  1. Check out the photos of my current acne scarring. Would needling result in an effective (and cost effective) improvement in my scars? I have done some research on derma rolling, the DermaPen and the new e-DermaStamp (from the original derma roller company). I am leaning towards booking an appointment for an e-dermastamp treatment because I have read several articles about DermaPen and how it can cause micro-tearing. What are your thoughts on this? My story: I had severe acne which was cured
  2. Over the last few years I've been dealing with mild acne issues, it could get pretty bad at sometimes but its pretty consistent. I tried other products such as the basic over the counter products, Proactiv, and Skin ID and a few antibiotics and benzaclin. I ran into this site and product by chance, originally I was pretty stoked on the idea of it. I just don't believe the hype and the cult following, there is no one size fits all as this leads you to believe. Me personally it didn't work much
  3. I am a 29 year old female and have always suffered with a mild acne on and off since I was at school, granted this was a lot worse when I was younger. However I have constantly battled with break outs and oily skin. Ive tried all sorts to cure the problem namely, anti-biotics, which gave me a temporary fix and numerous potions and lotions, I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on facials. I had been to the GP a number of times, every time they have given me something new to try. Never once a
  4. It's radical diets; no dairy, no wheat, gluten, yeast, starch, sugar or sweet, only every fruit and vegetable under the sun, tick, tick, done, another day, a new change, desolate hope, a tightening rope. Changed pillow cases, topical traces, water by the barrel loads, exercise, no exercise, sweat is a threat, ice blocks, door locks, natural lemon, natural honey, toothpaste and Gran's old tricks. Still no fix. Facial cleansers from China, facial cleansers from the States, ridiculous rates, cleans
  5. I bet most of you can relate to the story I've described below. Every day is the same for me. I’m a successful professional living in London. I’m 26 years old and instead of being happy, I’m depressed and want to disappear from this world. Sorry if it’s too long. I wake up and my heart is raising, I can actually feel the anxiety that is starting to fill my body. Time to wake up, time to look in the mirror. I’m half asleep, can barely see myself but I’m looking very closely. The horror start
  6. Hello acne.org, I have looked to this site for comfort and answers many times on and off throughout the years. I know that if anyone does take the time to read this post, it may just sound all too familiar - the same way that crappy radio station overplays the latest Justin Bieber song, yet you're forced to listen to because you forgot the aux/usb cable to plug in your ipod. Well, I'm just really looking for a channel to vent my stress and frustrations, so I thank you in advance if you're go
  7. Hello, I'm 15 years old (male) and had have acne for about 1 1/2 years now. It started to get worse in the beginning of freshman year (sophomore now). I play soccer in the fall and due to the sweat and the sun as well as the stress in school, I broke out. After a few months in the season when it started to get colder I went to a dermatologist. She perscribed a few medicines: Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide Gel (1.2%/5%), Tretinoin Cream USP (.025%) for the topicals and a Doxycycli
