  1. I was stood in the supermarket queue with all my greens, wheat free products and fruit looking in people's trolleys. All these people with beautiful 'normal' skin with not one green in sight and frozen pizas, fizzy pop and cakes galore. And there I stood with my disfigured skin, head down, thinking "life is such a bitch".
  2. Yes, very true. When I started on my journey (or should I say nightmare), I didn't even have the internet. We are so lucky in that respect these days. Especially with these boards where we can share our experiences, discoveries and have eachothers back really. We are like a little army lol and one day we will win the battle!
  3. Yes, I have those days. Quite regular now I am older and totally drained with decades of this s**t. But.... you have to keep determined and never lose hope, because once hope has gone, there is nothing left. I have read mostly positive things about rolling and that in itself is reassuring, as most reviews are so conflicting it is mind messing. I think patience is key and those with the fantastic results have kept at it, as it is such a gradual process. Rolling is definitely a route I am go
  4. It's **** like this that spoil these boards. I simply cannot believe anyone would be so naive to think that fasting for 40 days will heal scars. Added to this, I beleive from what I have read, your concern is one ice pick scar on your nose. If this is the case, then psychiatry would be a better route for you. Do you understand how many people on these boards would literally cry for joy if they woke up with only a scar on their nose? It is wrong topics like this are not removed. One d
  5. I am having the same dilemma. Like you said, there are thousands of sites now selling peels/rollers/miracle cures - it is so frustrating! Added to this problem is never being able to trust reviews or blogs as 90% of these seem to be affiliates. It is the same with Derms/Surgeons these days. Most are simply motivated by greed. I find it so tragic. I'm sorry I wasn't able to offer anything constructive, I just wanted to tell you, I feel your frustration.
  6. Mike I am really crossing my fingers here that you have success with this treatment. I could relate so much to your original post. A fellow Brit here routing for you every step of the way!
  7. Anyone notice that the female with both boxscar and icepick scars ended up with no scars? Seems too good to be true, (but secretly excited). Thinking on it, of all the treatments I have researched over many years - subcision and needling are the two that seem to yield the best results. A light TCA thrown in to even out the tone - actually sounds like a good combined treatment plan.
  8. Hi Summer I am following this thread - fellow Brit here with the same issues. I hope you keep us informed on your journey, I am searching for a fantastic Derm/Surgeon in the UK, but it sometimes seems like an impossible task as the British seem to be in the minority on these boards. I also will never touch a laser.
  9. Interesting stuff. I was only thinking about this lately. I remember reading about 10 years ago about an acne vaccine that would be given to school age children and didn't hear anything else since. Thanks for this.
  10. Bump. I wonder if anyone else has gone down the micro silicone droplet route. The results do look amazing. Scary stuff though! [Removed]
  11. Battle I read that the tinned fish in olive oil is good for you, but to avoid vegetable oil. Morrisons/Tesco in UK do a selection of tinned fish in olive oil.
  12. I agree. I can't see anything at all to worry about, your skin looks virtually flawless to me. You are a handsome young lad and should be enjoying your life.
  13. I'm glad lasers worked out well for you Dudley, but lasers are not the 'gold standard' treatment for acne scars for everyone. I suggest the poster does intense research and weighs up the risks. The fact is, there are a lot of risks with lasers, especially re:pair. The ratings for re:pair by people who have had this treatment themselves is very low on Realself. The majority of unsatisfied ratings are not from people who were simply hoping for better results, but from people whos lives are now
  14. I've read some nonsense on these boards, but this is by far superior.
  15. I did purchase it and used it on a raised scar hoping it would flatten it somewhat. I didn't expect it to do anything else. It didn't make a difference. The stick itself is tiny and does not last long at all. As expected, thumbs down for Remescar from me. Glad it has helped you gKitten.
