    Week 1

    I was gonna simply go dairy free but since i dont eat that much meat and i have recently seen some animal videos i decided to try veganism for 6 months in hopes of results. so far no new break outs have been puting lemon juice on my skin every other day and it is glowing! i see my scars diminition already but its probably my imagination, its too soon:) i am taking a nutrition class in college so i am eating alot of vegitibles, beans, and tons of fruit. i am drinking about 10 glasses of wate
  2. So I am 18 and i still have some active acne but i am wondering if the marks on my face are indented scars or just pigmentation. I started useing differin 5 weeks ago for the acne, will that combat these marks, and if they are scars will differin even them out?
  3. Hi, so I've recently been able to clear my acne by using Epiduo. Now I'm left with scars that I would like to improve. They bother me every single day and I'm constantly worrying about them. It's partly a mental thing, I know, so I'm working on that. However, I would like to do what I can to start improving my scars. I've previously done two Matrix RF sessions and between break outs I've been microneedeling at home with a 0,5 mm stamp these past four months. I've seen a little improvement.
  4. hello everybody Im so confused about what to do with my scars and honestly Im so scare about the laser Im 30 years old my short history: 18 years old acne treatment: antibiotics, benzac gel 24 years old accutane 20 mg for 6 months 27 years old obagi full set 3 sections of photo laser, 2 quimical peels, 1 microdermobration 29 years old accutane 40 mg 1 year its been 6 months since i finish accutane my doctor say i can go a head with the fractional laser i did research, and most d
  5. Let me know if I need to be worried about scarring with this acne. I think I have it under control now, I just need to know if there will be any scarring, how much, and if it will go away over time. Also what can I do to help speed up the process. When I look at my skin I see no indented scars but it has changed colors as you can see in the picture. I had just woke up in this picture and my face was a little dry.
  6. Hey guys, I'm 27 and my nightmare started almost two years ago, I was using AHA's and Retin-A in an attempt to lighten some sun damage on my face (which I still have) when I realized I was doing a great deal of damage to my face. My pores became huge and stretched out on my cheeks, some are as big or bigger than the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen and have an irregular shape like someone stretched them out. I have the dreaded orange peel texture and large dents of varying depths in my face an
  7. Hey all, I have deep acne scars over my face, which are indented. I am on the wait list for my dermatologist, but in the meantime, I continue to roll with a 2mm dermaroller. I own the highest TCA chemical peel available in the UK (30% I believe), so I'm not looking for a peel from the GP. I looked around in my area and found one that was highly rated. I understand that peels won't do anything with deep scarring and yet many GP's suggest them. From looking around, the practise of subcision
  8. i need help. what kind of acne/scar is this? what kind of treatment should i get. this is my first time im having this kind of breakouts. it is really scary and i have loss my confidence
  9. Hi All, I’ve been performed 90% TCA CROSS by a board-certified dermatologist 10 days ago. The scabs were fallen off at 8th days. However, after one of the largest scabs has fallen off, I’ve seen a very wide and deep pitted scar left on my cheek. It is about 1cm wide and 1mm deep. (Previously it is two tiny ice pick scars). I’ve checked with my doctor and he said it is normal since sometimes the TCA cross will join two ice pick scars temporarily before it heals and fills in an
  10. I'd really appreciate if you tell me the type of my scars and the best solutions for treating them. I'm 29 years old. I've had this scars for 10 years and what bugs me a lot is the biggest linear scar which has ruined my life! So I'd like to know if there is any treatment to improve that one or it'is just a waste of money.
  11. Hello! I started getting acne when I was around 10 years old. It got pretty severe and then began to clear up when I turned 17. Now at age 25 I have clear skin but am plagued with acne scars. I have been going to a dermatologist for a year now. I receive chemical peels and microdermabrasion every two weeks (alternating). The derm insists that I will see results if I stick with it long enough. My skin looks a lot better as far as my pore size and coloring, but the texture is still awful. Th
  12. One clinic near me (Waterloo, ON, CA) offers RF microneedling using the Alma V Shape Ultra. I googled it and information on it was scarce. This video is the most informative I've found on the device. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ClV02y-dms The clinic's consultant told me that needles penetrate the skin at a fixed depth, with the heat input controlled by the doctor. Does anyone have experience with this machine or something that works the same way? I am looking into getting RF
  13. Hi, my name is Zacharias and I'm from Belgium and 22 years old. Just wanted to ask which kind of scars I got and what the best treatment option would be? I know they are very minor and I have nothing to complain about but they somehow bother me already for a while. Thank you for your answers.
  14. How long do people wait with subcision on new scars? Mine is 2 months old and am wondering if waiting 6 months is the right thing to do. Thanks.
  15. So if you've been stalking my old posts, you would know that I'm really big on using DMSO (https://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/337735-dmso-the-best-fix-for-acne). DMSO pretty much scavenges and eats free-radicals for lunch. More importantly, it breaks up scars and boosts collagen.* Iodine, being an essential metabolic element, helps in scar regeneration. Copper peptide works amazingly well in scar reduction. Hyaluronic acid serum is all about wrinkle-free smooth s
  16. I thought this was really interesting. 3D printing has been around a few years but it still blows my mind. But I could see it being a scar treatment in the future... http://www.wakehealth.edu/Research/WFIRM/Research/Military-Applications/Printing-Skin-Cells-On-Burn-Wounds.htm http://searchcio.techtarget.com/opinion/3D-printing-technology-payoff-beyond-imagination Sorry if this has already been posted before.

  18. Would needling or chemical peels would improve those type of scars??? or any treatment that you think would be helpful? thanks!
  19. Hello everyone, So I have had acne for pretty much all of my high school life, and now, after about 4 years, it has just about cleared up through a combination of a meticulous skincare routine, green tea, improved diet, glycolic pads etc. I do have the odd breakout for hormonal reasons during that time of the month, but I feel like it's in the same recurring areas and once those layers of skin are removed, it will stop. Anyway, I have been left with terrible hyperpigmentation. It is the type t
  20. Hello guys, I’m a 19 year old who has severe acne scars caused by cystic, inflammatory acne. After a few years of dealing the pain of having this curse (started at about 13), I finally got put on Accutane (around age 16). While this cleared up all my acne, it came well too late. The damage was already done. I had a bunch of shallow scars left over from the terrible breakouts over the years. Now I’m left with the painful reminder everyday when I look in the mirror. My scars have kept me from goin
  21. I was so stupid to play contact sports with my active acne. Now they're gone but left some nasty scars that are just horrid to look at. It bugs me when I look at the mirror. I wanted to know what is the best treatment for the scars I have. Thanks in advance. Pics are from the harshest light I could find.
  22. 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
  23. I think I've read all the derma rolling/needling related comments on acne.org. I understand some people feel its a scam. I know that many find success doing it themselves at home and don't think it's worth paying a derm, etc. I realize some people feel it's made their scarring worse. All of the different viewpoints have been valuable in my research. However, I'd really like to hear from anyone that has had Genuine Dermaroller treatments. How many sessions did you have? What kind of s
  24. I have had acne problems for over 10 years. I've tried almost everything that's available out there for acne problems. However, no matter what I used, it seems that nothing truly get rid of my pimples. They are not all over my face, but they are not completely gone, ether. I still have one or two pimples here or there most of the time. Of course, more pimple when I'm stressed out or before my periods. Last year, my acne problem had a dramatic turn. Out of nowhere, I started to break out like cra
  25. So I was on accutane for 120 days and I'll say one thing about it, it works MIRACLES. I have red marks and scars on my cheeks from where I had some bad acne. I never break out anymore, but these scars are left over! Anyways, I'm day 5 off accutane and my derm prescribed me tretinoin 0.05% cream and he said use it nightly before bed! and it'll help with hyper pigmentation and scarring? What do y'all think. Please reply!
