Thanks!

    Forums The Acne.org Regimen 20 replies

    Very often I hear from people who said the reason they decided to try The Regimen is because they went through the success stories. Another thing people ask me a lot is how they can help spread the word. Probably the best thing you can do to spread the word about The Regimen is to post your own success once you are cleared up. A video is best, but a before and after, or even just an after picture, is also awesome. A simple written success story is great too. Please take a moment to post your success once you're clear! If you're just starting on The Regimen, feel free to start a video blog so people can follow along as you clear up. Alternately, take a before picture of your skin now and an after picture once you're clear.
  8. There is no solicitation allowed on Acne.org, so we carefully look at any requests for Acne.org members to volunteer for things. In this case, I have spoken to the researcher and it appears to be a legitimate study with no financial component that is furthering our understanding of acne. So, I told Lee, the person needing volunteers, I would post this for him. So, without further ado, here it is. _____ Hello everyone! I am a postgraduate student studying my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology at Swansea University in the United Kingdom. I’m looking to recruit men and women to take part in a research project exploring the experience of individuals living with acne. I have lived with acne since my early teenage years and this has has ignited my academic interest in how others like me experience the condition. Despite the prevalence of acne in adolescents and adults all over the world, in psychological research little attention has been given to the day-to-day experience of acne as reported by the sufferers themselves. Particularly, I am interested in the impact that acne has on your life, your reflections on consultations you have had with doctors/dermatologists, and whether the experience of acne differs between individuals depending on their age, gender, or social experience. For those who might be interested in taking part, the research will involve you and I having a brief discussion (30-60 minutes) about this topic. This will take place through typed text form over an instant messenger service (i.e. Facebook Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, WhatsApp) OR verbally over the telephone. This is subject to your preference and convenience. The confidentiality of all participants shall be ensured in the final report, and you will be free to discontinue participation at any time. All those who express an interest in taking part will be emailed a brief sheet outlining this research in more detail. In order to take part you will have to meet the following criteria: - You must be over 18 - You must have lived with acne for at least 6 months at any point in your life (the clinical or self-reported severity of your acne does not matter) - You must have been seen by a doctor/dermatologist for your acne at least once at any point in your life If you are interested in taking part, have any questions about this project, concerns about the subject matter or would like any other information please contact me:- Mr. Lee Sawyer Tel. +447951849641 Email: leesawyer1994@gmail.com You may also contact my academic supervisor:- Dr. Rachael Hunter Tel. (01792) 295714 Email: R.Hunter@swansea.ac.uk I will also attach an information sheet to this email Dan, this will be sent to any participants who express an interest in taking part; it contains some more detailed information about the aims and content of the study. If you require any more information from me about the study I'm happy to provide it. Additionally, if you yourself are interested in taking part then that's great too! Kind regards, Lee

  10. Updated the chemical peels page. Superficial peels work to some degree for acne, but can be expensive and time consuming. My personal opinion is they aren't the best way to treat acne. However, for scars, medium and deep peels appear to perhaps give good results. Just be careful and find an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon who specializes in scar treatment before you attempt one.

    Forums Scar treatments 54 replies

    Hi guys. I wanted to chime in here. We do not have definite proof of anything. To be honest, I may have handled this the wrong way and I feel bad. I am extremely protective of this site and had a knee jerk reaction to a moderator potentially violating my trust. However, I believe strongly in being innocent until proven guilty and I should have reached out to beautifulambition and done all the investigation I could have done before taking action. I am looking more deeply into this now but I don't want anyone jumping to conclusions like I did. I will look into this more and let you guys know if I find anything concrete. In the meantime I'd like to apologize to beautifulambition. I'll keep everyone posted.

    I agree with CP. Let's pin the fewest topics possible. Having too many pinned topics at the top is distracting. I like keeping the boards as clean as possible.
  23. Thanks you guys. I'll have my guys look into this.
  24. Hey you guys. So you're saying you want to be able to block people from PMing you and also from seeing their content? Just wanted to clarify that this is the 2 things you're recommending. Question: - Wouldn't that end up making threads show up as swiss cheese for you? Would you still be able to follow along with holes in threads like that? If we did this, I suppose I could set it up for you so it would still be visible that they posted something but it would just have no content and would say "blocked" or something. Let me know your thoughts.
