In Topic: Wondering If This Article's Treatments Actually Work?

Umm from all that I've read, this does not sound like something that would get rid of scars. Collagen cream could possibly help soften some scars but I personally just don't think it will completely diminish scars. Papaya does have good enzymes in It for the skin and is very moisturizing & soothing on the skin, especially cold papaya from fridge applied to face during hot summer day's, but again I highly doubt this will remove scars but I'm sure it will soften your overall complexion.

If you have shallow acne scars try a dermapen or roller at home and use some collagen inducing topicals afterwards like a vitamin c serum. Over time this should help your scars.

 

Thank you!! I've seen you in the scar forums quite a bit recently, do you think you could tell me some more of what you've found out from your scar treatment research? You can private message me if you want or just answer here. :) I think I'll be posting some pics to help determine whether or not my scars are considered shallow.

I have a difficult time using anything cream based to soften my scarring. Instead, I've discovered that airbrush makeup can dramatically help to soften the edges of my scarring. With acne scarring, it takes skill to carefully blend foundation in and around the scar as not to further emphasize the indentation. With airbrush makeup, I can create and even layer all over without having to "blend" it and so it sort of creates an illusion of smoother skin. It's hard to explain, but nonetheless it works very well for me. I also use Dermaflage for two of my deepest scars on my cheeks. Although not perfect, combined with airbrushing, my skin goes from awful to decent. 

 

Hmm, I've never heard of airbrush makeup. Are there specific brands/products you use?

Chemical peels might be helpful. I think glycolic acid help mine a bit.

 

Do you have any names of specific products you could recommend?

for me, dermablend was too cakey and too think, and it also oxidized on my skin. I use maybeline's fitme concealer , and it helps with indented scarring as well because it has hyaluronic  acid that helps fill in small holes. Plus, it's less pricey than dermablend.

 

Do you recommend just the Fitme concealer or the foundation and powder as well? And did it break you out at all?

Thank you! Good to know there's another Youtuber out there who can vouch for Dermablend.
