  1. 1) If you've already tried everything and you still don't like the result2) If you don't have the $$$ for treatment, try the following approach3) If you have at least 3 months to killThen try the following approach. I've tried it for the last two weeks and I'm already seeing some improvement. Scars appear softer, skin plumper, etc.4) This would also work as a great aftercare if you already had a treatment, FWIW.What you need:1) DMSO: Used as a carrier for skin penetration (see below for important info)*2) Castor Oil: Known to reduce scar3) Lugol's Iodine (2%): Known to regenerate new skin4) Allantoin: known to reduce keratin (eg. fibrous protein)*** DMSO comes in either gel or liquid form. I suggest you get pure 99.9% concentration. ** Allantoin comes in powder form. Combine allantoin and DMSO together.How you apply, or in what order, is not important. What's important is that they need to go below the skin. This can only be done with DMSO.What I do is 1) prime the face with DMSO, 2) apply Lugol, 3) apply allantoin/DMSO, 4) apply Castor oil, 5) apply DMSO again.One word of caution about DMSO: DMSO is a transdermal agent, meaning it gets absorbed into the skin, so make sure you clean the site before application and be certain it doesn't come in contact with anything dirty, like soiled clothes. Also avoid plastic and latex gloves when handling DMSO. From what I know, all the toxins found in plastic/latex will get sucked in by DMSO and penetrate into the skin and/or bloodstream. Also, you don't need a lot. Spread a thin coat all around.
  2. Pure Vitamin E Oil - Good Or Bad Idea?!

    BTW not everyone breaks out with zits. I never do. So I guess it depends on the type of skin you have.
  3. Pure Vitamin E Oil - Good Or Bad Idea?!

    By "post acne marks", if you mean hyperpigmentation (eg. red marks), then you're better off going with Rose Hip Oil rather than Vitaminn E. Vitamin E is more for healing, like cell rejuvenation. What I personally like to do is to mix both oils with DMSO. This will help the oils to penetrate below the skin.
  4. Subcision Soon/ Documenting Procedure

    Damn, girl, I don't know what you're complaining about! You look just fine. Some people here, I imagine, would kill to trade place with you. Grrr... Seriously, you spend too much time on this board. Go out and enjoy your life.
  5. There is Hope

    No, it's not. Even if it's commercially available, it would only be available to burn victims. There's no public statement regarrding acne scar revision (other than what was said over the phone to one of the posters here that there might be a "derivative" product). But nobody knows when the treatment would be available to the public. It could be next year, or it could be in 20 years, or when most of us are either dead or are so old it wouldn't make any difference. What I'm saying is that, even though I remain optimistic, I prefer not to wait for a treatment that may never materialize.
  6. There is Hope

    Well, Jesus promised he would return 2000 years ago. Some people are still waiting.
  7. Any thoughts on this?
  8. Treatment advice (pics included)

    Wow, that was really a mouthful! I mean, Geezus, it only cost $100. If it works, fine. If not, that's okay too. But why the hell do these people automatically discount everything as useless (which they've never used themselves) is beyond me. At least try the damn thing and then let us know. BTW I've already had 2 infini.
  9. Actually, you're not an idiot. This actually works. I've done it in the past and saw the moles either shrunk in size or disappear altogether. Just keep going. If it gets red or irritates the skin, apply moisturizer.
  10. Treatment advice (pics included)

    Sorry but I didn't take any before/after pics. Maybe I should have but taking pics to me is like spending countless hours analyzing yourself in front of the mirror.
  11. Treatment advice (pics included)

    I recently bought a hand-held RF device on eBay and just used it for the first time last night. I zapped all over my face for about 10 minutes. The jury's still out since it's far too early to tell whether it's good or not, but from what I can tell it wasn't that bad. I think he meant subcision in Auzzie. I think I got at least that much. But then again, number is just a number. What matters is are you happy with the result? One thing you need to be aware of is that the scars on the temple responds poorly to any type of treatment. This is largely because there's less skin/fat/collagen in that area. You could try subcision but I doubt you will get much lift. Moreover, there's a risk involving major veins and arteries that zig and zag in that region. So if you decide to go with subcision, ask the doc to use a "blunt cannula" in the temple zone.
  12. Treatment advice (pics included)

    I think you're a good candidate for Infini. Not sure about subcision though, based on those pictures. Your scars don't look too deep, nor are they tethered. They just need to be plumped up. If I were you, I would first get filler like Sculptra then follow up with infini 1 week later. Good luck.
  13. Spot Dermabrasion? Anyone?

    Ablative erbium laser will work just fine for spot treatments. Check out this video.
  14. Spot Dermabrasion? Anyone?

    As they say, a picture is worth a 1000 useless words. Post a pic. Anyway, if CO2 laser didn't help you, I doubt dermabrasion will either.
  15. Scarless Healing

    Research analysts rarely ever make SHORT recommendations. Unless their plan is to screw with the larger investing community, this would be very rash on their part. It's also worth mentioning that most of the rumors that circulate on Wall Street usually pan out as true in the end. As such, I wouldn't be surprised if these analysts have inside info that we are not aware of just yet.
  16. Try spot treating just around the pits with noticeable edges with erbium ablative laser. This should even out the surface irregularities. If you can afford more Infini, by all means get more. But try getting a filler prior to Infini this time. To be precise, fill up all the pits. Then wait for 1 week and get the Infini.

    PolarityTE: Investors Beware Dec. 7.17 | About: PolarityTE, Inc. (COOL) Summary PolarityTE’s sole key asset is a patent application that it acquired for a value of $104.7 million. Common equity holders are exposed to severe potential dilution, given a capital structure that is saddled with convertibles. PolarityTE has failed to release its full pre-clinical data, and its planned human trials appear delayed. The entity has been reverse merged several times into a variety of businesses. We believe PolarityTE is the latest in a series of failed story stocks. We believe the common equity is likely worthless.

  18. Scarring from Subcision?

  19. It's a Hypo. But you still have active zits, so don't squeeze 'em. Otherwise you just might come down with real scars.
  20. Scarring from Subcision?

    What type of needle did the doc use? Also what size? I think Nokor starts from 16-gauge, which is pretty thick. Most use either 18 or 20 for subcision. Hypodermic needles are much thinner so there's no concern for scarring. Be that as it may, even if you're left with, say, 2 scar pits from the incision, think of all the OTHER scars that will be filled.
  21. Scarless Healing

    The real crux of the matter is whether it will be affordable for those who really need the damn thing.
  22. Microneedling after subcision with filler

    But the real question is do you still want to get a subcision while you have the fillers? As I understand, Restalyne Lyft can last up to a year.
  23. Your problem ain't so much with the depth (of the pit) but the pronounced border. Since the scars have defined edges, I'm pretty certain you will benefit from a laser treatment. TCA peel will also be helpful as alluded by Quad, but that can take a very longgggg time. BTW did Infini help with pumping up the pits at all, or are they about the same as before?
  24. What's the normal price for subscision ?

    The longest NOKOR available is 1.5 inch. So unless your scars lie in close proximity, it won't be of much help. Also many doctors that I've talked to say they prefer targeting each scar one at a time. I don't understand the rationale for this. After all, it's all about cutting the scar bands that are tethered to the bottom. It's not like you couldn't cut 2 or more scars at the same time by just "fanning" the needle from side to side. Ask the doctor whether he would be willing to use a 18-gauge blunt-tip cannula. I think the longest length is 4 inches, long enough to swipe over the entire cheek in one sitting.

    Has this article been posted here? Regeneration of the entire human epidermis using transgenic stem cells Junctional epidermolysis bullosa (JEB) is a severe and often lethal genetic disease caused by mutations in genes encoding the basement membrane component laminin-332. Surviving patients with JEB develop chronic wounds to the skin and mucosa, which impair their quality of life and lead to skin cancer. Here we show that autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures regenerated an entire, fully functional epidermis on a seven-year-old child suffering from a devastating, life- threatening form of JEB. The proviral integration pattern was maintained in vivo and epidermal renewal did not cause any clonal selection. Clonal tracing showed that the human epidermis is sustained not by equipotent progenitors, but by a limited number of long-lived stem cells, detected as holoclones, that can extensively self-renew in vitro and in vivo and produce progenitors that replenish terminally differentiated keratinocytes. This study provides a blueprint that can be applied to other stem cell-mediated combined ex vivo cell and gene therapies. This major clinical development was based on decades of basic research. The clinical data gathered during 21 months of follow-up after the boy’s treatment have also led to major insights into human skin biology, as discussed in an accompanying News & Views (M. Aragona and C. Blanpain Nature; 2017). For example, normal regeneration of the epidermis is directed by only a few stem-cell clones that can self-renew. By their nature, highly personalized treatments using gene therapies and products derived from an individual’s stem cells are likely to be applicable to only a subset of patients. Although the report presents the treatment of one patient, it is a classic case of researchers standing on the shoulders of others. This project, for example, relied on long-term follow-up of a patient treated in 2006, as well as parallel studies that underpinned the development of tools for ex vivo gene therapy and for growing transplantable sheets of epidermis in vitro.
