In Topic: Bad Acne Scars After Accutane Treatment

05 April 2015 - 12:30 AM

First of all clear up your acne, if one course of Accutane did not help try another one. Doing treatments while having so much active acne can result in even more acne and infections. Dermarolling/Dermastamp wont help much in my opinion, you need to do lasers such as Fraxel Repair or Deep FX. 


Also, maybe abit unorthodox, but look into Dutasteride, I have been taking it for my hair loss and I have noticed that it helped my skin also. Hair loss & acne are caused by DHT, Dutasteride is very effective at blocking DHT.



In Topic: Scars Are Ruining Me

14 January 2015 - 04:09 AM

I'm 17, female and in college. My life is stressful as it is at the moment. In a previous post I explained how I've had acne for around 6 years now, even when the spots aren't there it's clear that I don't have good skin, and honestly it's killing me.
My self confidence is shattered, I won't talk to people long enough for them to look at me, I turn away during conversations, I cover my face with anything possible, my hand, a scarf etc.
whilst compared to some my scars are moderate and I guess I shouldn't complain, but it has ruined me completely. I don't know what to do, I'm young and I can't afford laser treatment or skin peels. I spend almost all of my time looking on cosmetic surgery websites and skin clinics...if anyone has any advice please, please help me.

Where are you from? There are different treatments available in Europe vs the US for example. I can probably give you some advice as I have done many treatments. Also what type of scars do you have? Any pictures?

y would there be something like that??? 8/




If you are talking about the dating site part of my post, then for the same reason there are dating sites for people with disabilities, hep-c, mental conditions, age specific etc. Some people like to socialize with people who share similar problems/issues/interests/hobbies.

Swimming is a very very bad idea imo, especially during/after Accutane, if you are talking about swimming pools. Will irritate your skin even more(slow down the healing).


Could you tell me the docs name please either on here/private message? NY is one of the places I will visit next month to speak with some of the Docs that make sense to me(aka not just pushing their laser treatments) from Realself based on their answers and ratings,will see what they suggest for my acne scarring, you are welcome to join me if you want. For some of my deepest scars I would be interested in what doctors who perform silicone fillers(aka instant permanent solution) can do, only thing I want to make sure is that the doc is "legit" as those require a lot of skill, but results are awesome(one of the docs i plan on visiting & talk about my scars and how they can be improved with silicone fillers: http://www.barnettde...ments.php?id=24). Got around 3-4 doctors that I am looking at in NY currently, each of them specializes in something non-laser related, so hopefully they will be more objective than the laser (1 treatment & done) docs.


My scarring is very very similar to what you have, I can post some pics, but I dont want to derail/hijack your topic.
