  1. @beautifulambition Thanks for the advice again,BA. I was not freaking out or anything, it was just frustrating to see someone saying there is no improvements after all these treatments, especially Infini RF microneedling. I understand that everyone heals differently and there are many other factors affecting healing. I just wanted to hear what you think on this. I am sorry that I tend to rely on your opinion in every scar/treatment related topics and I truly appreciate all the support and
  2. @tartan123 When did you do the Infini RF microneedling? and how often? I am considering to do several RF microneedling treatments and its depressing for me as well that it did not really do much for your scars. You scars are very shallow compare to my scars.. Personally, looking at your scars, I think you are perfect candidate for RF microneedling.. it is very shocking and frustrating . Did you see any improvements in overall face quality? like texture, tone, pores, pigmentation, etc?
  3. Active acne is because I stopped taking Accutane one week before the treatment and started taking accutane 1 week after the treatment. During this 2 weeks of not taking Accutane, I have got 1-3 new active ones. Hopefully, they be gone soon My Dr completely cleaned my pits with acetone before the treatment and about the technique, I saw him doing the procedure with the mirror and I would say he did the treatment quite okay. I know cross take many sessions and I also know I am a poor he
  4. I have done TCA Cross about 2 weeks ago and I know it is little too early to tell the improvement already but after the treatment, scab did not really form for me as well. I mean I am pretty sure it is because I moisturized way too much that I did not allow scabs to be form completely. What I mean by completely is that the scabs should be hard form of scab but I applied too much cream that the scabs rather became jellish and looked like just another skin layer on top of the skin. Plus, even
  5. * Day 10 * ( Picture : Left (Before treatment), Right (Today) ) Almost all scabs fell off and honestly, I do not see any improvement at all. 3-4 months ago, my Dr have done test spot with TCA for 2 of my scars. This time, after the treatment, I have not moisturizing at all and the scab was hard and took longer to be fell off. After scab fell, these tested spots were very red and took about 10 weeks to be normal. This time, I moisturized soooooo much, like at least 5 times/day. I found

  7. Hey there, Yes, it is very tough process... my healing ability has always been not good and no, I did not inject any fillers. How are you healing after the treatment? do you see any improvement yet? and what kind of filler did you use? Cheers,
  8. * Day 7 * - I have been moisturizing many times to make sure all the spots moist. This made all the scabs to be jellish? and while I very softly applying cream on my face one of the scab fell off. This spot was very deep pitted ice pick scar and it seems to be wider (but the depth is hard to tell whether it is improved or not- no visual improvement) - 2 other scabs fell off for more swallow scars and they became wider (again, no visual improvement in depth wise, so far). It is certai

  10. * Day 3 * - Seems like scabs are slowly forming - Most of the treated spots became so much darker - Trying to keep spots moist all the time (3~5 times a day) with polysporin and Taro-Mupirocin - Swelling slowly going down but still there - I had 4 subcision point and 3 of them are healing pretty well but one of them has a really big hole and does not seem to be healing well. - Had small bruises around the subcision points and I felt a little pain and discomfort bu
  11. Yes, I was on 10mg/day for 3 months and I waited until purging period end. I stopped taking Accutane 1 week before the treatment and planning to take 20mg/week instead 1 week after the treatment. My doctor said it is okay to take low dose Accutane and do Subcision + TCA Cross. I noticed that my face is a lot more sensitive and more prone to scarring (or maybe less healing ability) but I wanted to make sure all active acne under control before I start the treatment. I am planning to take 20
  12. So after a very long purging period (almost 3 months) I finally did first session of TCA Cross + Subcision. Treatment did not go well but I think it was okay. One of the scar has excess TCA around it and it became quite dark. My Doctor did not really do TCA paint but rather treated all the scars (ice pick and boxcars) the same way, TCA Cross. He treated my right cheek with 50% TCA and left cheek with 70% for some reason. Maybe because my left cheek is more severe? It could be goo
  13. There is not much TCA Cross forum in this website so I thought it would be great to start one. I wish this treatment works out really well for me and hope it will be helpful for others considering TCA Cross or other scar revision treatments. I am Asian, 27 years old and currently on low dose Accutane, 10mg/day (stopped taking it a week ago because of the treatment. Going to take it next week 20mg/week probably) So after a very long purging period (almost 3 months) I finally
  14. Low Dose Accutane (10mg/day) - Day 109 It took me about 109 days until the initial break is finished.. holy... Face became extremely prone to scarring > most recent pimples left me one deep box car and one deep ice pick scars (Yellow circled); Face so dry It is certain that the side effects is certainly less severe for low dose Overall, for past 109 days, my face got worse and worse everyday -TCA Cross: test treated - Day 94 (Red circled) I thought t
  15. I am also a sufferer from severe acne scars. I totally agree with you that nobody does not care about the scars. It is always just me who cares about it. I know about it and I try to be positive but it is damn too hard.. I think it is just impossible for me. I do not think my life can be happy with these severe scars on my face. I am planning on treating my scars.. It will take at least a year. I am going to spend my whole 2019 on treating my scars and it will be my last time trying to fix
  16. Dude, I know you are frustrated, but this is not the way you express your frustration. You made your decision, nobody made that decision for you. I am sorry that the result is not what you expected but it is just too funny how you are insulting one of the greatest dermatologists who devoted himself in scar revision field. You should be thankful that you can actually get treatments from Dr.Lim. If I was able to travel for the treatments, Dr.Lim would be my number 1 choice. Hope your scar gets
  17. Are you planning to take longer? or are you done taking it anymore? Did you experience any Initial Breakout? Thanks
  18. There are a lot of great adviser in this website and posting a picture will help them provide you more accurate advise. Depression could be one of the side effects of the Accutane as I am also suffering from it and I am currently on low dose Accutane. How long has it been that you stopped taking Accutane? I think it will take for awhile for your skin to go back to normal condition. I recommend you to research on finding good dermatologists around your area. Stay strong.
  19. Day 75 (10mg/day) - Thought initial breaking out period ended, sadly I am still breaking out - Got every active acne extracted 2 days ago and there are 5 new pimples growing on my face already - Symptoms of depression - Mild pain in back and around heart area Day ~60 (Spot treated with TCA) - Very little improvement, one of the area became so much wider - I have done light peel 2 days ago and it made the treated area very red I decided to stop posting updates until this freaking stubb
  20. I totally understand how you feel because that is exactly how I feel recently.. I have been suffering from severe acne scars for almost all my life and it is influencing my life so fking negatively. Trust me, my scars are severe as fk.. I think this extreme stress caused me to develop some kind of psychosis.. I get so freaking obsessed on my skins that, for past 2 years, I have been taking at least 20 pictures of my face every fking day.. literally every day.. I have over 10,000 pictures of m
  21. Is been nearly 80 days for me for taking 10mg/day. I am still having issue of breaking out. They are so stubborn.. always 2-4 active ones on my face no matter what I do... Are you planning to take low-dose for a long time? The side-effects are certainly less than the normal dose. Do you do monthly blood test too? Hope everything works out well for you!
  22. Omg, how generous thank you so much for your consideration. I know isotretinoin negatively influence healing ability but recent studies say that low dose accutane is okay with some of the treatments. There are doctors who are saying it is okay to do low dose accutane while on some treatments and there are some doctors who are totally against it. My doctor says he has been treating patients with some treatments while on low dose accutane. I am quite afraid that it might negatively affect me
  23. May I ask your summarized timeline for the treatments? I am also thinking about going a long journey of treating my severe scars. Congrats on your dedication and hard work!
  24. How are you all doing? I am on day 75 (10mg/day) and still moderately breaking out. I still get stubborn cystic acne on my face and they never seem to get dried up and leave me red pigmentation marks even if they get dried up. Anyone here planning to take low dose Accutane for long-term? I am planning to take it for 1-2 years (going to decrease the dose when my face becomes stable) I am also planning to do scar revision treatments (TCA Cross and Subcision) when the IB is under control a
  25. Thank you for your suggestion! May I ask what kind of laser treatment your friend did? However, for my type of scars, which is severely pitted deep ice pick and boxcar scars, TCA Cross and subcision seem to be the best option. I am currently on day 75 on taking 10mg/day, and I am sadly still experiencing initial break out.. I am not breaking out crazy but I keep on getting 2-4 stubborn cystic acne on my face no matter what I do. They literally stay on my face forever and take so long to get d
