  1. Verteporfin is being tested for other types of stuff other than scarring due to it being a YAP inhibitor. Interesting stuff for sure. Also, I saw an article where it stated that Verteporfin market is predicted to have an overwhelming hike in revenues between 2021 and 2027. Only time will tell how effective it will be. It seems like the pig trials are taking forever lmao

  4. I don't see the amount of skin being cored out being a problem, remember that skin is elastic as it stretches and maintains it's shape according to our musculature. This ability decreases with old age but then again microcoring removes redundant skin of that nature so it's a solid win in my book and for my type of scarring.

  5. Thank you and wow you must be busy! Are you planning any treatments yourself? Always hard to when work gets in the way! It’s been fine no one has noticed or commented on my skin so that’s good. Complexion at 3 months post-op is no issue now. Almost returned to my normal colour. A tinted moisturiser is your best friend or a foundation. No, I have not followed up with him however you can get an oxygen facial for the redness that they recommend. I did not opt for this as it was an additiona

  6. Apparently they are/were finishing up the trials on pigs, who knows how long until they release the results though. Take a look: (scroll down to where it says verteporfin wound healing update 8/29/21) [Edited link out]

  7. Yeah. I'm still on low dose accutane to stop getting active acne even in my mid twenties. i tried coming off and cysts come back. accutane also dries out/thins your skin and makes you look older and scarring worse. plus it even reduced my hair quality a bit. literally every direction i could go in sucks. it's so not fun to walk outside and have worse skin than people in their 60s and 70s. I look about 5-10 years older than my age also due to accutane skin drying + hair thinning + collagen destru

  8. You missed two more mirrors. First is the INNER mirror, which reflects and magnifies the negative views we have of ourselves. Unless you get a firm grip of it, its corrosive nature will eventually eat us up. The second is the BIAS mirror, which only sees what it wants to see, regardless of what the true reality might be. Once it becomes fixated on one thing, that's all that it matters. This mirror is just as toxic as the first one. Listen, I ain't here to philosophize or psychologize your

  12. How have we not heard at least one case of tgis being used on someone off label yet? On a hair loss forum someone mentioned a couple of surgeons in NY were using it on FUE and getting complete regenration of hair follicles. Could be BS who knows

  14. Delay your HT’s, or get scared for life (Breakthrough!). Transplants A few months back Stanford researchers broke the internet by releasing a study of the usage of Verteporfin in wounds in mice. As many of you probably already know it produced amazing results. Verteporfin treated mice had virtually no scarring, and hair regrew with blood vessels and glands. Obviously amazing news. However, mice skin is very different from human skin. So the next step for the Stanford researchers was pi

  17. Just wanted to leave this here..My whole life i’ve dealt with really bad body dysmorphic symptoms. I still was often found very attractive by many people, but there was always at least one flaw that controlled every second of my life. In high school this became acne scars. It’s been a few years now basically freaking out every day about my perceived acne scars. Here’s the crazy part: I can go on snapchat and take a selfie that makes my scars look terrible to me and I can look in a normal mirror

  20. Yeah seemed to work like 70-80% on my icepicks but I had tons of them maybe it was just pure luck or the extent of the damage made Dermabrasion work well, or whatever else. Lasers weren't around back then. Not a lot of doctors do it anymore and if they do they keep turning me down I asked twice for another one and both said I wasn't a candidate so maybe I'm in that nothing will help zone where they don't want to gamble. I'm happy I went from 'not being able to leave my house' to 'just being

  21. A harmless teenage skin disorder can truly destroy the essence of life of some people. Unfortunate and unfair. No proper treatment, except isotretinoin which can essentially destroy the quality of life in some people as well, with long term side effects, and some unfortunate people get permanent long term side effect. Then the leftover lifelong scars, there to bother until death. Odds against almost all of us.

  22. It's not easy, especially during flare ups, because I'm personally always worried and stressed. When I wake up sometimes I wonder if I'll have a terrible/flared day or if things will be generally pleasant. It's definitely not a good way to live. Society requires commitments all the time. In the afternoons usually it's worse for some reason. Speaking from a position of experience, I told every form of doctor for 15 years and they either have no clue or don't care. Acne scaring and the linger

  23. It likely has to do with the damage to the layers, pores, and whatever other physiological things going on. Environments, stress, sweat, and many other things can trigger it from mild to severe. I remember my face looking dishoveled or even disfigured weirdly throughout the day or through hot weather or weird long durations. I've experienced it for over a decade. It's not fun especially if you have commitments. I think the saddest part is most doctors literally either don't care, treat it like

  25. Unfortunately, that's still too early. You should ideally wait at the minimum of 2 weeks. Better yet, wait 6 weeks before posting more pics.

So far I’ve had Nokor Subcision in SF(Oct 2020) Nokor Subcision with Juvederm in SF ( Nov 2020) 3X Genius RF in NYC ( May through July 2021) The first photo is before any treatment.

  27. No girl will give a chance ugly men in first place you women dont understand that almost %80 of the men are invisible to you if you call that a lie you are living in a outer space or in a fairy. After 30 womans beauty and value drops thats why they settle and married uglier men, by that time they will search and interclose with top %20 men. Also your opinion doesnt count Alhamdulillah i do not take opinion from a FEMEN

  34. Hi mate , am sorry about how you feel , but if you read up on Albrey De Grey and David Sinclair they're working on extending human life span for hundreds of years ... i have scarring essentially all over my face , i have dermatitis of eyelids ( which isn't technically scarring , but it's still a horrible skin issue ) If you work on your health and well being now than scar free healing will come ...

  35. I agree but many peoples scars on this forum, including mine are really severe. People with minor scars don't worry about them so much to spend all day reading forums about it. Lots of people I see at uni have acne scars, NO ONE has severe scars.

  36. tbh this scar journey is making me want to kms. i started optimistic, but two infini sessions produced no improvement and actually made my skin worse, lost collagen, fat, look damaged. i look 10 years older than I am. i have such bad fat atrophy in some lighting it's ridiculous. i have not seen any evidence that my scars can be treated really. can't even go outside anymore because i look like a monster in natural light, nevermind the lighting at clubs and shit like that. idk what to do rly. the
