  1. Hi everyone! I’m a 22 year old female seeking acne scar treatment after having acne for 10+ years. For years I have hated myself and my skin and now I’m finally taking action. I'm currently seeing a dermatologist right now (Dr Davin Lim in Brisbane) and have my next laser treatment in APRIL/EARLY MAY (so really soon!) To date I've tried fraxel (to no avail), fully ablative laser resurfracing (erbium), fractional laser resurfacing (CO2 Core Laser) as well as filler/subcision. The reason for my po
  2. I have severe acne scarring, i have received 3 co2 smartxide dot laser (i dont know how deep) back in 2015 when i was 19, due to work and school i have ignored my scarsuntil now. I have decided 2018 will be the year i will get a bulk of tx done ( i know 100% improvemnt is not real so spare me that comment). Money is not the problem nor is time. Thankfully i have a well paying job where i interact with practically no one so being swollen is not a problem. I have about 6 months off from school, an
  3. Hi, so in the last year I've had a fully ablative co2 laser twice and dermapen 7 times. However, it's been exactly one year and things appear worse(attaching photos). The scars on the lower left of my cheek have filled in the most but the rest of the cheek, where before I didn't really see scars now look like almost raised scars and just more scars in general. I don't even know what else to do. Has this happened to anyone? Before after
  4. This is going to be a long post. A little background info, I have had acne since I was 10 years old, and I am turning 20 this year, finally with clear skin. I call the past 10 years the "decade of hell". I think we all encounter some kind of moment where we go, damn, I've had enough of this crap. And thus began my last ditch efforts to salvage my skin, which I am happy to say has finally become beautiful. Having lurked on this forum for years, I feel like its time for me to give bac
  5. Let me start out by saying I had acne for 16 years, from the ages of 11-27. That is in the past now but I'm left with horrible skin. Having acne for so long has left me with uneven skin tone - I'm talking HYPERpigmentation, HYPOpigmentation, red blotches and a few scars thrown in for good measure. I had Vbeam done recently and it hasn't done much. I looked terrible after the procedure - my cheeks were bubbled and swollen, I was covered in blood and I had that awful purpula that you get on hi
  6. K so I'm thinking of lasering the scars off my nose. BUT. I have dark skin. Probably like dark olive??? I'm not too sure. I just know I'm brown. I'm thinking of doing a mild laser like Erbium (my scarring isn't too deep so maybe it will still help) but I'm worried about the negative effects it may leave behind on my skin. I've heard that skin can lighten or darken, but that's about it. I have some questions Is there anything that can be done to lessen the risk of this? Is the darkening/lighte
  7. Hey all, I HATE my angry, red, ruddy complexion! Will laser safely take away my angry, red, ruddy complexion? I have had enough. Thanks
  8. (Skip to the middle where it says "importnat part" if you don't care to find out if we've tried similar things or have similar types skin, etc. and you just know you have hormonal stuff going on.)Hello, so I have been using acne.org products for a couple years, loved them, the do help, but it's expensive and time consuming, don't want to buy regular and travel size etc. My mom had deep, deep acne as a kid and still has scars at 53 as we know cystic acne can be genetic My acne is mostly on my chi
  9. Hi guys, I have done 4 MRF treatment and 1 CO2 laser treatment. But i cant see any noticeable results also in some lightning i think it look more worse than before. 1st Mrf treatment: Aug 2017 2nd MRF Treatment: Nov 2017 3rd MRF Treatment: Jan 2018 4th MRF treatment: April 2018 5th Fraxel CO2 treatment: 13th May 2018 Left most picture is the pre picture taken in a room with no sunlight Top right is the pic after 3 MRF treatmemt taken in room with direct sunlight on face Bo
  10. Exactly 1 month has passed since my Deep Fx treatment. My esthetician had offered to treat me with Infini for a low price--$700 discounted from $1300. He says microneedling will allow me to see results quicker so that I dont have to wait the 6 months required for Deep Fx. Microneedling isn't permanent, he says, so by the time the results from Infini wear off, my skin will be fully recovered from Deep Fx. Thing is, I don't trust my esthician. He doesn't care about my skin and treating it proper
  11. Can anyone tell me what kind these acne scars are? Would palomar icon help? And lastly any reconmended doctters in Alaksa or even the Canada and down 48 states in the us?
  12. Been looking in to low dose accutane dosing WITH lasers for acne scarring and according to studies it's not as dangerous as people believe! What are your opinions? I'm thinking about running 20mg a week for maintenance while undergoing lasers. Studies below https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/23336106/ "Acne and acne scars can be treated more effectively by concomitant use of an infrared fractional laser with low-dose isotretinoin with reduced MTZ densities. Most patients showed more than
  13. Hearing such discouraging stories about treating scars on the nose, I think I might have to resort to lasers for my nose. I don't know much about them, and my research hasn't yielded very informative anecdotes about people who've actually done it. a) Which laser would have the best effect on reducing/removing my scars? b) Which laser is safest for darker skin? And if my skin does darken, is there a way to lighten it back up? c) What is the approximate cost of getting just my nose or half o
  14. I don't know what to believe. I have had 4 pixel laser treatments over the past 2 years. I have never noticed any negative side effects (other than the week it takes to recover). However, after reading all of the hundreds of negative reviews "laser ruined my face," "after laser I noticed more scarring and indents that weren't there before" I am absolutely terrified. It never occurred to me that the laser could have damaged my face, caused orange peel texture, indents, more scarring,etc. But
