:) ha ha. You're right Keith.

Not being nasty nikki but this is a silly thread. You see the whole messageboard is about people sharing experiences to best remedy acne scars. You want your own personal summary.

Different scars, different treatments.

Dealing with acne scars is not a cosmetically easy challenge for the indivdual, surgeon or dermatologist. Being a member here for a while and I think you'll start to know the long, short and the tall of available treatments as they stand at present.

well, I think, this thread is a very good idea. I liked it.

Most of the other threads are specific to particular treatments and type of problems.

Here people can post a summary of their experiences. So, this will also serve as a place for exit posts :) when someone got good results and don't plan to be active on the forum.

For a newcomer, this would be like an index of the book and if anyone is more interested, they can go the respective thread for more details.

hello Nikki,

I know some things make it better. Sleep and water help diminish the appearance. Dermabrasion can help smooth them out. I hear Thermage can reorganize the collagen and smooth out scars. I am trying saline injections now and it seems to help but I am just beginning. I am using Skin Biology products and they do help in a little way. The skin becomes clearer and of uniform color and a bit tighter. Nothing I have tried has really done anything significant.

I would have to agree with that awesomely handsome and very intelligent Rupert.. up the there ^^^

Ahh thanks BroKenFloWer :wub:

I'm more used to abuse here for being a little bit confrontational at times. A little hearty debate never hurt anybody. :D

As regards the thread, I'll throw in my dime.

Isolagen with subcision has totally levelled out my shallower scars and given my face a healthy plump look. Hasn't worked on a couple of deep fat based scars. Like Keith, going to get an excision in the near future. Most people I know who have had isolagen don't come to this board anymore due to their results. I keep my acne totally under control with my dermalux lamp (red/blue light) which I wish I'd know about sooner. I use it for 15 minutes a day.

Thats my summary....

... for what its worth.

I just got my first Coolglide treatment. I know you're not supposed to see results for several months, but it's looking promising. Could be because I'm using tns recovery complex too? And drinking water/lemon? Was doing the vinegar thing and that seemed to make a difference after just a week, but then I started Coolglide and tns and didn't know how all that would interact. As it is, I think I have too many variables! My scars are fairly shallow and saucerlike. Look like huge pores for the most part. A couple of ice picks (these haven't changed at all). I'm just starting my "revision" process, so don't have too much to add!
