celebrity gets acne scars removed - proof is in new movie

Recommended Posts

there is a celebrity who got his acne scars removed... he did something to it because you can't notice it anymore. i don't know his name but maybe if I name the movies he's played in, maybe you can figure it out.

all his moves in the past, you notice his mild acne scars, but in his recent movie in JohnQ, his scars seemed almost all gone, even in the sun. Actually, I didn't notice any scars at all. (I believe it was in the movie JohnQ - it could have been in another movie.) You know when your skin is oily then at certain angles in the sun you can notice acne scars - but in this movie, you can't see any acne scars.

Okay, the actor is an American white male, now in his 40's or something. Thin body. Brownish hair. He played in the movie "John Q" as one of the police chiefs. Other movies were the one where he was the lover of a mother-daughter con-artist team starring JenniferLoveHewitt and some other lady... I forgot the name of this movie. He's been in many movies. When I saw his new face, I was surprised! Maybe he found the cure for acne scars! Anybody know the guy's name? Or what he did?

One of his older movies Goodfellas (great movie by the way) Ray still has the same amount of scarring, and if anything looks better in that movie than Identity. So, if he had work done its not that noticable. I would think if he WERE to get work done it would be an HT (hair transplant) more than his acne scars, just an assumption.

It's very possible that Liotta ( and other stars with scars) might just be getting botox or collagen injections in the scars every few weeks while shooting a film.

Botox and collagen will fill in most acne scars excellently, but just for a few weeks or a couple of months before it begins to degrade.

I had collagen injected into the few rolling type ( or boxcar) scars I have and they literally disapeared, but just for a short time before they reapeared due to the substance degrading.

Collagen is not a permanent solution for acne scars. But if you had Liotta's money you could fly in a doctor anytime you wanted to fill in your scars, temporarily.

ray liotta came to singapore around the mid-nineties and gave an interview to our local newspaper. he candidly admitted having work done to improve his acne scars. if i recall correctly, he said it was dermabrasion.

That's interesting about the botox. I had wondered myself if it would work, but dismissed it because it's not marketed for scars.

Maybe it would work. You can only use it on the forehead and eye area though...right? :-k

Ive seen alot of Liottas films, his scarring is very deceptive-sometimes in one scene you think he isnt scarred at all then in another, it must be lighting or whatever, you just say oh yeah there they are as opposed to say someone like Edward James Elmos whose are always noticeable.

Something no-one has mentioned is the use of skin camouflage which i would say has improved over the years and being an actor he would have the best specialists that can be found

I thought you shouldn't use it around the mouth. I'd want to use it on the sides of my chin. I don't think I'd be able to talk since it paralyzes the muscles.

I'll have to look into this...

Thanks Johnny smile.gif

I heard that people who have a predisposition to rheumatoid arthritis shouldn't use collagen. My grandmother has it, so I won't attempt it.

I never even put 2+2 together about the Botox(duh). I guess that's not an option for me either.
