  1. I’m thinking about getting on Accutane, wether my Dr. prescribes it to me or not I I can get it it. Anyway I’m concerned about the initial break out period. Do you have to have one. Sometimes I could go months without acne and then a huge cyst pops up or a couple of white heads. The cysts are more of a concer because they leave scars. This has been going on the last 3 years and even though I don’t always have acne I know eventually a cyst will pop up. I have tried all of the
  2. I probably look in the mirror about thirty times a day. I really don't have acne just scars, and I usually just look to see how bad/worse they look in different lighting. I own about 10 mirrors of different shapes and sizes. It's so funny, when I had normall looking skin I rarely looked in the miror. I'm probably going to get in an accident one day because I'm always looking in different mirrors when I'm driving.. This sucks.
  3. Where do you purchas the 6% TCA at , does Mendy hae a website . Thanks
  4. I'm black i'm about the complextion of kobe bryant and i have had a few . I have a few more to go. I havent really had a problem yet with hyperpigmentation but I 've only done it on low levels so far. Regardles, I would trade hyper for scars any day. I think th results have been minimal so far but I have a few more to go.
  5. I have a lot of very minor scarring, which is not very deep at all, but still looks bad. I was tryingto do a bunch of chemical peels over time to provide some improvement. I thinkg his is a better idea because it's very cheap and the risks are minimal. So if it doesn't work I lose 20 bucks, which is a lot better than throwing money away on micro -dermo or smooth beam.. My questions is Should my skin peel after doing a chemical peel? I know this probably sounds stupid but I've been using the 40
  6. I dont know what will work but I know microdermabrasion does absolutely nothing for acne scars. Please dont wast your money
  7. Where can I buy 100% TCA online
  8. How much did you pay for your dermabraasion from Dr Y, I'm curious because I'm actually from N.O and I'm tired of all these treatments that dont work
  9. I have an unopened 0.1% that I will give away for free. I don't like this stuff.
  10. I think you may be confusing micro-dermabrasion with dermabrasion. You will probably be able to get micr-dermabrasion done, but it will do little to decrease your scars, just your money. Dermabrasion will help but its expensive and could actually cause more problems. You do need to be off accutane for a year to get this done. I have been hearing alot about Smoothbeam, do a search on this board and i'm sure you'll find some information. You will also need to be off accutane for 1 year to get this
  11. I am black and I cannot use razors either. This is actually a disease called 'psedu barbicullus' or something like that. Seems like you need to stop using razorz too. Seems like the razor bumps are causing the majority of your problems. I use a product called Magic Shave. There are different types. The one I use is a paste, there is also one which you have to mix with water, but in my opinion that is too much work. Anway, all you do is put it on your face and leave it for 7-10 minutes, then sc
  12. Yeah I agree, If I had to choose 20 choose 20 years off my life for perfect skin I would do it. I do not know why I am cursed with this horrible disease. The weird thing is I had perfect skin up until, I was 26 years old. I did absolutely nothing to get it either. No special soaps, or medicine. I am now 28 years old and it has been an ongoing battle. For about the past 4 or 5 months I have been a recluse since my skin has been the worse. Another weird thing is also, now I have a job where appea
  13. Who knows what really causes acne. It works for him so good luck. Maybe its not the masterbation, it could be something mental.
