  1. Hi Mochichan88, if your avatar is your picture, you are very pretty. I completely know what you mean about how inner beauty in today's society is no longer enough. I had so many people call me a "pervert" and a "dirty man" and all kinds of very insulting remarks because of how I look. I had severe acne and now I have scars. I once had a mother complain to her husband about how I was staring fiercely at her child and that scared her when I was working as a teacher. I honestly didn't mean to
  2. It missed out subcision which is good for deep boxcar scars.
  3. Yes, shaving makes my scars stand out so much more. I think it's the fact that my facial hair distracts my eyes from the scars and with the hair gone, the scars take centre stage.
  4. Subcision + any laser. Subcision is like the hard tools to smoothen out a jagged plank while lasers the fine sandpaper for the finishing touches.
  5. On the contrary, my derm said that the strips makes sense as they help get rid of dead skin and clogged up pores. He says that some blackhead removal machines work the same way. His advice, though, is to be gentle with the skin by not ripping the strip out but slowly lifting it.
  6. What kind of injections are you getting? The cortisone injections worked for me, along with a (thrown in free) 2 shots of IPL on the scar to lighten the colour.
  7. NO THEY ARE NOT!!! NEVER NEVER NEVER LET THE GLOWING SUNBURN LOOK TRICK YOU INTO THINKING YOUR SCARS ARE BETTER. THEY WILL ACTUALLY BECOME WORSE AFTER YOUR SKIN TOTALLY HEALS AS COLLAGEN HAS BEEN DESTROYED. WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW IS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIN BY SLAPPING ON SOME AFTER SUN SKIN RECOVERY CREAM.

    Actually I don't see why anyone is angry by Tenzin's question, I see it as rather innocent. It's after all, his point of view.
  9. I've got a scar like that on my cheekbones, kinda like a three edged star. I treated it with a good dose of subcision and lasers.
  10. Yea, subcision's lumps are normal and please don't fret about them. You did right by massaging it.
  11. Subcision will not keep you away from work. If you asked me,go for subcision first. The dermaroller is basically a handheld device with a roller at the end with needles sticking out.
