    1 MONTH POST TREATMENT Hello all you narcissistic f***s!!!!!.... jk.. So i met with Dr. Igor today and we had a good talk about the results and so on. He took some pictures with the same angles and lighting so that we could compare. The results are kind of underwhelming but im glad that we at least are headed in the right direction. I guess this is what they call "baby steps". I would say its a 20% improvement on the deepest most visible scars and perhaps a 30% improvement on the smaller ones.

    Don't you love it when people who just had mild acne or none at all say to you it is not that bad of a problem. Damn i put up with this shit for 30 years going to the derm. I will never be the same mentally and socially since my acne started breaking out at age 14. I wish i could trade my problem with those people and in 30 years could tell them....it's not that bad! I have been a recluse most of my life outside of working.

    I think treating scars is more depend on doctors skill instead of technology progress. I mean right now there are doctors in the world who can treat scars well with todays technology but also there are some fool doctors that I m sure even five years from now even with technology progress, cant treat scars like skillfull doctors can today. In treating acne scars I believe doctors skill is the key not the technology

    Can you please provide link/source to your following statement. “””The simplistic view on the morphology of acne scar is that the more deeper scars such as the icepick, will get shallower with treatment. Hence, depending on how disfiguring the scars are, an icepick scar will morph into a boxcar and a boxcar into a rolling scar. So by the time you have reached the point where laser resurfacing is required, your icepick scar would look more like a shallow boxcar or rolling scar.””” I have re

    I am thinking a tca peel and filler with subcision would be better before your wedding. Traditional subcision with the nokor needle without filler cuts tethering better (needle has scalpel), but it takes time to heal. IF you could find a cancellation and do it before the wedding I think it would help. Also a makeup pore filler like benefit professional will help blur for wedding makeup / photos. Filler will not make the skin perfectly smooth, texture is always a issue, It will help a perc

    Hi there, I don't have any specific product recommendations because there is a lot of trial and error involved when it comes to acne prone skin but look for products with: niacinamide, glycolic acid, lactic acid, hyaluronic acid, green tea extract. All of these are excellent for aging skin, acne AND general skin health :) If you want to bring out the big guns ask your doctor for a prescription for retinoid product, but be careful with it and follow the doctors orders :)

    after becoming 80% clear with a paleo diet and 30mg of zinc a day i decided to keep trying to be 100% clear. i researched more into carbs and found out that all carbs are turned into sugar in the body which will raise insulin. seeing as how i have responded positively to cutting out sugar from my diet, i decided to cut the carbs. i cut them all out. i have lived off eggs, sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, meat, and veggies for the past week. it feels pretty crappy and everything is unpalatable. if s

    So, because guys not taking accutane can get ED, guys taking accutane cannot get ED from it? And I am not talking about just ED. I am talking about hypogonadism. And it is not just guys. Women in this forum have experienced hypogonadal symptoms on accutane that improve once they stop, but more often than not the improvement is only partial. When you notice all the symptoms of hypogonadism (including muscle wasting, testicular atrophy, complete loss of libido and morning or night wood) on accut

    As for the alcohol-accutane toxicity, perhaps this is relevant: Ethanol elevates physiological all-trans-retinoic acid levels in select loci through altering retinoid metabolism in multiple loci: a potential mechanism of ethanol toxicity. FASEB J. 2010 Mar;24(3):823-32. Epub 2009 Nov 4. Regarding HCGenerate, I personally did not experience any side effects, but I only used it 5-10 times. I am not sure what it did to my hormones since I did not check. The only "side-effect" I experienced was tha
