  1. I know that feel all too well man. 25 here and acne has stayed the same since 14. I have been told I have great facial features too and I also have some scarring but that's whatever. It doesn't detract that much and have even been told it makes me look rugged. I'm sure girls view your scars the same. Honestly for guys our age, I am realizing more and more that accutane is the only answer and everything else is just wasting our time. Just sucks that the best method is a poison. Creams, di
  2. I feel f*cking awful right now. I am 24 bloody years old and I still can't get rid of this! When I called my doctor (not my dermatologist) to get him to renew my Finacea prescription he questioned why I wanted it because "you're 24, you're too old for acne". Yeah, doc, I guess I'm just a miracle of nature. The worst thing is that I actually look really good. I have great facial features (apart from the scars which I've learned to live with) and girls love me. I've been travelling this summer in
  3. Are we supposed to feel better because other people suffer as well?
  4. By the way you phrased that sentenced I get the feeling that you don't really mean what you just wrote.
  5. Acne doesn't stop me from doing things but I hate being outside tanning because I look disgusting when I do. My whole face glows like a satellite and taking a swim makes it even worse.
  6. I'm feeling great. After struggling with acne for the past ten years I've finally hit a breakthrough! Not only do I have loads of zits, blackheads, red marks and scars even though I've tried every possible treatment but now, at age 23, my forehead is finally starting to break out! Yeah, it feels fucking great to be alive!
  7. Turmeric and milks makes me break out with small whiteheads. Not entirely sure if I got the same effect from using turmeric and water though.
  8. Yeah, I have the same problem. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Post-accu...54#entry2251054
  9. Thanks for your reply, and the same goes for Ciro. I've been thinking about Subcision and will look into it more after this.
  10. Thought I'd bump this with a couple of pictures. Not much has happend apart from the red marks gradually fading. Unfortunantely I also get new ones from time to time which you can see on the pics. I've lost weight since the original post and that in combination with shadows make my cheeks look very hollow. The pictures do exaggerate a bit though. As always I'm very grateful for any suggestions on how to improve my skin.
  11. WHAT: 1.) What size needles were/are you using? 1.5 mm on the dermaroller and a basic (long) diabetes syringe. 2.) What kind of scars were/are you treating? Indented scars. 3.) What topicals, if any, did/do you use before & after each treatment? Carbamide moisturizing cream. 4.) What vitamins/supplements, if any, did/do you take? None. 5.) What was/is your time interval between each treatment? Once every 3 weeks more or less. Single use with the syringe more often. 6.) What percentage (0-1
  12. Are you sure you weren't just basing your estimates when the microswelling was in effect? I usually look 50-80% improved the day after a needling session but that slowly subsides once the swelling goes down.
  13. It sure does. I didn't have a scar before accutane and after it I looked like this: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Post-accu...54#entry2251054
  14. How long till no one will be able to tell you've had anything done at all? I can roll in the morning and go out later the same day just lightly using a concealer to hide the red marks. Although I do suffer from acne related red marks which might make the roller marks blend in better than for a person with a completely normal skin tone. With a 1.5? That's insane. Do you roll quite thoroughly? Yes, with a 1.5. I do not know if I roll thoroughly or hard enough. I've asked about it on

  16. It takes about 24 hours for the red marks on my cheeks to fade away.
  17. I have similar scarring and I'm trying out dermarolling now. Did my first roll today though so I can't say if it works or not.
  18. I rolled for the first time today on my cheeks with a 1.5mm roller. It stung and there were a few small needleholes that let out some blood but other than that I just turned red. So I wonder if I perhaps didn't put enough pressure on it? How hard are you supposed to roll? Should the whole area bleed?
  19. In my experience your skin gets tighter if you sleep well but if you don't it starts sagging.
  20. I've read that you are supposed to wait at least 4 weeks between the sets and that was for 1.5 mm. So I'd look it up carefully if I were you.
  21. So I've ordered a 1.5mm dermaroller from eBay and once it shows up I'll start using it. I'll post my results here later on.
  22. They will fade but it will take a looong time. All my post-accutane marks haven't faded yet and it's been over two years since I finished the treatment.
  23. I just got $2616 from my insurance company for my scars. So if you have scars similar to mine start milking your company for money. Fraxel or no fraxel, that is the question. Suggestions people?
  24. Correct. I thought about getting a tube but it's quite expensive. Hahn089, please update us when you've tried it out.
