  1. I had problems with the Acne.org moisturiser so I've been using "Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea". It's sold in Boots but it's quite pricey (£11). I've found it to be the most effective though in dealing with the dryness from the BP.
  2. Okay, yay! I had my first eDermastamp treatment yesterday and I loved it! My face was thoroughly cleaned and numbed for about 20 mins (I tend to go numb very quickly, some people may need up to 40 mins with the cream on). The eDermastamp is a little more time consuming than the Dermaroller as the head of the machine is very small. Since I travel a long way for my treatments we decided to do my full face rather than just my scarring. A hyaluronic acid serum is used to lubricate the needle heads
  3. Yes, people definitely notice my scars and the reactions I get from people are not good.
  4. thereisalwayshope - I hadn't read your thread for a while so had a look through just now. You have come such a long way with your skin and are looking great! so pleased for you. You deserve it as you seem such a lovely, kind person. Cheered me up! They should make you a moderator on this site.
  5. Quirky Fox - Thanks for your response. Please keep us posted on how you get on with the e-dermastamp!
  6. Fatalbert911 - I just wanted to say I agree with a lot of the points you make. Severe acne (and scarring) is a horrible affliction. It's something I have lived with for over 25 years and it can have an enormous impact on how we live our life. As a long time sufferer, I agree it can eventually wear you down and make you feel angry and resentful. However, I think this particular thread just highlights the fact that each individual's experience of acne is different and no one can really generalise
  7. Has anyone had an e-dermastamp treatment for their acne scars? I was thinking of trying this out for the rolling and boxcar scars on my chin but would like to know if there is anyone out there who has tried it. If so, did you find it more effective than the regular dermastamp treatment? Thanks.
  8. I'm nearly 38 and have had acne since I was 13. Although, it did have a negative effect on my teenage years, I feel it was more 'acceptable' to others then as teenagers are expected to get at least some acne. However, I thought it was something I would eventually outgrow. Unfortunately I didn't. I find it really embarrassing that everyone can see i still have acne in my late 30's (and the many scars I have on my chin which people can't seem to take their eyes off.....). I think while I have
  9. This happens to me on a daily basis. I have pretty bad acne scarring on my chin and whenever I speak to people they not only don't make eye contact with me; but they also start obsessively rubbing or stroking their own chin. It makes me feel very uncomfortable. Makes trying to have a conversation with someone an unpleasant experience.
  10. Obviously your acne wasn't all that "severe" if you responded to a topical regimen as severe acne is impervious to topical products and forms under neath the skin where creams and gels can't "get to". I swear some people exaggerate the severity of their acne on this forum, as they all claim to be responsive to "the regimen". Truly cystic acne doesn't get better despite whatever you put on your face to try to treat it, it is incorrigible. Normally I wouldn't lower myself to respond to the likes
  11. I had Accutane prescribed to me about 10 years ago. Like you I thought it was a miracle drug that would finally end the misery that acne causes. My skin was clear for the first couple of months and then slowly but surely the acne started to creep back. I was really distraught as I had been told by the Dermatologist that Accutane was a 'cure'. Maybe for some people it is but it definitely wasn't for me. I went back to my doctor and told her my acne had come back but all she would prescribe was an
  12. In my case, it tends to be the acne scarring on my chin that people stare at when I am talking to them. For some reason, people always put their hand up over their own chin and start obsessively stroking it whenever I speak to them. It's a really horrible feeling and makes me not want to interact with people at all. The thing is most of us don't have any real choice in the matter - we need to interact with others to some degree in order to get by in this life and earn a living. I too am surroun
  13. The same thing happened to me and it most definitely was the moisturiser. The old formula moisturiser worked great for me but for some reason I seem to have a big problem with the licochalcone in the current one. Try a different moisturiser and see if it helps.
  14. I previously used Panoxyl gel and it was okay to spot treat with, but when I tried using the amount you are supposed to use on the acne.org regimen it practically burned the skin off my face. Pretty brutal stuff if used in large quantities - well, it was in my case anyway.
  15. There is one thing I just remembered that I feel I should point out just in case it may be causing a problem with you guys. When I started on the regimen a few years ago using acne.org moisturiser, the ingredients were slightly different from the one Dan sells now. This may have nothing to do with the problem you are experiencing, but in my case I absolutely cannot cope with his new moisturiser. I bought the 16oz bottle last year and used it one time only and I had an awful reaction to it. Ma
