  1. From the album: My Skin

    Hey... My skin is looking pretty frickin' good lol. I've been sleeping more these last few days (even going as far as to take naps during the day) & drinking more water. I stopped taking evening primrose oil; it didn't seem to agree with my skin as far as I could tell, but it could've been something else. Right now I'm sticking to Beta Carotene, & added a collagen pill last night. I'm also washing off my makeup again before bed. Good results compared to my last pic. I'm happy.
  2. From the album: My Skin

    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.
  3. I just found this study online, in which the participants' scars were treated with microneedling and glycolic peels, both performed on the same day. There was significant improvement. I am curious to find out if anyone has ever tried this. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22151943
  4. Hi all, I haven't been on this website for a while.. but i am coming towards the end of my fourth month of Accutane. I must say the benefits of accutane are remarkable. Before my treatment, my dermatologist said i was ranked moderately severe with my acne. when i look back a few months.. I was scared to look in the mirror every morning as the thought of another pimple emerging was an ongoing threat. However currently I do not have any acne on my face, or if i do they are very minute no
  5. Hi! It's been a long time since I've been on this website, for the most part due to my life becoming very hectic! D: I just wanted to say that I think I am well on my way to being clear by the end of this year! Here's some changes I made in my diet that I think everyone should ponder on. NO, I'M NOT SAYING THIS WILL WORK FOR EVERYONE ;-) I just think these changes have made a major influence on my skin's improvement. I QUIT EATING EGGS! I learned not too long ago that eggs are SUPER infla
  6. My current diet is not very healthy in these past months, despite the fact that I still get enough proteins, vitamins, and carbs to keep myself nourished. Although, I'm not sure if I'm properly digesting these foods, because I constantly feel fatigued and depressed. I am really concerned with my low serotonin levels, constant migraines, high stress levels (due to negative thinking and inconsistent decision-making), and overall high anxiety levels. I feel like I'm just not my optimal self, but I
  7. Happy Monday! So, its officially been a month since I started using PC Products. I finally have found a regimen that is working for me and I REALLY beleive in it! I hope it continues to help clear up my skin! I am currently using: PC Clear Normalizing Cleanser morning and night PC Extra Strength 2% BHA Toner morning Cerave Facial Moisutrizer PM (Morning and night) PC 5% AHA Daily Smoothing Treatment PM (before moisturizer) Thats it! So far so good! I had a prety gnarly pur
  8. Hi ya'll! So Friday will be my 1 month mark with PC Clear System/PC products. Last week I left a pitty party entry about how depressed I was becuase of my skin and because I was purging, etc. Well, things have gotten a lot better, not only skin wise, but outlook wise! I realized last week how much my "skin" or more like the emotional side effects of it can control my moods and happiness. I felt ridiculous and was totally freaking out/overreacting and I knew it! However, no matter h
  9. Just wondering generally how long you guys took to see improvement in severe acne. My son is coming to end end of week 5 and while it might not be worse, it's not much better. I have read the 'what to expect' timeline, but i just wanted to hear from real people about how it was for them. Thanks so much!
  10. Hi I am not a new member on Acne.org. I used to write on here by scarsruinlife, for some reasons this website won't let me login and I have to use a new account. Okay, my journey so far, two huge rolling scars, 5 subcisions, 8 self saline injections, 2 needling sessions, Retin-A every night, daily exfoliation. Results? Very minimum. I recently did this needling sessions like a month ago for 4 weeks my scars appearance kept changing. On the fifth week they kind of seemed like there is 20% improv
  11. Hello all, Like many of you, I have scoured this board in search of scar treatments that will conclusively work. And like many of you, I have found it to be very frustrating to spend hours sifting through threads for people who have posted long term results. Those that do post their successes are few and far between. There are lots of people who post positive results a few days after their treatment and then never post again, leaving us wondering. I think if we had a consolidated thread of a
  12. I was on caveman, it was the best my skin had ever been. But then I decided to use products just for the fun of it. And my skin slowly but surely got breakouts, more than I had ever had. As the new year came in, I started eating more vegetables and working out and my skin went haywire. When I workout intensely, my skin worsens which is not uncommon so I've stopped and my skin cleared slightly. It's July now and I'm still figuring out what to do. Here's my second go of the caveman, about two yea
  13. Hi Everyone, New to the site (well as a member - i have been browsing for about 6 months). I wanted to post something that might give people a bit of hope. Now I know i never had really bad acne scarring, but i did have scars. I broke out badly about 4 years ago and i have attached two pictures of the scars it left. It took about 2 years, but in the end i had almost no scars left - and this improvement came from basically no treatment - just a few mild 30 - 50 % glycolic peels. I at
  14. Hi everyone, I need your expert advice! I have moderate acne and I have been using Acne.org Regimen for 15 weeks now. I know I have made a mistake in the first week of the regimen, I started too fast with the BP. On the 8th week of the regimen I also started to use AHA at night and it did me a lot of harm than good. I have passed the purging phase and clearing up and breaking out again and clearing up again and so on until now. I seldom wear make up (3 times max a month) and I currently
  15. From the album: ACCUTANE STEPS.

    I am on my Fourth week of Accutane :") it has definitely improved alot since i have been on it. very pleased just waiting to improve a bit more!
  16. Skin Condition My skin looks super good this morning! Minimial redness, no whiteheads, and few red bumps. By the time bedtime rolled around i had sweat throughout the day, and i had a few whiteheads My chin feels pretty smooth The acne on the right side of my mouth is going away. the area is just slightly redder than the rest of my face my forehead is actually pretty smooth! Only a few bumps Application This morning I
  17. Hi, I have been suffering from acne scarring since I was 13. I'm almost 22 now so it's almost been a decade with these little bastards. My acne scarring is pretty moderate maybe even severe and I have skin texture problems. yes it probably looks as bad it sounds lol. Anywho I tried TCA cross around 7-8 rounds but my last round of TCA cross with Howard Bargman in Toronto left me with 4 hummmmoooungousss craters .. You know ones that acne scars can't cause. They were HUGE right on my forehead
  18. Has anyone seen improvement to their scars even under angle light where once the scars stood out?
  19. Today is my 28th day on Accutane (Claravis) at 20mg/day. I am thrilled. I'm not sure the photos show any real improvement, because the damage I did by popping and picking when my acne was bad will probably take a long time to recede. But my cheeks feel so much smoother, and when I get a pimple, it heals so much faster! For the first 2.5 weeks, I didn't notice anything except for my skin actually seemed oilier than usual! I wondered if it was just because I started using gentle cleansers
  20. Ok so it's month 6 and I am so happy with my skin. It's never been this clear. I still have five months to go so I can not wait to see the end result. I still have red marks which I can handle and as I keep saying they should fade. Fresh faced pictures:
  21. Yes, it still looks pretty bad, but there is definite improvement from last week. I am very happy the tides appear to be turning. So this past week a kid at school got suspended for making fun of my son. He has been relentless about it and the guidance counselor and asst. principal got involved. Hopefully the example was set and my son won't be bullied anymore. Jackass. He actually told my son that he has Satan's c*m on his face! This coming from a 7th grader. Unreal. So the kid gets in scho
