  1. Complete regeneration of HUMAN hair follicles with verteporfin: https://folliclethought.com/donor-healing-study-with-verteporfin-by-dr-barghouthi/ A Turkish hair transplant surgeon injected different concentrations of verteporfin after punching out follicular units for extraction. At all concentrations, the injected sites regenerated **with hair** 84 days later while the control sites scarred over. The fact that this is happening at all is huge -- it means that complete regeneration of tiss

  2. Yes perfection is not there. But a good improvement is possible. The least u can expect is blunting of edges.

  4. What exact laser was used? albative fractional laser or fully albative laser?You have got the texture of an orange peel. A common side effect of fractional ablative laser. At the moment it is best not to do anything aggressive with your skin (no acids and exfoliation). Keep your skin moist. You can use creams to restore the skin barrier ( avene cicaflate, la roche posay cicaplast baume b5, elta md skin recovery, etc.) If by 6 months you do not see progress, you can include retin A or tretinoin i

  5. The scar by your eyebrows you mean? It's really not bad at all. Sure it's noticeable but definitely shallow and not that visible to a bad degree, very flat. I don't know if I would choose needling or TCA because I don't like those but maybe the laser worked a bit. I tend to think fractional will just result in some minor progress too but it's a very thin area in general, hardly any fat. I'm not sure there's an easy way to keep injuring that area any more aggressively than what you're c

  6. I think you’re beautiful the way you are. I wouldn’t try to remedy this too much with invasive procedures for fear of worsening or for the fact that it likely not produce significant results. A good skincare that causes cell turnover will overtime likely be more beneficial for you, without breaking the bank. You can do microneedling but I don’t think it will do anything. If you want significant results, yes, filler or deep dermbasion. But again, the risk is that it won’t make you happ

  7. I'm sorry to hear that you're going through the same thing To be honest the only thing that even relatively helped me was messaging Dan himself, here on the forum. He told me he'd make customer service aware (I had already emailed them back and forth numerous times) and that shipping was crazy right now. I had to buy another kit since this obviously was/is the regimen I'm currently using, and luckily it showed up within a couple of weeks. Customer service got back to me again a

  8. Wow, that's a lot and sounds expensive. The regimen is here for you if that doesn't work. I know for sure the regimen works.

  9. Very happy to read that! Crazy that you did subcision by yourself. But I know, that you have the necessary knowledge. You certainly had fewer side effects than I did at the doctors 35% improvement since your first subcision? Great, would be very happy. Cross my fingers for you that in the following und weeks and months improvement progresses. I put some camouflage today on my right cheek and it looked good, better than before. My mood is better after just one day (big sorry for the back

  12. He has many scars and it seems he fights them for very long and tried many many treatments. I dont feel comfortable to share what he said in his private group on telegram since im not him and i dont feel its "right" to share those personal things he said about his attempts to fix his skin. No one better than him could disclose those things here and he's already aware of this forum. All i can say is that, this guy is a hero and has done alot for science and for us scar sufferers. I hope he finds

  13. Hello I've got white scars from acne in my temple from a bad breakout 4 years ago. I had 7 microneedling sessions (the last 3 at 1.75mm in my temple) and they haven't faded that much. any other treatment I suggestions? I find it weird that instead of depressed scars I was left with these white scars

  18. @LolaMe @HanU @FinerFeedback So here's a photo of me just a few weeks ago. As you can see the LED mask was truly effective after just that one week. I randomly use it for a few tiny spots that might pop up here and there but I haven't had ANY of those big nasty ones since. I used RED, BLUE, GREEN. Each for 20 minutes, right in a row. The RED works to rejuvenate the skin entirely to get it working right again and rebuild it's health from just about any kind of skin issue

  19. Yes I had dots on my face. Hydroquinone is forbidden in the EU as I see. How long did you have that redness? Yes I heard popping noises quite much. And Dr. Emil said that it is okay to do subcision every 3 months

  20. You mean that’s a lot? Dr. Emil suggests to do the next treatment after 3+ months.

  21. Have you tried changing your diet? I recently went completely dairy free and I've had amazing results. I always thought it was a ridiculous notion that something like that would change my acne but it has. I never had a lot of dairy anyway but I was eating enough to affect my skin. I only figured it out after adding a lot of high protein (whey) and my skin was the worst it had ever been. I had to go totally dairy free for a month to see results, no dairy in anything, but its working!!! It's worth

  22. My horrible subcision experience with Dr. Sadove in Gainesville FL

    I had been searching for a viable remedy for rolling acne scars and through recommendation on this website i landed on dr sadove in Gainesville fl. I contacted him and sent him photos for a virtual consultation. He concluded that subcision with fat grafting would be the best option at a price of 4000. He said I was a perfect candidate and believed that I would see a huge improvement. Feeling excited by his confidence I made the appointment. Day of procedure everything was fine. I came out lookin

  23. Hello everyone, I have been going through the same issues as many of you here (Orange peel texture) and have yet to find a solution to this problem. I have done countless hours researching online and trying new products recommended on internet forums (acne forums, Reddit, and Rosacea forums) to no avail. From what I have gathered from my own personal experience I truly believe the skin condition we are suffering from is a result of skin damage and it not directly linked to genetics. Havi

  24. This can also be from a poorly functioning thyroid or antidepressant medication messing up hormone levels. Also Excess Sebum-Oil produced by a damaged ""moisture barrier,"" look it up on Google. Over exfoliating, doing to many procedures that strip and exfoliate, sensitivity to cosmetic products, poor diet with sugar, dairy, carbs, and excess process foods - instead of fruits and veggies. Orange peel is caused by excess inflation in the body. Look at antioxidants and supplements to strengthen

  25. I saw him, the Allergist, about a year ago, before all of this madness started, I have been seeing his PA since. Swear to god, the PA's that I have seen since this nightmare started have done nothing but worsen my situation. I know, when he said the words "Orange Peel Texture" I think I almost passed out, couldn't believe it. Because usually it is Doctors and Derms and PA's looking at my face all squinty-eyed, like they can hardly see what I am talking about. AND HE KNEW WHAT IT WAS FROM ACROS

  26. Yes we did. Are you the one who thought it may have been an allergic reaction?? I remember your name coming up a lot trying to help me. I wish it had been that easy. Ahh yes, actually birth control is what caused my cystic acne that I had to go on accutane for...so I definitely believe that one. So sorry about that ://// Yea..my skin was somewhat temperamental on the last months of accutane and post but it went away. Nothing worth mentioning. And I had no major issues. M
