  1. A few years ago, I was told by my dermatologist that I needed Kenalog injected on each and every single keloid scar spot on my chest. I was nervous at first because I have a very low tolerance in pain. After a few months of injections once a month, I got sick and tired of it. I realized I was just simply unable to handle the needle pain of each injection. I know I'm a grown man but every single injected spot feels like a knife stabbing my chest. It just hurts really badly. I asked the dermato
  2. Has anyone tried this method of TCA cross? Think this works better than other methods (ex. using a toothpick)? For the DIYs what method do you use? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxJMnWYV2mE What size (gauge) needle do you think this is? Perhaps smaller would be better/safer (especially for scarred pores). Any amazon links? Thanks!
  3. Ok so I had a pimple and I popped like I normally do, and I wasn't sure if I had gotten everything out so I got a needle and started stabbing it looking for a whitehead and could find anything so I figured I got all of it, but in the process of looking I created a pretty big hole in the pimple with ripped skin and I was really hoping I would start bleeding so that I knew for sure it would heal but it never did, I put vitamin e and Neosporin on it and over night it sealed up but it doesn't look l
  4. Hi, I bought tattoo needles, but they were too thick and can't use them. I have many many scars on my face, but big white scars that look really ugly about ten. I don't want to puncture healthy tissue that is left and that is why I'm going to single needle instead of dermarolling. I think I would choose 1.5mm needles to start with. The diabetes needles are much longer, so how can I get them to only 1.5mm deep? Or should I use another kind of needles? And what is the optimal width of the need

  6. Should You Pop Cystic Acne?

    Cystic acne, also called nodulocystic acne, consists of large, severe lesions called nodules and/or cysts. This type of acne should never be popped because it can damage the skin and make the acne lesion worse. If performed correctly, other, less severe acne lesions can be popped, but popping nodulocystic acne results in more redness, swelling, pain, and scarring. Nodules: Nodules are large (over 5mm in diameter), red, hard, painful lesions that form deep within the skin and...
  7. Hi I am new to these forums but I have been here a few times. I was really confused about all the information regarding derma rollers, and well in needling in general and improvement in specific scar types. I believe I was reading that it has only been studied (vastly understudied yet hope inspiring) but mainly it improve hypertrophic/keloid type raised scars. But where does that leave other ice pick indention scars? And is the science behind collagen stimulation even remotely feasible? I want t
  8. Good day everyone! I'm back on tack. I used to visit this site, maybe a year ago or 2. I have a nose scar on thel eft side of my nose, upper nostrils. I used to apply TCA cross, would only cause swelling and would eventually go back to its original size. I tried needling it with 0.23mm micro needle, I thought it was healing, but then it again went back to original size. I do not know if I should still continue with needling since I learned that it is very dangerous to do needling on nose.
