I've had such good luck with chemical exfoliation, but the results are sort of stagnant at this point. It seems I'm at a point of maintaining where I am now. I have seen a couple active eruptions, lately with the weather change. But otherwise, just working on the scars.
So, enter microneedling.
I've started using Paula's Choice 8% AHA and Paula's Choice 1% Retinol to combat pitted scarring, damaged pores, and hyperpigmentation due to years of cystic acne. My actual breakouts are very infrequent, but it's time to get rid of the uneven texture.
I made sure they are taken in a bright light and most noticeable angle .
I have few questions .
i took 4200mg of isotretinoine i quitted taking it for 2 months ( Biggest mistake in my life ) and now m retaking it for another 9000mg throghout 7 months, im 77 kg , i also get one small cysts everyday ( under my lip u can notice them )
will they leave a scar ? and how to prevent it ?
when will i start clearing up ? will isotretinoine prevent not scarring from these cytsts ? ( i've got already scars that ruined my face ) i just dont want further scarring i only care if they would affect getting a job cause i study management and the appearence is quite important in this field X(
how do u consider these scars Mild ( not likely ) moderate or severe ?
and which scar treatment would be efficient ? .. m a bit lucky i dont have a white skin otherwise my scars would be noticeable 100 feets away
Hello. About four years ago I squeezed two blackheads on my nose. I was left with these large red circles on my nose. One near the tip and one on the side. The red circles remained visible for about a year maybe and then faded. I couldn’t see them after that. Recently, last summer, I noticed two discolored spots on my nose reappear one day. They’re definitely the same marks I had in high school. They don’t look like they’re going away anytime soon and have only gotten darker since they’ve appeared. I’m just wondering if a doctor could fix this. The skin where the marks used to be is just slightly redder. Does anybody have any experience with this or something like this and do you know what will help? Thanks
Journey to stop picking and clear skin after 20 years. Just need support. I don’t have awful acne but I have a horrible picking problem. I just have never had “clear skin” and I have a almost paleo diet, do everything natural, tried accurate etc. it always comes back. I just have never posted a picture before or had support to stop picking and really care for my skin and stop trying for it to be perfect
I have pimples and marks on both of my cheeks please get me a solution. I use sebamed foaming cleanser and sebamed moisturizer. Im 21 years old female , i have tried every home remedy but nothing helped im really dishearten please help me
I have had cystic acne for about 3 years now and recently switched to the Paleo diet in the beginning of this year. It has helped a lot with my acne but now I am left with tons of rolling scars on my cheeks.
I have uploaded all the pictures I have so far. A couple of the pictures are from the day of my first subcision.
I’ve been super consistent with my current skincare routine for over 3 months now and I’m SO happy with the results. It’s helping me get rid of my acne scars and hyperpigmentation much quicker and without using harsh products.
I've been adding vitamin c serum, black soap and more natural products to help lighten my scars.
