  1. Californiagal: YIKES! When I read your post my jaw dropped. I have had pretty good experiences with restylane. I did have a reaction to cosmoplast collagen. It left a white linear scar - it is not very large, though. The doctors thought the restylane triggered the staph infection with you? I agree that you have to be cautious. That's why I am the point that I do not want to do anything very invasive - I thought fillers were the answer, but your post makes me wonder.
  2. I had questions similar to yours.....I am not pregnant and not trying yet but will be soon. From what I understand, it is not recommended that you use salicylic? sp? acid during pregnancy.
  3. I apologize if I offended you. I misunderstood your original post. A counselor may be able to refer you to a physician. I just think that in that scenario, why not go to a plastic surgeon or dermatologist (preferably) and work from there? If you feel that you can talk to someone about acne and scarring, then it probably would be beneficial.

  5. Thanks for the replies, ladies. It seems when you are pregnant EVERYTHING is a red flag Maybe I will be one of the lucky ones whose skin gets better.
  6. I have a question for all you moms and fellow acne sufferers. My hubby and I want to start trying to conceive. I have been off the pill for 5 months - wanted to get it out of my system completely before starting. Now I am already breaking out like crazy. I am starting to really break out badly on my neck and chest. I am feeling like a teenager again - and not in a good way! We are going to start trying to get pregnant in a month or so. Right now, I am just using Neutragena body wash - whi
  7. I am sorry your family reacted that way. It is very hard for people without scars to comprehend how this can impact your self-esteem. I totally understand your feelings - you are not being wimpy or silly for wanting to improve your skin's appearance. It does stink that your family is not more supportive.
  8. Pete: I was just wondering if you ever tried the prescription medication that you had mentioned in an earlier thread? Thanks.
