k...maybe i spoke too soon....the neutrogena peel is awesome.

it has taken a month of application....but my skin is more even toned...the redness has greatly reduced...and those horrible dark scars have competely faded eusa_dance.gif

Juhi, I got that last week and applied it twice uptil now on my face for mild scars. Nothing happened yet.

I don't know if this is strong enough but I will keep on using it for couple of months I guess.

How many times do you use it per week?

How long you keep it on before rinsing?

How long you massage before rinsing (as per instructions).

Just want to make sure I am doing it correctly cause it seems to work for you.

I try to remember that this site is constantly changing so I want to repeat what

I posted before, many moons ago, when my wife researched who I should see

to remove ~6 fairly deep scars on my left cheek. I saw ~5 big name derms

in NYC --- and they were all real good, but I choose Dr Marsha Gordon at

Mt Sinai's derm dept. (funny, I also saw Dr Melanie Grossman who is a major

laser researcher w/ 3 patents, and she said, Derek, NO F'N WAY will lasers help

you. This was pre-fraxel.) ... anyways, here was Marsha's plan: #1, use a mild

cleanser like Neutragena's Liquid Cleanser. Keep Cetaphil handy if your skin

gets too red/sensative/flaky/or you just want something milder. #2, Use one of

2 Moisturizers EVERY DAY + Sun Block by Clinque. #3, NOW HERE's why I had

to do steps 1 & 2 etc .... Use AVAGE cream every night. Or, Every other night

at first or if you get too red. Now, I don't know if this would work for YOU, but

it worked for me over ~8 months. I PEELED & PEELED .... Also, I even asked

Marsha if Dermabrasion (or spot Dermabrasion) would work & she said, "ummm,

Maybe, but why risk it. The Avage will steadily even out your scars. Just for

the record, I am VERY WHITE FACED with zero acne or acne marks or any marks

except those 6 scars ---- i'd say now, 2 years later, you can easily see 1 scar,

and faintly 2 others, and that's it. ***** Final PS: There is also a well known

PS in NYC , Dr Cap Lesesne (212-570-6318) ... Look up his web site because

there he uses Dermabrasion, but in a very superficial way. Marsha knew him

very well but still said the Avage cream would be much better. Good luck

guys.

hey life...i am leaving out the sucks part..smile.gif

lets see.....i used the scar peel atleast twice a week...i'd leave it for 30 minutes or so.....i know it says 10 minutes....but thats not good enough to fade scars.

just massage while rinsing.....be patient....as with any treatment...this ones takes time....if u have any redness...thats tends to go first...

cheers

This is only suppose to be available by prescription but I think this website will ship it to you without it. Seems quite pricy though. What's funny is the description seems to be contradictory and clearly said it will not work for everyone.

Here's a link about user ratings from acne.org but it appears most people are using it to get rid of acne and not scars.
