  1. Hey guys, So I just got this sample peel in the mail ( i will do a spot test first!). Its not TCA, its like, 40% glycolic and 30% lactic, along with some other low percentages of skin healing ingredients. I did DIY microneedling a few days ago, nothing too crazy, 1.5 stamp on a couple deeper scars and 1.0 on the rest of my cheek. I did use tea tree oil after to avoid any breakouts, it caused my skin to get really dry/flakey, as tea tree oil usually does for me. Anyway, how soon can i do a peel

    @91babyThats what i noticed in your pics right away as well, not only is the scarring greatly improved, your skin overall looks much smoother! Thanks for all the info and tips, im definitely going to give it a shot and look back on these steps when it comes in the mail. I did some research after reading your post, and after ordering glycolic acid, i found this type of peel that is supposed to be better than using glycolic acid. Its called the 'fade' peel. Its a combination of glycolic acid 30%

    @91baby Woohoo, finally, an update! Girllll, theres definitely a noticeable improvement! Even better than i was expecting from that type of peel! They look much softer, and filled in.. if thats how they look in the worst lighting, you must be feeling pretty good in normal lighting! Ive already started looking up 50% peels on amazon now, haha. I know what you mean about bathroom lighting and window reflections, its the worst..i always check them to see how bad my skin is today, because my scarrin

    @91babyI have checked this post so many times for updates over the last several months! You and i have similar scarring and id love to know more about your experience with the glycolic acid peels! What is the peeling experience like? It sounds like its not as extreme as TCA? Do you experience hyper-pigmentation? Is there an actual peeling process?Breakouts? Enlarged pores? I remember years ago ( before my scarring, i just had some bad skin texture that i thought was the end of the world lol) i s
  5. Just wanted to post an update : ) I posted back in June about my skin plumping/looking slightly better after a month on Spiro. Right after this, i decided to try microneedling for the first time in 3+ years. I bought a 1.0 roller for the entire face and 1.5 small derma stamp for the deeper scars. I thought i would share what i experienced and the results so far as i think it has visibly improved a little bit! I also did a test of TCA on two ice pic scars and i think the edges did smooth out a
  6. @noa27 its typically used for other conditions, but its also acts as a roadblock for androgen hormones in your body by preventing them from overstimulating the skin's oil glands =)
  7. @beautifulambition Thank you for responding, i really appreciate you always taking the time, as you do for everyone. here. So, yeah, there was definitely some unexplained swelling in these photos that have since gone down ( so sad!), causing some scars to reappear, im still a bit mystified by it, seems like if it was the spiro it would stay plump? Im not sure... I did a test spot of TCA on two tiny ice pic scars after this post, just to see how my skin would respond as they are already fairl
  8. Ive been on here for quite some time, so i think most should know im not trolling lol Its really explainable. Im mystified by it, I started taking spironolactone 1 month ago, and almost all of my rolling/shallow scars are gone or difficult to find. I have heard of spironolactone improving skin texture significantly, however i cant find any info on it plumping the skin/making it swell? Initially i thought, oh, im having another good skin day, or it was in my head... but there is no denying it,

    How can I fix these scars?

    i agree with dazzed i think there is potential for really good results with this type of scarring. If they can lift the depression in the skin it should look pretty level even without resurfacing treatments. Almost all of my most noticeable scarring is like this as well. I wish i could get subcision and filler right now. Please keep us updated, id love to see your results!

    What scars do I have, and how should I proceed?

    This is very similar to my scarring, only i think i have more textural issues and a few ice pick scars along with it, . If you get filler id love to see the results. Im hoping my acne will be under control within 3 months so i can try filler as well. Good luck!

    @thepwhisp Awesome! Thank you so much for taking the time to send that! Im definitely going to try it, tea tree oil has always helped with my acne so maybe combined with the peroxide itll make a difference. I think my acne is mostly hormonal. I just went on spironolact and antibiotics my guess is high levels of testosterone but i also need something to clear up all the clogged pores as well. Maybe this will do the job. Glad you figured out what works for you! Thats half the battle. Thanks again!

    @totalbeautyaddict i made a post very similar to this a month or two ago. I definitely have days or even weeks like this, honestly, the best thing in my opinion is to avoid looking at yourself in bad lighting's if and when possible. Only look at your reflection or place mirrors in areas that arent as harsh. Remind yourself that there are millions of people who dont even acknowledge it, you are your worst critic. I never cared when i saw someone had acne or scarring before i had it. Now i only st

    @Scarredtodepression Im so bad at the clean diet part lol. I work 14 hour days, its so hard to cook, ive tried simple diets like brown rice and brocolli as i can cook it in the office lol, but its just not enough calories, i lose so much weight. I think youre right though, the diet is extremely important.. lmao really? What causes that, do you know? By regulating hormones? Im only a B so i wouldnt complain with C's lol. Did you have any heart palpatations from doses that high? I heard thats an

    @Scarredtodepression Thanks for sharing all of that. Wish i had known i could use an online derm to get a script for spiro i wouldve tried it monthsss ago.. They faxed it over to a pharmacy along with antibiotics. Im really worried about the initial break out from it after reading reviews. I cant afford a cystic break out after what accutane did to my healing abilities. Did you break out at first? Any side effects?
