  1. Dude, You are very trusting. Most people on this site think there issues ARE super urgent, so expect a lot of emails. In any case, i wish you good luck in your last stages of treatment. It seems as if you have put a lof of effort in correcting the damage that was done to your face. I acttually looked back at your post, and you do have a picture of yourself posted on a thread a long time ago. I think this was before you had the scarring and were only dealing with acne. One this is all done
  2. Very interesting, indeed. Nice to see that different methodologies are being discussed within the medical community.
  3. I don't know how I feel about this. You were offered a treatment, the doctor performed said treatment, and you incurred no negative results. I am not sure if the fact that you did not get the results that your felt you deserved is a good enough reason to fight the charge. I don't know, did the doctor offer a money back guarantee? If not, then I have moral issues with fighting a charge for a service that was performed. A lot of us have gone to dermatologist for skin issues, and have been giv
  4. I know you said you are afraid of it, but Retin A has always been a saving grace for me. I have been taking it for over 14 years and it has worked great for brown spots. You face will shed in the beginning, but overtime it really does work great. When I stop the medication I get in to trouble. Retin A is also safe to take over the course of a life time. As for the financial aspect, send me a PM and I can give you a site where you can get it for real cheap. Good luck to you!
  5. Good powerpoint on needling. Check it out: http://www.karinskorner.net/skin-needling.pdf
  6. Really dude, have you done any research on this board? Needling IS the hot topic here. There are several post on how needling coupled with Vitamin A (Tretinoin) and Vitamin C creams will help with collagen production, which will improve the appearance of your scars. Just do a search, all the information is here.
  7. Okay, there does not seem to be a lot of people who claim to suffer from this, and it seems like only recently that I have started suffering from this illness. Actually, I am pretty sure it is not acne at all, but some other type of affliction due to me sitting on a chair all day long. To summarize, over the past few months, my once smooth butt has become very bumpy with several cyst type growths. The bumps feel like they were due ingrown hairs, but I can't be sure if that is the case. In an
  8. Dude, I saw an x-rated movie with a girl who had the same problem. I don't know what to tell you, but I can definately visualize what you are going through. Good luck!
  9. This message board is like a soap opera. I love it!
  10. Tane at extremely low doses (5mg a day) can greatly reduce your oil output. There are some great drugs coming out in a few years that claim to reduce/eliminate excess oil productions. In the mean time, accutane could bbe used as a substitute. Excessive oil production is a horrendous feeling and can be even worse than acne itself. Do your research on this site and on the web. Then make an educated decision.
  11. Hey, Did you read his website? He does use PRP for acne scars. "MC Acne Scar Therapy is one of our signature procedures developed by Dr. Choi. MC Acne Scar Therapy is a truly bio-friendly approach to reduce the appearance of acne scars. What is the procedure like? A small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce platelet rich plasma (PRP). Upon activation, PRP is applied to the skin with acne scar with Mi-Roll® System. In addition deeper acne scars are individually injected w
  12. I am just saying that with rolling the gains out weigh the cost. I also stated that is is a long term regimen that one will need to keep up. Outside of acne scar revision, rolling is very good for firming the skin and reduction of wrinkles. With respect to your comment about it being a miracle cure, I don't believe it is, but for those with mild to ,oderate scarring it can be of great help. I compare it to working out. We all know consistently going to the gym and eating healthy is the key
  13. Thanks for the info and I am sorry about your experience.n I think you story reinforces why treatments such as dermrolling and nneedling are the best for scar revision. Why they are very time consuming, I believe tthey give the best results without any major complications. Of course. Such treatments will be more effective for mild and moderate scarring than severe acne scarring. I would rather use a dermaroller for 2 years and attain 50% improvment than waste money on lasers and peels over t
  14. Looks like someone has been talking to Bethany on EDS. She is great. Anyways, good luck.
