  1. I apologize if you've answered this previously (I read through the whole thread, but I still may have overlooked it!) but... What was your timing when using the TCA plus the stamping? Would you stamp first, then wait two weeks and do TCA spot, then wait two more weeks to stamp again, etc? Or what was that routine like? I know doing too much in a short timeframe can be troublesome, so I was just curious how you spaced them out when using both methods.
  2. Session 1: 4/12/11 A lot more painful than I expected, but whatever. Took about 15 minutes, and she used the highest setting to start off purposely aggressive. I was VERY red afterwards, but it faded after a few hours. No acne treatments or anything besides the Cetaphil wash was to be used that night. Session 2: 4/19/11 Going for my second session today. No improvement to speak of since the first round, but I didn't have a hideous reaction either. Maybe slightly more active than my 'baselin
  3. I had my first Isolaz treatment today, I'll post about it later... I gotta run!
  4. I was on Ortho in college and it completely killed my face. I broke out so so so bad on it, that it was absolutely unreal.
  5. I've been using the Vitamin Shoppe brand B5 for probably about three years now. It was hardly a miracle, but I felt that it marginally helped me overall. About two or three months ago, Puritan's Pride was having some crazy sale like Buy 2 Get 3 free or something, and I was almost out of my latest bottle of Vitamin Shoppe B5, so I decided to buy the Puritan's Pride B5 this time around. So as I've said, it's been about two or three months now since I've been taking the Puritan's Pride brand, and
  6. Thanks so much for this. This is good info.
  7. I've been trying to do some research on my own, but I'd really like to have some personal recommendations for doctors in the Philadelphia area if possible. I'm primarily looking to get Restylane (or possibly Juvederm, or some type of collagen injection) treatment for my rolling scars. So let me know if any of you are from around here and what your experiences are. Thanks!
  8. It's hard not to be skeptical of--well, basically everything after all that we have surely been through. But just from viewing all of the videos on YouTube, I have a slight glimmer of possible hope for this. I just emailed him with some questions, and I also listened to the interview from HighonHealth.org and I'm thinking about giving it a shot. I whole-heartedly trust Fran from HighonHealth and she'd be the first person to shoot it down if she didn't think it was actually successful. And I jus
  9. I wish I had an answer for you, but unfortunately I don't. If there were legit quick fixes that existed, then no one would have skin problems. I want to tell you to not worry about it and just go out and have fun with your friends, but that would make me a huge hypocrite. Because there have been many many times where I've flaked out on plans because of my skin freaking out at the most inappropriate times, so I totally understand where you're coming from. But you should still think about going
  10. Update: Well it popped on its own. Well, not exactly popped, but I made some sort of facial gesture that caused it to erupt and it start seeping lovely pus out of it. Not the entire head, just one portion of it. So I gently just got out as much of the pus as I could. So I guess I'll just keep icing and Neosporin-ing it? I don't want to over-do it and aggravate it more, but I can't stand not taking some sort of action haha. But there's still a head there and it's still very large. Oh and I don't
  11. Okay well I've still been icing and I put Neosporin on before bed and no improvement when I woke up this morning. I can't tell, but it may have even gotten a bit bigger. Or maybe it's just my imagination because I'm analyzing it to death. :/ Probably wont be a very happy Thanksgiving for me...
  12. I could never go down to the gym (we have a community gym in our apartment complex) without makeup on. And I hate the feeling of sweating in my makeup. And of course that cannot be good for the skin, to sweat with makeup on. So it's like... you exercise to help your skin, but in the process you're actually probably hurting your skin too. Vicious cycle, as usual for us!
  13. I can relate to this more than you know. Except substitute "roommate who has perfect skin" for "family". I feel like such a sham all the time. But now if I all-of-a-sudden just stopped doing it, I think it would be utterly shocking, just because I'm never seen without makeup ever. Like clockwork everyday: Wake up, creep into the bathroom, shower, stay in there for however long it takes me to put my makeup on, then continue on with my day. Even if I wake up and I'm STARVING.. I could never jus
