Can anyone tell me what happened with beautifulambition?

I had Infini treatment several times. I got grid marks but only during recovery. However, I saw on someone's beauty blog that the grid marks were present after recovery and she got the same treatment done. Her website and YouTube are not available now but this is her: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/396598310917765223/. Does this mean it will happen to you? There are so many variables like doctor's skill level, depth, area of treatment. I can't tell you what's going to happen unfortunately.

I think you should keep some guard up but not totally dismiss those people you mentioned. It sucks that money has to be a focal point when we discuss these people but the more important thing is: are they providing good treatment plans?

My best chance right now is Emil but if I have concerns about his usual Genius treatment as my skin is highly sensitive I am in no big rush to book a consult. Thanks for the link.  

Recently I witnessed how a doctor with a large followership just stole the before/ afters of a scar patient and used them to promote his work. He took them down after he got reported massively. Disappointing.

Actually, it is ridiculous to include in many posts to new users to send a DM to someone soliciting currency. And wording it almost like BA would before he stopped commenting under the beautifulambition username. 

I see that you joined May 20, but seem to know a lot with 20 something posts.

Other than BA, no one has ever made this claim about Dr. Rullan the way you did. I also know that BA referred users to the FAQ page with those threads as examples and not aware of any other user doing so like this.

This post looks like something BA would type up, not a newer user.

This was on the first page of this thread. What new user would make such a defense for BA? BA wasn't giving advice anymore and more than half the ebook was deleted already. 

The fact that these users (hlp334, Nick Corona, SqueezeMcQueen) jump on this thread after I showed proof of the shady posts is VERY suspicious. Who defends a random person that decided not to help people in the forum in an effort to make money through DMs? Added to this is the fact that BA is proven to be a neurotic individual, and I have no doubt BA is lurking hourly to watch what's typed on the forum. Burners? Not burners and just odd folks? It's 2020, who knows haha. 

Hey @Dan can you step in? I don’t want this to escalate further.

This is ridiculous. Another user recommending someone to BA does not mean it’s him in disguise. I’ve referred some people to him myself because I thought he knew what he was talking about. I’ve PM’d him personally and he gave me his opinion of my scars. I’m not holding his evaluation as gospel, but it was a resource and it was free. There’s no harm to want to share that.

I agree on this aspect. And when BA is giving free advice under the terms and condition of this site, it is not a bad thing to do.

But now that we know he has conflict of interest, we should take care on engaging him further or recommend his service to other people. This community is intended to be free resource.

Yeah, I agree. When he was free, I thought it was a no-brainer to PM him for an opinion, but now that he charges, I’m more hesitant, considering we don’t really know who he is. I want to be optimistic, and say that not everybody knew about his transition. I mean, that was the purpose of this thread in the first place.

I personally have nothing against him, appreciate the time he took to write to me, even though his advice was an oversell. What I find disturbing is that valuable helpful content is being taken down from this board and redirected to a paid website. I also have serious difficulty to trust a business with no name and face behind it, especially when it comes to medical advice.

This is just my opinion, I don't oblige you to see things my way.

Yeah, I don’t like that either. It’s greedy and a dick move for sure, but I mean, he has gotten a lot of recommendations over the years from this site and infamously from Dr. Lim that to me, it just made sense.

 

And yeah, I hate that he took down valuable information. I followed a few of the “successful story” threads from his ebook when it was still up, and I was thinking of making a post with links to them, for the newcomers. Those have a lot of good information and they have progress photos too.

Yes, true and had he revealed his name, I wouldn't have any problem with his consulting business. But hiding behind a false avatar means we have no clue about potential huge conflict of interests. For all we know he could be a staff member of some of the doctors who refers scar sufferers to a small number of doctors. We don't know who is behind BA's avatar. I really don't understand all the secrecy and mystery even after he established a consulting business.

Please, do it , if you've got a bit of time :) it's going to be helpful. Also a link to the good doctors, please.

Unfortunately, I didn’t quite write down all the doctors he had in his ebook. I just kinda got what I needed and ran with it. But if you need some ideas of doctors in NJ, PA or NY, I could potentially help you out. I live around there.

 

I know if you asked, BA would give you the full book. I never did because I thought it would stay up :|. But I’m thinking that someone on this site must have asked for and gotten it. If we could find someone, maybe they could give some of the info back.

Unfortunately he sent me a link of his e-book pinned on the board and now it's gone. I think the admin Dan recently wrote a very good overview of the different scars and the treatment options as well. 

Thanks, but I live in the UK currently. :)Here there is only Dr Anil that I would recommend, although I didn't get good results with him, his treatment options are decent and he's got experience with subcision, PRP and TCA -CROSS.

Oh, I didn’t know that was how he did it. That’s so cruel.

 

And Dan’s write up looks to have good information, although it is more optimistic than what BA normally preached. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.

I never liked BA. He hijacked basically every threads and talked down future treatments. I called him out a long time ago. 
 

Todays treatments arent good enough. End of story. Some might help, but you have no guarantee for success. It can even make your scars worse. And it takes to much time and money also. 
 

Whats interesting is what kind of treatments are possible in the future?

what is wrong with you guys. xD I feel like im in a game of mafia and dont know who to trust. at least i can eat my popcorn and enjoy the show

At the end of the day, just go to a trusted doctor and do your homework. these are all random people on the internet and who knows, maybe every account here is a BA burner and one side is using reverse psychology to trick us into thinking they dont like BA just so we defend BA. just find a doctor in person and dont listen to these ppl cuz this is just ridiculous xDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Take everything you read with a grain of salt. Personally I'm following only the scar treatment journeys with photos from now on.

I understand where you're coming from, but it's fair to be disappointed with current treatments. Treatments like subcision and TCA CROSS are modestly helpful, but even those may not give some people amazing results. Scar treatment plans normally require multiple procedures, which is not something most people can justify paying for.

Progression in the hands of the medical community, it's out of your hands. You can have progress now. If you don't like the extent of progress possible, don't. A lot of us would prefer to improve our quality of life today as time is precious.

From my experience, there are probably 4 or 5 top doctors in the US who actually gets great results from their acne scar treatments. If you are not going to any one of those doctors than it's just a waste of time and money. So not sure why getting advise from BA would help.

Hey do you know any good docs in PA. Currently living in Pittsburgh but can't find anyone who does acne scar treatment. I heard about Ringpfeil Dermatology in Philly. Anyone in NJ, NY is good too.

Reflections in NJ, Karolak in NJ, and Khrom in NY are names that are coming to mind. Results may vary per individual so it’s important to find a doctor that meets your needs and that makes you feel comfortable. ^_^

So I came back to this site because I remember messaging BA due to Dr David's recommendation about him. He gave me really detailed reply over my scars which I really appreciated and made sure he know that as I was hesitant to post about my scars on public forums over here due to privacy concerns. 

Now when I read this thread I just checked my messages with him, only to be seen that he has edited all his messages with me with a dot and all that information he shared is now erased.

Hello,

I see from time to time BA was recommending up to 8 subcisions needed? Is it not too much? Does it make sence?

I saw very good emprovement after 1st session, not much after 2nd an 3rd, it just stayed the same.
