Ive mainly suffered with icepick and boxcar scars and only on my cheek area. I highly recommend doing thorough research, reviews and ask queations... READ MORE

MY 1st TCA CROSS: I've been suffering for acne for most of my life, but it was light acne, resulting in an imperfect skin that I could manage with some make-up. However, this all changed, I am now 43, and it feels like in the last 3-4 years, every time I had a small pimple it left a scar, or a... READ MORE

I'm 21 years old, I've had acne since the age of 12 and constant cystic acne and picking at them left me with scars mainly on my cheeks. Ive used mostly drugstore facewashes which have just made my acne worse in the past, I have sensitive skin and I'm not sure what type of scars I have and I was... READ MORE

I have been haunted by my cheek acne scars for the last couple years as they seemed to worsen over time! I finally found the acne doctor of my dreams, his expertise and knowledge surpasses your expectations. After my initial consultation I knew he was someone I could trust working on my face, he...

I've had severe acne since the age of 12. I'm now in my 30s and have severe acne scarring. After researching for a while, I came across Dr. Rahimi's website. I met with Dr. Rahimi mid February and he recommended Ultherapy Laser, Mixto CO2 Laser, and Sulptra. It's now 5 weeks since my procedure... READ MORE

First of all, let me begin by saying that I have a pretty bad skin picking habit. I am 30 years old now and have been doing it for years. It has been a vicious cycle of "pick, figure out ways to cover it up, panic about the scars that I may have been created, try to treat the scars".... There... READ MORE

Hello pll. This is my first review ????. I had acne since I was 19 years old. I used a lot of expensive products,(proactiv, Murad, neutrogena, miracle masks, creams, and nothing. But 2 years ago I saw this miracle cheap product in Internet and bye bye acne. It's the regiment. But i replaced the... READ MORE

I have decided on doing laser treatment to improve my acne scars. I have chosen the Recosma because it seems the most suitable for my state (deep ice pick scars). I have a very oily skin and large pores which make the scars look worse. The treatment was quite easy it wasn't painful at all, it... READ MORE

If you have acne scars you will understand my story. If you don't you never will. There is a certain psyche to people who suffer from acne scarring, and for outsiders they will never understand how it can affect your confidence and impact your life- friends, family and work. Removing them was... READ MORE

I paid $2,500 for the Fraxel treatments that I received last year. I came in to see Mari, a Physician Assistant who works part time there to remove minor to moderate acne scars. The treatments were spaced out between 3-4 weeks apart. By the 3rd treatment I was not seeing ANY results and I had... READ MORE

Hi everyone. I am a 23 Years Old white girl currently living in Japan. My story: I have never had real acne issues, but when I was 18 I got big pimples on my right cheek caused by stress (I suppose), pimples which became scars when I turned 19. It has been a huge complex for me since then, even... READ MORE

I found Dr.Emer from RS. My friend who is also dermatologist in Korea recommended me to do PRP. So I researched for Drs who would perform this procedure. I found Dr.Emer through RS reviews. Dr. Emer performed Viva, PRP, Microneedling and tca cross on my face. Now everyone tells me my skin looks... READ MORE

Seeing my face makes me so upset. my skin is terrible. my doctor told me my skin is great but she sees the scarring im talking about. I'm so insecure. I hate when people stare at me. I feel like they aren't looking AT ME but at my SCARRING. I always have to spend $50 in makeup just to cover this... READ MORE

Hi guys, I have this scarring from Acne a while ago and it has not changed at all. I feel so embarrassed and ashamed of myself that I don't get outside of the house or hardly talk to my friends face to face. I don't know what to do and I feel bad. Is there any treatment for Indian/Pakistani... READ MORE

I really need some advice on getting the right treatment for my acne scars, these dents/holes have ruined my self esteem so so bad since I got them in late teens (I'm now 31) and I'd do almost anything to get rid of them so I can feel normal again. Problem is I have no idea what procedure is... READ MORE

I look to improve my scarring by at least 40%. I live in Toronto, Canada. I am unsure what procedures to have or who to inquire about these procedures. My acne is now under control using a combination of being pro active in my cleansing routine(washing my face less with more natural cleansers... READ MORE

I got 100% tca cross done to one cheek today. I did half my face so I would heal faster in the target area and see how it goes. It stung alot and frosted very fast. I'm hoping the results are good, I will post the progression. Still no scabbing. I wasn't sure when I would scab but I assumed I... READ MORE

Underwent two rounds of subcision: first procedure in February, second in April. I think the smaller scars are virtually unnoticeable but I'm not quite sure about a significant improvement in the large clustering of the larger boxcar (?) scars on my cheek. Friends/family indicate a 30-60%... READ MORE
