  1. Our skin weighs about 8 pounds, with a total surface area of about 22 square feet. It does not come as a surprise that it is the largest and arguably one of the most important organs of our body. Our skin is waterproof, shielding us from extreme weather conditions, and keeping out harmful chemicals and pollutants out of our body. Although the skin sounds like an invincible shield that protects us from harm, it is also very vulnerable. A minor injury can make a big difference in how it looks
  2. Hey guys, I've tried a few products in the past for my uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation. Lately, I've gave this cocoa butter product a chance (by Palmer's) I have to say, I've seen AWESOME results from it, and I'm reaaal happy about it! Here's what my skin looked like before using it. (I had an ongoing rash and hyperpigmentation for quite a while) February 17th, 2013 Here's 8 days into the Palmer's oil (February 25th, 2013) Here's 17 days later March 14th, 2013
  3. I finished accutane around 1 year ago and I was left with really bad red marks but they have mostly cleared up. But now I have noticed more of an uneven appearance on my cheeks. I have always known I have had rolling scars since I finished accutane but as the red marks have cleared up more, the more my rolling scars are showing and it's really getting me down. I hate looking at myself in the mirror because all I see is uneven texture especially in bad lighting. The only positive thing about this
  4. Currently wondering what acne scar treatments I can get on low dose 0.1mg per kg body weight (10mg/d). I really want to get treatments for mild acne scars and red marks but I’m still breaking out a little bit (mild acne) and I’m scared that if I cruise on low dose accutane I won’t be able to get my scars revised until I’m off or I’ll have to wait 6 months also a quick side question, how long does it usually take for accutane to kick in and stop you from getting new spots? (Not to see a diffe
  5. All, Can anyone identify the type of acne scar shown in the photo and also suggest a treatment that really works (based on your experience)? Thanks AF
  6. Hello. I have recently just joined because I felt so alone. I have had acne since I don't know when and I am now 25 and it is still here. I am on oxytetracyclie for almost three months now and I am also on a birth control pill called Rigevidon. The scars have left me feeling depressed. Is there any treatment that anyone can suggest so I can look into it? I'm not really sure what type of scars I have and I don't know if the pictures would show them clearly.
  7. Hello all, here are a couple of pictures of my acne scars that I’d like anyone to rate. I don’t think the pictures really show them off to their full severity and I’ll try to take better ones if anyone wants that. I’m currently on 60mgs of accutane so excuse the dry lips. I’m also starting to think about acne scar treatment. maybe this is a feeling some of you know well but I’m constantly in a different mindset flip flopping from seeing my reflection in some good incandescent light which
  8. I developed cystic acne 4 to 6 months after the birth of my daughter when I was about 23 years old. I thought maybe my hormones were still disrupted but I continued having it since. When I was finally able to get treatment I fell pregnant again and had to hold off on treatment, leaving me with severe scars due to not interfering right away and clearing it up. Now I am 29 and I've maintained clear skin with occasional breakouts that last a week or two with spironolactone and retin a for the pa
  9. Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows any acne scar specialists in Ireland? I went to a clinic and they gave me a free nurse consultation and didn’t even look at my skin..they just gave me a menu of the expensive treatments they do.. Wish I could afford to get a plane ticket and see Dr Davin Lim over in australia lol
  10. I'm new to this guys so I hope I'm posting this in the right place, and if I'm not I'm so sorry! I'm looking for any & all recommendations from those who've had good scar treatment results from doctors in NY or surrounding areas. After much research, I think the best bet for my deep boxcar scars is subscision and/or excision followed by fillers. I'm not opposed to looking at other things. But does anyone know of doctors who do this in the tri state area (ny, nj, ct). As a side quest
  11. Hey guys. So I'm completely new to this site but I just wanted to get your advice on where I should start in terms of treating my acne scars. Here are some pictures of the troubled areas of my face. (Ignore the white stuff. Those are from my spot treatment (Dapsone/Aczone). Basically, my cheeks are the only troubled spots but it is very prominent. Any advice on how I should go about with this? To my fellow Canadians who also live in Ontario, any idea if derm appointments are covered by OHI
  12. Always make sure that there is someone in the room to document the subcision to make sure you are actually getting the treatment you paid for!
  13. Treatment of Acne Scars There are various medicines out there to fight skin break out scars. While none of them truly give moment results, they can essentially diminish scarring or dispose of them after some time, contingent upon the seriousness. The thought behind skin break out scar medications is that new cells will supplant old harmed cells. There are some topical scar medicines that begin this procedure through the making of solid skin cells. There are numerous over the treatments, ye
  14. Can I ask what type of scaring is that? Ice pick, boxscar and enlarge pores? What is the most affordable treatment for it?
  15. I'm sorry to ask and I'm looking through the boards/reviews on people's experiences...is there a pinned thread on pain, cost, and necessity based on type and depth of scar/acne history? I have relatively shallow scars all over (rolling) and a few deep icepick ones. Right now I have serious hyperpigmentation due to aldactone and laser hair removal (which has worsened the acne). I am still struggling with cystic acne. I get that any specialized laser is obviously going to be more expensive t
