  1. That is so interesting. I don't even know where some of the scars came from but I lost a lot of weight rapidly after my pregnancy and there they were! Some are new, from cysts but I only got like one at a time for about six months. But some are old and I wonder if they were there all along and the weight loss/aging/giving all my vitamins to my baby helped them to show. Sorry to bug you, but I think I will take your advice and just do Tca. I am also interested in microneedling. Do you find t
  2. Thank you! I had a feeling that a combination of treatments should be favorable to just one laser. And I am afraid the c02re might be too harsh with unknown results.

  6. Hi everyone, long time lurker here. I've never had great skin, and am prone to cystic acne because of hormones. During my last pregnancy I got a cyst on my cheek that didn't go away. When it did it left an awful textured scar, the kind that looks awful under harsh lighting because of the edges. So, I went to a PS to excise the area (and two pitted scars next to the cyst scar) I hope documenting my journey will be helpful to others. I'm one week post-op now. I'm a bit concerned that the middle of
