  1. While I agree dermarolling isn't the best form of microneedling (instead favouring the dermastamp) why do you exclude it entirely?
  2. You have boxcar type scars, and unfortunately glycolic isn't going to help them improve, since that only helps superficial, ie epidermal skin issues. Look into fractional Co2 laser or if you're short on cash, micro/dermaneedling - keep with the vitamin C serum, that's just good skincare practice, as is the sunscreen. To a lesser extent glycolic is too - just don't go nuts with it. please don't chat shit.
  3. You're taking the piss, right? & Awh jesus fuck, dude, atleast do Fraxel repairs. Restores are going to do absolutely nothing of note.

  5. That's unfortunate - it is an effective and cheap treatment. Please have a look at some of the evidence behind it before being so dismissive. https://scholar.google.li/scholar?q=%28microneedling%7Cdermaroller%7Cdermastamp%29+%28Atrophic+scar%7Cacne+scar%7Cscar%29&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5 http://libgen.io/scimag/index.php?s=microneedling+&journalid=&v=&i=&p=&redirect=1
  6. http://dermaroller.owndoc.com/dermaroller-instructions.pdf Read through those dermaroller instructions. They're extremely informative.
  7. It didn't help you. You just think it did. You placebo'd yourself. This stuff has been proven not to work, so stop passing it on. Some products are too harsh, for some, but thats for the user to decide. They should know their own skin by now.
  8. Steady on there, buddy. PI Hyperpigmentation and PI Erythema are two different things. If it’s PIE, then it disappears if you apply pressure to it, like putting a glass on your face. Else, it’s PIH, in which case the topicals mentioned will in fact help them fade. Retin-A is primarily for acne, yes, but it speeds up skin cell turnover and does some other neat stuff like increase collagen production, which is making it a popular anti-aging product. Your link contains hy
  9. Holy shit, brosis, thats $23 a tube! Try here: http://www.alldaychemist.com/a-ret-7914.html theres a $25 flat rate shipping though (bearing in mind, it is coming from India), so make it worth it. I use them myself for A-ret and another meds. *Note this is the strongest available, lower strengths are available on the site. eg http://www.alldaychemist.com/a-ret-7910.html Generic medications, for all intents and purposes, are equal to other brands. dont be fooled. They also sell hydroquinon
  10. What percent glycolic peel would you suggest starting with? I steered away from that because some peoples skin is more sensitive than others. buy a higher strength peel and dilute as necessary (You can google a guide, its really all about ratios, a child could do it) but I started with a 20% myself. Take from that what you will.
  11. Do you have a photo of this? Would help evaluation Also: How are you so sure you've lost muscle? It's less likely (and more hopeful, if you're into that) to think otherwise.
  12. Okay, for now, I'll concede that you are right, and I'm relying on anecdotes when I shouldn't be. I do believe I've read this in a study before and will update if and when I find it. Til then, keep up asking for citations - it is a good thing that this forum needs more of. Nope
  13. PIH/Red Marks: http://www.medicaljournals.se/acta/content/download.php?doi=10.1080/000155598441954 Inhibition of healing (and thus an increased tendency to scar) falls down to the fact that is is extremely drying to the skin. Studies haven't been performed so this is evidence from anecdotes. (Whoops!)
  14. Hi Generally the issue is L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) oxidises very quickly in the presence of light, oxygen and temperature. A tell-tale sign it's oxidised and thus useless is it's turned a brown-ish or redish colour, rather than being clear or.. like champagne. Your product contains a Vitamin C derivative (sodium ascorbyl phosphate) which is more stable than L-A A, however, and I cannot be bothered to dig up the journals right now L-Ascorbic Acid is the most effective form of vitamin C in
  15. I'm gonna have to backpedal, I'm afraid *shame* Your skins vitamin A concentration from the adapelene w/ BP will be fine. Citation: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9990414 The point about BP making PIH last longer still stands, though. I don't have any recommendations for peel brands because I make my own, but anything you get should be pretty standardised. But while you still have active acne, Salicylic peels are a good move as they dissolve oil (unclogging pores) and speed up cell
