  1. What is your diet like? I know that diet isn't always related to acne, but sometimes there is a connection. And even if it doesn't help with acne, you should keep a clean diet anyway. I know this girl who had some of the worst cystic acne you've ever seen. I was sure it would leave scars once she got off accutane. But her skin is perfect now that her acne has cleared up. She has always followed a strict healthy plant based diet. It didn't help with the acne, but at least she didn't suffer
  2. Subcision with a laser? I've never heard of that. How does that work exactly?
  3. I had dermal grafts. It worked well. On some scars it worked better than others. The best areas, probably a 90%+ improvement, on the worst maybe 60%. It's not a miracle treatment though, if you think it will restore your skin back to how it looked before you even had acne, you'll probably be disappointed. Even 60% is very significant though!! I'm just curious, can you tell based on the colour of skin or texture where the grafts are? Or do they blend in? They blend in eventually, but it ta

    This is going to sound like a stupid question, but this is before and after right?

  6. I think you're a good candidate for subcision and filler since you have rolling scars. Good luck!
  7. Do they offer this in the U.S.?
  8. Your scarring is so mild that I wouldn't even mess with anything. Remember, you could always risk making things worse with scar treatments. Just work on keeping your skin clear.
  9. Do a search on dermaflage or daphne (it's former name). The user Rupert swears by this stuff for his scars and discusses his method for applying it.
  10. I think the reason Co2 works for a minority and not most is that you don't know how deep your scar is. Ablative lasers only hit the top layer of skin, so of course if you have scars that reach into the dermis, like most scar sufferers or worse, the subcutaneous layer, you will not see any results. Anyway, most drs. don't use it anymore for scarring now that fractionated lasers are on the market.
  11. Thanks for the update. I had a consult with a doctor for Laviv myself. It does take a long time the way he described it. He told me it would take several months for them to culture my cells and everything to go through. I hope you see results.
  12. Dermarolling is not just used for treating acne scars, it's also for wrinkles, tone, texture. All those improvements will gradually disappear as you stop rolling. Plus, scar tissue is tough. I don't think it's entirely eliminated. Just my opinion.
  13. I would look into something low risk like dermal grafts or failing that, subcision and fillers. Your scarring isn't severe enough to warrant the risk of lasers or something invasive like that.
  14. You're looking to spend a few hundred dollars on each subcision. Check out this thread about this user's experience with subcision. It's really informative. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/232731-man-in-the-mirror-pre-and-post-subcision-photos/
