  1. My backround: Ive taken a 6 month (40mg 2 months, 80mg 4 months) course of accutane. 1 and a half months later my oily skin came back (i have to wash 3 to 4 times daily) and its been 5 months off and im starting to break out more. I get a chain (one grows, then disappears a week later, then another grows right after, sometimes 2 or 3) of sore pimples that dont eventually release its contents to th surface. They're just tender for 3 days, and go away 6 or 7 days. They dont scar thankfully but im
  2. Thanks for the info, i guess i should wait
  3. Have a few deep scars id like to try improve, ive been off accutane a month and a half, do you think its ok to get subcision after 3 months instead of 6? My understanding was that lasers and exfoliating should be avoided but subcision is just a needle in your skin? Thanks guys
  4. seems sound to me, well the excision being the best , next to subcision. But its prob only good for isolated scars but ppl with alot of scars clost together won't benifit much from it i think. Also what if a scars close by the eye?
  5. i was going to order some a few months back but what worries me is i might order the wrong "color" for my skin. I'm not to sure on what to choose. I'm native american, i'm not to sure if theres a perfect color for my skin. i guess thats why the offer samples right? maybe i'll give it a go soon, thanks for the notice rupert, i appriaciate the advice
  6. May I ask which treatment (or combination of treatments) worked for YOU? Because, in my experience, dermabrasion makes acne scarring WORSE. The only thing it would "cure" is the red spots, but those aren't permanent scars. It does nothing for the scarring. And, since it can make it worse, I'm not sure people should continue to try UNTIL they come out with something that actually WORKS. Not to be disagreeable, but what actually works now? Not dermabrasion (I've had that), and according to som
  7. Well, I do use it for just the worse scars, the others I just leave. I realised that as long as I got a very nice correction of the worst scars, then I'm happy to leave the smaller ones. Nobody would ever notice them anyway. I couldn't correct every scar on my face, it would take far too long. As for how long dermaflage lasts. I did an application Saturday morning 10am and it is still looking good Monday 5.30pm (now). So u can get a fair bit more out of it than a day (assuming good application).
  8. How deeP do u guys think subsicions good for? I got deep ones but at the same time i have alot of shallow ones together that form a a bad texture.
  9. Just took a look at ur photos, you have had great results, looks like you had minir scaring in the past noone body would wven think twice about ur scars. You deserve great skin, good luck!
  10. What about skin printing? Or organ printing? Theres videos on youtube but im on a phone so i cant post. Also i read a artical that a heart injected with stem cells reduce scar tissue by 66%, im also lazy to get it too but you google stem cells and heart it should pop up. Unfortunatly the heart attack victims although theres reduced scar tissue, the heart is still limited and not very much improved fuction wise. But if they can reduce scar tissue in the heart im sure eventually they can do it wit
  11. I was watching videos on toutube about this, theres alot out there. I think i heard one of them say its 10 years off tho, but then dr oz said that we'd be able to cure parkininz diease within single digit years and that hes willing to bet hos left testical on it (maybe he didnt say the last part). But i think they can alreay grow new skin, i just dont know whats holding them back
  12. Hi matt do you have new pictures of your suctioned results?

    Laviv

    anyone have any news on laviv? i know theres already doctors for folds and if you ask they could perhaps they could do it for scars "off the record" but i'm afraid that if your the first one the doctor hasn't got much experience with scars and won't inject corectly, if that makes sense
  14. Hi guys im 170 pounds male, i take 80mg of accutane a day. First 3 months were 40, 2 months on 80mg. At first i had deep cysts that left awful scars and my face was extremly oily ( ihad to wash 3 times a day) now my face is way less oilly but im still getting pimples and black heads. The thing is every winter my face gets better becuase its less humid and cool. Im afraid that accutane didnt do anything and when summer comes im goin to break out again, which i couldnt take again. Should i ask my
  15. Thanks for keeping us updated Greg, your skin looks way better. I was wondering if you still plan on getting a fraxel after? Or will you be satisfied with the subcisions? Fraxel has alot of risk of what I read... Anyways im sure I can speak for everyone when we all hope you bang alot of chicks now that your skins improved so much
  16. They still look red, just let it heal for a couple months it'll close up so much that you wouldn't notice or you can Tca cross them. I'm going off experience though so take it as a opinion
  17. I was looking through Dudley's post and found that. Does the gauge being used for subcision leave a scar? Does it require stitches? Wouldn't subcision work better then lasers for "wavy" scars because you'll be building a layer of scars underneath the scars? In the video you see the guy doing his whole cheek, I think that's a good idea, while some doctors prescribe lasers for that type of scars, which doesn't make since to me. What do you guys think of all this?
  18. I'm sure I read that they burned the mce full thickness, then performed full thickness burn wound excisions after 48hours. Which IMO a full thicknes burn is the same as a full thickness excision anyway, in that both wounds have to regrow the full tissue architecture... Oh so I guess when they decide to release it and if it works youd have to excise your acne scars and use the hydro gel
  19. But the after picture still shows damage? It's hairless and whitish, am I missin something here? Also On the first page of the document, doesn't it say how they made it? My view Jacno, if you look at the pdf in the pdf viewer not firefox or IE etc. and then zoom in 300% you will see the control and the other scaffold are still red, yet the hyrdrogel is not. >>IMO this shows the [hydrogel] wound has finished re-epithelizing and healing after 21 days (and as such because it is in a

  21. There's no new info about it online. Not sure whats there to talk about?

    Laviv

    im pretty sure its subcision to break the scar tissue, then laviv to fill it in. I read a isologen pdf and dr chu said it would take tremendous pressure by laviv if its only by itself. I wonder if dr chu was the one who found that out? if he did hes really something So would you have to get all the subcisions done first and then the Laviv, or do you get the Laviv done between sessions? no you'd get subcision to break the scar tissue, then you'd fill the gap with laviv right after. But thats ju

  24. Does subcision work for box scars? I've seen many images of people with scars like yours getting good improvements with subcision. (40-80%, ) Still, you should try to contact a dermatologist ). Good luck thanks, thats good to hear. i'm hoping laviv works so it'll help all of us
  25. they said " had very good success" but where are the pictures? not even on there website are there pictures
