  1. Hi, all. Please respond if you had fractional ablative resurfacing to treat acne scars If you had minimal results or adverse effects, please mention whether you went to an experienced doctor and severity/type of scars. I am seeing conflicting reviews on these lasers. I am thinking of asking for a test spot on my chin to see how my skin responds. I will not be bargain shopping for this treatment. I will only take a chance with a very experienced doctor but I know my olive, Fitzpatrick type III-I
  2. hello board this is Rene. I am writing because i wanted to maybe give some information about things that may help lessen cystic acne. I dont know much about cause of cystic acne aside from interrelationship between hormones skin type stuff like that. But here is something interesting. Maybe it help maybe not... So your face is oily or you have acne partly because of hormones right?? hormones are regulated by endocrine system. if somethings wrongs with endocrine system that could cause im
  3. Dear Friends, I am 35 years old Indian so I have a brown skin but my skin is not an average Indian skin, as in I have a little fairer skin compared to an average Indian Skin. I have been having Acne Scars since my Teens. I have a very, very sensitive skin. I also have Rosacea which keeps aggrevating on and off. Like I have days when it is very intense and days when it is absolutely not visible. I have had almost all sorts of treatments so far to elevate the scars on my cheeks from Dermabrasi
  4. Hi. I'm a 40 year old, caucasian guy. My acne scarring is somewhat unique in that I suffered most of it as an infant. I had severe acne as a newborn that caused box car scarring on my cheeks. Teenage acne gave me a few more scars, but in general they weren't as deep. Finally, as I've gotten older, I've gotten big pores on my forehead, cheeks and nose, as well as some small bumps which have been diagnosed as sebacious hyperplasia. Three years ago I had 5 Fraxel sessions, followed up with 3 times
  5. Okay,I do mild peels twice a month but I'm wanting something really strong. Something that's going leave my face crusty and swollen for a week or two. NOT a phenol peel. More like the upper concentrations of TCA and whatnot. However,I am having trouble locating a place around Seattle Washington.Tons of places do chemical peels here,but it's mainly just weak glycolic peels. I want the bigger stuff! I've done tons of internet searches and am not having much luck...I seem to fail at the internet.
  6. I've been trying to find a water soluble antibacterial/antifungal to use in my homemade toner... but have gotten kind of stuck. I know both clove and oregano make great mouthwashes and antibacterial/antifungal teas... could the tea be used as the base of a toner, like green tea often is? Then again, I know the active principles of cloves and oregano are phenols like eugenol, thymol, and carvacrol... which theoretically shouldn't disperse well in the water anyway Any thoughts?
  7. Hi everyone, I've noticed an interesting thing over the past few months and I'm not sure if there's a correlation but here it goes: Bottled water/juice/liquid = acne and irritation I noticed that when ever I was drinking water from the water cooler at work or just bottled water, my skin would get irritated a few hours later. I'm not sure if this is due to the chemicals in the plastics (bisphenol A) or the chlorine. But since then I've been drinking strictly tap water stored in glass bottles
  8. This is my first post, so I'm going to give a short summary about how acne has affected me. I am a 15-year-old male who is a sophomore in high school. I have always been short for my age (ain't late puberty a bitch) and I still am kind of short, but I'm catching up. Near the beginning of freshman year, I must have developed acne. I know for sure that I never had it before this, and even in my freshman photo I still have clear skin. Since then, I have dealt with increasingly bad acne, that has be
  9. Hi everyone. I have moderate type 1 and 2 rosacea and I have found a regimen that is working for me. I dont know if it will help anyone else but I wanted to share it anyway. Here is the regimen and the reasoning behind it. MORNING **on the outside** Wash with cetiphil cleanser wait for skin to dry completely then moisturize with Aveeno Daily Moisturizer Ultracalming SPF15 **on the inside** With Breakfast Take 1 target brand mens daily multi vitamin with Lycopene and two 150mg green tea e
  10. Hi...this is my first post. I am flying in to see Dr. Rullan tomorrow. Has anyone seen him? I have seen the before/after pictures from his phenol peels, and the results look incredible. Too good to be true?
  11. Ive been on the DKR for awhile. I ran out of cleanser so I decided to use what I used to, Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control power-foam wash. It has .5% SA (ingredients at the bottom of this post for the curious). Before on the DKR (with dan's cleanser), I would get a random cyst on my chin or middle of eyebrows area every now and then (oily T area). When I perform the DKR with the neutrogena cleanser, I don't get cysts (it has been this way for about 3 weeks almost a month). The only d
  12. When it comes to boxcar scars and rolling scars they only treatment that makes sense to me is subcision. Subcision is one type of needling. Many of the people here are talking about CID- collagen induction therapy -when they talk of needling. Subsicion is done by holding the skin tight and breaking the tethers of the scar ( I believe these are strands that hold the scar to the dermis.) If these strands are not broken then the scar simply becomes more noticeable as you age because skin laxity o

While the polyphenols in green tea are credited with preventing heart disease and cancer, it seems they can cause liver and kidney damage if consumed in very large quantities, a review of studies into the toxicity of polyphenols has shown.

    Right now I am so depressed and isologen is the only treatment I would try but why is it taking so long. I thought by this summer it was going to be approved. I have been on their website and read they had some setbacks with the first trial according to them due to injector technique. So they started new trials. I believe I had volume loss on top of further acne scarring with the exoderm phenol and cortisone shots done at the same time. I have been reading about cortisone atrophy and wonder if
  15. Interesting. I received my daily newsletter from RealAge (all about maintaing good health) and one of the articles was about how green tea may help with overall skin and wound healing. Take a look: http://www.realage.com/news_features/tip.a...d=17867&#MI It also has instructions on how to apply etc. Cheers.
  16. I used to take a multivitamin a long time ago and after a while, my face broke out. That was a long time ago, but when I think about it, I wish I exactly knew what broke me out. If I knew what was in the multivitamin was breaking me out, I could at least take the other vitamins seperately to help improve my skin and general health. The multivitamin I took was called Skinvantage, but it was basicly a multivitamin. After that break out, a year later I tried Centrum. it didn't have the exact exa
  17. Interesting article for those into in herbal treatments. It includes treatments for various skin conditions, including acne. I posted this under the research section, but it didn't get too many hits, so I thought I'd repost it here. Herbal Therapy in Dermatology Monica K. Bedi, MD; Philip D. Shenefelt, MD Arch Dermatol. 2002;138:232-242. ABSTRACT Herbal therapy is becoming increasingly popular among patients and physicians. Many herbal preparations are marketed to the public for various
  18. for example this: Alpha Hydroxy Chemical Peels Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) are a group of acids that are often found in fruit, sour milk, sugar and other products processed through bio-fermentation. AHA's have an illustrious history in the cosmetic industry, as they are believed to be the first chemical peels used by doctors over the past decades. Topical formulations incorporate ACA's frequently used and prescribed by dermatologists, are also present in a wide variety of the skin care products a
  19. Hello all, I was offered a 50 or 70 percent TCA full face at a hospital, When I asked about exoderm the dr said a 70 percent would be almost the same as a phenol peel. I am very hestitant about paying the 5000 price excluding travel and hotel for an exoderm. I would be very upset if it doesnt work and probably more miserable with the debt. What do you guys think of peels with a strong TCA? I did two 20 percent peels with very minimal improvement. very confused right now, Dermabrasion, TCA, Exod

    well this is interesting

    Hey guys, Well i decided to ditch that derm and his TCA and go back to the australian laser clinic, on thursday i had an IPL treatment and my aesthetician [who i've been seeing for alomst 2 years] has given me the chance to become her little practical test for a new lineup of cosmdix peels. Its supposed to be a new type of timeless peel, mostly vitamin A derrivite and has been put under medical grade hence the tough restrictions on non-dermatolgist practioners. An aesthetician, in order to get
  21. Since there have been some questions about supplies in Taiwan, here are my experiences, no guarantees for completeness or correctness: The first thing to note is that most of the big international brands are not sold at all in Taiwan; don't ask me why, they simply don't get exported there. You will not find Clearasil or Oxy anywhere, no matter which product category. In most cases, it's not worth looking for the brands you know from North America or Europe. Don't waste your time. (I did and reg
  22. Got these today because they were buy 1, get 1 free, and I'd seen the 5 star review at drugstore.com. Has anyone tried them? Are they effective at improving your skin? I'm not expecting them to clear acne -- I rely on topicals for that anyways -- but I would like to even out my tone in general, especially some post-acne marks, and generally improve my skin. Here are the ingredients -- are there high enough levels to do what they're supposed to accomplish? I must admit I'm not that well-re
