  1. Hello everyone So in the past few days,I've summed up the courage to change my skin routine a bit. Starting with Evening Primrose Oil. I heard its good for acne and for the skin so I said "WHY NOT?!". It was like $6 for a bottle of 75 soft gel capsules at Walmart and I'll be taking one a day with a meal. Hopefully I can get rid of Trinessa soon. Them side effects are the death of me. Secondly, I ordered 20% salicylic acid from amazon, also known as the chemical peel. I read all the
  2. This is my first peel... and as you will see I have some acne scars and patchy skin. I have been seeing a dermatologist for six months and using triluma cream. I intend to do a second peel in 6 to 8 weeks.
  3. Hey, I’m 14 years old supposedly struggling with hormonal acne. I’ve got spots and blackheads on my forehead, acne scars on my cheeks, whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and clogged pores pretty much everywhere. I’ve considered using AHA and BHA peels by The Ordinary as I’ve heard chemical peels really benefit your skin. I was wondering if they really work or if they make things worse. Has anyone tried chemical peels or are there alternatives?
  4. Hi guys, I have quite bad acne scars, deep pitting on my cheeks and it's effecting my relationships and self esteem. I am looking at Pixel ErbiumYAG Laser treatment to try to improve the appearance but if I am going to get treatment I want the most effective treatment possible. Does anyone know if chemical peels would be more effective? Are there any other treatments that are very effective? Here is a photo of the scaring;
  5. My doctor gave me prednisone and doxycycline for a facial rash (flesh-colored bumps all over my face, no acne at first, then redness, then the bumps progressively turned into pustules) that came on very suddenly and turned into pustules, scabs, and facial redness that looks like I used a harsh chemical peel. I was on the prednisone for 6 days, and have been on the antibiotics for about 2.5 weeks and I've developed pustules around my mouth really bad, makes me think of perioral dermatitis or
  6. I just did the malt vinegar on my face last night and this morning and my face is bright red, like i got a professional chemical peel or something, I hope it helps my scars some. I can't believe regular vinegar can be so strong! LOL oh well wish me luck =D>
  7. Hi Maya, Happen to bump into this forum a few days ago and read so many results that was gotten from the Lemon/ Vinegar method for treatment of scars. =P~ I have went for CO2 Laser(once), Dermabrasion(once on a test patch), Micro-dermabrasion(Thrice), YAG Laser(Twice), Chemical peeling(>15 times), Fats transfer to pump up the scars(Twice and helps the moment the fats is transplanted) but all this only helps to improve my scars a little.... #-o Reading your thread here gives me a

    Permanet RED MARK after i spilled 100 % TCA over my normal skin . What can help with that? Mandelic acid seems not working on it , instead it irritates it .. though when i press on the area firmly , the red mark goes . Who thinks a deep chemical peel / intense pulse light or whatever can help with that?
  9. Hey Yall! today I broke down and cried at my dentist's office-i went crazy! not just b/c of the acne though. Anyways, its over now, and I have some questions regarding acne: 1. Has anyone tried a chemical peel for their scars, did it work really well, or was it just a quick fix for scars and not for acne? 2. Has anyone tried birth control? Was weight gain a serious problem for anyone? 3. Has anyone tried aloe vera, from the actual aloe vera plant, on their face? If so, how long did
  10. I have scars and blemishes caused by acne. They are so bad now, that I usually avoid going out in the public. I have heard of a chemical peel. Does it work for medium range (size) scars and really red blemishes? About how much do chemical peels cost in the midwest portion of the usa? Please, please, help me!!! I'm desperate here! [-o<
  11. I am a 42 yr. old white male with moderate acne scarring on one cheek. The scars are meduim deep ( boxcar of saucer shaped). Below I will list the treatments I have had done and the results. Dermabrasion: 15 yrs. ago: 20% improvement Deep Chemical peel: 10 yrs ago. Made surrounding skin look great but I detected no improvemnet for acne scars. Co2 Laser Surgery: 5 years ago. Again, great for overall skin, better texture and tone, minimal at best acne scar revision. Collagen injecti
  12. Hey eveyone, Well it's just one of those days when I don't feel like seeing or talking to anyone. I have quarantined myself to my house and refuse to leave for any reason. Whenever anyone calls for me I make the excuse that I am sleeping or I'm not home. :^o I didn't go into work on Thur., Fri. or even today. I don't want any of my coworkers to see me like this. I don't know what is more embarrassing, having acne or having visible signs of treatment. Have any of you ever been embarrass
  13. I heard alot of recommendation about MakeUpArtistsChoice website. I log on to that website and saw so many "glycolic peels" products. There are "Acne Treatment peels","Aging Skin Types peels", and "Chemical Peel Kit". So I am a little confuse of which catagory is fit for me. Here is my condition: I still have acne now and then but not much. I have a few scars on my right cheek and currently using Super CP Serum and Retin A. My major concern is my scars. I want to get rid of these scars so I can
  14. ok i use to go to the derm and he would do a chemical peel on me i had no idea one so each time i did it for 3 weeks my skin would look all open and nasty the scars would look really red and really big? Would this happen with lactic acid or did he do lactic acid with me, and was i suppose to do supper cp and emu oil? i didnt peel but it just look nasty and i didnt really see any improvments. it was in a white bottle and it was clear peel he would put on me. maybe it was alpha hydroxy o
  15. I asked Dr. Monheit about my chemical peeling (35% trichloroacetic acid + Jessner peel = Monheit Peel). He gave me the following answer: ---------------- The "Monheit" peel is a medium depth resurfaacing procedure which usually has little effect on scars alone. I combine this peel with manual dermasanding which can give significant improvement to superficial and dermal acne scars. The peel can be repeated every 6 months. ------------------------------------ My question is: Wh

  18. Has anyone used Olay Regenerist? On a commercial i just saw for it it said using it will give you results like having a chemical peel or microdermabrasion done, but without any irritation. their website is http://www.regenerist.com/
  19. lately i have been getting very oily on my nose, and my upper cheeks and around that area. Would it be safe to use astringent once every few days to get rid of that, or will that mess up my balance or something? I am currently using cetaphil mosturizer, and im going to switch to the eudacrin (sp?). Will that eliminate the greasiness too? I know this should be in the scar treatment section, but on my upper cheeck bone region i have little scars, that look like my pores are enlargened, not
  20. i am new to posting here but i have followed this baord a bit. i am 26 and a grand old acne-survior! i have tried everything under the planet for both acne and scars and until this week found nothing. looks like there really is nothing to stop new acne. but there sure is some hope for my scars. some days ago i tried the vinegar treatment suggested on this board. here is my experience with it that i have suggested with day/times that work for most of us that need to get out of the house during
  21. so here are my pics. I went to an aesthetician who told me they were ice pick scars.By the way the aesthetician is for help with my hyperpigmentation..she is doing some natural peels. I have had 6 so far and have seen no impovement. I went to see a derm yesterday and he said that I didn't have ice pick scars ...he didn't tell me what type I had though..he did say they were not like sharp or deep indents. I went in because I heard he performed the TCA CROSS treatment which I heard was very helpfu
  22. I am asian so my skin is somewhat tan. Plus, I am currently using a tretinoin cream on my face and I still have some acne (although not a lot -- about 3-5). I just want to get ride of the red marks on my face. These red marks make me look like I am suffering from moderate acne and my doctor said that it might take 1-2 years (not months) for them to disappear. I absolutely cannot wait that long. So, is it OK for me to undergo chemical peels like glycolic or lactic peels even though I sti
  23. Hi everyone, This is the first time I am trying to find out what I could do about my scars. I have scars on my back from pimples breaking out over a period of time. Is there a cream or some kind of chemical peel that I can buy online or over the counter that can help. The skin on your back is usually thicker or not as sensitive as on your face and therefore it can withstand stronger medication. I would really appreciate it if you guys can give me some information on what I can do. Thank

    I gave myself a chemical peel at home last night. Pretty good results so far! I'm just glad I didn't burn myself lol. My skin feels a lot smoother. I will be giving myself another peel in a few weeks, maybe less. I also used the Glycolic acid on my back & IT LOOKS GREAT. Even better results than my face had.
