  1. Hey everyone! It's been about 3 years since my last post and I must say my face is looking way better! I get small breakouts here and there but I haven't had any full blown painful as hell clusters in ages! I mostly owe that too being very strict with my face cleaning habits and the products I use. Sadly I still haven't found the perfect face wash, toner and moisturizer system but I make do with the random ones I purchase. I use the Mia 2 now and it really helps get every bit of makeup off my
  2. 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
  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. have any of you guys had microdermabrasion done? if so, how were the results? what kind of scars did you have?
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. What is the difference between dermabrasion and microdermabrasion? Some people refer to microdermabrasion as dermabrasion. Isn't dermabrasion different?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. :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
  13. 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!
  14. 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. ({|= Thanks so much. 1991: dermabrasion 1992: dermabrasion 1993: dermabrasion 1993: tissue from behind ear put in scar (three areas) 1995: spot dermabrasion 1997: full face laser resurfacing...big mistake =; 2000: microdermabrasion (series of 10 treatments) Current: vinegar method, ju
  15. 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.
  16. 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...
  17. A person told me that they went to the Derm and that they said there is something you can get from the health food store that is like microdermabrasion but not as strong and you can get it at health/natural food type places
  18. Has anyone had this done before? I was reading on a website that the results of microdermabrasion might be more dramatic if one preceded the microdermabrasion with one or more glycolic acid peels.
  19. Hey guys, I would like to hear your experience with popping a pimple and the effect it has. I have just started doing the regime about a week ago... I had pretty bad acne in college which was only subdued with accutane and benzamycin. My acne is resistent to practically every antibiotic I have used. Well, I had the situation well under control for over 5 years, then I went to do microdermabrasions to help with scaring. But the 4th one caused a breakout. I'm guessing it's either the so
  20. Morning: Wash with C&C Blackhead Clearing Scrub and Continuous Control Acne Cleanser Apply BP Eucerin facial lotion 4g B5 Three times a week I use the tape deal to clean pores/dead skin before applying BP 3g B5 with lunch Night: Wash with C&C products again Apply Mandelic Serum Apply Aloe Vera 3g B5 Twice a week I do an at-home microdermabrasion Is this too much? I used the Botchla method with success, and I'm making a push to completely clear myself up.
  21. ](*,) I've been talking to this guy for awhile (almost 2 and a half years) and we're finally meeting in less than 2 weeks. The thing is, I have acne scars. What should I do? I don't know if they're really severe. I'm going to go get microdermabrasion soon and hopefully that will help a little. But the thing is, I'm scared he won't like me. You see, he tells me that I'm Beautiful but he hasn't seen my acne scars. Also, other people have complimented me on how cute I am as well (but I don'
  22. My acne has stopped totally, but I have a few scars on my right cheek, some are indents and some are elevated scars, I don't know what I should do. Would microdermabrasion sessions be a godd start? or maybe peels?
  23. Hello there....First of all thanks for all the support and courage you give us and information which you supply us. So first of all I am 19 years old who suffered acne.(and still does although much less than before).Altough acne bothers me and leaves red marks I don't really give them attention because acne goes it should in two years time and the ones i have fortunately are not scarring.(just red marks which fade with time). My question is the only thing that bothers me and gets me down
  24. Hey guys, Due to my last microdermabrasion I broke out and now have these red/brown spots. I think the red spots are healing spots and brown ones are the left over. Now I want to get rid of 'em. Read some results about glycolic and lactic peels. I probably want to do spot treatments first, but can you guys recommend which one?
  25. I am a 42 yr. old white male with moderate acne scarring on one cheek. The scars are meduim deep ( boxcar of saucer shaped). Below I will list the treatments I have had done and the results. Dermabrasion: 15 yrs. ago: 20% improvement Deep Chemical peel: 10 yrs ago. Made surrounding skin look great but I detected no improvemnet for acne scars. Co2 Laser Surgery: 5 years ago. Again, great for overall skin, better texture and tone, minimal at best acne scar revision. Collagen injecti
