  1. umm, ya'll... https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/04/160401144507.htm they grew skin! This has to be good news, right? i mean this sounds pretty good? "Using reprogrammed iPS cells, scientists from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) in Japan have, along with collaborators from Tokyo University of Science and other Japanese institutions, successfully grown complex skin tissue--complete with hair follicles and sebaceous glands--in the laboratory. They were then able to impla
  2. Haha I hope so! That's even better!
  3. On their website it says they're gearing up to begin phase one clinical trials in mid to late 2016. The FDA requires three rounds of clinical trials so even if it's promising it could still be a while. Here's a video of them applying the hydrogel to the pigs in the porcine study though! http://www.nature.com/jid/journal/v135/n10/extref/jid2015182x2.mov
  4. These links look promising also!! http://wwwhome.postech.ac.kr/web/eng/etc_02?p_p_id=EXT_BBS&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&_EXT_BBS_struts_action=%2Fext%2Fbbs%2Fview_message&_EXT_BBS_messageId=13961 http://www.nature.com/nmat/journal/v14/n7/full/nmat4294.html
  5. Don't worry guys, we have to get this eventually! In 1903, the New York Times predicted that flying machines might be possible in 1 to 10 million years, and later that same year, the wright brothers made their first flight! So who knows what they'll come up with in the near future
  6. This seems a little more clear, but it looks like good news to me! Could it be one of the forms of the hydrogel that they're working on? http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/researchers_step_closer_to_custom_building_new_blood_vessels_ http://www.genengnews.com/keywordsandtools/print/4/31941/ These came out two days ago (:
  7. http://inbt.jhu.edu/2013/07/09/burn-healing-gel-could-soon-be-commercialized-for-veterinary-use/ this was published yesterday and I thought it was pretty interesting (:
  8. Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how wonderful that is to hear! Thank you so so much for letting us take this little journey with you Greg! (:
  9. You look great! I'm so excited that you found something that works for you. and I can't wait to see how your next laser goes! It definitely gives me hope. Also, question: did any of your scars vanish completely?
  10. Have you seen Gregs latest update? He said he still had redmarks up to two months post op when his doctor recommended the v-beam laser. He said it took away the redness and he's really satisfied with the results! So that might help you to! But I would probably also just get a check up with another derm just to see if they're on the same page as your doctor. If they are, you don't have anything to worry about (:
  11. Wow! Thank you guys for your answers! I really admire how dedicated and knowledgeable you all are (:
  12. Just curious...from what I understand, the scar tissue has to be excised first, right? So would this be practical for someone with extensive scarring? Like people who have rolling scars all over their cheeks, or just widespread scarring in general? Or would the hydrogel be effective in those conditions if say, applied directly after an ablative laser treatment? Or do they just have to keep waiting for the NEXT big thing to come along?
  13. Oh my goodness! I think this may be happening to me to! I started using salicylic acid in August (2%) and it worked MIRACLES. I didn't have bad acne, just persistant breakouts and blackheads. I would put it on a couple of times a day and just leave it. I noticed that a pimple here and a pimple there would leave small scars behind, but they didn't bug me because they were small and on the side of my face. It was wierd though, since i've never had problems with scarring before. My skin texture was
  14. Sorry man. Been real busy. Honestly? Stick with the Repair or DeepFX. The ultrapulse (100% ablation) is too agressive and the results were not as good as the repair was. I will do another repair in a few months (after spring semester). There is definitely an improvement with the Fraxel: Repair when it comes to textural and pores. Good luck! PS quote my message if you want a quick reply otherwise I dont know that you asking me a question since I rarely long on the boards these days. Thanks!
  15. Hey collegeboy! I've kind of been lurking on here, and i'm dying to know how your recovery is going, so i decided to make a profile. Just so I could say, I'm dying of suspense over here! My scars are SO much like yours, mainly just textural issues with enlarged/scarred pores, but enough to bug me. So i was wondering how much improvment you saw on your pores from your first fractionated co2 laser alone, and if any scarred pores went back to regular size, and then how much improvement you've seen
