  1. I have very sensitive skin and while MAC's foundations don't work for me, the studio finish concealer has been a staple for me for many years. I have never had a problem with it breaking me out. Same goes for the satin blushes. Good luck!
  2. You can get a pretty good idea of the procedure if you take a look at my Punch Float thread.
  3. If you are sensitive to corn starch beware of the loose powder. It is wonderfully silkly, but the corn starch broke me out like crazy.
  4. Which foundation did you get? Dior Skin broke me out in huge cysts.
  5. I'm over 30 and still an oil slick.
  6. 1. No Dr. Y did not recommend the zinc oxide or the neosporin. I used those at my own discretion. When I had punch grafting done many years ago that was the method I used. I also followed this protocol after my first set of punch floats with Dr.Y and I healed very well. Zinc and neosporin are good to use to facilitate healing, at least in my case. 2. My floats did itch during the healing phase, that is very normal. I did not notice any post-op bleeding with my first set of floats, however, I d
  7. 1. CO2 laser did absolutely NOTHING for my existing scars, left me red for months, enlarged my pores and left me with additional rolling scars on my cheeks. 2. Have you done a board search for TCA Cross? There are several in-depth threads detailing the procedure. It is a method that a lot of people found great success. Personally it did not work well for me, so I always recommend a spot treatment to see how you are going to react. 3. Have you thought about subcision followed by a filler or the
  8. I do, I love the way it makes my skin look and feel the following day. I have been using it on and off for a long time and while it will not change a scar, it does make my skin look plumper and more even toned. Below is the version I use. You can check out their webpage Here. Ingredients in the Intense Gel R-ALA Is packed with Natural Vitamin E Oil, Certified Organic Jojoba, Deionized Water, Natural Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA), DMAE, Vitamin C, Pomegranate Extract, Green Tea Extract, Cranberry Ex
  9. Punch floats and Punch grafts have worked well for me in the past. I never had any luck with topicals, including copper peptides.
  10. He just had the procedure done, the pics with the steri-strips are the current ones. Good luck w/ your healing and with your dermabrasion. So how long will you actually wait between the floats and the dermabrasion? I read in the other thread that you were going to be in the sun a lot in the coming months so you were going to wait.
  11. ^ Who did your floats? I thought 23 was a lot! Good luck w/ your healing!!
  12. Hey! My strips really started sliding around on about day 5 or 6. If the area looked really tender/raw I took a pair of tweezers and gently laid the strip back over the float, just to help protect the area. At that point the raised area had already adhered to the skin, I just wanted to give it a bit more protection until I was happy that it had fully healed. I would also put a dab of neosporin on the area before putting the strip back on, I used a Q-tip to place just the smallest bit. By pla
  13. Thank you for the kind words, you are too sweet! I know Woodson had one area floated more than once until she was happy with the results. It really is a unknown area when it comes to skin response. Did all of your areas turn out bad or no change? What was your post-op care like? 1. I followed the diet/supplement guidelines posted at the top of the scar forum..it is the one Rossi posted that he got from Maya. I followed that pretty close to the letter to try and make sure my healing was wo
  14. Hi guys, Finally back with an update, RL has been pretty busy lately and I got lazy with the updates...sorry about that! The floats have healed nicely, pretty much like the first round. When I wear makeup they are not noticeable at all, still a bit of redness though. I started using Retin-A micro about 2 weeks ago, so that caused a bit of irritation. Bear in mind when you have these, the scars are improved (in most cases), but that does not mean they are perfect! Like before, some are totally l
  15. Comes around for me like clockwork. Seems to be improving a bit now that I have started using Retin-A micro. I'm planning on getting some of the mandelic acid LQ recommends and dropping my current AHA. We'll see how it goes!
  16. ^ You would be looking for the 2nd edition of the Beauty Bible, I think it came out around 2002 or so. You can also check out her products and find a lot of info on her HERE.
  17. I second that, her books have helped me avoid some major cosmetic mistakes and I have been pleased with most of her products. Labgirl, other than the minimal scarring how does her skin look?
  18. I also am having an IB with retin-a micro .01%. The zits are different from what I usually get every month. I don't have horrible breakouts anymore, so I def. know the med was causing this one. They seem more red and inflamed, but they seem to go away pretty quickly. I don't have a face full, probably 4 or 5. I have noticed if I spot treat with r-a micro the zit comes to a head much quicker. I'm interested in how the results will go in the weeks to come. I use benzaclin on alternate nights.
  19. One of the biggest reasons that a lot of ppl on this board should be protected while in the sun is due to the sensitizing nature of the medications they may be using...retin-a, etc. Beyond that having some protection will help prevent premature aging, reduce the risk of skin cancer, etc. That does not mean hibernate in your cave until after dark, just be sensible about sun exposure. I believe that getting sun exposure is important for your health, just don't burn to a crisp like I did back in th
  20. Some ppl on the scar forum have complained about indents after cortisone injections. I have had one on my chin with no problems.
  21. The corn starch would break me out like mad. The finished shot looks great!
