  1. You’re right. If I start accutane now the earlier the better. It could reset everything and I won’t have to worry about new scars
  2. Nice point. It’s that I want to continue my treatments (microneedling, lasers etc) but I cannot do that whilst I’m on accutane and 12 months after. I’m torn because I care more about the scars
  3. So I’m from the UK and can’t afford to see a private dermatologist. I went through the NHS waiting list to see a dermatologist that way. Yet, all I’ve been met with are nurses who constantly push accutane on me. The meetings were online so that adds to my frustration. The first nurse suggested accutane and I told her I don’t feel comfortable with taking accutane. It’s more of a last resort. She then suggested antibiotics and I told her they unfortunately don’t work on me. I then suggested that I

  7. Very interesting video. It’s almost like an art project. Each scar truly needs its own stylised treatment. Thank you for your knowledge and insight !
  8. Gosh all this conflicting advice is torture. I’m starting to think non of these procedures actually provide permanent results for my deep scars. I know the laser will blend the boxcar edges. Sucks it doesn’t bring back that lost tissue
  9. Could you give me a little more information on the level of improvement you think I could get? My guess is I have minor to moderate scarring Could you give me a little more information on the level of improvement you think I could get? My guess is I have minor to moderate scarring
  10. Thank you. I wrote this post when I was extremely emotional. I’ve done 10 dermapen sessions at home, 4 glycolic acid peels at 40% and some 50% tca. All at home. No professional. I’ve had 8-10% improvement hence why I broke down crying lol
  11. Do you think they’re too deep? Here’s some pics i have of both my cheeks under less harsh lighting. There is definitely some tethering and volume loss that’s for sure.
  12. Day two of non stop crying. My heart is absolutely broken. My throat hurts from crying so much. My face is gone. My cheeks are destroyed. I don’t know what to do. I’ve got a 15 minute free consultation with a scar specialist next week and I don’t want to break down in front of him because I have so much to say
  13. Now here me out, I’ve been doing my research on scars for almost two years and I’ve been left under the impression that scars just do not go away. If they do, it’s usually a mild improvement of 20%. I’m new to acne.org too hence I’ve been catching up on all the posts regarding acne treatments and I must say a lot of people don’t seem positive about the results they’ve had. Especially considering some have had a lot of treatments... years worth of treatments! I’m using Kendall as an example becau
