  1. why dont you go to the sk in website, book a free consultation with a nurse, and ask her those questions there instead of on acne.org people dont really seem to answer much here, just read/lurk.
  2. i think the op meant effective, not stupid home remedies. acid peels are the cheapest *effective method* to get good results in short term the most expensive method but most effective is laser, almost instant results
  3. accutane + 2 weeks of sun + salt water + other variables = fading of marks still not the safest thing to do as your skin was torn down by accutane, and you let it out in the sun exposed. i think you might have done more harm than good, but you look great so who knows
  4. wait a few days and they will start fading like magic, good job you got round to getting laser
  5. this is the kind of shit that really ticks me off. idiots coming on here with pathetic home remedies giving other gullible people a bit of hope. because of the circumstances, most people are desperate and will try almost anything. even a 2 week water fast to clear their scars. im not saying a water fast is a bad thing, i've done it before a while ago, but not after practising a juice fast before moving onto just water. and no, that did not magically clear my marks.
  6. yes but atkins idea is to substitute fat for carbs, this is not right as even if its healthy, too much fat is very bad for you, period. the diet above has moderate amounts of fat, high protein, and low carb which is great. end of the day it will improve your skin
  7. Tried and tested for over 3 months - this does work. Firstly, its not easy. I dont live in America so im quite lucky in that we dont have the same "junk food market" with fast food restaurants at every corner, i think for some it will be quite impossible to do it. The Plan: Limited amount of Carbohydrates You might be thinking Atkins? No, this is not Atkins. Atkins is quite dangerous actually and demands constant restrictions of carbohydrates, this does not. MONDAY-FRIDAY 20grams of carbohyd
  8. you wont see any sort of improvement unless you use it 2-3 times a day liberally for months. all these topicals are not as effective as everyone thinks. you need time, and loads of it to see results with these. here is a rough guide for results over time - creams and topicals (stuff you rub onto skin) - will take months before any small difference - dermabrasion - physical things which renew skin cells quicker - again takes a month or more - chemical peels - faster results, 1 or 2 peels every
  9. vbeam is the one i was given, needed more than 1 treatment to completely get rid of em. make sure you wait at least 6 months until skin has healed from accutane onslaught during this waiting time do this and it will help and make you feel better - use a gentle cleanser like cetaphil BUT once your skin starts getting oilier (it will after you stop accutane), start bringing in an exfoliator to use once a day too. - dont shave, grow some stubble or a beard and trim it with beard trimmers. this w
  10. i dont want to be a horrible person who makes people feel bad, i was in the same position and i did appreciate people saying your skin does look a bit better, but deep down i knew it was still bad. instead of lying to make him feel better i told him the truth. more importantly, what can be done to get his skin clear
  11. sorry to burst the bubble but they have not improved. these things are horrible, they can look better or worse depending on light conditions, irritation (look after a shave, it will be super red). if you look first thing in the morning they will look better. i was stuck with these for nearly 2 years, got fed up and had a laser treatment. dont delay unless your OK with trying home treatments for years to come, laser is the only way to get rid of them efficiently p.s im not some laser salesma
  12. hydroquinoine is banned in europe and several parts of the world as its been linked to cancer. i wouldnt touch it with a barge pole.
  13. like i said, its my opinion. if i was some sort of salesman you'd think i'd mention my laser brand or doctor etc.... idiots.
  14. like i said its just my opinion. if you wanna be stuck with marks for years while wasting your money on stupid home remedies then go ahead.
