  1. hi, im a seventeen yr old female. I've been struggling with back/chest/shoulder acne for about 4 years now. Switched to body shops tea tree shower gel and the acne has stopped :) now I'm left with these scars :< I exfoliate once a day with a back brush from body shop and the tea tree shower gel. everynight I apply body shops tea tree leave on night mask. I've started this regime since November but I've yet to see any drastic improvement.body acne scars really suck and I've been forced to limi
  2. So as y’all are very aware I have acne scars from my acne that’s just about gone a month ago. I wanted to ask people if I should leave it to heal on it’s own or if I should use this roactuane gel as prescribed by my doctor just I don’t want another flare up before school so idk. Should I just leave it? I’ll post some photos of my face down below so you can see what it looks like.
  3. I was traumatized with horrendous acne on my chest and back from the 1970s and 1980s. Today I saw just how bad those scars are. Thank God the scars on my face are nowhere near as bad as the scars left on my back. Is there any plastic surgery procedures that can help smooth out deep ice pick scars on the back? Some even go up to my neckline which I never realized until today. The photo I am attaching is not very good. The scars are much deeper and wider. Thanks for your help.
  4. First of all, I'm really sorry for my English. I'm currently 18 and suffering from acne scars I've suffered from acne started when I was 12 (not cystic, it's like whiteheads, blackheads, and sometimes pimple) and I don't really have many acne right now, they just show up in some spots and they rarely show up. Anyway, so I'm suffering from the scars that are left from the acne. Now I'm not sure if the scars just showed up naturally or what, but back in 2016 I applied azelaic acid on my acne wh
  5. Hello I'm 20 years old and I've been dealing with acne since I was 16 my derm described me adapalene 0.3 and minocycline but I'm not taking those cause I been on them before and I might break out bad again after I get off them so far I'm not breaking out that bad I have acne scars and marks and I do get breakouts which sucks cause they itch and they leave a red mark but they are so tiny
  6. Hi all, I am looking into subcision treatments and was wondering if anyone has had good results from anywhere within Sydney, Australia. Any recommendations would be great!!! Also, how long should one wait post accutane to receive subcision treatments? Thanks, hotdog1996

  10. I was wondering, what's the best option for dermarolling between a very harsh dermarolling session(2.0mm rolled until face was swollen and purple) with some subcision or multiple normal dermarolling sessions with same needle length.(all done by a specialist) My thought was: Multiple sessions are better because it breaks the scar tissue on the day which is done and starts the healing process weeks after and when the next session is done it breaks the new scar tissue formed while your skin is

  12. I've read posts on this site for a long time, but I finally caved in and made an account so I could make my own post. I have no one else to vent to that would understand, so I'm just going to rant for a bit about the horrible effect acne has had on my life. I started breaking out before I was even a teenager, I was around 12. It started out as just a few spots here and there on my face, but it got so much worse. I am now 19 and have it literally EVERYWHERE. I have it on my chest, my sh

  14. Hello folks, What is considered to be the best treatment method for acne scars by this community? I guess it differs from how the acne scars look and where they are located but what do you think?
  15. Just saw my reflection when I wad outside. Daylight makes it look a lot worse. The sad part is, I guess, that's the real and true lighting since you'll be able to see your face clearly. I wake up with a rapid heart beat thinking if my scars had gotten worse or if i have a new zit which will leave a scar as well. Background - I'm taking my 2nd course of accutane and I'm almost done with my 5th month. My 1st course was way back in 2013, I only had dry lips and it didn't cause any scarring. This
  16. Need someone to talk to about my acne:(
  17. Someone please help me il skip the Sermon on how I hate my face and cry of how acne scars ruined my life and I'm depressed and hate life right now. I've had acne for 7 years now (I'm 20 now) and I've done a lot to my face (proactive,dermatologist,medicine,laser treatment, etc...) the laser was the most effective I believe but that was 3 years ago. All I do now is wash my face with organic soap that has vitamin D, aloe vera (natural from the plant)/honey mask everyday day take zinc daily too. I c
  18. Hi All, I've never posted or replied any threads here but I've been observing for quite awhile. First of all, my acne scars are not severe... but I hate when they look very noticeable especially when I put make up on so I've been looking for the most effective way to get rid of them. I've been interested in the needling methods... but I hadn't found any websites that really showed the genuine results from real people until this blog that I'm going to show you. It is written in Thai, I'm sorr

  21. I have got a lot of scars on the cheeks, but 2 of them are the worst, they were caused by pimple popping while i was asleep(lot of blood came out), these scars are not very visible on the outside but when I touch it, feels like "a part" of the cheek is gone, they somehow 'deform' the shape of my face. Comparing theses 2 scars to the rest of them, all the other scars are more superficial rolling scars, when touched can't feel most of them but I can feel there is this uneven texture(did some derma
  22. My doctor put me on birth control (ortho-tricyclen) after my first period in middle school. Fast forward - clear skin for almost my entire life until I turn 19 and decide I don't need to be on synthetic hormones. Three months later, cystic acne all over my cheeks, jawline, and neck. Sound familiar? Straight away I go to the derm. Get put back on ortho-tri. I stayed on the ortho tri only to experience mediocre results, then moved onto yaz for three months which caused a literal facial explosion
  23. okay so i diluted white distilled vinegar with some water and dabbed it on my forehead w a cotton ball (idk probably bc google said its good for acne) and it ended up just leaving little scars and scabs on my pimples. i also had comedones that were burned and now are red and scabby. now my face is all red, inflamed, and scarred. heeellppp!!
  24. My skin used to be sore, inflamed and embarrassing- due to adult acne... The pain of it meant that even if I wasn't looking in a mirror i couldn't even forget i had acne because I could FEEL THE PAIN OF IT; especially in my cheeks. My partners brother works in skincare and he recommended a product line called 'The ordinary' They are a product line that are ACTIVE ingredients- you know how skin care lines have 'active ingredients' in them- and those active ingredients make up probably
  25. I've been trying to get rid of these for a long time, and it seems like nothing has been working. It seems to me like they're acne scars but I can't really tell. They're not raised and if you feel my skin it feels smooth and like there's nothing here. I have mild but persistent acne and have been going to a dermatologist for a few years to try and clear it up. Right now I'm taking antibiotics and using aczone and retin A creams. The topicals dry out my skin so much and make this area even redder
