    Image 1: 4 weeks have passed. In-person, the scars aren't very visible. This is a morning picture, so some crease lines are present. Skin is smooth but sensitive to touch. The red scrapes on the left side were from sleeping on my side on a comforter - skin is very fragile. Image 2: Closer look atright side for remaining scarring --- At around 10 days when the mask came off, the pits & textural scarring were still largely visible and it looked like not much had imp

    This post includes all updates in this thread. Baseline Photographs I've had a lot of treatments done prior to starting this journal - 4 mixto CO2 laser treatments, 10+ micro needling sessions, juvederm (2 vials), 2 venice viva, cooltouch, and 2 spot subcisions. Today I know those treatments were more or less a waste of time and money. These baseline pictures were taken many months after I had those treatments.

    Hi Elaine, thanks so much for your reply! I have never been tested for demodex skin mites and I'm not sure where I should even go to get such testing. The dermatologist that I last went to in my town didn't seem to offer any sort of testing (he diagnosed and prescribed treatment just by looking... and by looking I really mean just like a glance...). Hearing how many different kinds of acne and recalling all of the times I've been "diagnosed" by dermatologists over the years without them eve

    My treatment was GI Clear 1 GI Clear 4 and Para 1 . I felt terrible while taking these. My foot and lower back pain made me almost quit in the beginning. He said it was die off reaction, I think I was just reacting to some of the ingredients like I do when I eat grains, beans, dairy, or eggs. He then had me take Probio Flora and Sacro Flora. I have tested positive for yeast/fungi overgrowth on a previous stool test. I have taken a LOT of probiotics over the last 10 years but I don't think

    Check out how screwed up my stool is. I just sent another sample off last week to see if my treatment did anything besides make me feel like crap. Oh and wanted to ask if anyone gets sensitive skin that hurts to touch but there is no rash or visual sign of anything? I have gotten it on my arm sometimes but right now its on both my arms and my waist/groin area.

    I totally agree with your comments above. I went to Rahimi years ago too around the same time as he was hotly discussed on here. As everyone knows, the forum has gone through cycles where certain physicians are praised, only for the patients to ultimately decide that the treatments failed. I had Mixto C02 laser with him, and it honestly f***ked my skin texture (although it has improved over the years). He also did fillers for me which looked like absolute shit, overfilled and overdone.

    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 guess this is why we usually stay up in our rooms all day to keep all this from happening.
