  1. I am finally clearing up with Minocycline 100mg prescription and benzoyl peroxide 5%. Been using it for a month both together and its starting to show. The problem is I have horrible red marks all over my face (not scars but reddish even blueish marks) and I know aloe vera really helps with this. My question is how should I implement it into my daily routine? In the morning i wash my face with a light cleanser then put on benzoyl peroxide and leave it for 10 minutes, after that I wash it off and
  2. So as y’all are very aware I have acne scars from my acne that’s just about gone a month ago. I wanted to ask people if I should leave it to heal on it’s own or if I should use this roactuane gel as prescribed by my doctor just I don’t want another flare up before school so idk. Should I just leave it? I’ll post some photos of my face down below so you can see what it looks like.
  3. Hi im wondering if anyone can help me, I finished my isotretinoin course around 3 months ago and I'm still stuck with red marks from past breakouts, I still get one or two actives every so often but nothing to what it once was. im need some advice on what to do for the pie/pih I'm currently dealing with, I have been using some zinc and niacinamide serum along with some vitamin c but it's not really doing much. I'll attach some photos if I can, they look quite red as I've just showered
  4. I was traumatized with horrendous acne on my chest and back from the 1970s and 1980s. Today I saw just how bad those scars are. Thank God the scars on my face are nowhere near as bad as the scars left on my back. Is there any plastic surgery procedures that can help smooth out deep ice pick scars on the back? Some even go up to my neckline which I never realized until today. The photo I am attaching is not very good. The scars are much deeper and wider. Thanks for your help.
  5. I'm new here, but i'm in desperate need of advice, and I just need to speak out about my experience suffering from acne. See, like alot of you, i suffered with severe cystic acne. I lived with it for a year, and i had to go on Accutane to get rid of it, however it seems that the deep scarring and redness that results from such severe cases has barely changed my situation. Although many of you have also suffered from severe acne, I feel that after reading some threads on how acne has affected p
  6. Hello forum, 1st post here. I've had mild/severe acne about 10 years ago and haven't treated acne scars. My questions - what are my type(s) of scars?; Treatment options?; European doctors/clinics that people with my type(s) of acne scars and skin tone had positive results with (high sample sizes)
  7. Please help me. My skin is oily for the most part. How do I get rid of these bumps and prevent them from growing back??? Any help is appreciated
  8. I occasionally use foundation to mask scars, but I wonder if I make it worse. Maybe I slow down the healing process?
  9. Ok guys before i head to work i wanted to share my remedy with you. I am 36yo guy and my acne started when i was 21, mostly back acne.(It's really bad ,way too many scars now) I stopped playing sports and started eating junk. Long story short, i never went to see dermatologist and never tried any other remedies, i just lived with it and 1 month ago i got tired of it. This is what i do...you can try it might help you too. First thing i use is mix of sea salt water and lemon. Simply mix
  10. Hello everyone I need to know if fat grafting works for my acne scars and how much improvement should i expect?
  11. I dont know if this is melasma, PIH, PIE, but this uneven skintone has remained for over 5 years. There are some indentations, so am wondering if the indentations are affecting the color?
  12. Hey everyone, I’m pretty embarrassed to post this considering I’m super insecure of the condition of my skin. I’m extremely fair and the contrast of my scarring and hyperpigmentation are very noticeable. I would like to know: from the pictures below (sorry for the bad quality) how severe would you say my scarring/ hyperpiemtation is? What would you suggest treatment wise for someone who has sensitive, easily scarred skin? Thankyou!
  13. hi, I am 20 years old i have had acne since i was 11, they started from my head and then filled my whole face , my mother(box car scars like me) and her family also have terrible skin, one i decided to fight back so i went to a dermatologist he told me to lose weight so i did lost 25kg eating clean and exercising but it didn't affect my acne. so i went to other dermatologist when i was about 17 he gave me low dosage accutane 10mg per day, i took for a long time it helped, i even got laser done f
  14. I have a variety of PIE and PIH scars that I got from skin picking. I picked at them over and over again so they're pretty red and brown. There's a few on my face and a few on my body. I've tried a lot of products that are recommended for these scars but nothing has really helped. I don't know what to do next. I'm thinking of dermarolling but I'm not sure. What should I do next? I can't afford laser treatments for multiple areas of my face and body as it'll cost too much. But, I'm considering it
  15. Hi guys, I'm 21 years old and I've suffered from acne for 9 years long, now I'm left with scars.This is my first time here, so i;m quite inexperienced.I just want to know how severe are my scars and which treatments can I take to improve them, thanks <3 <3. PS: I'm from Vietnam and i'm not good at English, please forgive me for any mistakes!
  16. Duration : 2 + years now.

  17. Hi all, so about a week week or so ago I was on clarithromycin for tonsillitis. After 4-5 days on this I experienced a pretty strong allergic reaction. My skin on face and body was really dry and red, and hot. It was a little itchy. Now it’s a week post. the skin on my face is very dry, tight and flakey. I moisturise multiple times a day and all over my body it’s still very dry. My face gets so oily during the day normally that I have to blot it constantly but now no oiliness. Even the ski
  18. My skin has gotten a lot worse over the past year for some reason. I didn't have these scars or enlarged pores a year and a half ago. My routine used to be just washing my face with Biore charcoal face wash everyday then putting Vaseline brand lotion in. Nowadays I use Biore salycylic acid face wash with the same lotion because it gets rid of random pimples before they even show. I've tried a Biore face mask or a week but didn't notice much difference in my skin
  19. I have come to realize I have a poor healing response. Any pimple, especially in my cheek area will leave a very shallow indent in its place. I always knew that my skin healed slowly, but now I am scared to start trying different treatments, specifically using the derminator and tca peel. Can anyone give me advice in what route I should take, especially those with the same issue. Can using the derminator cause further damage if my skin's healing ability is not the best? thanks so much!
  20. Just wanted to hear different opinions. Thanks.
  21. i've been using extra virgin olive oil organic for about 1.5 month.. i got my acne scars worse and my skin looks dull.. i mean, olvie oil supposed to do make your skin brighter and acne scars fade away but gratefully i dont get acne even tho im really acne prone.. i apply olive oil at night and rinse it off in the morning with water and tissue.. where did i do it wrong? am i use it too much? or am i applying for too long?? please helpp...... but the positive side are my skin is not oily anymore
  22. I have a small 35% TCA bottle at home and a derminator device. That's all what I want to use. No filler, no subcision. For the moment, not TCA cross either. I always read threads in which people recommend subcision+filler as main treatments and then TCA peels for "texture issues". I wonder whether TCA on its own can improve mild acne scars. How much improvement could we have with microneedling+TCA peels over the months/years?
  23. I've red somwhere that retinoinds made somebody's scars worse. I'm wandering if you heard something about it and if it referrs only to oral retinoids or also topical. I'm using topical retinoids to boost collagen after microneedling, therefore I'm asking.
  24. First of all, I'm really sorry for my English. I'm currently 18 and suffering from acne scars I've suffered from acne started when I was 12 (not cystic, it's like whiteheads, blackheads, and sometimes pimple) and I don't really have many acne right now, they just show up in some spots and they rarely show up. Anyway, so I'm suffering from the scars that are left from the acne. Now I'm not sure if the scars just showed up naturally or what, but back in 2016 I applied azelaic acid on my acne wh
