    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

    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 a waste of time and money. These baseline pictures were taken many months after I had those treatments.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    Guys, I really think you should try what has worked for me, @Canucklehead12 and @UnusualClub which is Benzoyl Peroxide. I know some of you have tried it in the past and it didn't work. However, the first step is to eliminate the source of this bacteria which are your nostrils. Gram negative and positive bacteria including staph grows in your nostrils. Simply clean them with hibiclens for 30 secs using a Q tip for 3 to 5 days. Also apply hibiclens to your face for 2min. Hibiclens is a micro

    Hey Guys, Sorry for not being around too much, i wanted to post here a quick update. I will be presenting my work in London this coming September to a team of Researchers. I will try to convince them to focus their attention to the Liver. As a summary of what i've been finding over the past 3 months. -I confirm the importance of Gut. Even though i was not looking too much at this, Gut *is* very important. -Given the latest findings of Lipkin et. al, we see Phospholipid metabolism alte

    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
