  1. F*ck acne... u know why? Here's my story: My face was so awesome up until i hit 18 that was when I started breaking out. It was cured sometimes but in the past year, i can could the days when my face was presentable. I have 1 or 2 inflamed ones at a time and when they're healed, others are sure to come. Not to mention those deep white heads that are so hard to remove and blackheads and not to mention scarring. The point is I have spent literally thousands of dollars on acne treatments and I ha

  3. hopefully it won't scar or cause further infection that will cause more scarring, but this is recommended by my derm as the best way IF YOU MUST POP THAT ZIT. Never use your fingers because your fingers contain numerounds kinds of bacterias that are the key to scarring. Instead poke into the middle of that zit (pop only if you see the yellow pus) with a BRAND NEW needle. 1. if you use a medical needle (used for injections) then go ahead and just poke softly into it. 2. if you use a brand ne
  4. I have tried them all laser, mederma, silicone pad, vitamin e, fruit acid, micro dermbrasion, TCA, TCA layer method, Iontophoresis, you name it I have tried it. finally after 4 years... I have found my cure. "STEROID INJECTION" done by my dermatologist about one and a half weeks ago (after having tried many different ones). It has flattened out a lot... 80 -90% ..she said to expect more improvement in two weeks. She said that this was permanent.
  5. DO NOT DO IT! Laser treatments are usually crappy. If you will pay 6000 dollars for it. Try flying to Thailand for only 1200 dollars (round trip) and get the laser done here (no more than 200-400 dollars). You can take a vacation there for a week and go home while still having about 3000 dollars left. (or just do laser and fly back)
  6. I have always believed in TCA and its power and I have experimented with it quite a bit. But I have always wondered if it could ever treat hypertrophic or raised scars. I have that this raised scar on my nose for a while now and I'm sure some of you may have had it. I tried many treatments including laser, mederma and silicone sheets and finally my answer came true. the answer is TCA. now we all know that TCA cannot be used to treat hypertrophic scars so I experimented with it. The first
  7. that's what my derm keeps telling me and I live by it- sleep early and at the same time everyday for 7-8 hours it doesn't mean you must sleep at the exact minute but let's say you sleep around 10-11 then that's when you must sleep everyday. Do not take naps during the day either as some of you may have noticed after your unusual naps your acne tends to get worse! Irregular sleeping patterns is probabbly the number one cause of acne... second is try not to stress out not even about the ac
  8. I think it's scary when you go into a derm's office and not knowing anything about different treatments. I mean think about it these personal clinics are there for bussiness and they will try to sell you anything that can make them the most money. I mean chances are they will recommened something expensive and promising like laser, but if you have done your own studies you will know that things like lasers don't always work(can I even say rarely?) I have read a lot of posts about doctors rec
  9. I have been using AHA 20% for almost half a year and I have had no breakouts , not directly because of it anyway.
  10. I live in Thailand and I visit my dermatologist about once a month and I have been using these creams that are just truely amazing on acne. There are three tubes and each tube are different. 1. The red one- apply morning and night before washing your face. apply from 15-1 hour depending on how much you can take. After washing it off your acne will shrink about 50 percent or more! 2. The blue one- like the red one but not as strong apply, only at night after everything you have applied on y
  11. trust me apply lime juice on cotton balls and leave on red marks for 10 minutes. Immediate improvement , and even more imrpovement days after. Do this twice a week. and later once a week.

    Lime

    Limes have more vitamin C than oranges, second to guavas. But the point is that if you soak cotton balls with lime juice, apply to your face and leaves it there for 10 minutes. You will notice afterwards that your dark spots have lighten about 40-50% right away. After that they will continue to get better and better. You shouldn't do this more than twice a week, because it could dry your skin like hell. good for 1. Dark spots. 2. Redness. 3. Freckles. 4. brightening your face.
  13. if you look on Ebay you can find 80 and 100 percent also.
  14. you can apply at one spot. with ice picks you must do TCA Cross which is using a clean toothpick dip the tip into a strong TCA from 40-100% (100%) could be too strong. I use around 70-80% . Then press into your ice pick hard (but not too hard) once. If it frosts then you will be okay.
