In Topic: Does Retin-A Permanently Diminish The Appearance Of Pitted Acne Scars?

no retin a doesnt get rid of pitted acne scars

 

Well I've heard from other users on here/other websites that Retin-A is a collagen boosting product, it will apparently tighten/plump the skin and diminish the look of pitted acne scars.


In Topic: Has Anyone Used These Make-Up Products To Conceal Pitted Acne Scars?

If you have any deep scars..Dermaflage. Seriously, stuff is AMAZING. It's a topical filler that gives the illusion of smooth skin, the only downside to it is the scar can't be too wide (anymore than an inch and a half) or it won't move well with facial expressions. I use it on my two deepest scars and it instantly transforms my face.

 

 To be honest, though, I find it really difficult to apply any foundation other than airbrush for moderate-severe scarring. Even if you can get it to look perfect, after a few hours it tends to not look so good...cream based foundation just sinks in too easily even with a primer (my experience anyway). Airbrush makeup is the only thing I can consistently get to look good and last all day and actually look like my own skin. 

 

I've tried Enkore's tips and my skin looked great for about two hours before it started to look cakey and unnatural. Although the salmon concealer really does work well to neutralize the shadow of the scars, it just didn't hold up for me.

 

I've looked into Dermaflage and apparently it comes in a very small tube and isn't all that useful if you have a handful of scars like me because it'll run out so fast. :/

 

Have you tried the Ben Nye Tattoo Cover Enkore suggests? It looks awesome in his video but I don't know how I feel about wearing what's basically stage makeup everyday.

When I first came across your post, I was going to move it over to the scars and red marks thread. Since so much of your post is concerning makeup I will leave it here.

It might be worth you posting over in that area and see what their success is with coverage. Not everyone over there is doing laser treatments and chemical peels. Some are using products. So it might be wise to ask over there. You might get more success. I'm thinking not many posters from that thread come into the cosmetic thread. smile.png

Just an idea.

 

I was thinking of posting it there but thought it may have more success over here. But thanks, I'll post this over there as well!

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

 

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

Putting on make-up even when you're not going anywhere because you can't have your roommates seeing your acne!! (What a waste of make-up...)
