  1. This is ridiculous; the derm made a recommendation, you decided on your own to do something completely different, and the doctor is responsible? Don't spend even a penny trying to litigate this; you'll be throwing your money away.
  2. This might sound stupid, but any tips on how to find the right color, short of going to a make-up store? If not, I might just buy a whole bunch of shades and try them out at home.
  3. Actually, hypopigmented skin does not tan as other skin does (as there is not as much melanin). While the skin may tan a bit, the rest of your face will tan even more, making it more noticeable.

  8. I know what you mean. I'd feel pretty badly if I ended up damaging my skin to get rid of scars that don't negatively affect my life.
  9. Might I be able to get confirmation of this by one or two more users?
  10. Hello, After a bit of lurking, I've finally got myself a digicam and have found the nerve to post these pics. Since these are flash pictures, it's hard to capture the extent of my scars due to the elimination of shadows. Anyway, I'd appreciate some help in determining what kind of scarring I have.
