    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

    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

    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

    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

    From the album: 5th September 2013

    I've reached the 6th month mark of using a combination of Epiduo and Eryacne (topical antibiotic) and my skin is perfectly clear. When I stopped following the regimen and switched to Epiduo I did start to break out a little but nothing too major. The minor breakouts continued for a good 3-4 months but its now all settled down and my skin is acne free. In this photo (taken at work under florescent lighting) I don't have any makeup on apart from mascara, blush and chap-stick on my lips (I'm

    My hair is so much thicker than it was this time last year. I have "nice hair" again!!! It's not what it used to be, but it's 70% there and I'm absolutely delighted. It lacks some density but it's long, healthy, shiny and my parting is normal. I do believe this runs in cycles and is probably autoimmune, so we may never be "cured", but it seems that topical growth stimulants help. I'll keep coming back to update!

    Wow, first let me start off by saying what beautiful writing this was. Second, i know what you're going through, but it's slightly worse because my parents sort of blame me for my acne, so I have little support from them. I remember one time over the summer my face was BAD and I kept popping and making, leaving scars and craters. i barely went out and stayed in my room all day. The saddest day of my acne life has got to be when I realized it had spread not only to my back, chest, and neck, but
