  1. I just apply it with my fingers and do it real quick before it drips off. After that I apply emu oil. There's a forum at http://healthyskin.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/frm/f/7270023352 that you should check out if you haven't already. It'll probably answer most questions you have about copper peptides/ cp serum. :]
  2. retin-a, mild exfoliation, glycolic acid
  3. Why are you posting in the scar forum? Do you have any indented scars or just red marks? If it's red marks I think you'd get answers from the red marks forum.
  4. Maybe you should proceed with injections/fillers, looks like your scars might respond well to such treatment. They don't look bad 4/10 and they're not that deep considering that they probably look even less deep in normal lighting. I'd look up tca cross and needling before fraxel. You get about the same results but with less downtime and it won't put a dent in your wallet. Fraxel runs on average for about 1k per treatment I think. You need at least 5 treatments for any noticeable results.
  5. You look like you only haev a few red marks. Okay so I've done a TCA peel before, did it myself but it was mild like 12% and it made my skin even darker. It didn't help my red marks and was just too harsh for my skin. If you've never used any type of acid before maybe you should start with glycolic acid.
  6. No. I don't think you should try 25% TCA without trying something milder first like lactic acid or glycolic acid. Will post more later g2g
  7. It looks like you only have a few icepicks...and the right side is even more mild. Since they seem isolated on certain areas of your cheeks maybe you could try needling or tca cross the individual scars. Microdermabrasion does nothing for icepick and most indented scars but it could help with light discolorations and blotchiness
  8. Oh yeah I'm always angry now. I wear a constant frown 24/7
  9. Try a low percentage glycolic peel and work your way up after your skin's built up tolerance. Um..heard apple cider vinegar works well for red marks. You can apply it topically or take it orally. There's a really informative thread about it here somewhere..good luck!
  10. If it's not as red as it was two years ago then it's fading..at least you know it'll go away maybe not overnight but I've had mine for like 4 years and they haven't faded much if at all sigh
  11. There are several Obagi products you shouldn't use if you're nursing or pregnant...Don't remember which ones they are. I used the whole system for 6 months and my skin is kind of worse off now than it was before. I don't think it's worth it. But maybe it'll work for you! heh
  12. Using glycolic acid gave my skin a really weird skin texture. Kind of like a burnt waxy type look. Did anyone else experience this or is it just me
  13. You have really nice skin!!! The only thing I'd recommend for you is retin-a to treat the enlarged pores
  14. Hmm yeah icepicks are hard to remove. I used tca on some of them and now they're not as deep though not 100% even with the surrounding skin. The hyper pigmentation stayed for quite a while though..
