amzing product for those annoying holes/ICE PICK SCARS!!

Recommended Posts

EDIT by MODERATOR - The original poster of this article was found to be using another user's gallery pics and claiming them as their own improvement pictures. Please do not take ss14's statements as truthful/unbiased as they have not returned to comment ever since this descrepancy was pointed out.

Its called AcneFree Scar eraser. It so claims to fade away red marks and reduce the apperacne of pock marks (icepick scars)by using hydroquinone and oxygen-peptide A. Well it did a micale for me :D , my acne which was completly but that had nothing to do wit the cream..my life saver accutane did that but the annoying red marks and ice pick left behind made it seem like nothing had changed.

The hydroquinone did a little for my red marks but i was amazed my how mcuh ice pick scars were filled up. Now all i do is put on some foundation for the redness and it my face looks like i never had acne before. i thoguth laser or something extrem was the only way i could have my annoying ice picks reduced (which are not that deep juss shallow )but ive seen nothing in the market for icepick scar period. so im glad theres atleast someting for the shallow ones. Thank you God!!!! for saving my face.....

juss so u guys dont go out there and waste ur money this is the kind of scars it would work for which i had ...[attachmentid=5951]

These are too deep to be all removed by juss cream, u can give it a shot. It may reduce them a lil and if nothing it would atleast reduce your brown acne marks

[attachmentid=5952]

EDIT: alot of u are getting mislead. This cream is no doubt, good and it def worked for me but alot of u seem to think that this is better thn laser its NOT. My scars were juss shallow enough to have cream make them disapear but for those deeper ones u are def better off wit a laser as ive said above.

u guys are gettin me wrong....those are NOT my before and after.

The first picture is the kind of scars something the cream would improve..it the kind of sccars i had (a little worse thn that picture) .

The second picture is the kind of scars you are better of using surgery, i mean u could try the cream it may improve it a little but it would never clear it up

yes i have the link.. u can order it at http://www.acnefree.com/node/39

it has money back guarantee so u if dont like it return it but def give it a chance cuz it did a lot for me

He said his are a bit deeper than the first pic. I think this could work as it has peptides in it and I have been using a high end product with peptides, the alloette cellular correcting complex, and seen some results. I think I may go to this cheaper one and see what happens. Although, you are not supposed to use hydroquinone for a long period of time because it is said to be carcinogenic, but it is only 2% and not the prescription 5%. My scars are wider with thick edges so this probably won't be a miracle but if it helps it is cheap enough!

I love it. I posted a thread about this like ages ago. I used that on much less severe scars than the picture and it improved or mainly rid my face of everything but 1 raised scar and 3 small ice pick scars.

I still use it everyday.

Mine were a little worse thn the "better picture" ...its almost gone now. The box claims that the results can take from the very next day to up to 2weeks. i was one of the lucky ones as i saw results the very next day :D probably cuz i wasnt expecting anything since ive used million products. But give it a shot for 2 weeks if u really see nothing it has a gurantee on it and juss reutrn it

and as for how much of the improvment...its not completly gone but u can only notice it if u come really close and stare at it so almmost/completly gone!!! :dance:

" Question:

ANSWER:

the hydroquinone as the box claims is suppose to work with red marks but ive read that alot articles that say it meant more for the perment marks. So if u had acne for along time and some marks juss wont go away on their own this would work since it ligtens (bleaches) ur skin.

And as for the ice pick scars it uses oxygen-peptide A, that raise the scar. The results stay..Its not temporary, because it fixes ur collegen. but u can email them too just to be sure. google scarfree and ull get theri offical website

What is hydroquinone topical?

â€Â¢ Hydroquinone topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed here.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using hydroquinone topical?

â€Â¢ Do not use hydroquinone topical on skin that is sunburned, windburned, dry, chapped, or irritated, or on an open wound. It could make these conditions worse. Wait until these conditions have healed before applying hydroquinone topical.

â€Â¢ Before using hydroquinone topical, talk to your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease, use other topical medications on the affected area, have allergies to medications, or have other medical problems. You may not be able to use hydroquinone topical, or you may require a dosage adjustment or special monitoring during treatment.

â€Â¢ Hydroquinone topical is for external use only.

â€Â¢ Wash your hands before and after applying this medication, unless the treated area involves the hands.

â€Â¢ Do not apply hydroquinone topical to the eyes, lips, or inside of the nose or mouth. Accidental application of hydroquinone topical to the lips may cause numbness of the lips and/ or a medicinal taste in the mouth.

the acne free does not have the percentage of hydroquinone in it that most of the information warrants. There are 50% stronger fomulas that can be bought from the dermo.

The stuff definately made the redness fade away and what was once indents are level and at the most only seen from close up under harsh lights, with differin on. The 4 that never went away were ice pick scars and a slightly raised scar. Works amazingly on lighter indents though.

Hmmm I am almost at a year of using it every day. I do remember it faded out my red really fast but the indents took most of a 5 month course of accutane to really improve significantly. I really like the stuff and am glad I used it. Funny this is like the ONLY acne scar treatment on the market and few people on here have ever seriously used it.

Also lots of people use hydroquinone, copper peptides, and a number of other things alone to fight acne scars, when this is a combination of them in an easy to use rub. I use the moisturizer and sunblock that comes with it when I am out in the sun.

I was really skeptical of this product untill I realized it was made by University Medical. I used to love their deep wrinkle patches which I would use under my eyes. They would totally erase my wrinkles ... at least for the day but still they were great for nights before parties .... etc. The fda banned them since they claimed false advertisement or something and I can no longer find them anywhere.. I will have to try this product since I think it really might work...

Lol they prob infringed on another companies copyright. They make a lot of retail products that are exact knockoffs of infomercial and QVC products.

I wouldnt lie to any of u though, the stuff does work like it says.

well the cream is doing little for my red marks but it working mircles for my indented skin but i am happy about it cuz there are million products out there for red marks but nothing for the indented marks.

QUESTION, did u have any side effects at all...after a week of using this cream i could notice that my skin on my face was juss a little but still noticably darker thn my neck...i am tan skin so i get tan very easily but never had it been tanned this fast.

QUESTION2also my cream is in a brownish shade.. i know there are some fu#ked up ppl out there who buy stuff and thn fill it with something else and return it. ive seen this same product come in white and brown? is this normal?
