  1. In a bit of a dilemma dealing with skin issues… I might be one of the guys that has to go through an Accutane cycle once a year to remain clear, so 2 weeks ago, started taking 60mg daily, with a 120mg dose one of those days of the week (to accelerate the process—total broscience). In the meantime, trying to figure out how else my flare-ups/irritation/inflammation can be minimized…. Maybe I just have overactive sebaceous glands, which Accutane uniquely treats and is very effective at minimiz
  2. My doctor is going to use a C02 laser after performing my second subcision next week. Is C02 Laser considered an old type of laser that is not as effective as newer lasers? Should I reconsider? I hope someone knowledgeable can respond ASAP. Thanks

  4. Hi! I do have a mixture of rolling and box scar with it seems to be like blue pigmentation on my temple with my other acne scars that are about almost 4 yrs old now. I have been doing microneedling (at home) for about 2 yrs, not on a regular basis tho. My doctor have advised me to undergo IPL + Resurfx but I am adamant about the treatment, one because it's $600/session and two I'm not sure if he's giving me the right treatment for my scar. He barely even touched my face too. I'm gonna attach som
  5. Anyone here have any experience with the M22 ResurFX nonablative laser for acne scarring? I have mild shallow boxcars and icepick scars on my cheeks and forehead I'd like to reduce. Treatments cost about $400/session and require 3-4 sessions. Please share with me your negative or positive stories! TIA
  6. So I had a big cyst and it left a hole that has been slooooowly healing. I'm about 5 or 6 weeks into healing now. There is still redness and even a little sensitivity at the center (it is closed)...the indentation is gradually rising, but I'm not sure if it's going to make it all the way (?). Staring "atrophy" right in the face. No pun intended... In the case it doesn't and I'm left with some sort of rolling indentation, I've been reading up on my options to treat. I've seen a number of posts
  7. I have a red/pink mark from a cystic pimple above my lip which resolved about 3 months ago. The color of the "scar", or PIE as I think it is, is about the same color as my lip. There is a small indented scar near where the center of the pimple used to be, but I'm most concerned about the redness surrounding that area, which is quite visible in some lighting, especially when I am smiling. I have been reading a ton online about PIE and options for treatment, and I'm expecting that this will im
  8. I have this potentially great idea that I have not tried yet. Burning the edges/borders of boxcar/rolling acne scars!! Has anyone tried doing this? I have moderate acne scars (mainly small to medium sized boxcar scars) and when I got my laser treatment done a few years ago, the plastic surgeon told me next time he can go in with the laser and selectively burn off the edges of the larger scars making the overall scar look smoother. This makes sense because your scars have lower floors and rai
  9. So this idea of AFTERCARE came up in another thread. And thanks to @beautifulambition and others for the encouragement to start this thread. Anyway, there appears to be a lot of posters in recent months who have confessed to getting their scars sliced (subcision), poked (microneedling), zapped (laser), or poked and zapped (Infini) as well as burned (all things acid). There's endless debate about what treatment is considered optimal for what types of scar. However, there's not enough dialogue abo
  10. Well well well, here I am. Back again. Back in the early 00s this community gave me so much support. I thought I would come back and give an update. Back then I was known as "Guardedly Optimistic" now i'm "Guardedly Optimistic 2017" This is the thing, it's a journey. My skin is still very damaged; mostly visible under harsh over head lighting. But...and get this...I ended up pursuing my dream of being an actor and filmmaker! Yes, acne and scars and insecurities and all that crap was not goin
  11. 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;
  12. What angers me most about acne is all the missed opportunities it caused me to have during my teen years that I will never get back. I had no friends and never did anything exciting as a teen because I lived in isolation not by choice. I'm 21 now and have pretty much clear skin and I feel like I'm years behind everyone else because it socially stunted me and it's hard to start a social life from scratch as you get older.
  13. Hey, Im really bothered by My scars on My temples. Ive had Two dermastamp sessions done but No Idea what to do now... those treatments were about 1-2 years ago. went to a dermatologist couple weeks ago and I had questions regarding fillers and if it would help. He said that the skin is damaged and that the scars aren't deep enough on my temples. he recommended laser. please help. hope the picture is good enough to show what I mean
  14. What should I do??? Is my life ruined???? Is there anyway I can have the scars go away???
  15. Hey Has anyone tried this?? How is it?? I'm considering it for getting rid of my many horrible big red marks left from acne. It's like a combination of Intense Pulsed Light and PhotoFacial. It's $500 Canadian a treatment, or 5 for $1800. I'd need 5-10.....got a test patch done and it seems ok. I can't find much info on it! ANY help would be really appreciated!!! Thanks!
  16. Anyone tried this laser out? My doctor just got this one in and used it to treat some steroid rosacea I had developed (due to an overuse of steroid cortizones, due to a rash I developed, due to an overuse of creams.... it's a never ending cycle) It seems to be working. I think its main purpose is to reduce redness, but we'll see what it does for my scarring. Things are looking up... :D/
  17. I went to see the derm again and have decided that I will do non-ablative laser resurfacing. He tells me that the newest one they have is the CoolGlide laser. Has anyone heard about this and know how it compares to other ones like CoolTouch? He says I will probably need 5 to 6 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart. He also said that they are going to be artecoll this summer. So I'm assuming it's been FDA approved, finally. I might have Artecoll injections after I'm done with the laser to fill any
  18. The last couple of days I have come to the conclusion that I will be Forever Alone forever. I'm too late in the dating game and will never marry and barely have a social life all thanks to acne and some other personal issues I had when I was younger. Now I'm just trying to figure out how to accept this and be content while seeing happy clear skinned people everywhere. Some of us are just cursed.
  19. Hi guys, So I consulted a dermatologist regarding my acne scars and she recommended 3 sessions of Scarlet RF. When I told her I only heard about Infini RF, she told me that they are basically the same thing made by different brands. So my question is, is Scarlet RF as effective as Infini RF for pitted acne scars? She also told me that the treatments will be done by a beauty aesthetician, not by her. I am also worried about that. Does this machine require good technical skills to yield good re
  20. Hi all, I've been doing this so long (discussing and stressing about my skin) and it's nice yet sad to see others going through pain that only we understand. I am a 26-year-old female, and I've been doing the dermatologist's "trial-and-error" thing since I was 14. My skin is not extremely bad, I am just a perfectionist who won't settle. My question ... I have had two separate courses of Accutane with great results for about 6 months following the end of the treatment. Then it's just back to s
  21. Has anyone tried the CoolGlide Laser? I am probably going to go with this one, since the derm told me the other one they got is the CoolTouch. He said that the CoolGlide Laser allows them more control over the procedure than previous non-ablative lasers. I haven't been able to find any real pics online from individuals who had CoolGlide done and was hoping someone could share their experience.
  22. Hi, i have two sessions (separated in 15 days) of N-Lite Laser in my scars, and i have to say that i saw differences in the skin, lower scars, but not so much like i was waiting. It was a lot of expensive too. Anybody have experiencies with this laser? (goods/bad) please post. Can i have another two sessions in one year? because i think that if i repeat the process it will decrease another time scars. thanks
  23. I was planning to have laser resurfacing soon until I came to this site. I did not realize that so many people were having such bad side effects from laser. I could not imagine having this done to make my skin look better and having it scarred worse and getting orange peel surface and large pores and so on. I'm now undecided if this is the right thing for me to do. From reading the message board, if I recall correctly, Maya, Lola, Gus, and Tamara had significant improvement. It would be grea
  24. Hi, i have some red marks from acne on my cheeks. I also have a couple of thread veins on my nose, diffuse reddness on the nose tip and at the 2 edges of the nose. Would a vascular beam help? for anyone that has had a vascular laser, what did you think of it, what laser and how successful was it for red acne scars????
  25. Hello All, I've tried Smoothbeam on a few raised scars and it doesn't seem to have helped. Granted, I've only had 2 SB sessions to date, but I fear I may be wasting my money! For those who have raisedd scars (I think it's called hypertrophic scar), what do you use that has helped? I have tried those silicone sheets sold in the pharmacy but they didn't do anything for me. I've also tried Mederma which didn't work either. I've had these scars for almost 10 years now! I've also tried CO2
