  2. very true, about the scar still being there. My scars were red and raised and after 4 beam treatments there pretty flat and over a year and half since I got them from a tca peel. The scars are still obvious because they have no hair and no poors and the pigment is a hint off (light). I will be trying dermabrasion to break up the hard scars now to hopfully to smooth the demarcation lines of the scar and normal skin..
  3. I posted some pics regarding my vbeam treatments I had 4 done over a year period. Its amazing with time gentle care and patience vbeam really helped.

I went on B5 and broke again (after changing brands) then immediately went on accutante. During accutane my skin started scarring up left and right, even on my hands becaues I wa

  9. mike, i have recently discovered my "affliction" with seb hyp and have been falling into a depression as a result.
