  1. helloo there! was wandering if anyone able to give me advice on a couple of things. I have combination skin which is extremely oily - i have been using BP 4% which has cleared up the odd cluster of spots that i would get but my problem is blackheads!! since probably age of 16 i have has blackheads completely covering my nose and all of my cheeks and obviously all over my chin - the blackheads in turn just make my face look an absolute mess. The texture is horrible - my pores are huge and no matt
  2. I QUOTED THIS FROM CHRISSY. I am sorry for posting his or her message here without consent , but this is VERY HELPFUL TO ALL ACCUTANE TAKERS as well as POST ACCUTANE TAKERS , so i decided to post it here NOW as to inform everyone likes me who thinks nth should be done post accutane treatment for at least 6 months . Thank you ! Hi, I thought it might be easier to start a separate thread for post-Accutane scar treatment considerations. Here's everything that I've read on the topi
  3. I'm in my early 30's and I have the worst acne of my LIFE! Right now I'm dealing w/ 2 HUGE whiteheads (biggest ever) plus 3 cysts that are about the size of a dime. I have blackheads around the T-zone and then ](*,) something just grrrreat, I developed them along my jaw the last 6mos. I have been on Accutane, full course, twice. Lately I have not been on any topical or oral meds (as of 5-6yrs) but I started OrthoTriCyclenLo to help w/ the skin (yeah, right...now, it's worse) and I go to the
  4. Does the skin become thinner after going through micro-dermabrasion?
  5. have any of you guys had microdermabrasion done? if so, how were the results? what kind of scars did you have?
  6. Hey anyone have experience with Microdermabrasion? i visited a skin center today and they said it would help even in Active acne ... its known to clear the skin completely? Any ideas? Cheers!
  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
  8. My doc that did my clearlight has recommended that I try microdermabrasion. I have heard that this does not do a whole lot for scars. Well what I am wondering is do you think this will help get rid of all the whiteheads/clogged poors that I have that are under the skin? That seems to be my biggest problem. My pores clog up and you can see them brewing under the skin and then a bunch pop up at once and get all inflamed. Any advice on the microderm would be helpful. I think I would probably
  9. Hey all, I checked the FAQ page about Dermabrasion before posting here and couldn't find a thread dedicated to it...if there is one, I apologize for "re-posting." There is one kind soul on the board (Misty) who has shared photos of her progress after Dermabrasion, but other than that... I'm seeing a plastic surgeon right now for my scars and he's doing "deep microdermabrasion." (He does not do dermabrasion). It's not the kind of treatment that a "salon" will do or an aesthetician. I did bleed
  10. I know how you find a plastic surgeon or dermatological surgeon, but I was wondering (aside from asking them) how to find ones that specialize in dermabrasion. It seems to me that a lot of Doctors perform these procedures, but mainly do other procedures the majority of the time like noses, breasts, etc. I hope this isn't a stupid question. ~Emma
  11. What is the difference between dermabrasion and microdermabrasion? Some people refer to microdermabrasion as dermabrasion. Isn't dermabrasion different?
  12. Here's how it goes for me... I been breaking out since I was fourteen. Tried lots of stuff, with no real significant changes. I still break out and it doesn't seem to get much better. I didn't much mind that I was breaking out when I was a teen because frig, teens break out. But now I've recently turned twenty and I'm still breaking out just like before. It bothers me so much cuz at this point I'd hoped acne would be ancient history for me. It gets so depressing I never leave my house.
  13. Has anyone ever tried the at home microdermabrasion system called DermaSponge"? I just read an article on a web site that promises this treatment is as good if not better than a microdermabrasion done at a spa. It has a 30 day money back garantee. It sounds too good to be true. If anyone has tried it let me know if it worked on superficial acne scars, that's what I have.
  14. Hi All, I've read a lot about the risks associated with scar treatment after Accutane. The conventional wisdom seems to be anywhere from 6 months to as much 2-3 years after Accutane. However, everything I've read applied to resurfacing procedures such as dermabrasion and laser resurfacing. What I'm wondering is what kind of data is out there for other types of scar treatments such as subcision, needling, smoothbeam, etc after having Accutane? Do the same risks apply? Can anyone point
  15. I'm schedule for a microdermabrasion next Tuesday and I'm sort of scared. If I have a few active zits on my face, will they pop it? because I heard that's what the person performing the microdermabrasion did to that person and it left a few scars. Someone please help so I can relax
  16. :D/ What I've discovered. . . I've been on a mission to get rid of acne, prevent further scarring, and get rid of current acne scars. I have spent a lot of time researching ideas and trying various things. I am still looking for better and improved methods. The follow is what I've discovered so far: 'Age-Less Skin Formula' by Bluebonnet made my skin look wonderful, radiant, and gave an overall glow. Take one capsule daily. It did absolutely nothing for acne but I liked what it
  17. I just started microderm a few weeks ago...and I have mild/depressed scars.....the dr. says that with aggressive treatments every week I can get these resolved....she is using a 3 setting on them and stepping on the peddle more as she goes over the scars over and over...they are red when i leave and she is gonna do i every week.....has anyone had success with microderm and having aggressive treatments on shallow scars? TIA!
  18. Hi guys, Please view these pictures and give me your honest opinions about what kind of treatment might help. I feel like my back is up against the wall. ](*,) I guess I am having an ugly day.

  19. Dear everybody, I am scheduled to have a dermabrasion on Aug. 1st. I have been told I would get a 50% improvement. She said the worst she's had is people saying it wasn't worth it. Do you think I should go for it, or not? Please give me your thoughts because I only have one life and I want to try and start living it
  20. hi i have gone spot dermabrasion last month and i have notice new scars from skin thinning? does the glycolic acid solution 30%(not a peel) help make new epidermis regrow again??
  21. Well I went ahead and had dermasanding procedure done on my entire face for 3400$. I posted a couple days back about how my doc change my procedure from Dermabrasion to Dermasading using Carbide sandpaper because he said i tested postive for Hep B. The operation lasted 2 hours and half hours. He also told me it gives him greater precision to sand certain spots. I tried looking everywhere on the net but couldn't find much about dermasanding. So pretty much i was deperate for a change and can n
  22. I was thinking of getting microdermabrasion to lessen the appearance of my scars and even skin tone. It seems like a good idea since I can get it for around $80-$125. Anyone who has had it, did it make significant difference in your scars and skin tone? Thanks.
  23. Hehe ok so I know this isn't really a regimen or anything, but I figure it coudln't hurt to keep track of my microdermabrasion treatments. I'm pretty much clear of acne, just have uneven skin tone and some red blotches left over. I also have an indententation about an inch in width and half an inch in length, it's very shallow. My first appointment was today and so far I'm still red (about 8 hours after appointment). My indentation was really red and i think a little bit of blood came out...
  24. Hey, I live in the Suburbs of Phila., and was wondering if anyone has seen good results from dermabrasion, or laser from any doctors in the PA, or NJ areas?thanx
