  1. You dont need laser. It is expensive and only necessary for extreme cases. I made significant improvement from vbeam and smoothbeam. My dr., who happens to be a worldwide recognized dr. in laser dermatology, wouldn't give you fraxel for red marks.
  2. I can respect other peoples opinions, but I have yet to see one logical, well put counterargument. You have no way to convince me because you have no argument. Im more than willing to eat the crow when I am wrong, but nothing in this thread has come close to topping my op. You still haven't answered my question. If you are able to do that, I will admit I am in the wrong. Until then, stop posting and making a fool of yourself. Honestly, someone argued that our unhappiness is our choice and symp
  3. I find it funny that the few people who disagree haven't made a single argument that does not directly address my question. Every counterargument sounds like something a naive 15 year old wrote. Why would I blame myself for something out of control? I was always going to get severe acne due to my genes, regardless of my behavior. I was born with a facial deformity. If people came out of the womb with bad acne instead of developing it later in life, it would be given far more sympathy. I was bo
  4. Everyone in my family had acne, from my siblings, to parents, to grandparents. If I am fortunate enough to have kids, they will get acne. I will take them to a derm as soon as they get their first zit.
  5. "Not medically necessary" = Ignorance. It goes against all logic... If treatment for acne is covered by insurance, why isn't acne scarring? If the red mark is convex it is covered, but if it is concave, it isn't. This goes despite the fact that scarring lasts much longer, is more difficult to treat, and has no mainstream OTC products. I believe it all ties in with, and is reflective of our social structure. More profit can be made this way, and with the lack of awareness in the general publi
  6. Great post paul. You hit the nail on the head on all points. I have a situation similar to yours. I have isolated myself for so long I have kinda lost touch with the circles I once ran with. When I drink, or smoke weed, I don't care about my acne at all. When I come down, I feel worse than I did before. Totally worthless. Then I just want to drink or smoke more. Its an on going cycle that can be tough to break. Ive been clean since February though. As far as self worth goes, you seem like a ver
  7. Some people agreed abyro. They recognized my flawless logic and moved on. To those who disagree, you have two options, a) Explain why so many people with acne kill themselves, are depressed, have anxiety disorders, are virgins, have a lower quality of life, statistically speaking, if society isn't largely responsible. OR b) Admit you have made no strong argument, you are ignorant, naive, and that you are wrong and I am right. I hate people that act like society is perfect and doesn't do a l
  8. No good. Human beings soak in their surroundings and ultimately become a product of their environment. With a disease like acne, at a certain point after millions upon millions of instances of suicide, depression, anxiety, far many more virgins, it is no coincidence. The whole, "its up to you, put a smile on your face and go into the world, its not as bad as cancer" is a very weak argument to my main point. The very existence of this board proves my point. If society didn't treat acne as
  9. Im still waiting for a reasonable, intelligent argument. Acne -> Red marks on face -> Higher Suicide risks -> High anxiety/depression Someone connect the dots for me, if I am wrong. Are the red marks somehow controlling the brain? Or is there a variable (society) causing that? Are people here actually dumb enough to believe acne marks control the brain and make people kill themselves?
  10. What a dumbass lmfao. Please elaborate on your moronic points so I can properly explain how stupid you are. 1: I dropped out of college because I was physically incapable of going to class. This was recognized and I was given a tuition refund for a medical withdraw. 2: I was laid off. I am one of the nicest people you will interact with. He had to make cutbacks and told me I was chosen because I appeared unapproachable. 3: I had horrible acne for 5 years and I "threw myself in to life".

I specifically said in my post that I am not asking for money, but for sympathy and awareness. Its people like you I am talking about. Acting like severe acne is no big deal because it isn't life threatening.
