I am new to acne.org and joined after hearing Dr. Lim recommend the site. I have what I think are rolling scars on one cheek from several years of hormonal cystic acne. My acne has been much better and thankfully nothing compared to what it was. So now I am ready to tackle these scars!
I have been having closed comedones for years and can not resist picking at them so have lots of white scarring.
Really shows if I have a tan due to there being no pigmentation.
Would love to know how reduce my scars.
I have tried creams, home needling.
My skin has finally cleared up but now I’m left with terrible scarring. I don’t know what treatments will be best for my scars. I live in south Florida and can’t find any skilled doctors that I trust with my skin. Any recommendations from person experience would be greatly appreciated.
Finished round 2 accutane. Was a journey. Now scar treatment :/
I wanted to share my pics to get opinion on the best options for laser treatments. My doc recommended vbeam and picoway. Any feedback is helpful and appreciated.
I have been suffering these bumps and scars on my nose since 8th grade, and now that im in 11th grade, im getting more conscious about it. Cant have laser treatments or what nots because education first than others. Please help.
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.
Friends!! Please help! About a month ago I used tea tree oil to try to spot treat a pimple. It irritated my skin and I am now left with this pink scar post inflammatory erythema and need advice as to how to get it to heal! I have tried several methods but want your thoughts!
I never had any acne until I was an adult. It is quite depressing getting large cyst in your adult years (as well as being a teenager) as there seem to be a never ending story of it.
However, I´m almost acne free now, and I´m starting repairs on my modestly scared skin.
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.
