    I avoid these concern posts every few months but because I have been contacted a few times I will address the topic here. Firstly I need a definition of what LEGIT treatments are. This is a nebulous term with many meanings. Scars do have treatments currently, they take time and work, many do not want to put out the effort, $$$$, or have the down time. Are we comparing severe scarring, body scarring, light scarring, those who cannot heal properly, those who want to complain, those who want

    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.

    Hello, I suffered with the scars sometime during high school and it has been almost a decade since. I promised to give back to this forum if I ever got better because I had spent so much time researching on here when I was suffering. I never thought I would get over it, but I did. I kept putting off this promise even though I've been good for years now, but now I'm combatting another life obstacle, so maybe it is a sign to pay my dues. I have tried a plethora of things from VI peels, microdermab

    I agree with @EagleEva. I'm actually really disturbed by the what happened with Syd. From what I could tell, she was not lying about anything. It was simply a case of someone who was told to expect significant improvement and did not get anything close to what was promised. I understand sometimes that happens. Not every patient has the kind of knowledge or experience as veteran members here. Hell, all of the knowledge I've contributed here has been from my own trial and errors and real

    Alright guys, just got off the phone with Swanson and wanted to make an update while it's fresh. I didn't record the convo but did make notes while I was talking to him. Here goes: 1. Has the pilot study moved forward and if so, what is the update? If not, what's the cause of the delay and when will it be back on track? Yes, they have moved forward and the product is in centers right now and being used. They cannot share data with me at this time, but the way it's going to work is

    Meh. I used to feel the same way, but 80% improvement is possible. My pictures are not faked and show a couple scars that have been nearly removed completely with just 2 subcisions. Some people will never be satisfied unless they have the skin of a 5 year old.

    Seriously... what? I gotta believe some of you are just trolling the board at this point. If that's how you get your kicks, so be it. Again, it was released LAST YEAR. As in 2017. Yes, ten years... based on what exactly? And when did less than a month in count as well into a year? Look, SkinTE is out right now. It was out in 2017 for commercial use for scars and wounds of various types. That's not debatable, that's fact, unless you think PolarityTE is just making stuff up, consequences

    It's a drug. It's a cream or gel that you apply on a fresh wound like Mederma. They also have made pills of It that you can take orally. It will take a lot of time to be available because it is currently in phase 2 of clinical trials. Also, it prevents type 1 diabetes. They claim they found a molecule that stops the overexpression of collagen buildup when in the healing phase. That is what FS2 contains. There was an article that was published about phase 1 results in the Journal of Pharmac

    What basic stuff? three photos of pigs skin on their site, facilities, similar results in human, conversations with Swanson and thats all. Just words. There is no basic stuff. We do not even know what their paste is. We dont even see papers about swine tests. Result is what matter. Result is basic stuff. Swanson is the COO, the guy right below the CEO. He verified and stated things in both interviews before they were ever stated publicly such as them working on derivative products right no
