  1. BUMP I have raised scars all over chest, has anyone had ANY success with removing/lessening hypertrophics??
  2. Altagirl, where do you get your Emu Oil and what brand/type is it? ^^bump
  3. So i'm getting off of Accutane soon, and I have some pretty gnarly red marks and scars on my chest. On my face I don't have any scars or marks, which is great. Now on the FAQ in the Accutane section it said to not have things like dermabrasion done until six months after Tane is completed. I'm assuming that the six months is usually for scars on the face, and that scars on the chest/body are on thicker skin, so the six months should be reduced somewhat, right? If anybody has any insight on thi

  5. Which one are you looking at? http://shop.paulaschoice.com/product/eight...-aha-exfoliants That's the one I found and it says 17.95 for 4 oz...
  6. So I've read that AHA products are not only good for helping acne but also red marks and scars. I saw that the Paula's Choice AHA is 18 bucks for 4 ounces...that's nuts! Anybody know anything that is more reasonable and contains the same stuff?
  7. Firstly, I'd just like to say that I am so glad that this website exists. I don't know too many people (any, actually) who have dealt with the kind of acne I've had to deal with for years. And when I come here, I feel at least a little bonded to you guys, who have been going through the same thing. We have to suffer just to get normal skin, and it sucks. But at least we're not alone in our struggle, right? Anyways, I'm exactly 2 weeks into my tane treatment. So far, my face has been peelin' an
  8. I want to do a liver flush, but I have recently been put on accutane about 2 weeks ago. I know that accutane puts some strain on your liver, so would a liver flush make that worse?

  10. Okay, I will definitely try and use more olive oil. Thanks for your replies, guys, but what is really bugging me is how my chest and neck acne are at their worst ever, and my face is clearing up completely...has anyone ever experienced this?
  11. Okay, well to give you some background: I started getting bad acne on my face, chest, back, and neck about 2 or so years ago. Went to a dermatologist, he prescribed me Tetracycline and Retin-A. Used these for a year and half and they worked well, got me clear. Then, about six months ago, my acne started to come back, regardless of my medication and topical use. Went to the derm again, he switched my meds from Tetracycline to Minocycline. This did not help, and the acne got worse. Went back to
  12. Why is cutting out fats a bad idea? I thought that eating too much saturated fats and oils and such can cause/aggravate acne? I'll say that I've mainly been eating like a vegetarian these past couple weeks. LOTS of salads and veggies, and occasionally some chicken or a sandwich or something.
