  1. Trader Joes or Whole Foods (pretty much any health food store).
  2. I have been using tea tree oil for over a year and I love it. Nothing has been able to help my acne like this product. Don't put the tea tree oil directly on the skin by itself. Mix a small amount with your cleanser.
  3. I get Restylane injections and feel that they make a difference in my skin. It doesn't last very long ,maybe 3 months. But I rather do that than live with the scarring.
  4. I went on two consults re: this very matter. I wanted to have a mini-facelift re: my rolling scars. I was 27 or 28 at the time. Both doctors said no and that I was too young. They wouldn't touch my face. However, one did mention fat injections which I am considering.
  5. Cubsfan, I am sorry to hear that. I can't believe that the lumps are still there even after 2 years. Lbeedo, Great name. ha ha. I had no problems re: my restylane. The only disappointing thing to me was that it did not last. Good luck. Let me know if you have any questions. Take care!
  6. Well I just ordered the TCA Cross and H/A. I am excited to try this. I will keep everyone posted.
  7. I'm in L.A. too. I wouldn't mind meeting up.
  8. Billyboy, RE: Punch floats w/Dr. Y. I wonder why some of your scars improved while others worsened.
  9. I had about 4 or 5 Cool Touch treatments. I felt it was a waste of money.
  10. My punch floats by Dr. Y. turned out really well. Some of the scars are still there but they were greatly improved. They no longer have that sharp look. I was going to have dermabrasion a few months after that but I decided not to after hearing about all the negative outcomes on those with dark complexions. I would like to have more punch floats done by Dr Y. Let me say, that prior to going to Dr. Y. I had punch excision on one of my scars by another doctor. It was waste of money. It
  11. I had punch floats with Dr. Y. in March 2005 and I think it was the best thing I ever did for my ice pick scars. I want to go back in March/April 2006 to have more done. One scar was pretty deep that I need to have it punch floated again. By the way, I did not have dermabrasion or any other type of resurfacing procedure. You can't even see the punch float marks.
  12. I asked a surgeon about this and he would not do it. He said I was too young (I was 28 at the time) and he said he wouldn't touch my face.
  13. "Punch floats" is the best procedure I have ever done for my ice picks. I think you should do it. By the way, I can't even see the punch float marks. I healed pretty good. I am going to go back to Dr Y. next year to have more punch floats.
  14. No, I did not have any procedure to smooth them over. I healed pretty good and I can not even tell where the punch floats were done. I have about 2 ice pick scars that were pretty deep so I want to go back and have them done again. They filled in pretty good but they are still there. There might be other scars that I want Dr Y. to do. In my opinion, punch floats are one of the best procedures out there for ice pick scars.
