deep, ugly boxcar scars. I have severe depression from this horror on my face. I don’t think any treatment will work.

I agree. Stay strong! There are procedures that really do help. TCA CROSS can work wonders. And other things can really help too. See a really good dermatologist/plastic surgeon who specializes in acne scar treatment, and then get a second opinion. And keep us posted please.

Hey, I feel your pain, also a female with acne scars and it sucks really bad. But don’t lose hope, you can get a lot of improvement. I’m just starting my acne scar treatment journey and I know it’s going to be a long and grueling process but it feels good to finally be able to do something about this shit that has made me feel so awful for so many years. I know it’s hard but keep your chin up and try to have faith, it’ll keep you going. ❤️

How old are these scars? They look fresh to me. If it's so get treatment asap and you might have great % improvement. I think subcision tca cross and fractional ablative laser, a few sessions, will give you noticeable improvement. Don't lose faith or let your skin get you down. I find it hard sometimes to follow my own advice but it's what we have to do.

Literally waited 8 months after accutane to start treatment. I did dermarolling with some subcision on the 27th of April. How much percentage improvemenet do you reckon I can get? I’m looking for a dermatologist in Ireland could you advise me one?

The scars look red and still fresh to me maybe you'll get more improvement naturally as your skin heals completely. Dermarolling is too mild for your scars in my opinion. Try to get some laser especially if you're white. I also think tca cross will give you very nice improvement for the sharp edges. Unfortunately I don't know anybody in Ireland. I personally am seeing Dr Davide in France. But I heard from people who I am in contact with per personal messages about a doctor. People have had great success with her as I learned today. I might go see her if I don't have results with Davide. Hope this helps.

Does she treat severe scarring like mine? Maybe those good results are only for superficial scarring
