  1. Im 18 year old my faced started breaking out 4 months ago Im using benzoyl peroxide gel 2.5% and glyco acid cream i used it for 3 months it barely made any difference and im still getting new pimples.i feel stressed because of my acne
  2. A week ago I got a really bad blemish and obviously I made the mistake of messing with it. Today I noticed the spot where the blemish was is indented. The mark is still new so I am not sure if it's still healing or if this will be a permanent acne scar, only time will tell but I'm curious to know what you guys think. Again it's only been a day since this has been indented and a week since the mark first showed up. I'll attach a picture so you can see and let me know what you think. This is the f
  3. Hey everyone, so I've been using the acne.org for about 4 months now and so far I've been through all the flakiness all of the dryness and everything and finally all of that stopped. About 2 weeks ago all of my acne stopped and I was left with just scars which I was okay with because I'd rather just have scars and deal with those than have a bunch of new acne popping up. On acne.org my acne went away 2 weeks ago but then now all of it's coming back and I kind of feel like I'm right where I s
  4. Hi all, I've been using my .5 roller 1-2 times a week for a couple of months. It's really improved a lot of issues caused by barrier damage (my skin routine helped too). My scarring is looking better and my texture is improving. I want to use a 1.5 stamp every six weeks instead of the roller because it seems a lot easier, and I want to go for more textural improvement. I have to say that rolling takes me a long time, and I'm super busy this semester with constant school and a new job. I can'
  5. hi! i have a lot of questions and need some quick advice but i'm going to give some background info / my personal experience first (just skip down to the questions if you would like!) BACKGROUND INFO- okay so i've had mild to moderate acne on and off since i was about 12 (in 15 now). i used to get pimples only on my forehead and they were never big at all. usually skin colored so they never really bothered me. i would also get blackheads around my nose but they were not noticeable. ( my mot
  6. So this all started a couple months ago when I had a huge zit on my nose, I've been letting it grow older so I would be able to pop it. Now I finally decided it was time to pop it but it just started to bleed a lot so being an idiot I ripped the skin of so its a like circle. After that it was just red, however skin started to grow back but I kept picking at it! After that I let the skin grow back but it was a purplish brown colour so I picked it off! Now skin will not grow back and I'm not sure
  7. i'm new on here but desperately need some help. like 2 weeks ago i had a bad hormonal breakout and got a lot of pimples on my cheeks. i got one near my jawline that was a whitehead but hurt pretty bad, i had refrained from picking at the other pimples bc i know how bad it is but this one had a lot of pressure so i popped it. i felt like it had SO much stuff oozing out of it that i had to keep popping it which resulted in a red mark bigger than the original pimple. anyways it's been a while and i
  8. Well well well, here I am. Back again. Back in the early 00s this community gave me so much support. I thought I would come back and give an update. Back then I was known as "Guardedly Optimistic" now i'm "Guardedly Optimistic 2017" This is the thing, it's a journey. My skin is still very damaged; mostly visible under harsh over head lighting. But...and get this...I ended up pursuing my dream of being an actor and filmmaker! Yes, acne and scars and insecurities and all that crap was not goin
  9. Hello all, This is a recent problem I've been facing with my skin and hopefully I can get some help :,) So I started using a face wash that my friend let me use because she didnt want it anymore, but it has exfoliating beads in it and since I dont have tons of money I kept using it because I thought i could get away with it until i can convince my parents to buy me a new one. Long story short, it's making me suffer now because the over exfoliating (i also exfoliate once a week and my face ma
  10. Hi all, So I am wondering if any of you can impart your wisdom as to how to get rid of a soft, red, raised bump left over from a pimple quicker... Background: So I have clear skin now and have done for around 9 months (*finally!*). In this time frame I have only had 1 large under the skin bumps; this one gracefully planted itself slap bang in the middle of my cheek 2 weeks ago right next to a icepick scar (so it looked super attractive) after using Paula's Choice 2% BHA the night before for
  11. 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?
  12. For example when I was in high school I wanted to kill everyone who bullied me for it. I also use to punch and break things because of how it wrecked my life. Now a few years later I still have violent thoughts in general because of it and constant anger.
  13. I have had this redness for years now and i just want to know how to get rid of it! I dont get that many spots but the redness never leaves!
  14. Hey does anyone know a slightly cheaper way to get rid of acne scarring? I used bha cause I had closed comedomes and my skin purged and got it all out onto my skin and it's almost cleared up except these little dots on my skin.. if anyone knows how to get rid of them please let me know.. that'd be amazing because they make me so insecure
  15. Hi guys, So a little over a month ago, I had either a pustule or cyst on my cheek, that I did squeeze once, because it kept getting worse and worse. I'm pretty sure it scarred, as I've had a raised mark there ever since the blemish healed. There is a picture attached below. The other day the scar randomly turned dark purple, and sometimes it itches, or hurts if I run my finger over it. What type of scar is this, and is this typical of acne scars? I do want to get it treated eventually.
  16. Hi everyone How long should one wait post accutane to consider subcision treatments? I've read many different things on threads within this website, with some people saying to wait 6 months, others 12 months, and others saying it can be done within a couple of months post accutane - with only energy devices (such as lasers) being the thing you have to avoid for a 6+ months post accutane. Any advice would be great. Thanks
  17. Hi all, I am looking into subcision treatments and was wondering if anyone has had good results from anywhere within Sydney, Australia. Any recommendations would be great!!! Also, how long should one wait post accutane to receive subcision treatments? Thanks, hotdog1996
  18. Hi can u recommend which skin care product well to acnes skin? Like toner moisturizer and etc. Maybe it will helpful to treat my acnes and maybe my scars. Thank you
  19. Greetings, I have been battling an extremely large and persistent cyst (acne). Also, I have other skin issues (minor) with eczema and dermatitis. For example, a few days ago I had an itchy allergic bump that responded well to hydrocortisone. About 10 days ago, I noticed I was developing two new cysts. One of them was deep and quite painful. The stress of final exams probably played a role in the development of my new cysts. Anyway, I felt extremely ambivalent about seeing the dermatologist for
  20. What angers me most about acne is all the missed opportunities it caused me to have during my teen years that I will never get back. I had no friends and never did anything exciting as a teen because I lived in isolation not by choice. I'm 21 now and have pretty much clear skin and I feel like I'm years behind everyone else because it socially stunted me and it's hard to start a social life from scratch as you get older.
  21. Hey guys, So I'm looking to get professional help to take care of my Acne scars. I am having a hard time just finding someone to see....I called a few dermatologists but they didn't do cosmetic work. I've posted some pictures of my scars on here and was told TCA Cross would be beneficial. So my question is....Should I be looking for a dermatologist or a plastic/cosmetic surgeon?
  22. So, posting scars, to see how bad they really are. As you can see, the pictures are just of the right side of my face; the left doesn't really have any significant scarring, despite having suffered from severe acne (although my skin compensated by giving me body acne) , with some mild spots active still (mainly clogged pores, probably my annual fall breakout). Keep in mind that I had to tweak the pics a little bit, sharpen them, to compensate for the low resolution of my camera, which tends to
  23. Hey. I've managed to clear my face of acne for the most part and i'm happy with my skin now, however I have a lot of small scarring left over that I'd like to improve. Retinol, dermarolling, oil cleansing and lifestyle changes seemed to have helped clear my complexion and scarring the most, I don't have any other 4k photos like these, but my skin was so rough, congested, scarred and irritated all the time that it's pretty amazing where i'm at now. but of course, I still want to improve. a
  24. So I had this blackhead at the top of my nose, and I guess it wasn't ready because I squeezed it for like ten minutes. It finally came out but now today I have a red spot where it used to be??! It looks similar to those red birthmarks some people have, and it hurts a little when I touch it. Help is this permanent?? I Should have never picked at my face
  25. i was simply wondering if lime juice helps to lighten acne scars and if not, what other methods i could use??
