  1. I have no idea what this means. Accutane cured my severe cystic acne.
  2. I agree with this 100%. If your acne is scarring, it will not get better on its own. It shows that your skin type has a propensity to scar, so aggressive action MUST be taken as soon as possible. I was also blinded by all the fear mongering online about Accutane, which are totally overblown, and went years before I took it. The one thing I regret the most is not getting on Accutane sooner.
  3. The quickest route would be subcision and a more robust filler like Voluma as suggested above. Permanent fillers like Bellafill are an option since you already know that your scars can accommodate filler material. Important question though, do you find that the filler actually dissipates or does it get displaced and moves to the edges of your scars? That might explain why the filler seems to go away so quickly. It may actually still be there but the scar tissue is so dense in the middle of
  4. Where the heck are you getting laser done for $50?
  5. Scars are terrible, and it all causes us great emotional pain. But we still have to have perspective. I get that people with severe scars face a tremendous amount of distress, hell I'm one of them. But for the people on here stressing because of some minor scars, I urge you to guys to do some real soul searching. My cousin that I grew up with was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer just this week. She had a total hysterectomy, is now infertile, and about to undergo 4 months of chemo. T
  6. You are right, I should have read your post a little closer. I can see what you were intending to say. I just wanted to clarify to other readers who may not understand this nuance. There are current members here who have done slicione micro droplets, and so I wanted them to know that what they had was legal and to not cause alarm. There's a distinction from illegal and not FDA approved, to the more nuanced one which is Silikon 1000 is approved however for a totally different use and used of
  7. Have to point out that Silikon 1000, which is an officially US FDA approved medical grade silicone is available in the US. It is not illegal, but not approved as a dermal filler. It is approved for retinal detachment, but physicians use it off-label LEGALLY, as a filler. Off-label means that a physican can use a legal product but in ways that were not studied or approved. For example, botox is approved for crows feet, but obviously physicians use it all over the face off-labelly. Ther
  8. Why are you so quick to dismiss his concernes, when your acne scars are minor? After all the drama you've put out now you're telling this guy to relax? You threatened suicide over a few scars that no one can even see clearly, and you are dismissing this guy's concerns?
  9. Honestly, it's been a long struggle for me as well. I think mostly I'm here because I have literally done everything there is to do for acne scars, and I want to share what I've learned through trial and error. I've done it all, literally, and I know all about that dark place we go to when we catch a glimpse of our scarred reflection. I would say my scarring was what a lot of people categorize as severe. The only things that have really made an impact on my scarring are fillers and res
  10. If i'm analyzing it correctly, you have raised edges surrounding an indentation. The raised edges make it look even deeper than it really is. Have you tried kenalog injections with 5FU to the raised edges? I think it might flatten those. Once the raised parts are flatter and more flushed with the normal skin, then you can make an assessment of how deep the scar really is. The color is actually pretty good, it's pink not super angry red. I have / had an excision scar on my left cheek t
  11. I honestly don't know because you haven't posted a clear photo. You are usually scrunching up your forehead. Even after I asked to see a completely relaxed forehead, you give me one and said, "it's still a little scrunched here." I haven't been able to accurately see the true extent of your scarring. Plus, I'm just a regular person who has lots of experience, but by no means an expert.
  12. You don't seem very reasonable. Your question is why is he not a billionaire? How is that even a reasonable question or measure of a doctor's skills? Again, you seem to have an all or nothing , scorched earth mentality about everything. I get that you've been burned, but I also think that a large part of why you feel wronged is because your expectations may not be realistic. It really seems like anything less than a pencil thin line will not be acceptable for you , and everything that falls
  13. NO, they use the pictures BY PERMISSION from the doctors who use their machines and do the actual procedures. At the bottom of those pictures in the brochures, it will usually say "Courtesy of Dr.____________". They do not do the procedures themselves, they are not doctors. Dr. Niamtu is the original surgeon and gave permission for them to use his photos as part of their marketing material. You have it backwards, the Med Spas are the ones who stole the photos. Med Spas are not legit m
  14. I've tried it and it works for small scars like ice pics. It is very labor intensive, but if you have good technique it does work. Luckily, I think it may last 2 to 3 days at a time so you don't have to redo it everyday. You really have to do each ice pick by itself. Don't attempt to cover a large area of ice picks all at once with a big application, because it will look like you have a waxy film over your skin. Plus, if you apply it over a huge area, any kind of expression will cause it be
