  1. Hey dude, If I'm not mistaken you posted your pic(s) several months ago asking for scar treatments. yes he did. I think your skin looks normal for 46 year old. I don't see anything wrong with it.
  2. but if i reacted this way to everryone who makes me superangry about my skin I would be an angry person indeed. I find that the cold calm silence creeps people out much more. just my 2 cents
  3. i have some. I been told lasers but the laser horror stories are too hard to ignore. I don't care if it happened to 1 or 99 person out of 100, but even that miniscule chance is too much for me. Especially on my face where something going wrong can have disastrous consequences worse than a tiny raised scar.
  4. i love'em. but it's kind of an on and off love affair. I had to get rid of them for a modeling gig, but now they're back. my face is kind of heart shaped, and bangs balances it out a bit. Besides, get longish bangs, definitely at least to eye brows unless you have a big forehead. Long bangs look good and if you don't like it, then you can side sweep it after about a month (or less if your hair grows fast). post a pic once you get the bangs
  5. I have same, but bigger pores than yours, but i dunno if that's because camera is not picking it up. I'll tell you from experience nothing can really help....part of us not having smooth skin is genetics. Your scars and mine as well are minor. That's good of course. But on the other hand, there is absolutely nothing that can be done. also, there are many risks involved with such procedures which can cause worse scarring. not a good idea to throw out the baby with the bath water. i'm a girl an
  6. something similar happened to me with bp. I put tooo much on my cheek bone and the whole area kind of sunk in, or maybe the bp just burned the area, making it appear darker and hence sunkeninsh. After a year, it did level up, but that was a whole year.
  7. I think you should feel lucky you have a honest derm who didn't offer you hope in a happy meal to go in exchange for your wallet.
  8. it's because our faces are slightly puffy when we wake up. the puffiness makes the scars less noticeable.
  9. acne did not make me crazy but my scars and bad skin texture (huge pores) did. Not them per se but the way my family and relatives have treated me because of it. It's very strange but when I was very young, I was pretty ugly, and my family/relatives always pushed that in my face. After puberty, I grew more into my face and was considered pretty, if what others tell me are to be believed. That shut them up for awhile. And then I got hit with acne and in a year and half I went from having normal a
  10. You sound exactly like me. My best example, I have a hypertrophic scar on my cheek. It's from me burning a hole in my face trying to get rid of a zit quicker. I'll hate myself forever for that. are hypertrophic scars like raised little bumps? I have one that's been there forever and it's red. it makes me physically ill to look at it, so of course I must stare at it obsessively about 20 times a day :wall: I don't even know how I got it...I NEVER pick, so I guess if something's going t
  11. HI Kanmi, It was always wonderful looking at your gallery and it's too bad you took it down. But I can kind of understand. When I look at pictures of myself from a few years ago when my skin was so good (of course at the time I didn't know it and thought I had lousy skin), it just breaks my heart but I guess it's one of those things I will have to live with. It double sucks when I think that all the crap I went through was all preventable. Oh well.... Finally!!! a post that make
  12. yeah, friends who turn on you and use scarring against you as a tool are the hardest to deal with. I actually got used to strangers remarking on my scars or redness or what not. But if a friend did it to me, that would make me truly sad.
  13. hey guys, so I haven't posted for a while mostly because the posters I got to know acne.org with (lexy, sword, hopefulskin etc) aren't posting all that much either. But maybe if they see this post, they'll drop me a line! If anyone recalls, I had pretty bad discoloration and demarc line from rosacea and a super bad allergic reaction to some precription and otc acne meds. Ever since then I been on the gentle routing. It's been my gawd almost two years now, and to be honest my skin has done a 360
  14. well, like you say, it's just the "damn zoo". Why didn't you go check out the animals instead of hanging around? that's what I thought too....so I keep deciding that and came up with crap.
  15. you look like britney spears here (in her old days, not now...)
  16. i don't have kids but i believe this is the logic behind using bc for acne
  17. they don't have flawless skin. they actually look crappier than most ppl their age.
  18. through experience, being under the sun for anything past 20 minutes makes my face bright red, while the rest of me tans....But my face is obvously screwed up. you tanned on tane and retinoids? wow, i must say that is very....interesting
  19. i must say that sounds amazing. It looks like you lived all over the world. isn't nassau in the bahamas? Anyway, it certainly sounds like you enjoyed it, or I hope you did! So are you an artist? That makes two professional artists on acne.org I know of. I guess i'm one of those who are fascinated by poeple who make their living by art. Do you have a website where you show your art work? I don't know how much you'll like Asia though. All the places you being at are very developed, but large pa
  20. mainly rolling scars. Have boxscars on my jawline and dr.chu is treated those for me with tca cross. The more stubborn rolling scars are being treated with tca cross also. keeping my fingers crossed for good results. :pray: that sounds totally exciting, to have a job that would allow you to live overseas. may i ask what field your job is in? The only thing i can think of is consulting or military. You don't have to get specific if you feel uncomfy about it :D
  21. so you don't have to tweeze? Lucky! I have eyebrow hairs growing down to my eye, it's disgusting and impossible to pluck. Some actually grow right up to the lash line and pretend to be eye lashes when my eyes are open, so I guess it's not all bad I seen snippets of your face you posted and you have really pretty features. Unless you're hiding a third eye behind all those black bands .....
  22. pfff: don't worry, ALOT of asians have crappy skin. it's a myth asian women have perfect poreless skin. Some do, but alot don't. I for one never had perfect poreless skin, even when I was young and my skin was "good". And there are a bunch like me, I ain't that special :D As for chubby cheeks, you ahve no idea how many times I wished I had cheek bones "sharp enough to cut ice". yeah, i guess the grass is always greener on the other side. And right now, having flat cheeks and cheek bones ar
  23. i don't know how cute my chubby cheeks are, but they can easily look puffy with just a little water retention :evil: And believe me, scars do not look better on chubby cheeks. Having fat cheeks is not really the same as a fat injection or filler. The skin unfortunately does not work like a balloon. On the other hand, having fillers or fat injection into a particular scar won't puff up the cheeks in general. you mentioned you were moving to an Asian country on some other thread. (Was
  24. kind of off topic, but how are you doing your eye brows? They look amazing! mine are like balding caterpillars
  25. if your scarring is SEVERE then there are options, invasive procedures.... if your scarring is minor or moderate then it is better to leave well enough alone and most ppl do not notice minor-moderate ice pick scars anyway. if they do, then you better find some new friends. I'm bitter too for other reasons. But why waste a whole thread inflicting my bitterness on others? I suggest you post a pic and get some advice. yes, you'll get some bullshit telling you about rose water or tazorac o
