  1. Your skin looks a lot like mine, same looking pores on both my upper cheeks. I think I have more and they're a lot more concentrated though trust me I know how you feel. Hope to hear an update from you after your next treatment.
  2. Here's my situation. I have heard great things about a specific laser treatment, but the doctor who performed said great things with the laser is a board certified dermatologist and a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. The catch is, he is in California, while I am in Illinois. The only doctors that offer the laser treatment I'm looking for within 100 miles of my area are board certified plastic surgeons. I should mention that on
  3. First, I want to say how frustrating that must be! I can understand. It's your face-not there's but yet we hope for their intelligence to guide is in the right direction. Regarding the Tazorac(if you are still using?) Those are some of the side effects of the gel/cream that you are describing. Prior to you using this could really help to understand what you are struggling with. Did you have these problems before the Tazorac? or Are they because of the usage? I believe this gel/cream is also use
  4. I want to start by saying I have a terrible dermatologist. It's gotten to the point where I refuse to make appointments with her anymore because I usually end up with more problems than I started with. I went to see her about the possibility of Rosacea and Sebhorrieic Dermatitis a few months ago, and she just gave me a few samples of a different moisturizer and sent me out the door. After I used Tazorac for three months, I have had random redness which flares up occasionally throughout the we
  5. *Originally posted this on your previous thread-didn't realize you made a new one I apologize. Gonna post it here so you don't miss it lol!* Just reading about this is getting me excited. Congrats man, glad to hear you're making progress. I too am trying to get rid of enlarged/scarred pores and small ice pick scars on my cheeks. They're stubborn as hell, I feel your pain. Really hope to get an update from you after your next treatment, I'm seriously considering this an option at the moment b
  6. Just reading about this is getting me excited. Congrats man, glad to hear you're making progress. I too am trying to get rid of enlarged/scarred pores and small ice pick scars on my cheeks. They're stubborn as hell, I feel your pain. Really hope to get an update from you after your next treatment, I'm seriously considering this an option at the moment but I'm not gonna get my hopes up yet and see how your experience with it turns out. I've honestly never heard of this laser before I stumbled upo
  7. After I finish up deleting some stuff, I am breaking away from this website and moving on with my life. Thank you all sincerely for the support and kindness you have given me.

  8. I will look into that book. I will also try calling my doctor.. She's been my family doctor for years and once she finds out I've been in my house this long without help she's going to give me a long lecture.. Kind of why I avoided it. But like you said, I've tried looking up therapists online, but I get so lost.. I don't know if I have BDD or not, or OCD, all I know is depression, but I don't want to say that because really that only scratches the surface. And then they label themselves as psyc
  9. I definitely need mental help, but I don't know where to find it.. Over the past year and a half or so I've let my face take over my life. I'm scared of what might happen if I don't get help in the near future. I've tried looking up doctors online.. I even called one place.. They always want to know what's wrong with me: depression, anxiety, ocd, etc.. But I don't know what's wrong with me. Depression is obvious, but I just feel broken. Looking at the scarred pores on my face.. Pisses me off bey
  10. I don't know if it's "normal" but it's common as hell. It seems like such little things bother a certain type of people.. And that type of people is us on this board. I've been trying to get space from this board. It's been doing some good, it really has. I've made some goals for myself. Maybe you should give it a try. It sounds lame but it's worth a shot. I've been seeing my girlfriend a lot more lately and reconnecting with old friends I haven't seen in like a year because of all this.. They l
