    This saved me!

    I've always had amazing skin and then BOOM!  One spot after another started appearing on my face. These were under the skin, un-poppable painful little things and were leaving marks EVERYWHERE. I felt depressed, upset, hormonal and would not leave the house without makeup on. I went to a dermatologist who put me on Erythromycin and doxycycine and lymecycline for 7 months at a time and they weren't making any difference. After trying absolutely everything on the market from drug store to Mario Ba

    @sofaki90greece Thank you. The Dr ruined your face. 3.5mm .... why would someone one do such a thing, it destroys the fat at that depth. He would have been fine between .75mm to 2mm depending on the depth of the scars. The energy is also way to high and can destroy fat. He does not know how to use the device, hence your damage. I gave you a plan above, ... you need manual subcsion and filler, many of them ;-)

    @Jirachi Everyone has these, scarred pores or little imperfections, this is a easy case, but will take some time at home or the Dr's version see a aesthetic dermatologist. Have you tried at home doing glycolic spot peels and alternating monthly with dermastamping There look small enough to do tca cross on or TCA paint where acid is painted on the scar floor 3X (dry -paint) at a lower concentration % of tca. That should help also called tca spot peel. Otherwise a Dr would lase

    I agree with @ connectland in this case. These types of posts cause so much grief for acne scar suffers. Instagram is marketing not proof. Post's on this forum are "proof." The above examples are incredibly dishonest what is done in the Acne Scar / Aesthetics world. They are selling you deception. Any of you can take a amateur photography class and see these are basic tricks that are being played here. Notice the flash, where the light hits, look at the shadows they don't match on both pi

    Very tough to avoid with the vast amount of chemical names used for vitamin A types. Some are using just regular high oleic safflower oil with a good vitamin E mixed in. Vitamin A 3-Dehydroretinol, Antixerophthalmic Vitamin, Axerophtholum, Dehydroretinol, Oleovitamin A, Retinoids, Retinol, Retinol Acetate, Retinol Palmitate, Retinyl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin A Palmitate Retinyl palmitate, retinol, retinaldehyde, adapalene, tretinoin, isotretin

    @witsend30 This is normal great. Healing takes time, very slow process. Scabbing per say is variable, it's not a scab, this is scarring, ... it's a light skin cap (body's defense mechanism) protection over delicate new skin. As such if they come off keep the area moist and covered. Hence why you don't shower directly on them. I did prepare you they will get wider, and they will be red for some time. If you go to see a Dr like Dr Lim, he would give you a concealer to put over them once the

    Guys, I am in no way related to this site, but everybody on this thread should head over to: https://forum.propeciahelp.com/ and create an account. Trying to find useful information in this thread is way too difficult because of the format. Propeciahelp is about 5ar inhibitors, propecia/accutane and others. I know the name says "Propecia" but they have many of the same symptoms. The most important part is they have an actual FORUM vs a thread and finding differen

    @Eric98 1) Pulse Dye - Yes, AKA V-beam, Excel V You have PIE this is not scarring, it's wounding, your skin will take a looooooooong time to heal. As such there are strategies to work on this but be aware it's not scarring. Regarding slight pitting this is early scarring and things can improve this and the pie like Ematrix also called Sublative RF, Low density CO2, Picosure. What are some things you can try at home 1) Glycolic peels, 2) Silicone based creams help fade PIE, 3
