  1. Use lancets which are small needles used by diabetics to get a blood sample. They are just a tiny needle at the end of a small plastic "handle". They are soooo much cheaper than syringes and work better. You can get 30 gauge lancets at Walgreens or anywhere similar.
  2. That's interesting Mav, because I've never heard of self-needling going bad, completely NOT working nor EVER making scars worse. I think it was Gumby (sorry if I've got that wrong) who reported he had perfect results with self-needling but it took 2 years of consistent treatment. Yes, it's true that the swelling temporarily plumps up the depressions and it can be disappointing when the swelling goes down. While I truly respect your concern, I think needling is a potential treatment we can ex
  3. I just posted the info below in the "Needling Mini-Miracle" thread before I noticed your question. Here it is again. Good luck! __________ "The best needling needles are very inexpensive.

  4. The best needling needles are very inexpensive. Use lancets which are made for getting a blood sample from diabetics. You do not need to buy the lancet device (the little pen-shaped gadget you stick the lancet into). Lancets are available without prescription at any drug store, including Walgreens where I bought a box of 100 Ultra Thins (30 gauge) for about $6. They are sterile and they are the perfect depth for inverted acne scars; you are in no danger of inserting the needle too deeply because
  5. Hey Mete Pete, The way I understand the saline treatment works is that it actually creates a space within the layers of damaged tissue that was tethered to itself and thus causing the depression. So in effect, the saline works a bit like needling by unbinding the stuck, depressed tissue and a bit like a filler, allowing collegen to develop in the newly formed space. But what I don't understand is if this procedure works so well, why would there be only one doctor/clinic performing it, and wh
  6. Yeah, I agree, if he's the kind of guy who would reject you on something as superifcial as acne scars, is he really the guy of your dreams? Would you want a guy like that to be the father of your children? Would you want a boyfriend who would judge your friends on faults they can't help? He might have a lot of great qualities you love, but if he's shallow... EVERYBODY DESERVES BETTER THAN THAT! Invite him over and let him see you as you are. If he rejects you, then be thankful he is out of you
  7. I have never heard of anyone who had a sunken result from TCA, so hopefully this is just a temporary effect. It is normal for the treated areas to initially become darker, which may make the surrounding area appear lighter. I don't think you have anything to worry about at this point! Best of luck!
  8. the only thing I know is it makes your face red or something. it's also called niacin, present in bread/flour etc ←
  9. Hi Philly, I agree, your scars do not seem very deep, so I bet you do not have to have any sort of invasive surgical procedure to get rid of them. Especially for the red/purple spots, I really recommend a peel. Your results won't be immediate, but after a couple months you should see definite fading and many will completely disappear. Discolored spots are rarely deep, but instead reside on the surface layers of skin. Glycolic acid peels in 30% or lower (no lower than 10%) are generally very saf
  10. I consulted a plastic surgeon on the possibility of fat injection for my moderate-to-severe acne scarring (mostly small but deep ice pick). She instantly tried to talk me out of it, stating that Restilyne (sp?) or dermabrasion would be much more successful for me. I was very dissappointed as I was so hopeful that fat injection would be my answer because it is more permanent that collagen and certainly less invasive than dermabrasion. Sadly, that was my experience. But still, my common sense te
