  1. yay! i have a consultation for sept. 18th. my doc charges $700 for full face and $400 for cheeks. he is in roanoke, va which is closer to me than some of the outrageosly expensive docs in dc. added bonus...i was reading an article on fraxel at this docs office and the aesthetician use to have cystic acne and has had fraxel done on herself. i think she will be very sympathetic to my cause.
  2. anyone know of a good clinic in charlottesville va that offers fraxel? perhaps UVA medical?
  3. i did some tca spot treatments 2days ago. i let it frost but i guess it went too far. it turned brownish and peel the very next day. now i have red sores on my face. has this ever happen to anyone? what did you do to expedite healing. it looks like i fell and scraped my chin. HELP.
  4. well, i have a slightly different situation. i am half chinese and half caucasion. any other "halfies" out there who have tried fraxel? the more research i do the better it sounds. my scarring is fairly shallow...derms classify them as "superficial". is there anyone out there with shallow scarring who is happy with their fraxel results? thanks.
  5. ditto. i tried the apeel correct on my chin...my skin is the worst its been in 8 years (just in the area where i tested it). i'm just praying my moment of weakness won't cause more scars. i have apeel correct, tca complex, and latte. someone please take them before i cause more damage.
  6. thanks. i'll give it one more week. if this junk on my face doesn't clear up then i'll ask my derm for accutanne.
  7. responding to your pm...i think your forehead looks great. i don't think i know enough about your type of scarring to comment. ...but keep your spirits up. there are a lot of very caring and informative people on this forum. you're in good hands.
  8. masterk, the co2 laser is what made me break out in the first place. i had it done to remove chicken pock scars. i would gladly have the chicken pock marks back instead of the hideous acne scars. things are a bit tense for me now cause i am breaking out (after trying apeel correct). its been years since zits have been this bad. i'm having flashbacks to 8 years ago when it got really bad and i'm terrified i will be left with more scars. i'm considering asking my derm to put me on accut
  9. U spend far too much time listening to people with moderate to severe acne scars bad mouth various procedures. Get off the message board and go to a doctor to speak about getting real treatments instead of just reading what the people on here say all the time. You really do know nothing don't you..... I have been told by both different docs i went to that i have "shallow" scarring and i have had 2 dermabrasions......yes 2!!!! one with the wire brush, and another very deep one with the diamo

  12. I would really have to explain the term "shallow scarring" If the scars are ONLY noticable in bright lighting then they are shallow. Anything noticable all the time under most any ighting condition would be moderate, and obviously anything after would mean major or severe. I had shallow scarring and some tiny ice picks. The ice picks were the only ones that were noticable except under bright lights when I would view my skin i could see lots of surface scarring. ALthough only noticable to me
  13. how did you find your doc? did you go to a plastic surgeon or a derm? i'll check out the fraxel but i'm inclined to do something non laser. thanks for the compliment. my self esteem has been so low lately. i hate dodging ugly lighting and avoiding eye contact. i just want to get to the point where i am comfortable in my own skin again.
  14. SHALLOW SCARS Any shallow scar can be removed with resurfacing of most any kind. if this is the case then how come nobody is posting any results? i have shallow scars...where are the docs who can fix it. i'm willing to travel to them. Shallow surface scars can be taken out with either a series of Fraxels if they are real shallow or dermabrasion/laser treatments. The resurfacing is for shallow surface scarring so if thats what u have then see a doctor about getting treatments. I hav
  15. I had the fraxel laser treatments done after having 12 excisions of small ice pick scars done first. To tell u the truth the Fraxel were just to finish everything up the excisions did all the work and fixed my face. I would say that my scars were on the very minor side of things, but I seriously couldnt live with having tiny holes at the top of my cheeks. The doctor didnt want to do the excisions on a few spots but I said that i wanted it done so they did it and it turned out great. There
