  1. people have had success with dermarolling for minor black heads, obviously don't dermaroll an active cyst, but if it's like a hardened bump under the skin, dermarolling helps.... here's a quote from a pubmed journal: " Very good results have been obtained after microneedling of flourishing acne. Acne is triggered by androgens that stimulate increased proliferation of keratinocytes that block the ducts of sebaceous glands. After one or two treatments the hyper proliferation of keratinocytes may
  2. la toleriane fluide la roche posay...it's a little pricey but it works...read people's personal testimonials on reddit.
  3. https://www.reddit.com/r/Futurology/comments/6g8313/through_for_the_generation_of_fully_functional/ has anybody seen this? This isn't just some bullshit stem cell shit again, it looks like they've actually managed to create full thickness skin. Human trials are starting later this year and apparently this will hit the markets next year? Anybody who knows more about this could u help make sense of this?
  4. I usually put on sunscreen at the beginning of the day and don't reapply as I'm usually inside for most of the day. Put it on, if you're paranoid reapply after 2 hours, but if you're going out when the sun is setting, you should prob be fine with just one application. Like I said, if you're paranoid, reapply.

  5. holy sweet jesus, ya it is a steroid so that makes sense. I will have to talk abut my derm about 5fu/cortisone. Have you considered PDL for discoloration? I read a pub med article on how pdl+TAC+5fu was really effective. Maybe you can benefit from this
  6. hi! how long have you had the scars? It looks like yours are pretty fresh and most likely will go away as your skin recovers over time. They don't look like keloids/thick hypetrophic scarring so I don't think you would qualify for steroid injections.
  7. This is true. You could try dermarolling/microneedling or a little tca cross. But honestly dude you look fine, i wouldn't do something crazy
  8. The flattened ones look pretty good, I hope mine can look like that after a few more shots. My derm is giving me only 5mg/ml though >.< which is hella low. Should I insist on a higher dosage?
  9. hey brother, the one on your right shoulder is looking really good. I don't think these are true keloids. True keloids don't really respond to injections and as you know they're huge and tumorous looking, usually requiring excisions and radiation therapy. For facial cysts, cortisone injections actually kill the cysts while they're active and then you already know they will flatten scarring. Idk about you, but I personally only got raised scarring on my jawline because I picked at the dam thin
  10. looks good brotha. I think it suits you, makes your face look more rugged and less pre-pubescent
