  1. I am having the same problem right now, except I have more than one. Maybe 5-6? I am considering getting IPL done, maybe that will do something. I have one on my upper lip that is still a bit open(and occasionally bleed) and it's two wks old! I also had one on my cheek that was raised and black. I know i shouldn't do this, but I poked a hold in the middle of the black scar with a sanitized needle, and omg, blackish red blood poured out of that little hole like a nosebleed...! It was sooooooooo
  2. Hi. I actually have my very first IPL appmt booked for next wednesday... It will be $250 per session, and I booked three sessions... I'm still in my early 20s, and $750 is a lot of money for me. So i really wanted to make sure this will help with my acne scarring. I don't have any vein problems or rosacea at all. It's purely for acne scars. Some are brownish, some are red, some are flat, some are raised slightly. I don't get little pimples, i get the MEGA SIZE cystic acne. I only get one or two
  3. Ok- I personally think that if Ortho tricyclen helped you before, then you should go back on it. True, it may take 2-3 months for everything to adjust in you system and the Diane 35 may get things under control in that time frame, but you already know that Ortho-tricylen is a winner for you. Don't fix it if it ain't broke, in my opinion. ;) BTW- I was on BCP for over 13 years and as far as I can tell, it hasn't damaged me. :lol: I was Demulen for a long time, and it didn't do much for my
  4. I don't think it will harm you in any way in the long run. I watched this Asian documentary where these 70-80-year old men and women living in this small village have the health of a 40 year old and they all drink pure ACV everyday as long as they can remember. Doctors did all these different tests and every one of them had healthy stomach. And they actually DRINK that stuff, so i would think that would be harsher than the pill form, and yet they were all perfectly fine. Vinegar is a big thing
  5. I totally agree with diet affecting acne. I found that cutting out dairy and greasy, deep fried food helps keep my skin less oily and clogged. Also, i find pork anything worsens acne. I am going to try this green smoothie thing and hope it works. If anyone else tried it, please let us know how it did.
  6. Hi! This is my first posting here... and I am desperate for an answer. I was on diane 35 and accutane when i was a teenager to control my severe acne, and since then, i have had pretty clear skin with some occasional pimples and lotsa blackheads, but i wasn't too worried. I was on Ortho Tricyclen for about 7 years afterwards and that kept things under control, i believe. Then i heard all these bad things about staying on BCP for a long period of time, so i decided to go off of it, and shortly a
