  1. Thanks! I always thought subcision was something I need to start with, but you are right, in this lighting my scars look like boxscars mostly. I will try to get a co2 laser done, as I somehow don't trust acids
  2. Maybe this one is better. It's the same cheek in all photos
  3. I'm using Nature's Finest by Nutrisslim Collagen powder and drop in some of CureSupport Liposomal Vitamin D3 and C drops. I heard good reviews of Dr. Ohhira's Liquid Collagen, but it's quite expensive
  4. Collagen supplement haven't improved my pre-existing scars, but new breakouts heal so much better and my overall skin is more plump, which also makes the appearance of old scars slightly better. I haven't had any new scarring since taking collegen and I'm usually switching between from type 1 and type 2 collegen. I buy the one that's in powder form and add some liposomal vitamin D and vitamin C.
  5. Here is a picture with shadows,which makes it look horrifying. I am foremost concerned about the area closer to my mouth, as it's most visible one, the area near my ear gets partially covered by hair, so it's not urgent It's the same cheek, just mirrored. The other cheek is not scarred at all
  6. Some of my scars are pretty deep, others more shallow. A combination of different scars really.
  7. Is it worth getting derminator if what I need is subcision and a filler for my rolling/box/scars and texture+tissue loss? Now that I finally have the money for any procedure needed, it is impossible due to a truly dire covid in my country. However, I could get the derminator and do at least something at home in the meantime, but is there a point? Will it improve anything?
  8. I will have to come off spiro unfortunately. It seems to work for my skin, but gives a lot of unbearable side effects. My mouth is dry, I'm always thirsty and my insomnia has worsened to especially after upping the dose to 100mg. I haven't experienced the insomnia the first time around with spiro, some years ago. I wake up with dry mouth and lips, wanting to pee, my heart raising and can't fall back asleep even after only sleeping for 3 h. Will have to find another alternative for my acne.
  9. I will try upping the dose... how do you guys deal with the mouth dryness, if you have any? It gets worse on higher dosage for me
  10. I've been on 50 mg of Spiro for about 5 months now and I still get some small persistent pimples on my chin, under the nose and a little bit on one cheek. It's very mild, but because my skin scars easily even mild pimples can leave some indents. Also, my chin crease has those annoying pustules almost everyday. I also take Yasmin which already include some Spiro, so wondering if I should up it... my weight is 141, height 5'8, how much are you guys taking? How much worked and how much didn't for y
  11. I don't know what to do anymore - every single tiny pimple leaves an indent in my skin. Even the ones that aren't very inflamed, just fairly small, slightly painful red bumps. Each and every one of them makes a little hole in my face no matter what I do. I use the Ordinary's granactive retinoid interchangeably with glycolic or lactic acid, do an aha/bha mask once a week, have even bought a scar cream for scarless healing, but it doesn't prevent it from leaving a small pit. I'm also taking collag
  12. Is it really worth microneedling deep rolling scars? Feels like nothing can help those but fillers. I feel like I'm microstamping and going through all the pain in vain. It can't stimulate so much collagen that it would lift scars, right?
  13. Hello, I have some horribly looking fat loss in the scared area and thinking about getting a filler. Before I got fat loss my scars didn't look as bad. Does anyone have experience with fillers to plump up scarred areas? Which one is the best?
  14. Hello! What else besides subcision could help me? I don't care about that long tethered scar, would just like to improve the sight of the smaller ones that makes my skin look like it was burned. Would tca peeling help them? My skin's moisture barrier has become better
  15. I'm thinking about purchasing Innate's Adrenal Response supplement with Ashwagandha and other herbs, it's supposed to be good for adrenals and kidneys. Oh damn, hope I can tolerate the GA... if it's so drying then it will be a no-go for my ultra sensitive skin. Will try the Lactic Acid one, if GA won't work. Didn't know that about vit c supplement, wow... Good thing I eat a lot of apples! Sometimes using apples with my celery or pumpkin juice, though celery has loads of potassium and
