#3459011 What To Do For My Scars?

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 07 November 2014 - 09:35 AM

Am I missing something here - what scars?




#3454898 Ever Feel Suicidal?

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 07 October 2014 - 01:18 AM

I was desperate for anything that would help stop the acne. I even tried atheletes foot powder. I would lay under a sunlamp trying to burn away the acne. I was alwys sunburned back then. I used to lift weights, and then I figured that must be causing the acne so I stopped that. Nothing worked other than growing out of it. I still wonder if fasting would have helped at all. All the crazy ideas that went through my head.

With suicide and drpression a HOT topic at this time, maybe it is time to revisit this heroic thread. I see that ernestoria has not added to his thread since Feb. 2011. I do wish he would keep us updated. He showed quite an improvement.

#3452601 What Do You Guys Think Would Work Best For These Acne Scars?

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 18 September 2014 - 04:47 PM

I don't know that any of us will ever be really content. Re:pair gave me enough improvement that scars are not omnipresent in my mind. I am older than anybody else here so my next move is a facelift, and then I will see if I need any further Re:pair treatments. I am moving into another realm with plastic surgery to address the effects of aging. I am quite active and still working full time, and I am dating younger women, so I will Go Go Go until my body tells me No No No. LOL

I find myself posting less and less.  Go directly to Fraxel Re:Pair at high mj settings 60-70 mj, and high percentage 60%.  You will need several treatments spaced at least 6 months apart.  You can choose to dance with the other treatments, but you will eventually turn to Re:Pair.




#3446456 Question About Fraxel Repair Help!

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 10 August 2014 - 01:15 AM

Just look at my signature.  I did all the biggies trying to deal with my scars. I would say my major issue at this point is aging, so that is why my interest is turning towards plastic surgery.  I would not say that I have had a decline in the results from Re:pair in the 4 years since my last one.  I still feel tightness especially in the upper cheek.  There is a tightening effect from Re:pair, but it is not to the degree that a facelift would be.




#3446373 Question About Fraxel Repair Help!

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 09 August 2014 - 11:52 AM

How long did you wait in between treatments? When did you start seeing noticeable improvements? 

Yes, as you can tell by my signature I have had 5 Re:pairs with 75-80% improvement.  My confidence leaped 100%.  I am older and I am thinking about the combination Ultheraphy and a 6th Re:pair, or a facelift.  The key to Re:pair is high settings and multiple treatments.  You WILL NOT be satisfied with one treatment especially if you go too mild.  Re:pair is the Gold Standard of lasers.  Be wary of people who knock Fraxel because the vast majority of them are talking about Re:store.  Re:pair is serious stuff and not to be taken lightly.  Down time is generally 2 weeks and the 2nd day after my first Re:pair I was unrecoginizable because of the swelling.  By the 4th day the swelling was down.


I waited at least 6 months between Re:pairs. It takes about 3 months before you can really evaluate your skin because microswelling still exists. Each subsequent Re:pair was easier. It was after my 2nd laser that I realized the biggest improvement.

I never realized how high how the price was.  




#3441120 Tightening Skin

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 13 July 2014 - 09:26 AM

i've been through so much hell now that i am 37 i don't even feel normal anymore ...i think it has messed up my head so much i can never go back

 

Again as someone older than yourself, I can promise you that you can change your life in amazing ways.  You say you are in good shape and that is a great start.  I was a mess when I started my Re:pair treatments, and I have turned my life around and you can too.




#3436298 Just Had Ablative Fraxel:repair And Ultrapulse Co2 With Photos

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 15 June 2014 - 08:56 AM

CollegBoy84, congrats on going with Re:pair at 60%.  I recommend people go directly to Re:pair if they can handle it.  I always estimated 10% improvement with each subsequent Re:pair beginning with #3, so if you think you got 15% that is great.  I have referred several people to your postings to show them how the protocol should be run.  So many people just refuse to do it right, and come away disappointed.




#3436150 Is It Safe To Assume That The Best Scar Treatment Is Acceptance?

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 14 June 2014 - 08:35 AM

KayJayM, as one who has done more serious treatments than most, I am not into acceptance.  I have 100% more confidence than I had in 2008, and I can't put a price tag on that.  People will think nothing of laying down 40k for a frigging pickup truck, but won't spend 5k on what they really need.  I was losing hair so I went out and got a great hair transplant.  Just this morning I was laying the groundwork for plastic surgery to fight the effects of aging.  I was cursed with acne, but I was blessed with a good mind and body.  Here I go quoting Hamlet AGAIN!

 

"To be, or not to be: that is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?"

I tried it in combination with dermarolling and I was not impressed.




#3424170 Is My Face Ruined By Dermabrasion?

Posted by DudleyDoRight on 03 April 2014 - 03:22 PM

Jenny, you need to step outside this forum and contact a teaching hospital. There is no way you should be that red after 8 months. That is what I looked like immediately after dermabrasion. Step up your nutrition. That doctor is a butcher. Also contact a lawyer. This is much more serious than I first thought. We are all on your side so please keep us informed. What country are you in?

I admit that I know nothing about fillers, but I thought this might be informative for others considering fillers.
