  1. Hey guys, I just wanted to post something different on this forum. I have suffered with acne for 6 years, I have literally tried everything possible and through those six years I have experienced an array of emotions. I have been angry, sad, lonely, depressed, and insecure. I'm not going to tell you that I am at my optimum confidence level or that I even love myself now or more. It seems like people promote that they love themselves after they make their flaws disappear, but that's not always
  2. Hey, Thanks for taking the time to read this topic. For those of you that have shallow scars (or had shallow scars at one point) what do you recommed? What helped you get rid of our shallow scars or at least diminish them. I know that shallow acne scarring is not the end of the world. I feel bad for those of you that have serious scarring. Serious scarring is also not the end of the world. At least in my book i's not. Keep your heads up. Any and all responses are appreciated it
  3. So I had a big cyst and it left a hole that has been slooooowly healing. I'm about 5 or 6 weeks into healing now. There is still redness and even a little sensitivity at the center (it is closed)...the indentation is gradually rising, but I'm not sure if it's going to make it all the way (?). Staring "atrophy" right in the face. No pun intended... In the case it doesn't and I'm left with some sort of rolling indentation, I've been reading up on my options to treat. I've seen a number of posts
  4. Hi, I have a few little indents scattered on my left cheek, but the most bothersome are two that are rather shallow, but right below my under eye area, so they feel very noticeable. I can't catch them very well with a camera but they are noticeable in real life. I am considering TCA cross on them, but I wonder if TCA will make them worse if they are shallow, or show great improvement because of it? Anyone try TCA on a shallow ice pick scar? Also, I put boxcar in the title because I

    Shallow Scars

    I'm 17 and have a couple shallow indents (Kinda like box scars) on each cheek. Each are less that .5 mm. The acne that caused them went away a couple monthes ago and redness is still present. What are the chances of these scars going away? I had some scarring on my temples when I was 16 that went away in under a year when I was puttiing this healing stuff on it called clense and heal but I fear that my skin has changed since.
  6. Hello everyone. Does anyone know or has anyone experienced acne scars fading?? I know this is asked a lot but mine are very small and shallow. They are not noticeable unless under harsh or bright lighting specifically when I've got makeup on... I can't feel any dents either when i touch them. I've had hyper pigmentation for years which sucks in itself but now that I've noticed these scars I am very upset .... Do you think they will go away on their own because they are shallow? I'm not gonna do
  7. Hi. I have a few shallow acne scars on my temples. I believe some of them are boxcar and some are rolling. Some of them are really shallow though. I've had weekly 40% Lactic Acid peels for 5 months now, with 5 - 10% improvement on these scars, which is almost nothing considering it took long. My question is, can I move up to 40% Glycolic, since it is stronger and offers better results on scars? Thoughts and experiences are welcome .

    Legato Laser Treatment

    I have searched forum for information on various treatments, but it is so strange that nobody has talked about legato treatment. I am actually going to Korea for a short vacation to receive this treatment for acne scars. Legato treatment became available in Korea around year 2012 (maybe 2011) and has become popular since then. Legato uses plasma laser to make small pin holes on your skin and use injection hand piece to push healing agent into your skin. Healing agent can be adjusted by the d

    Shallow Acne Scar Help

    I have recently noticed that I have two shallow acne scars on my face, one on each side. They are very shallow, and can not be seen very easily unless the light hits my face in certain ways. I have recently talked to someone about it, and they said that they never even noticed them, but I still get depressed over them anyway whenever I see my reflection. I have just turned 20, and wanted to know if they may possibly fade to some extent over time. I am not against getting treatment from a derm

    Acne Scars/ pores ?

    Hi i have a few dark spots on my skin and a some irregularities on my left cheek that I suspect to be scars.The very idea of peels and lazer treatment scares me to say the least. *Are they scars or open pores ? *Does Retin A improve the appearence of scars ? P.s I have applied #Dapsone #Benzoyl peroxide 2.5 #Adapelene #Clindamycin
