This Lighting Makes My Heart Melt Omg, Everyone Says I Have Smooth Skin Because They Can't See The Scars,it Isn't That Deep But That's How They Look I

Recommended Posts

Likely acne conglobata, the 2nd most destructive type there is. The 1st is actually a derivative of AC called acne fulminans, which is basically a runaway ulcerative version of AC that will viciously maul and obliterate any trace of normal skin you have, leaving you horrifically disfigured with super-atrophic scarring. Thankfully, there have only ever been 100 or so cases documented. But its out there......

So remember, kids, as bad as you have it it could always be much, much worse.

The darker looks better to me. The lighter one probably looks better to you because you can't see the depth of the scars from that lighting and angle. The darker one looks better to me because the color blends n more with your skin.

Omg, my heart really goes out to those people. I couldn't even begin to imagine how they must feel to go through such things. Such unfairness. Makes me really really love my skin. Poor people. :(

@Johnny, like someone else said on your other thread (and no need to keep starting new threads xD), start with dermastamping once every 4-8 weeks. Read up on it and different topicals you could use first before you try it out. And try to keep your face moisturized while healing. Your scars really aren't that bad, I think the main problem isn't the indents themself, but rather the discoloration. Once your tone evens out, the scars will be hardly noticeable in my opinion.

I'd like to see somebody tell those people "don't let it stop you from living your life/girls won't even notice it if you're confident/your skin doesn't define you".

at that point its just impossible. Its like telling someone with an amputated arm that 'no one will notice it'.

The difference being that amputation is a third-party alteration of your biology, which makes it more socially acceptable due to it not being perceived as a fundamental genetic flaw the way a disfiguring skin disease is. We're biologically hardwired to seek out strong, healthy mates and good skin is subconsciously a part of that appraisal.

Oh my. Those photos really put things into perspective. I usually hate my skin, but that made me feel as if I should be grateful for it. At the same time I feel so horrible that anybody has to suffer that way.
