  1. How much Vitamin C (mg) do you guys take daily or at least recommend before/during/after treatment to help diminish scars? I've read here (merely from searching topics) that 1000-5000mg is common for skin renewal and healing. Is it necessary to consume that much, or potentially harmful in such high dosages?
  2. Hi all, how much Vitamin C is safe to take before/during/after collagen induced therapy, such as Fraxel? I recall reading that the recommended dosage per day (for a male in my age group) is something like 90mg for general health. However, alot of the people in the scar forums are advising between 1000-5000mg daily?
  3. I read about this some years ago. However, if this is the case, why do individuals make such a big fuss if they happen to step on a used syringe? Why do reports insist people don't share nail clippers, toothbrushes or razors in fear of contracting the virus?
  4. No one else would like to voice their concerns? Perhaps I'm just paranoid! I guess my enquiry is the same for whatever treatment one opts for (whether it be for scarring or not) at any surgery, clinic or hospital - hence no one really thinks or worries about it.

    MSM

    I was thinking more for Fraxel treatment, during and after, to help induce collagen formation. Do any Fraxellers here take MSM at all?
  6. Sorry for bumping this thread. Does anyone think sleeping heavily one one's treated areas (tossing, turning etc associated with a restless sleep for example) could impede collagen formation? While I still haven't had any treatment, I've always felt that this was some way harming my face (somethimes I'd wake up with dry skin because of my skin rubbing or squashed on the pillow for hours on end) much like the potential to promote wrinkles and sagging skin etc by sleeping such way. What do you all
  7. Thanks all who replied. My qestion re. a computer monitor came from a conversation elsewhere whether it emits any radiation twhich could potentially harm or damage skin. While it's unlikey any radiation (if present, I guess) will leak from modern day monitors, it's still on my mind anyway. Another thing I just thought about was cool air or long stints in freezing or cold weather, where you face is exposed?
  8. Doesn't the roller tip (or tip in general) directly touch the skin though? I've heard that Fraxel in some areas are in demand that a patient might follow another. What happens to that tip then, or any part of the machine that was touched during one's teatment (ie. blood from, say, numbing injections making contact with the tip or handling the bottle of blue dye, cord/handle/switches used to operate it or something).
  9. Just in response, does anyone know why Dr Goodman doesn't anaesthetize patients with injections if they experience discomfort?

    MSM

    Are all MSM products essentially the same? For example, after searching furiously, none of the Chemists in my area stock any MSM products describing good health and collagen production for skin etc, rather describing the benefits of reducing inflammation, increasing circulation and alleviating arthritis etc. Should the product clearly specify its benefits, or doesn't it matter? Thanks all.
  11. Does Vit A contain retinoids/retinoic acid? I recall reading here that retinoic acid applied to skin immediately after or before Fraxel is not not recommended. I could be wrong though.
  12. For those undergoing Fraxel SR1500, is treatment uncomfortable with only the numbing cream applied?
  13. Are all MSM products essentially the same? For example, after searching furiously, none of the Chemists in my area stock any MSM products describing good health and collagen production for skin etc, rather describing the benefits of reducing inflammation, increasing circulation and alleviating arthritis etc. Should the product clearly specify its benefits, or doesn't it matter? Thanks all.
  14. When undergoing such procedures to induce collagen, is it possible to damage or harm skin rejuvination/repair during and/or after treatment? Of course, heavy exposure to UV light and smoking is a no-brainer, but can simple things like consumption of alcohol (on occassion only), exposure to heat (a heater or fireplace for instance), prolonged exposure to a computer monitor, or even stress and a late night now and then potentially inibit the formation and growth of collagen?
  15. Pardon my ignorance, but if I take Ascorbic Acid supplements, I'm basically taking Vitamin C right?
