  1. Put a block over your eyes or over any part of your face that doesn't have the scars - it's not hard to do. That way if someone does take the pic off of here, they won't have your idenity with it. Why do people come here offering "help" for others with scars but not willing to give us a ray of hope by showing off the things that have helped?? So frustrating!
  2. Do you have before/after pics of your procedures? If you are trying to help people on this board, then providing your own real pictures will help much more than links to a website. I am always so put off by people claiming to have good results with something but won't post a pic, tell us the procedure, or round out the numbers of what they paid........doesn't seem trustworthy if you aren't willing to share info about it.
  3. Hello! I've written on the board before, but now I really need opinions/advice regarding which way to go with my scar treatments...... In Feb. I went to see a Dermatologist an hour away from where I live - he is actually the Chief of Dermatology in one of the main hospitals in that city - and he was nice enough & pretty informative with his suggestions, but I don't know why I guess I expected a little more from him. He only looked at one side of my face close up (I have different scarring o
  4. I am so upset right now that I want to cry. We went away this weekend to visit my family and I bought a new face wash while there because I forgot to bring mine (I use Cetaphil) and I thought I would try Aveenos's Clear Complexion cleansing pads since I've used the Positively Radiant pads before and I loved them! Since I had some acne starting on my jawline, I went for the Clear Complexion pads instead. I used it friday night and saturday morning and was fine. Then I used it last night and I ins

  6. First off, I am sorry that your mom would say something as horrible as that to you. My mom and my husband are forever telling me I'm still beautiful and my scars aren't as bad as I make them out to be and I actually get a little annoyed at them because I feel like they are lying to me (or at least blinded by their love for me), so I can't imagine what I'd do if my mom said something like that to me. But I know what it feels like to allow your acne scars to take over your life. I have had acne s
  7. In researching some natural ways to care for my skin, I found an article stating that organic rosehip seed oil is very good at reducing the appearance of acne scars. In my quest to use anything but Retin-A Micro (waaaaaay too drying on me and I hate it!) I got all excited and on my next shopping trip to the Vitamin Shoppe, I sought it out. When I found it though it says right on the bottle not for use on acne prone skin. Well, WTF!!?? I have scars AND acne.....mostly acne on the lower part of my
  8. Hmm, well my acne started at age 14 and I still have it at age 33 - not so temporary, huh?
  9. Today I am feeling pretty crappy. I ran out to my car earlier to get a bag I had left in there and caught a glimpse of myself in the car door window in this sunny bright weather.......I wanted to cry. I am a 33 yr old mother of 3 beautiful & healthy children, happily married to a man who thinks I am the sexiest and most beautiful woman he's ever met, have a great family & supportive friends.....why, oh why, am I letting this acne and scarring I have had for years and years get me SO down
  10. I can't really help regarding scars because I have them too - mainly on my cheeks and temples too. I am actually seeing a dermatologist right now who will start a combination therapy on me in the fall. I also have some active acne so I'm going to try to get rid of that by taking meds, which I can't start till I wean my son from breastfeeding this spring. But my doc is going to do a mixture of subcision, TCA (spot treatments I believe he said), spot needling, and non-ablative lasers. He said it w
  11. I was on here in Jan. and even posted a pic of my scars - someone gave me great advice (can't remember the posters name though) and even a link to a dermatologist an hour away in Philly. I made an appt. and saw him on Feb. 4th. Oddly enough both him and his assistant called my scars mild to moderate (I would have put them in the moderate to severe category though), but because I still have some active acne (mostly hormonal) he won't do any acne scar removal treatments until my acne is gone. They
  12. Usacc, I called that dermatologist in Philadelphia that you gave me the link for and I have an appt. on Feb. 4th!! Luckily they can bill the consultation to my insurance and it will only cost me $25 for the visit! Of course, any treatment after that (cosmetic wise which is what I'm seeking) will not be covered by insurance, but at least I can get the answers I need regarding what can be done for much cheaper than $125! Speaking of which, due to an unexpected bill that came up this morning, it ma
  13. To the previous poster - I just have to say that while I can totally understand the feelings of hating a scar, your skin looks amazing right now! I'd love to trade a couple shiny scars for skin that looks like that!! Do you have a before pic of yourself to compare?
  14. Well, it's not that I don't want to take the time - it's that with 3 kids (one of them only being 20 months old so he is always home with me) and a little girl who I babysit during the day (the mom has no other real options for daycare either) it's hard to FIND the time to drive down to Philly and seek treatment down there......I also work 6pm-10pm most nights after my husband gets from work - it's just life and I don't have the freedom to go on any day during any time so that's why I was hoping
  15. You know, the more & more I keep thinking about it and looking at her site, the more I think I might be wasting my time with Dr. Comite on tuesday - well, not so much my time but my $$ I'm more concerned about. Her site doesn't say anything about treating acne scars by themselves. I know I probably should find out about getting the acne I do have under control - again it's very mild to sometimes moderate depending upon the time of month (sorry for TMI, but it's true) and I'm sure I do need t
