I live in Dallas, but will be in San Diego in the next few weeks for a "touch up" on a procedure I had last fall. I'd love to pop in if you guys have a meeting! Also, san jose, I think I had the same procedure as you (exoderm) & I'd love to see you and swap notes since you seem to have had such a positive experience.

Hey PocketAces (aka Colin) and Dan T. and whoever else - do you guys want to start a group in Dallas? It can be like a "real" support group where you don't have to give your last name, etc. if you don't want to & we can meet in a public place. There is such a group in Washington D.C. and it has been very successful for the past 10 years or so & is still growing. I think it would be very helpful b/c we've all had so much experience in this field (well, I've had dermabrasion, exoderm, punch floats, millions of peels, microderm, etc. & used EVERY product including Tazorac & RetinA in EVERY strength, copper peptides, vitamin C, every conceivable sunscreen & home peel, etc. etc. etc.!!!!) I think I'd be a good thing - what do you guys think?

I'm from Orange County.. Still haven't found a good derm. I use to go to Doctor Fulton, but he's the reason I have scars and he got sued and had to relocate. Not from me, but other people he had treated for acne.

Have you seen Dr. Fitzpatrick in La Jolla? He is very expensive but he is known as the king of lasers. He is as reputable as Tina Alster in Washington D.C. The consultations are free. I had an appointment this last Tues. but I missed it. It takes about one month to see him because he is booked.

No I haven't seen him yet. What do you think about my scarring?

I think your scarring does not detract much from your looks and you are lucky they are only located on those 2 lower areas of your face. I understand wanting to improve them though and how they might make you feel self conscious at times. What treatments have you been considering? One side is hardly noticeable. I have very shallow scars like the ones on that side but they are on my mid cheek combined with scarred pores so it looks much worse. How did Dr. Fulton cause your scars? A few years ago I was considering him also but I think his consultation fee was too high. Isnt he the one who invented Retin- A ?

If you do it some time in the summer, I might be around and could possibly show up, depending on when I go back down again. I don't have a car when I'm in the LA area, though.

Hey Blueeyesurfer. I was looking at your scars in your pictures, and you have good skin. If i had your scars i wouldn't even think twice about my skin. Even Britney Spears and Brad Pitt have more scars on their face than you do. I think subcision will prolly improve your scars dramatically. I wouldn't even be touching my skin if i had your skin.

Ok ....for the rest of you... why are you guys afraid to show your face? We are all in the same boat.

"extractions" as they called it caused my scarring. He got sued from other people from this. I only have scars where they extracted my zits.
