  1. From the album: My Mini Acne Journey

    I've dealed with acne since I was 12 or 13 years old. I am now almost 21. Had a bad case my sophomore year and then it calmed down. After it became a steady battle with mild to moderate acne. My skin also scars extremely easy, so that was challenging. But by the end of 2013 and very beginning of this year, my skin was great! I had very little scarring and I rarely broke out. I felt like I was finally growing out of my acne phase and that it wouldn't strike me again. Man was I wrong. This
  2. 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
  3. I am hoping to get any answers from people who have personally had glycolic peels or microdermabrasion. I went to my dermatologist last week and he prescribed spiro and he suggested I get microdermabrasion and glycolic peels in their office because it is covered by my insurance. I have had another dermatologist recommend it but I was told I would have to get off trentinoin completely and I am not willing to do that. But my dermatologist told me last week that I would need to just not use the tre
  4. Hi all! Okay, I've been lurking on here for a long time now, usually in my varied attempts to find info about getting rid of my scars. So I finally decided to sign up. I'm 27 and had awful acne as a teen, and now I'm left with lots of small pitted scars, mainly on my cheeks and forehead. I hate them - they really wreck my confidence and look terrible in certain lighting. I'm determined to get rid of them. So far I've tried a TCA peel, Pixel laser treatment, microdermabrasion. I've heard of De
  5. So here's the story: I'm a 19 y/o sophomore in college. All through high school I had flawless skin, until I moved away my freshman year. I started breaking out horribly (not too many cysts, just HIGHLY inflamed pimples) and over the past year and a half, I've worked to where the acne is now pretty much finished. However, those adorable little hell marks all over my face and neck leave much to be desired. I feel like the main cause for my sudden outbreak may have simply been stress, i.e. the str
  6. Here is the tips to get rid of acne I found accidentally on internet and it works, and I want to share these useful tips. 1. Do your own research on the product’s way of how to treat adult acne or consult your dermatologists about your skincare products if those are safe enough to use. 2. Cosmetic procedures such as microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing are some of the usual procedures how to treat adult acne. Choose the clean and proper materials for the best result that you should go to
  7. I just purchased the PMD (Personal Microderm System). It looks so promising. I was a fool and decided that I should test it on my temples. The problem is, I was applying differin which is a retinol and I think I'm suppose to stop any retinoids 3 days prior to using the system. And to top it all off, I was too aggressive. So given my lack of adherance to the directions and just plain carelessness, my temples are now extremely red. And they have been this way for a day already. I applied neosporin
  8. Ok, so I have been reading this site for years and joined to see if anyone could give me some suggestions. So let me tell you a bit about my skin. I am in my 20s and have lived in a humid climate all of my life, so my skin used to be great and a touch oily. When I moved to Idaho, my skin went crazy! I all of a sudden had dozens of deep cysts embedded in my cheeks along my blush line and serious blackheads in my chin and lots of little bumps all over my forehead. It made me very self conscious.
  9. Hey guys, so if you don't know milia are those super annoying little flesh colored bumps on your skin. In reality they are clogged pores. I have tons of them and they are all slowly but SURELY turning into pimples! And when I say I have tons, I mean TONS. I wanna get rid of them before they keep turning into zits. Anyone have any ways to get rid of them? I was told to get the Olay Regernerist Microdermabrasion Kit but I am weary of running out and spending over 20 bucks on it if it won't work.
  10. Can someone please help me identify my scars and give me some advice for the best treatment for my skin? I was thinking about trying microdermabrasion or possibly a chemical peel. Not sure if either of those would improve my skin or not. I know they won't really help deep scars. I like that they are relatively low risk and somewhat affordable. Also my local Aveda spa offers some facials that sound promising: http://www.aveda.com/enter/stores/spa_services.tmpl I'm really not sure if I should b
  11. ****SKIN Soooo I get microdermabrasion and a chemical peel. I end up with a big red patch on my right cheek bone. The red patch turns dark, almost brown. And now my skin is peeling. And over the dark patch is just a layer of hard, dry skin. My makeup won't even sit right on it. No matter what I do, I never win. I hate my skin and it hates me. And I think I might just give up and let it be pimply, or dry, or however the hell else its wants to be, and just go out without makeup and say screw it.
  12. 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
  13. DAY 1 Hi everyone! English is not my native language, so please bear with me while I'm making mistakes. I'm 30 years old and have had the problem of compulsive face picking for over 20 years. After watching nichibeicafe's confessional videos and reading this forum for the first time just yesterday I decided to stop picking at my face. I was really impressed at nichibeicafe's progress, found her very charming and somehow started thinking that I could do it too. I feel so incredibly inspired. I
  14. I've purchased a couple of at home microdermabrasion creams including the one from the Skinn line. It is recommended to splash your face with warm water first and then massage the cream for a few minutes into the skin to exfoliate. My question is, has anyone ever massaged these creams on dry skin for an extended period of time? I read a review on another site where a guy vigorously massaged Neutrogena's Microdermabrasion treatment on his dry skin (where the scars were) for 15 - 20 minutes. He s

  16. Hi My skin is oily but sensitive and prone to spots and PIH (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation). I've tried so many products to get rid of spots and marks, BP - made matters worse; chinese medicine, worse still, microdermabrasion - removed some marks but spots were terrible A few weeks ago I decided to try Health Aid Vitamin A cream, I use it in the mornings and use the Health Aid 50,000 IU Vitamin E oil at night - SUPERB! My skin is getting smoother and softer with no breakouts as such on
  17. Ok I dun wanna blow my own horn but really this has got to be the only acne antibiotics that has worked for me (I have used Differin but its just bu&lsh*t!) So i been using it for the past 2 months and all my acne has gone...zero...zilch juz not there anymore But ive has a few Microdermabrasions too and it really did help! My pores got smaller, the acne acarring condtion improved a lot anyone else who've had success with Minocycline
  18. Hey Guys Ill try to keep this short.. Okay so I have been using Proactiv for 9 years and it has always worked for me.. I know some of you are pretty anti proactiv..but this has been the only solution for my acne. If I stop using it.. I break out like mad. So just recently in the past 2 months I started doing Microdermabrasion. I have no complaints about this it made me face feel great... however, stupid me started using a different skin care line (one she recommended)..well after about 2 weeks
  19. Hey guys! I am new here. I have a few questions. About two years ago I had a really bad breakout. Now, I do not break out but I have left over red marks and scars I am so embarrassed. Now that it is summer I still try to stay out of the sun and water as much as I can because I don't want anyone to see the real me. I was wondering, has any one ever tried at home microdermabrasions or chemical peels? Which one is more benefical with faster results? Also what can you recomeend for me? Thank you gu
  20. i am so depressed and tired of looking at my face, wanting to pull all of my hair out and go under a rock and never come out. I have decided to save up for a surgical treatment.. i will definitely avoid lasers since they make scars worst. I want to try microdermabrasion or something. I am using these glycolic peel pads and they are making me break out like crazy. Been using them every other night for at least 3 weeks now ..cant see any improvements. I have taken tazorac for 9 to 10 months now an
  21. I just wanted to give a little info on Micros just in case some one is interested in gettin the procedure. First things first try and stay away from spas, try medical offices or laser centers. That being said lets begin. Red marks or PIH are almost as bad as acne itself, Microderm does fade them away completely. I had a series of 9, the problem is that whatever acne you get during the process just prolongs your treatments. It takes about 4 microderms for you to feel like the spot is gone or
  22. Hi!! I'm new to this forum and basically i think that only people who are currently going through this can really understand. I'm 21 years old and I started having acne at 17. I was left with some scarring, scarred pores and pigmentation. Did a lot of microdermabrasions and they did minimize the scarring, I was acne free and could barely see any scars for a year. I decided to try something called the "jet peel" which its basically a microdermabrasion but with water, its like pressure washing
  23. Soo....I went to a D.O. for an isolaz consultation. He told me that isolaz is for people with "pussy" pimples which I do not have. I do however have red marks and indentations...He didn't call it indentations though, I forgot the word he used. He reccomended microdermbrasion treatments every two weeks. So my first treatment is Friday.... I guess I'll let you know how it goes. Did anyone here have it done. There are a lot of mixed reviews.
  24. Okay everyone so since I last logged on here my skin has improved dramatically! I'm very happy to say i only have 2 or 3 pimples, and they're more like red bumps on my skin. BUT i'm left with really bad red marks. What i started doing to clear my skin was I cut out fast food. Though i did cheat and eat McDonalds and chocolate last week :/ But regardless i have not eaten it like i used to before this big change in my diet. ALSO, i've been drinking 2 cups of green tea a day. Im serious this stuff
  25. I learned the hard way. I have struggled with cystic and nodular acne all my life but for the most part had been fortunate in that the scarring was very minimal until about 6 months ago. I first started using tweezers on my clogged pores after going to the dermatologist around 6 months ago to get microdermabrasion done for my hyperpigmentation. After each procedure the esthetician performed "extraction" on my face to remove the clogged pores. She used a metal rod of some sort that eventual
