I'm a 40 yr old male with varying degrees of scarring over 60% of my back. I had severe cystic acne from age 19 to about 30. I have mostly depression type scarring, but also some elevated scarring as well.

I had one chemical peel 2 yrs ago but was not happy with the result and am not willing to endure that pain again. Can anyone help with some info or the name of a specialist using any recommended techniques?

My method of dealing with my problem up to this point in my life has been avoidance and denial. I'm now ready to seek out the right treatment.

At first i thought what happened to scarred-for-life the usual poster here. But now i realize that his name is scarred4life.

Keep reading this forum into 20 or so pages or do a search on back scarring you will find something.

I have two surgical scars on my back. I joke about the 16 stitch one and say i got bitten by a shark. People actually believe me to. I don't worry about them though because there was nothing i could do to stop my back from being lacerated.
