  1. Our mothers always tell us not to eat so much nuts if we want to avoid an acne outbreak. Although we often comply with what our moms say, we often think to ourselves if any of these old wives' tales are actually true. Well, the truth is that studies have shown that there is very little correlation between acne outbreak and nut consumption. We speak to Dr. Siew Tuck Wah from Radium Medical Aesthetics as he tells us more about how acne is formed and if nuts really cause acne outbreak. Wh
  2. Hey guys, I am VERY self concious about my scars. I work in customer service, so i ALWAYS feel people are just looking at them. And it always makes me look down, and avoid at looking people in the eye. Its very disheartening to me. I had severe acne for 10 ish years. So I just wanted to know, what type of scars do you see? And what would you treatment do you think would be most beneficial? I went to a plastic surgereon and he recommended either Fillers, Excision, dermabrasion, or lasers. Wha
  3. Our skin weighs about 8 pounds, with a total surface area of about 22 square feet. It does not come as a surprise that it is the largest and arguably one of the most important organs of our body. Our skin is waterproof, shielding us from extreme weather conditions, and keeping out harmful chemicals and pollutants out of our body. Although the skin sounds like an invincible shield that protects us from harm, it is also very vulnerable. A minor injury can make a big difference in how it looks
  4. Hi everyone, I have been trolling about on this site for years and have never thought to post anything, however after not finding many stories about NLite treatment (and the few I did find being negative) I thought I'd post about my treatment which starts tomorrow. I have suffered with acne for more than 10 years. I'm not 27 and it just gets worse. I have been on tetracycline, lymecycline, tried so many topical creams and cleansers and proactive, have tried taking zinc supplements. Nothing
  5. Hello, So I finally found a place to discuss ssomething that has been bothering me for years. I am 27 year old male living in Bangalore and I ve had acne since high school. Although now I dont get acne anymore my face is still a reminder of my struggle with acne. Over time the scars have become permanent . I mostly have ice pick scars with pigmentation. I am entering a new phase in my life and feel its time I get rid of them. I was searching for good dermatologists but could no
  6. 27 years old and still struggling with acne. I thought I had been saved, rescued by the Mirena IUD for two years. Not a spot on my face but then the IUD had to go and when it did the acne came back with a vengence. I feel as though I have attempted everything from washes to antibiotics, even quit washing my face for a week- not because I was making an attempt at 'the caveman regimen' but because I had given up. Fraught with apathy for a week until the acne became so out of control I couldn't sta
  7. Howdy! So let me fill you in really quickly on my acne journey, a real journey of trial and error! I started getting acne when I was about 12/13. It was never too bad but as I got a little older it started getting worse and began to bother me. When I was 16, I went to my GP about it and he prescribed me Dianette (contraceptive pill). This surprisingly worked so well but I think I took it for granted looking back now. I always had the odd spot or 3 but my skin became the least of my worries a
  8. Hi guys this is my first post on this website so bare with me. I have had a really rough senior year so far due to acne. Over the summer my acne was literally not existent. I had been on antibiotics (doxycycline), and it cleared me up completely to the point where my dermatologist took my off it. You might think well that's the problem right there, you went off the meds. Well I went off the meds in like June and my face was fantastic until November. I thought it was smooth sailing and i wouldn'
  9. Has anyone heard of the F.A.S.T. (Focal Acne Scar Treatment) technique for treating acne scars? I came across this article tonight while reading the news and I had not heard of this specific type of laser. Anyone had this type of laser treatment? http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/02/24/new-procedure-gets-rid-acne-scars-in-one-treatment/?intcmp=features
  10. I've been fighting acne for most of my life. I even went on Accutane and and did it for 6 months. I've been off accutane for 2 years now. After accutane my acne came back but currently it's gotten better. I now only have moderate acne, but I have acne scarring that I would like to get rid of. I think the accutane really changed my skin. My skin feels very weak and thin. Especially during the day my skin feels tight by the afternoon even though I apply lotion in the mornings. I also feel that my
  11. Alsalam Alaikom and Hello Everyone. My name is Yousif, I am 30 years old Sudanese, and I am living in Dubai. Skin Description: - medium dark skin - Oily Acne started to appear on my face when I was 16 years. It started as big pimples around my nose and sometimes on the bottom of my jaw and normally they were painful. I used to pop them and try to get this annoying and ugly oil from inside. I have not used anything for the acne until I stumbled upon this website and I felt comfortable ab
  12. I've been looking at all the success stories of people on Accutane and I am crying my eyes out when I think about the trade off from the side effects. I've been to about 20 dermatologists since I was 15, I've spent 9 years on tretinoin and retin-A meds, and now that I am 24 I have finally found someone who mentioned Accutane. I've been told by dermatologists: "It's probably just hormonal, birth control will work for you," "You shouldn't worry about it so much, those who really care about you
  13. Hello, I am 20 years old and have been suffering with bad skin for almost two years now. When I was younger I had clear skin and then as soon as I turned 18 it went down hill from there. I have lots of spots that don't often come to heads, they seem more like little bumps and my skin is extremely red. Past spots have also left loads of horrible red scarring and it has got to the point where I feel like I have tried so much and nothing is making it better. If anything it seems to be getting w
  14. Alright so my name's Joaquin, Senior in high school, and I'm 17 years of age. I have suffered from acne ever since I was 11 years old. It's always been a struggle of mine for years. Especially during all the times in attending school. By Junior year of high school I started seeing a dermatologist for a while and he would give me pills/medications to take for my acne, but It just wouldn't do it, until I went on a light cycle of Accutane for about 5 months. I still was getting breakouts so I had t
  15. Hello, I had really bad acne in my early 20s which was treated with Tazorac. This treatment work wonderfully for my type of acne, however I was left with moderate to severe scars on my face. I have always wanted to get these scars removed but it wasn't until now that I finally decided to take initiative. The first dermatologist I consulted recommend a combination of things. She said that I would only be able to see a difference in my skin if I combined different procedures. She recommended subci
  16. Hi, I am 16 years old and I have mild to moderate acne. I get a breakout maybe once every two or three weeks, but it is not my breakouts I am most concerned about. I rarely get cystic acne, but about a year ago I got a patch of nasty cystic acne on my cheek that has left my whole right cheek hyper-pigmented red and a medium sized-boxcar scar on my the bottom half of my cheek. This scar and discoloration is the bane of my existence, and my dermatologist recommended Levutan Blu-U treatment for my
