  1. Your dose seems high, recommend lowering to half for longer to avoid any such effects... Hope all is well
  2. anyone tried or heard of innofill? [Edited link out] I am in South Korea and this is a new innovative treatment that combines subcision with radio frequency. Looks promising. I should be getting s few treatments done this year....
  3. Hey everyone, Anyone tried Banish acne scars treatment? http://banishacnescars.com/ I suppose it's just dermarolling with vitamin c cream. I have never done something like this and stuck with it, but there seems to be some good reviews. Anyone used this with success? Thanks
  4. Can I ask, for those of you who have persistent dryness after taking accutane, Do you feel uncomfortable all the time, as though your eyes, face, lips and scalp are a bit tingly and tight? These are the sensations I feel yet my face can still have some oil on it (partly because I take gamma linolenic acid which helps produce oil) I am taking Lyrica now to see if this helps with the 'pain'/sensations associated these feelings. I don't know if it's best to describe as dry, but it is certai
  5. Hi everyone, I have completely lost the will to live, and a lot of this is due to my side effects. (e.g painful, tingling, burning skin a lot of the time, acne scarring, flushing, sweating, mental health problems, IBS, exfoliative chelitis). I am here to vent, but also to seek any advice on how to carry on living because I really don't feel as though I can function. I am burdened with uncomfortable permanent side effects (I'm 12 years post accutane), debt in trying to treat my skin and
  6. Hey everyone, I am from UK - anyone tried out the naltroxene or cannabis oil over here? I am trying to find a supplier to try this out. My main side effects are my tight and dry face/lips which are always feeling uncomfortable. Some days are better than others but I can't figure out what is causing it. I wash with cerave about once a day and moisturise with the same brand. I also take GLA and hyaluronic acid. My face feels worse at different moments throughout the day, perhaps it flares up o
  7. can anyone offer an update here? Jordan1234 - can we hear what you've been doing and how you are doing? Thanks
  8. Hey, Can I ask where you received the intracel treatment? Also, when you say you plan on getting your own, were will you purchase it from? Sounds like a good plan!
  9. Thanks for the supportive words guys. At times I let things get the better of me for sure. I think the worst bit is the constant dryness left after accutane. My skin is always dry and irritated which sucks. Spending time on fixing this, with moisturisers or whatever, draws my attention to the scars which is not ideal. I suppose I just need to soldier on. I still get affected by this A LOT, and it's been for years. I guess I accept that there will be ups and downs when you have issues with yo
  10. Hey, well you have probably seen my pics now. I have had loads of treatments done, and he is known to be a good cosmetic doctor here in the UK. He did indeed hit lots of scars, I can't fault him on that. Also, I had subcision done with him previously which seemed to go well. Perhaps 1 treatment is not enough and I simply need to go for some more? I am just reluctant to splash out a further £200 for another treatment which may not be effective. The redness of the scars bothers me both bu
  11. thanks for the kind comments. I think on top of the scarring it's the side effects that get me down. My skin is always dry and a bit irritated so I constantly feel it everyday! I hate seeing the same scarred skin for all these years as well! I think there is a lot of redness, not just pits. I think the redness is the worst and makes the scarring look worse unfortunately creams like this have done nothing...
  12. Hey they are pitted. I have added some pics, thanks!
  13. Hey, well I never really scarred before accutane. True, I got a bad breakout after starting accutane, but things got a lot worse and led to red pitted scars which I have had for 11 years.
  14. Hi everyone, Well, I have been feeling down recently. This happens now and then because I have acne scars that have really only improved slightly in the last 11 years; the scars came soon after I finished accutane which also left me with side effects such as fragile skin... Well the list of treatments I have had is pretty remarkable - the total cost I have invested, including transport and time must be in the region of 10,000 British pounds. I don't think that is an exaggeration sadly. T
  15. I thought I would share my experience with airgent. I had it done in London by Dr Patel. I was told that I would need three treatments. I had one treatment and I feel as though it made VERY LITTLE IF ANY difference. Now, I am doubtful if a further two is suddenly going to change things. I think my scars are incredibly stubborn. I have had dermaroller, fraxel, subscision, radiofrequency subcision, and needling done on more than one occasion! I am actually going to make a post about my sc
