  1. that was a good one coughdrop, you new yorkers are a slick bunch if i did vote for bush and what? *MOD EDIT* DO NOT CALL PEOPLE NAMES! and i never said vanity do not exist, i even said vanity is in our unconscience, do you know what that means? western society use vanity for profit. do those african tribes women use vanity to profit from the masses? you idiot. capitalism takes vanity and goes to town with it. foot binding in asia was sign of beauty, but was it marketed on a mass scale f
  2. coughdrop let me ask you this... which world powers places heavy emphasis on vanity? im sure its not the third world countries. or the communist regimes. so carefully think to yourself, without western capitalist influence, would vanity really exist? i know the commercial's targeting teenagers, a monkey can figure that out. what im saying is that ... WHY IS VANITY SUCH A BIG ISSUE?
  3. this applies to western society because its obvious they are dominating the world. From developing countries in Asia to other third world countries. for instance Shanghai ten years ago did not have commercial for acne or anything of the sort. in 2006 i went back and acne commercials are flooding the airwaves, making acne a horrific disaster. Why? western society have been influencing Shanghai for years now and its a gold mine, especially acne, the treatment of acne is a goldmine. psychological
  4. Obviously people are misunderstanding this topic, the end question to this is... WHY IS VANITY SUCH A BIG ISSUE? other than the obvious fact that you want to look good. why do you want to look good? why arent you able to feel good without looking good? (my answer is Western ideology, Edward Bernay, using psychoanalysis to influence public opinion to promote product sales, and by promoting vanity, they are able to promote profit. a perfect capitalist western society) this isnt bashing western cu
  5. try not to have any carbs including sweets around dinner or for dinner before you sleep. your body takes longer to break those down while you sleep
  6. how many times did you needle each scar? because when i did self needling (which made some improvements) i went crack and it looked alot more red than that.
  7. anyone know of any doctors that perform saline injections in nyc or close to NY other than cali?
  8. ive read that emu oil can help any topical penetrate your skin better. so i was wondering what about using emu oil, wait 20 minutes then apply tazorac or any other retinoids. wouldnt that get the acne and hit it at its source? i know that this may cause further irritation but your skin can get accustomed to it, and i think this can help you get the full benefits of retinoids. also this should be a good idea for light scars. and rednessand because the emu oil helps the retinoid penerate the skin

  11. just a update. 2 month since my first needling i've done it twive with a month in between. and i have to say the scars are filling in. but my only gripe with it is the redness it leaves behind that takes a month and more to fade. but i guess i'll take a little redness after a month than indents in my face. also have anyoen tried needling with 28G needles rather than 30G? its finer so is that better?
  12. look up...lancet 30G needles. at places like drugstore.com or whatevers. they should be like 14 bucks for 200. around that price range. anything more is a rip off. whatever part you needle should scab and swell up and turn really red for about close to a week. though you can hardly see the scab because its so tiny, but they are there. and after that the redness fades slowly. o yea dont overwash the area you have needles. and in using too much pressure or doing any type of exfoliation after nee
  13. i gotta say i have needles my scars twice, no less than 1 month apart, just 3 particular ones to have a comparison with the others. and i have to say that they are filling in and no its not swelling. so for those that are curious should try needling. i did self needling wiht 30G needles, jackhammer style to cover each surface of the scar. use neosporin for a few days and emu oil. after scab falls off i use tazorac .05%. i think everyone should try it on one of your scars and see if its any goo
  14. honestly fraxel costs too much. for the price of fraxel you can get a sick tattoo on your back and that would take car of those scars. and im being serious people use tattoos to cover up scars of all sorts, and tattoos are 100% coverup, and not just 20-50% better that you would get with laser or other treaments.
  15. that is the same peron you can tell by his brown mole. and it looks better because of the better lighting, the caption even says under the picture.
  16. day 2, area has scabbed, i can see a indent but hopefully it will fill in. also if anyone have any idea what the procedure was due tell. my doc seems to be too busy to answer any freaking questions.
  17. my derm is a *** but he gets the job done. cuz he just walks into the room looks at it for a minute or two, then goes through with the procedure, throw me some ointment and im off paying the bill, all in all took 10 minutes plus the waiting. basically he used a tool (a thin rod connected to a machine) that emits a hissing sound once he pressed it against my overdue pimple, he told me it would hurt and yes it did, i dunno if it burned the zit off but i felt a burning sensation, so im assuming. a
  18. i had needling done once a month for the past two month and i have to say that it does help a bit. yea i would like to know anyone out there that have done needling for over a year and have improvements?
  19. nevermind i just went to the derm, he said it was a overdue pimple that took on a life of its own. and those are his words. basically he burned the sucker off and said tomorrow it will be fine. if i knew what he was going to do i would of saved 90 bucks and burned the sucker off myself.
  20. i have a hypertropic acne scar, i think, because i had a zit on that spot with a white head which i pooped a month ago, and not the spot is still a bit bumpy and red. i applied retin-a micro on it every night even tried microdermabrasion, but its still there, so im thinking its a hypertropic scar. any suggestions to get rid of hypertropic scars? i heard cortisone injections are best which im hoping to get from my derm.
  21. i agree with the person above, but one way fraxel makes thigns better though i have to agree, is that it makes your skin tone more even, and it lightens any red or other color marks. these were the same pictures that made me not want to perform fraxel. i mean a few thoughsand just to lighten my skin tone and even thigsn out?
