  1. I have beautiful skin tone. but then when i started to go on college suddenly pimples pops out. and have zits. so i pop them always. until i realize is it bad. so i try many products. and ended having a severe acne. right now i'm 18 yrs old. I dont want anybody to see me like this. I broke up with my girlfriend because of the severe acne on my face. i lost all my hope. and my face now have zit on it. i don't look at the mirror. and i dont want to go outside anymore. i tried many products too. b
  2. I found a great way to cover up my acne scars using just one product. However, you could use 2 if you'd like to add a primer that'll make sure your makeup wont slip and slide everywhere especially in the summer time! So I use Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for oily/combo skin. Its super full coverage but still looks natural! The formula is specifically for people with sensitive and oily skin which is perfect for us who have just that! Its super long lasting but if you want it to last even lo
  3. I have suffered from acne since the last 15 years and it has put me through so much of agony. I have tried every single thing that I read online. I have consulted a dermatologist and have done everything that was recommended by the dermat. It worked for sometime, but it always came back. I tried controlling my diet, it helped for some time and then it again came back. It might have been my crazy hormones and I always thought to myself that why ME. My acne has made me such a self conscious person

    The Regimen

    Does anyone know if the regimen help with acne scars at all?
  5. Not sure if this is the right place to be posting this but I was wondering what people know about diet and healing? How do I eat to optimize my bodies ability to heal? Obviously I mean my skin in particular. I already eat a good balanced diet. But what should I be eating more of? And what should I be avoiding? Thanks (p.s. I suffer from an auto-immune disease and I have recently heard that avoid inflammatory foods is important in controlling that, is that also true wit
  6. Hey everyone. So basically I have a pretty high self confidence now since my acne is all gone but It left me with a few little scars. I have VERY little ones (ones you could only see if you actually were a few inches away from my eyes). I have 3 minor pitted ones that are more noticeable but are really not that bad. I already am aware that my face looks completely normal with them but why is the back of my mind still worried about the littlest things like this when I know people don't pay attent

    My Acne Scars

    I had acne for about 5 years, which has now been completely cleared up by accutane. But I'm left with scarring, I can't tell what type of scarring it really is or how best to treat it or how severe it is. Any ideas?

  9. This is pretty long, so please bare with me. I have also attached pictures below, but I don't feel like it shows my scarring on my cheeks that well. I was on 6 months of doxycycline (over 2 years ago) to clear up existing acne while using atralin. After 6 months on the antibiotic I switched to taking Nicazel Forte continuously while still using atralin. (Currently using both) I have discussed treatment options with an esthetician at my dermatologist's office. I was told that l
  10. Hello guys! Im concerned about my scars left from acne in my teens, to get rid of my acne I went under an accutane treatment with my dermatologist for a while and now im 24 and last november I had a laser treatment that helped my scars. Currently Im getting microdermabrasion every 3 weeks, this coming tuesday is my second appointment. I have been thinking about dermaroller since I do not want anything as abrasive as the laser for now. Thanks for your help! And good luck as well!

    Acne Scars help!

    I've made two other posts with no responses (probably cause I went on a rant), so I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I started breaking out sophomore year of high school but didn't notice any scars until the end of junior year. Senior year was relatively acne free besides a few mishaps, but then the summer before college, I was very sexually active. Sex makes me breakout, I know it. Some people don't believe it, but it makes me break out with bad nodules. So going into college, I had a reall
  12. So tight now I'm on prescription antibiotics, BC, and tactu forte for my acne. It seems to be going well but it's only been about a week so it's still very early. Though, I have gone through acne before and have seen what my skin looks like without acne and it does have some red coloured scars. So I want one find out now what the best treatment for acne scars are that are red so that once I no longer have active acne I can treat them right away.

    Never Give Up

    Well well well, here I am. Back again. Back in the early 00s this community gave me so much support. I thought I would come back and give an update. Back then I was known as "Guardedly Optimistic" now i'm "Guardedly Optimistic 2017" This is the thing, it's a journey. My skin is still very damaged; mostly visible under harsh over head lighting. But...and get this...I ended up pursuing my dream of being an actor and filmmaker! Yes, acne and scars and insecurities and all that crap was not goin
  14. This is my last ditch effort to find a cure before I go insane and suicidal. I've been struggling with very severe acne since 7th grade. About 13 years old, I'm 20 now. I have it so bad I dont even want to leave my room but I have to. I have had severe acne everywhere almost. I have it all over my back with severe scars on my back, mind I tell you I have been picking my acne for a long time in hopes to hide it when I go in public. But in return you probably know this creates scars. Continuing I
  15. This has never been done to my knowledge, but ik lasers use heat so why not needling. I have been using electric neecling and have seen some improvement but what if the needlings were heated up and then injected in the skin really temprted to try this viewS??

    Help Me Out

    Hello Everyone, I am glad to have found this forum where I can share my thoughts and get suggestions. I am new to the forum though. I still hope you will help me out and give me your best opinion. I am San from Pak. I had had severe acne breakouts and it was a kind of absud of me to pop my pus filled acne. I would do that daily after coming back from the school and my habit eventually made my acne problem worse and then worst for me. I started to develop acne at the age of 12. It was so early, s
  17. I was thinking about dermarolling for these scars I know it takes time but I don't mind doing the complete proper research and investing a decent amount of money into it, what types of scars are these if its possible to tell? and would they respond to dermarolling in a lengthy treatment. I also heard about the Dermastamp and im not sure if that would do the same thing but it sounds easier for spot treatments. Another problem is redness with some scars. I also have some scars that seem to be ice-

  19. Hi, is it possible to level a deep boxcar scars on temple areas to the surrounding skin through TCA Cross? Has anyone here tried it? Thanks!
  20. From the album: wahh

    This is the other cheek. Basically the same as the other. And like the other pic's description, i dont know what kind of acne scarring this is, how severe it is. And if theres any hope. I cant afford doctors and stuff so my only optional is more natural stuff. So yeah if anyone can help me out here
  21. If I scar easily and maybe heal slow( I think I heal slow ) Maybe because of accutane 2 years ago.. Is it then GAME OVER for me, to just fade my scars or made them a bit better looking with some treatments are needling /dermaroller,dermapen,dermastamp,single) a total no go? even with a small needle length?
  22. From the time I was about 11 all the way through high school I had terrible acne. Come to find out it was because our well water had a bacterial problem and when I moved to college my acne magically disappeared for the most part except occasional break outs. Now I'm 23 and I've been left with these horrible acne scars (see pics). I'm so embarrassed by it and I hate leaving the house without makeup. It makes me soooo self conscious. They're concentrated on my cheeks and forehead. Does anyone have
  23. Hi there, this is my first post on the forum, although I've been reading through here for a couple years.. At the moment, I'm on my final month of Accutane to remove my cystic acne. The treatment has more or less worked it's job despite the redness and observable bumps/scars on my cheeks where the acne was most prominent. It has unfortunately left various bumps on my skin (almost like tiny holes over my cheeks) but nothing too deep as such.. As a teenager myself (18) I endure many activities o
  24. hey I've been using the regime for a year now. Some of my acne has cleared up but not all of it. My skin is oily in some areas and unbearably flaky and dry in some which all started after i used the regimen. MY skin still stings from using BP. I use two pumps because I've been using the regimen for so long but i don't think its still suppose to burn. I follow everything exactly also i use AHA. should i decrease the amount of bp that I'm using? for reference I'm 16 years old with moderate acne t
  25. Hello I have been using the derma roller 1.5 for acne scars for 6 months now, and 5 days ago used Tca face peel 12% and im barely getting any peeling, my question is what should be my wait time, I usually wait 2 months in between to derma roll my face , now that im using 12 % tca face peel how long does it take to heal cause its already been over 2 months since I derma rolled but I don't know if I should since I just just tca face peel, and also I don't think I have sensitive skin at all because
