  1. hey, do you know what helps alot....I got on spironaloctone for acne, and it clears your right up....but it also does alot of other things....research it!
  2. I have a consult with him in june and it took a few months to even get in there to see him, I don't think he would be that booked up with people flying in to see him if the treatments didn't work but that's just my opinion.....maybe when I get there he will let me see more before and after pictures.....I'll let you know how it goes!
  3. Hi my skin is alot like yours and it used to bother me a whole lot....i still think about it constantly, but I know inside that it will get better soon, I have an appointment with dr.lam in june and he does tca cross and silicone injections, I am not sure what he will recommend but I do know tca cross is supposed to be very effective it just takes more then one treatment......
  4. I explained it to him and something seemed to click in his head. He said "oh yes!" blahdy blah. It seems kinda sketchy? But for some reason I trust him. $700 for the whole face? Or $700 for a few scars each? Do you know what percentage of TCA he will use? When are you planning on getting it done? I am going June 30th and yes no matter how many scars are on your face he will treat all of them for that price......if you feel like you trust him then go with that feeling.......usually that fee
  5. that is crazy, any good derm should know about tca cross.........the secretary told me 700....
  6. I just looked at the info online about it.....it looks like it may work pretty good, especially on wrinkles....I may try it too.........it says it can lessen the appearance of scars and I think it may work if it has that effect on wrinkles.......
  7. have you heard anything about dr. lam?
  8. Yes you are right the consult fee goes towards your procedure....I haven't heard anything about the other doctor you are referring to dr. B.....does he offer alot of procedures?
  9. Oh, okay! Good luck to you (: Let me know how it goes. I'm wondering if I should do TCA Cross... Keep in touch? I will thanks! I am excited and ready to have something done on my skin......I will let you know how it goes!
  10. he does silicone injections and tca cross, my consult fee is 100$ my appointment is at the end of june but i will look up that guy you are talking about....thanks for the info.....but i have heard good things about dr. lam, that's why i made the appointment, but you're right he doesn't seem to offer a lot of procedures.......
  11. There is nothing wrong with him....and his skin looks just fine.........
  12. thats crazy that it could swell up again....but the doctor i am planning on going to does say co2 laser resurfacing is fine after silicone injections.....well im glad you are pleased with your results its just a little scary that its a permanent procedure, but if the results are good that is what you want!
  13. I am planning on having this procedure done soon, I was also wondering under which lighting they do it in......who is the doctor doing your injections and how many did you have done? Hey, is it me u are asking? its just because i tryed the silicone injection the other person just gave some good info... but im not sure? yes i am asking you...im kind of nervous about getting it done and i was wondering who your doctor was......
  14. I am planning on having this procedure done soon, I was also wondering under which lighting they do it in......who is the doctor doing your injections and how many did you have done?
  15. if anyone knows anything about him please let me know before my appointment, i want to make sure i am going to a skilled doctor that will improve my appearance and not make it worse....thanks
  16. Hi, I was wondering if there is anyone on here who has gone to see Dr.Lam in Texas? I have read some great things about him and I have an appt. with him soon. But I looked up reviews for him on the internet and there were a few terrible ones....so if anyone has gone to see him and had great results, please let me know!!!! Thanks
  17. I do this every night, as i am sure others here do as well already. I am in agreement with you...the Bible also says call things that are not as so they were....so I say we all have beautiful skin in Jesus name and it will come to pass!
  18. the one everyone talks about is located in dallas texas, his name is sam lam and hes supposed to be a wonderful doctor....

  19. I had subcision done with no results, My doctor who did the procedure is in Nashville Tn, He has good reviews I just didn't like my results.....His name is Brian Biesman
  20. Hi there, Ive yet to find one, but over the time my red marks have definitely faded. Im getting pixel laser next month - ive got red marks on my cheeks and some pitted scarring on them and my forehead and my derm has advised this method. Ive had microdermabrasion and a peel but in the long run I feel the pixel will be more beneficial. What kind of scarring do you have? I have a few rolling scars, no red marks (I prefer those because they do go away in time) I alao had a peel and subcisio
  21. Please if anyone has had success in getting rid of there scars or at least getting a substantial amount of improvement please let me know....I have tried a few things with no improvement what so ever.....I have an appt. with Dr. Lam in June and I am excited about that.....but please let me know of any successful scar treatments....thankyou
  22. I've read that hyper-pigmentation is unlikely to happen with the SmartXide Dot or Mixto... not sure about Fraxel though. Thanks for reading & replying. hi, im new to this web site but i feel like everyone does and its so depressing, but i was wondering about the smartXide as well, i am considering that myself, ive tried subcision and a chemical peel and there was no improvement.........what im wondering does any laser or treatment really work for acne scars......i don't want to spend mo
