  1. So about a week ago, I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth surgically extracted while under. A week before the surgery, I had stopped my Isotretinoin (30mg twice a day) treatment which I had been on for just over 6 months. (Which, by the way, cleared most acne but left LOTS of red scarring). My dermatologist advised me to resume the treatment (I have one month's worth of accutane left in hand) approximately 1 week after the surgery. I am scared to do so because I'm afraid of developing dry sockets, and
  2. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and for quite a while now I've been looking into getting a laser resurfacing on my face. I had acne breakout during my teenage years and now that I'm 25yrs old, I want to get rid of the acne scarrings that's been left from the breakout. Being an asian ethnicity I pose of complications of hyperpigmentation that's why I want to take my time on this matter and take the safest route as possible but also enough to see some actual results. I've been researching abou
  3. Hi everyone, I am slowly starting to see the effect of eating nutrient dense food and sleeping on time waking up early. I am in no way clear. But I get 1-2 spots compared to a warzone my face was about 2 months ago. ven few days of being absolutely clear.. I will be having a surgery tomorrow and the doctors have told me they would have to give me an antibiotic for a week when I am healing to prevent infections. I feel my acne issues started when my gut got weak while on a dose of ant
  4. Hey everyone! 3 weeks ago, I had a 7 hour bone graft surgery done where a piece of bone was taken from my hip and grafted into my jaw. This surgery caused lots of swelling and I was given dexamethasone (decadron) through my IV as well as prednisone. The first week and a half after my surgery, my skin was really clear but just a bit oily. By the second week after my surgery, my skin broke out horribly! I have several pimples all over my chin, neck, cheeks, and the sides of my face. I went to
  5. Hey, this site is looking to be my only hope for some influential guidance through endless scar treatments. I have some money saved up though and I'm thinking about buying a laser treatment(s) for myself. I'm 18 and I have rolling scars on my cheeks but mostly boxcar scars. I want to know which laser treatment is good and effective but one that won't leave me with burn marks.. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews on lasers in the past and I've actually seen burn marks on people who've done the t
  6. Is there anything I should use to improve the healing of sutures? Are steri strips used to keep a wound closed, or are they simply used to protect the sutures? Thank you
  7. Was sick and had a sore throat a month ago where I thought it could be strep, however it passed a few days after and I was just left with a lingering cough/stuffy throat. Ever since then, I have had on and off throat pain but nothing really to pay much attention to. I would also have a cough that was a noticeable but I wasn't sick or anything. Now, my throat has been hurting very bad ever since 2 days ago, and I think it may be related to my tonsils because it is localized pain in the back of my
  8. Hey there, I started taking Accutane in March this year after I developed an allergic reaction to BP. From the beginning on I was taking 10mg a day, for a few weeks I was taking 20mg but I couldn't handle the itchiness and the dry skin so now I am back to 10mg a day. So this is my fifth month on Accutane now and I was planning on getting cosmetic surgery (breast augementation) next Winter (around July/August 2014.. I'm from Australia ) I know that Accutane thins the skin and that it influenc
  9. Hi everyone, I had a robotic ovarian procedure a month ago, and now I'm left with 3 scars (one on bellybutton, the other 2 on the sides of my stomach). I'm putting scar cream that the doctor prescribed (ScarFix, 2x per day). The doctor said I have to avoid sun exposure so that the scars don't become keloid.... I took this photo today (sorry, it's a bit blurry). Do you think my scar is turning into keloid? What can I do to promote healthy scar healing and avoid keloids? The scars on my bellyb

    I never had acne scar before, I've only had mild acne. After course of Accutane, my face was clear before I started to brokeout and every pimples leave pitted on my face..
  11. I am 37 male, with back acne. no acne on face, but the occasional pimple. I'm currently on accutane day 18 or 19 at 40mg a day. The side effects I am experience at the present time are dry chapped lips, pain in the right shoulder joint/socket, slow healing after pimple popping, depression and anxiety, gas and constipation, sensitive skin, and light. I can deal with everything no problem but unfortunately I have surgery coming up. I've been waiting to get booked since January and I thought
  12. I was wondering, is it safe to get one's wisdom teeth removed while on Accutane? I've been on Accutane for 2 weeks now, and I've been taking 30 mg a day. My wisdom teeth haven't come through yet, but I wanted to get them removed early, maybe in 3-5 weeks from now? By then, my doctor will up my dosage to 60 mg a day. So I'm wondering should I wait, and is it even safe?

    From the album: excision journey

  14. Got scar excision/revision on a hypipigmented scar on my face about six months ago. It healed very indented and not "flat" as I was told it would , with raised sides. Surgeon wants to excise it again but I'm a bit skeptical considering it didn't heal correctly in the first place. He says this time around it'll be an easier and more successful revision since the first time he did it he was dealing with a fairly large area as compared to the narrower area that it is now. He says subcision, fille
  15. Would really love some feedback from a dermatologist but any feedback is welcomed. I've only had one very light fraxel laser treatment, and to be totally honest it didn't have much effect. This is two years post-accutane. I've accepted my scarring emotionally but at the same time, this is something that I would be really happy to not have to worry about at the ripe age of 20. I would be so thankful to just be able to be free from this once and for all. If anyone has scarring similar to m

    after excision

    From the album: excision journey

  17. Hi all, it's been a while since I've been here. I had subcision with Dr. Rappaport from NY about 2 years ago. One session for a mix of rolling, boxcar scars. Outcome was mediocre at best, very little improvement and lots of post inflammatory pigmentation that lasted over a yr (still has some). Fast forward to today, I'm still very unhappy with my scarring. So I'm looking to fly pretty much anywhere in the US to get treated. I don't want to just do lasers, maybe a combination of treatment
