    Maybe it’s the picture but I don’t see any indentations just red marks. From my understanding tca cross is for ice pick scarring, which this doesn’t look like.

    I dont understand when you say microcoring is another gimmick but then follow up by saying it will take many treatments to possibly achieve smooth skin? How is it a Gimmick? If it takes several treatments to eliminate scarring then honestly who gives a shit, I know i wouldn't. Its minimal downtime anyway. Its the most promising treatment on the horizon I believe because the concept is clever yet simple. The big questions are depth of scar for coring to completely remove the unwanted tissue

    That's insane man! I have over 100 scars both big and small the most any doctor charge me is $600 per session of sub. Fillers cost about 600-800 a vial for sculptra (mulitple syringes per vial) or 500-800 per syringe for HA fillers with $5000 you can get multiple sessions of subcision with HA fillers and sculptra easily.

    If it's not broken...don't fix it.

    The acne.org Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5 % has saved my skin!! I was using acne.org from November 2017 until January 2019. Why did I stop you may ask?...My skin was clear and flourishing but Instagram and popular skincare caught my eye. I switched to another skincare routine and it seemed to be going well (BIG MISTAKE!!!) until my acne started to creep back in on my jaw line, then on my cheeks. I used this different routine for 3 months and now I regret every moment of it..so...I went back to acne.org

    Subcision without filler is useless.

    Acne scarring and acne have really screwed me up mentally. It's a condition I think that really really screws with you because your face is what people see when they first see you and if it's scarred, your whole perception of yourself is off. The fact that my skin will never be perfect is something I have to live with every single day. I see people with clear skin and I think of stuff I would do or trade to have that, knowing life doesn't work like that, that my scarring to some degree is perman

    Hi! I know how you feel! I had all the same thoughts. So I’m on day 11 now and my skin is healing great. I will wait until a month before I post pics. I will also give a full detailed account at that point. But feel free to message me with specific questions bc I’ll give you my phone number. I was dying for someone to talk to who had done it—so I know how you feel. As far as pain, you are sedated for both days. I will tell you though that it is not pleasant. During the procedure I had no p

    Hi all, I just had the phenol peel performed by dr rullan on Tuesday. I am determined to give a full account, as I found such limited info and follow-up info from treatment from other users and people on the internet. I will post before and after pics. It’s been 3 days and I had the skin scraping yesterday. Once I’m feeling more up to it I will give a detailed account and answer any questions you all may have. At this point I’m still in a significant amount of pain. Dr rullan wonderful and his a

    this is correct. I have the same type of redness as described in the OP but mine's not from Accutane, it's just from using lots of harsh topicals which irritate and strip away the Lipid Barrier. Although what you say about there not being a treatment for this is incorrect. It's actually very basic biology. If the Lipid Barrier is depleted, then your skin is incredibly sensitive to water and topicals. Therefore any regimen designed around washing the face and applying topicals simply cannot work,

    I have been using Retin-A for about two full months after my Accutane course ended in April, and it has been working great. For me, it has reduced my red marks, improved my scars (especially these awkward scars between my eyebrows), and my face is not oily. At first when I read the instructions and it said the size of a pea, I was thinking yeah right. But that's really all you need for full coverage. I find that it is less irritating and my skin doesn't feel like it's on fire. In all, Retin-A
