In Topic: Scars Looking Worse W/ Retin A At 12 Weeks...time To Stop?

Today, 11:39 AM

Misinformation runs rampant on this forum. One only has to issue a statement that retin-a causes scars and people run with it without doing any research. I battled this for years with lasers, and finally decided to let people believe what they will. This is why I seldom post anymore. People flock to the negative.

Retina-A Micro (tretinoin) is a topical acne agent. It is used for treating acne vulgaris, smoothening of fine wrinkles, and fading hyper-pigmentation of aged skin. The most common side effects are peeling, excessive dry skin, burning, stinging, erythema, and pruritus. Photosensitivity also occurs. Therefore, sunlight exposure should be minimized while using Retin-A Micro.

In Topic: Feeling Old, Can Anyone Recommend Something?

Of course I recommend Fraxel Repair. Did you read my post 'Did you ever have any pimples'? I posted that to instill hope. I never thought anybody would ever say that to me. Repair is the only thing that ever did any good for me. Remember when you read forums that negative people are more likely to post than satisfied customers. By the way, I am old, and my final touch will be a facelift.

Once you have had scars you always think they are the center point of your life. I have had good success with Repair, but in my eyes I am not where I want to be, and I don't think that will ever go away. With her saying that to me it was like WOW maybe people see me in a better image than what I thought, and it was an ego boost. This girl is knockout beautiful, way too young for me, but who am I to argue.

You are testing my memory banks, but I believe it was under 11k for all 5, with the first one costing 5k because Re:pair was brand new at the time.

well first come prepared and by that i mean do your own research and educated yourself so you know whatsup then ask them questions about they can do for your skin and basically question everything/ask questions 


they are very friendly so yeah dont be embarass tell them your skin problems and be specific

YES!!  Do the research before you ever consult a doctor, because they will only recommend what they offer in their office.
