  1. How long did your Radiesse last? I'd be even happy with 6 months. I don't mind getting it done like twice a year. If you don't mind me asking what type of scars did you get filled? And when you say they plumped up, were they pretty much level with the surrounding skin? Hope your laser and fat grafting went well. Sounds like you had quite the work up done! Radiesse lasts 12-18 months for me, but blahblah92 makes a valid point about it being a harsh filler. It is made with tiny bone fragments

  4. It could take many months for the redness to fade and the swelling to go down. My cheeks look like Aunt Sally in Worzel Gummidge and nothing is covering them. I look ridiculous and am confined to the house. My skin texture was bad enough before, but looks exactly like a chocolate-less naked Malteser now. It's a mass of holes.........like a sponge. Am so hoping that someone will respond and say this is quite normal and my skin will transform into something that looks at least semi human.
  5. I've had both radiesse and juvederm voluma and have had great results. My radiesse practitioner was a wizard when it came to fillers, and having deep crater like holes and scars in my cheeks, she managed to plump them out nicely. Sadly, it doesn't last I have recently had full ablative erbium yag lasering, stem cells and fat grafting. My profile pic says it all, lol. I actually went the full hog and had a facelift done too........as well as my eyes. I figured...........and it makes sense -
  6. Thanking you all for your kind words I am now 14 days post op. I still look like Pikachu. The left cheek is beginning to settle a wee bit, but my right cheek is still circled with demarcation and am beginning to feel concerned. I am still very swollen and bruised. I attempted to wear camo makeup at day 12, but it was a big disaster as it only highlighted my Malteser skin. Meh!!! Malteser skin still!!!! Am hoping that it's just the swelling that is making my pores to resemble orange peel now
  7. Lycogel Breathable camouflage foundation is fantastic, especially if you need to conceal any flaws. It isn't cakey or heavy and is gel based, so lets your skin breathe. I have used this for years to cover a multitude of sins. It's best to moisturise your skin first and although it can be worn alone, I find it lasts a lot better with a fine dusting of powder. It's very expensive, but worth it. Here is the product description from Amazon - Lycogel Breathable Camouflage Foundation is a uni
  8. Exactly!! Which is why I am raving about this stuff. From what I'm led to believe, it is French. The French are renown for some amazing skin products and it has taken many years to actually learn this. It really does work wonders. Recently, I have tried a few French products and have been impressed. Cicalfate by Avene is another gem. Zinc based...............and has rave reviews. Have tried it and is a staple in my zit SOS kit, but doesn't quite cut the mustard like Kerium DS does. I tried the
  9. If you PM me, I shall tell you my surgeon's name. I'm in the UK though, so don't know if this will help you. Thank you Mr Tong Hope is all we have,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,right? Acne is a curse. Isn't is ironic that curse is an anagram of cures? Acne is a big industry for the pharma giants. I have always been convinced that the cure is known..................but they keep it from us. It makes me mad to see so many products that I know are bad for us, marketed. And I know, I have fallen into
  10. Hi Green Gables and thank you for your input, I'm glad you found some success with your light. The one I used was in direct contact with the skin and has red light to stimulate collagen, blue light to kill acne bacteria and green light to counter redness. Spironolactone I shall return to.............. I tried betaine HCL in the past with no success. I avoid silicones wherever possible. Now, sprironolactone is, as you say, an anti-androgen drug. The name is very familiar and if me
  11. I totally agree!!! I would give my right arm to have skin that looks so good. Have you considered trying Dermaroller or a stamp? Either one would probably give good results.
  12. Hi there wfac, I'm not sure if the celution machine was used or not, though am guessing it likely was. The stem cell treatment was connected to the fat grafting.............and my surgeon is an apparent expert in this field and one of the top surgeons in the UK. He had full understanding of all of my issues before commencing any procedure and as I am only 4 days post op, I haven't had a chance to fully discuss what he actually did, as I was off planet after the op. Lala Land.............
  13. No one???? Not anyone??? Well, I am day 4 post op. Have had 3 passes of er:yag in mid cheeks, 2 passes beyond that.........phasing into one pass on the outer rim. I now look like Pikachu. The weeping and crusting has been yucky.............but am holding up hope. I went the whole hog and had my upper blephs done, brow lift, lower facelift/neck lift and fat grafting. Am keeping a personal photo diary for future reference. I also had stem cell treatment. I had 2 MASSIVE craters on my
  14. I suffered with acne for over 30 years and tried every possible remedy with no results except extreme skin devastation, then developed seb derm. Again I tried lotion after potion, after diet, after treatment, with no success. Then I discovered a hand held LED light gizmo that worked wonders.............(see my other posts). Although this cleared me up like 80% or more, I still had some blocked pores, redness, flaky patches and scaly bits. Recent research led me to a cream by La Roche Posay c
  15. Hi all, Has any seb derm sufferers ever had laser resurfacing? If so, how did the healing process go and what was the outcome like? I am booked for an erbium yag laser resurfacing soon. Have suffered with acne since I was 12..............am 50 now. I also took severe chickenpox when I was 12 which left a lot of pockmarks on my cheeks and jawline. The acne has left me with lots of scars too as well as box and rolling scars. Then, after decades of trying every treatment available, I develo
