    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 have merged topics. Please post everything here as it get's confusing. To all who are reading this she had treatments by other Dermatologists in New Zealand, ... she is now seeing Dr. Lim who did Ultrapulse. As I responded above treatments can do absolutely nothing if done poorly. Ultrapulse is a very strong laser so Dr. Lim must think she has alot of fibrosis that cannot be helped by traditional methods until it's dealt with. I would never tell anyone to do multiple laser treatments fir

    We are all in this together Hope is a good thing. I recently self-inflicted an area of indented scarring on my cheek due to regrettable picking, how I regret it so so much. I wish I had acne rather than scars as acne is not permanent.

    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

    Differin is the only product to finally clear my cystic acne. I am 38 years old, and started my battle with the dreaded chin cysts in my early 20's. I will share my story in hopes it helps you. I am red head and fair skin that is not only sensitive and reactive but also partly oily and was prone to painful, ugly, embarrassing cysts. All of the other acne products caused redness and flaking. An old boyfriend once told me, Eew, it looks like your face is peeling off. That was horrif

    If you have tried everything out there, please give this a try!!

    I can't believe I have finally found something that works for me. Its been 10+ years of struggling with acne and trying everything, I just about gave up when I went to the dermatologist and the prescriptions didn't work and I was 25. This regimen is definitely a commitment and you need to stick with doing it 2x a day. Your face will hurt, burn, flake, peel at the first few days/maybe weeks BUT keep going it will absolutely get better!! I did start out with gray bed sheets and they all got bleach

    ^^ sure will Sorry if you are unhappy with your results. No one said it's a 110 % success rate. All we are trying to say is, there's progress over time. If it took years to develop scars, certainly won't take a day to go away. Regardless even if it's a 50 % heck even 40 % improvement I'll take it, like I already said. Keep your negativity out of my thread. thanks. maybe if you change your mindset and change how you see the world and wish for others, it will reflect back on you differently thr

    Subcision is great. My scars are holding the same improvements over 8 months that I saw after the first 3-4 weeks when the swelling went down. Hope you have the same long term success I've had.

    I would go right back to walkinlab and order the am cortisol test then. You are now in the unfortunate game that many have played for years. Including myself. Everyone thinks they know what it is, until its not. (I do still believe in the possibility of some "it" factors that have a trickle down effect.) There is some evidence though, you can also look at @Babis posts, one of his diagnosis involved the pituitary. The effect of different doses of isotretinoin on pituitary hormones. https
