  1. VIrginia….hmmm. I'm on the east coast. It would be worth the trip if it actually worked.
  2. Woah, wait, what?? I know about dermaflage. Ordered some, but got frustrated with it. The color match wasn't great, never managed to get it to look right. I ended up being MORE self conscious about my scars, bcs it looked like there was something in them. Eyelash glue, huh? How do you apply it? And can you wear makeup over it?
  3. Wow! Great results!! I had a derm do TCA cross on me…no difference that I could tell.
  4. I had one round of subcision with filler. Two of my scars are completely gone. I have two others that didn't respond…I was supposed to go back for a follow up appt, but I am rescheduling bcs 1) I can't afford another treatment right now, and the way I wear my hair does a pretty good job of camouflaging those particular scars 2) I am starting to see results from the micro pen + venus freeze. I looked in the mirror today and looked like I was wearing foundation! The spattering of individual scars
  5. Did you do a full face peel? Or just spot treat? I've heard promising things about interspersing rolling with peels...
  6. I went to him twice. Traveled from CT to visit him. He's got a great "bedside" manner and is very charming. However, not sure his treatment plan helped much. I went to him initially for silicone mocrodroplet. Had two sessions for my deepest scars. Did NOTHING. He had said I'd see immediate improvement. Also did a pass of fraxel on my cheeks. Meh. I ran out of money and out of patience for the commute into NYC. Maybe if I had more of both...
  7. Those before and afters are amazing. I would mortgage my house to have that treatment if the results were actually as good as that!
  8. If she's your girlfriend, then at SOME point she's going to see your back or see you shirtless. Or feel you shirtless. The sun and salt water might help your back a lot. You can also make sure she's never directly standing behind you I guess. Are you treating your back with anything? (be aware of sun sensitivity) If it's super bad and you just can't deal with it yet, seems lie a lot of people are wearing rash guards these days...
  9. Did it get worse before it got better? I end up chickening out half way through any scar revision bcs I start thinking the scar is getting worse, so I stop! What was your experience with this??
  10. Hard to say…looks like the wounds are still healing…DON'T PICK OR SQUEEZE! I wish someone had shaken me by the shoulders and yelled at me to stop touching my face!
  11. This is what scares me about lasers…and really, all scar revision treatments. So scary to know there is the chance of making things worse. I had four fraxels when it first came out, and I still wonder if it has to do with volume loss to my face. I am in my early forties, and my face is aging much differently than anyone else in my family (Two brothers 9 and 10 yrs older than I am, 1 brother three yrs younger). I had two rounds of micro droplet silicone injections…the scars themselves that w
  12. Thats exciting, Poppy! I found a plastic surgeon nearby that will do excisions. So hard to find, bcs everybody is pushing lasers these days. And I'm not so impressed with lasers. Keep us posted! I am going to book a consult next week….your post inspired me to start looking at this method!
  13. Hey! Just looked at your gallery…see that you rolled and used retina a for a while too. (I've only recently come back to these boards so I'm not familiar with people's journeys yet). I was on the Skin Biology boards for a time. The veteran members there swore by the roll-peel-roll method. The combination of rolling, waiting, peeling, waiting, repeat, apparently had good results for a lot of the members. They have since reformatted the boards over there and I think a lot of those posts have gotte
  14. Oh! So you are doing this yourself? I"ve done some mild Lactic acid peels myself. Nothing heavy duty like what you are doing. Have all of your peels been at the same percentage? I had glycolic peels before I got married. Even those didn't peel much though. Just really red for a day or two. There is something counterintuitive to me about taking the top layers off, when you are trying to get rid of pits…
