  1. Hi thanks for the reply - owndoc doesn't actually review the dermapen, just a similar device...this pen is sold only to Dr.s and is an in office procedure. When I go to the dermapen website www.dermapen.com, the technology seems sound and the before and afters are impressive but aren't they always??????? Hoping someone out there has had this procedure done by a Dr.....thanks!!!
  2. Hi Guys! I just read about the Dermapen which is supposed to be an advancement in mirconeedling - finer needles etc. - just wondering if anyone out there has had this procedure done. Thanks!
  3. I don't recommend a steroid injection - everyone is different - but when I have had a cyst or nodule injected in has gotten rid of the cyst/nodule but also created a huge dent in my face - that has not improved - going on 2 years. This is a common reaction to steroid injections. Be careful!
  4. natural girl, can you give me the name of your dr? there are a couple of Dr. Rappaports in NJ...many thanks!
  5. Before you try filler, subcision or excision I would suggest saline injections. It worked for me. I had them done by a board certified Dermatologist. No new scars from excision and no injections of fillers.
  6. Hi All - I decided the other day that I was way over-handling my skin and creating problems so I had to, literally, throw away my 2 magnifying mirrors. They weren't really expensive or anything. It's been a huge help and I feel way more in control. I admit, I miss them but it has also made me realize it was something I had to do. CVD - maybe try this - if you are constantly in the magnifying mirror in your bathroom and you can't get rid of it - tape a piece of cardboard or something over i

    Hi - La Viv has been FDA approved for the US market and is available through select dermatologists. I am going to a Dr. for consultation in NYC.
  8. Hi Juicy Girl, I had saline injections for a dent on my face from a huge pustule and I have had almost 100% improvement on the indentation. It's still there but almost completely filled in - I can still see it in certain light but barely. I had only 2 injections and I had the first injection only days after I noticed my skin was denting. So - the dent was not from cortisone, just from how my skin healed. But - I am posting this because I would encourage you to try it. I had Restylane as we
  9. Interesting...that there isn't anyone out there that is happy with the results of any laser treatment for acne scars. The industry must be collecting a lot of money from unsatisfied and unhappy patients.
  10. Thanks for replying - I'm sorry you had a terrible experience...I am not going to try it. I too have had treatments that actually made my skin look worse and am still recovering from it.
  11. Hi All, I'm considering lasers for indented shallow scars on my cheek and I am wondering if anyone out there has had success with this treatment in terms of real improvement in their scars?????? Seems like initially there is some improvement which is negated over time (once the healing is complete) with negative side effects - If you would share your experience - it would be appreciated - before I go laser all the skin off my face....thanks!!

    Thanks for your updates - at this point are you happy with your results overall? Any negative side effects?
  14. Restylane Shallow saucer scars Side effects - the filler can migrate - it basically settles where it wants to in your face - in my case I wound up with a major, and I mean major facial asymmetry. In addition to that - I have discolored raised bumps where the needle entered my skin, the Restylane is not smooth and created a very weird texture to my skin - all the pores in that area are now enlarged. In addition to all these new problems it made my scar larger, caused it to stretch out and s
  15. Thanks so much for your update - fingers crossed and hoping you get a great result!!!!
