  1. ive read in a lot of studies that shallow atrophic scarring can respons very well to this kind of treatment mainly a 60% imporvement trend from what ive read, then i have also read a lot of sources that claim they only improve scars in general by around 25% i only have about 4-5 very shallow soft scars on my right cheek that are only really visible in some lighting, the scarred pores would be a bonus if they went but thats not my main area of concern, how well do you think i will respond, thanks
  2. when i spot treat with bp i usually get a blotch of darker coloured skin for a few days and then when i stop treating it it dies down after a few days
  3. no it exfoliates and removes skin from the epidermis which will essentially peel them off
  4. yeh a sweet little trick until you get an immense amount of sun damage to your skin and a high probability of getting malignant melanoma/skin cancer in later life, you should try using some low concentration peels to fade them instead, theres nothing wrong with a bit of sunlight on top of that but from what it sounds like you are way over exposing yourself to the sun
  5. You got some kind of budget to work with? and a time for recovery that you could stay of school for these facts would help
  6. This isn't scarring and you should use the correct forum in future, try the red marks forum for better answers
  7. i dont have any experience in treating this kind of scarring but by what you are describing it sounds like keloid/hypertrophic scarring; silicone sheets (OTC) or cortisone injections have been the only effective treatment for these though
  8. bump, does anyone think a chemical peel might help seen as they are not very deep ? i have also established that i have only soft scars not rolling scars
  9. I always thought steroid acne was from using anabolic steroids not topical steroids which only made you break out in papules/pustules anyway
  10. If you havnt used accutane in the last year then i suppose you could try a chemical peel if you want them gone instantly, otherwise i agree that a glycolic acid (or other AHA) cream would probably work the best
  11. What do you mean by redness from scars, do you mean red marks of redness inside for instance an ice pick scar, eiither way it is unusual for it to last this long, maybe you could try a light exfoliant maybe 10% glycolic acid to help get rid of it/them.
  12. Not only have i never heard of that source before, but they have no hard evidence that it dsoes this, besides glycolic products have been used for years without any problems so i would just keep using it
  13. done use anything too harsh on your skin for about 1 day after and longer if the peeling lasts longer, also even though you're from the UK still put some sun cream on even if it isnt hot that dosent mean the UV rays arn't getting through, from what ive read irregular pigmentation of the skin can occur from not wearing sun cream after a chemical peel
  14. Well it says it exfoliates but ive never heard of it before, if you want to buy something that effectively exfoliates but some aha creams/moisturizers, something that is like 8-12% glycolic acid (Although maybe its a bit pricey the Alpha-H line of products have a good name in the UK and im about to start using them for my red marks and mild acne scarring)
  15. I wouldnt buy the wallmart one ive heard a lot about it making you break out severly even if you didnt have severe acne before, i dont know if this is available in toronto but the alpha-H products have a very good name over in the UK
  16. Im very confused as to the difference between deep soft scars and rolling scars are, or is it two names for one thing? Anyway i know i definitly suffer from several deep soft scars on my right cheek and i am wondering what the best treatment for them is, they are quite shallow and can be removed completely by simply stretching my skin a bit, perhaps a treatment that stretches the skin maybe? thanks.
