When you do finally decide to do a treatment make sure you have them take a picture before each one, get a copy of those pictures before you leave the office that day. 4.

  4. I tried taking some pics with my web cam but they don't really show what is going on, I talked to my primary care physician and she sees me once a month because of the car accident I was in. She said it looks like things are healing, meaning that the pinkness that was under my skin is surfacing - those areas of pink that look like they were manipulated by the laser seem to be blending in with the white spots, it my be because the pinkness which was a lot redder when I posted this is raised.

  6. I had a few rolling scars on the right side of my face that I wanted to get rid of, I did not have acne. I had an infection of the beard at the time... I asked the doctor if there was any risk that this might complicate matters - He said no I asked the doctor if it could possibly make things worse - He said no I went for 4 smoothbeam sessions without any complications.

  7. I am just gonna deal with them, as soon as the pink is all gone - I got road rash and a subsequent infection - this was a DEEP infection that is in the process of growing out so it looks quite a bit like acne. My experience with Smoothbeam has been iffy at best. I think I got some really really white spots on my face but I am not even sure if that is because the pink is growing out... Or if I am gonna have a really nice horror story to share Well the way I look at it now is skip all the laser

  12. You are a real person life has it's challenges, having some scarring or acne doesn't make you any less of a person then if you had perfect skin. Everyone has there challenges and issues. It is how you deal with them. Don't let it get you down to the point where you feel less like a "real person" then anyone else. Focus in on your qualities. Make a pro / con list.

  18. One of the reasons I started this post was for everyone to see that just because you have some scars doesn't mean you can't have a life.
