doctor and dermatoligist.  Many of them actually try to help their patients, and not put them down with rude comments so that they will keep coming back.  Just know that there are a lot of corrupt people trying to make money off of you.

 

 

 

How I cleared my cystic acne (in case you give a #@!$)

 

 

I'm done forwarding my "agenda."  I just want to end this by letting you know that after 7 years of cystic acne, I got kicked out of that prison that my family was holding me in, and I was able to clear my skin by getting tests done and finding out that I have food sensitivities!  (and chronic constipation, but that's unrelated)

 

 

So, what do you think?

Ignoring the cure and corruption paragraphs (though you can weigh in on that too if you'd like)

 

P.S.

Also, I'm not trying to say you have to go natural to cure your acne, I'm just letting you know what helped ME. I know we all have different causes and situations.

I'm also not trying to bash medical professionals.  I'm just saying if they are ever mean to you, you're not in their best intentions.  There really are people out there who just want to make money off of you.




#3463245 Masturbation / Acne Experiement 2010 // 2011 // 2012 !

Posted by Melloman on 09 December 2014 - 10:41 AM

I used to think masturbation caused my acne as you can see from last years post.

my acne is almost clear now.


Turns out it was food sensitivities causeing all my problems.  makes since because of my shitty diet in the past,and ths "western diet" we are on.  bunch of crap in our food, man!  

I suggest you all get tests done for your body.  that's the only real way to cure it.  even if masturbation affects your acne, stopping the masturbation wont cure it for good.  there's an underlying issue that needs to be addressed.




#3463215 What The Hell Happened?

Posted by Melloman on 09 December 2014 - 06:29 AM

 

 

 

 

 

 

It doesn't get any better from this point, unfortunately.

Don't listen to this guy. That's not what anyone needs to hear to make them feel better in a crap situation. I can relate so much to your story...Try out Dan's regimen plz!!! It has worked WONDERS for me. I cannot tell you how grateful I am. Yes, I still have a big ol zit on my cheek just begging to be popped, but it's ONLY ONE ZIT. not 20 at a time like I used to have. lol. topical Rx creams have nothing on the regimen. 

 


Listen to him if you like fairy tales.

Actually, Temperatecent, I am a girl. and no, that's not a fairy tail, it's real life and it's definitely achievable with the right treatment/mindset. Perhaps it is you who is in a fairy tail world of misery. Maybe if you pulled your head out of your ass you can see that not everybody can cope with their problems with  negativity. Pray tell me, does your pessimism help you cope with your acne? 

 

Why did you refer to me as a "guy", Jack? How do you know my gender? Can you show me some proven techniques to get rid of acne forever? The right "mindset" will do nothing to help you if your body doesn't respond - there's a woman on this forum in her 30's (who is much more polite than me) who has tried everything at this point and nothing has worked for her acne. She will have it the rest of her life. 

 

Pessimism is irrelevant. I can pretend to be happy about it or angry about it and it won't have any effect on how I look. I used to be naive and figured that I would eventually clear up my acne but after years of failed treatments and thousands of dollars wasted I have realized that there's no hope.
 

At this point a sex change seems to be the only thing I haven't tried to get rid of acne, but my derm and people on here said that wouldn't work anyway.

lol are you really trying to call me out about referring to you as a guy? I'm pretty sure that you didn't care that much in your first reply. I use that term universally. He's a guy, she's a guy, whatever. I think that pessimism/optimism is absolutely relevant to how you look. those who exude confidence seem to look better on the exterior than those who are too busy wallowing in their own insecure self misery... feel free to pm me if you need further clarification-but I'm not gonna go back and forth with you on this thread...it was created by someone else and this is getting off-topic. 

Cool, I didn't know that my acne will clear up just by being less pessimistic. Can you show me the medical website that you found this information from? I want to read more about it.

Be optimistic and not pessimistic. I'm proof of that empirical fact. I cured my acne by having a positive, habitually, obsessive mindset that I would defeat acne. I not only destroyed my acne, but this positive mindset permeated throughout my life in a positive way. I'm now very successful and live a very happy life. This positive mindset I cultivated has transmuted it to success. PM me comrade, I will help you defeat acne forever. Be happy for acne; it is a blessing in disguise.

I agree.  Being optimistic can save you from many situations and pull you through, including with acne.  It's a very important aspect, but is often overlooked and underrated.

 

But may I ask how you cured your acne?  I'm prolly gonna visit your profile simce I don't expect there will be a hasty response.
