I am a 31 year old Asian Male and I've undergone a Skin Needling Procedure using a Dermapen. I've had atrophic scars which are a combination of box and ice pick scars prior to treatment. I've had cystic acne in the past and this had left me with deep scars. The doctor who did my treatment was a... READ MORE

After consulting with 3 different dermatologists and Estheticians and researching the recommended modalities (co2 micro-ablative laser, micro-needling/derma pen, etc) , I decided to go with the level 3 chemical peel and TCA cross. I had acne since early teens and have some ice pick scars on my... READ MORE

I have had severe acne scars on both my cheeks since past 23 years. It didn't bother me as much until recently when I started working out and my scars got worse. After reading the reviews in this forum I consulted a PS in India who does subcision. Based on his recommendation I had subcision with... READ MORE

I have had recurring acne throughout my teen years, and bad habits and poor handling had caused me to suffer the ill fated scarring on my face. I have taken Nimegen (a type of iso) for a few years and have pretty much cleared everything up. I am not sure if i have deep or mild scars, but it... READ MORE

Will Subcision and how much fillers will fix my profile view?? My front view is pleasant and I'm happy with that. But hate hate side profiles now!!! Please help!!! I don't need 100% fix, just a 30 to 50% is fine. Want to soften the scars right under my cheekbone. How much fillers will I need... READ MORE

For a first time I make a chemical peel maybe 8 time, than made once dermabrasion, than once CO2 laser and then start to make a new Ematrix technology because doctor says that is new thing and it is a innovation for acne scar treatment.

So I want to give a brief summary on my acne. Since middle school I have been dealing with acne. I have tried minocyclin, doxycyclin, spironolactone, clindamycin phosphate lotion, ziana, and tretinoin cream. But nothing has worked. I almost even went on accutane but ended up chickening out....

I have mild acne scarring for 3-4 years now, specially on my right cheek. I tried eCO2 laser back in March 2014. The doctor said I only needed 1-2 treatments. However, after my first treatment, I had to move to Florida for a job opportunity so I could not get my 2nd treatment done. I do not know... READ MORE

I have moderate acne scarring on my cheeks and rather severe scars on my chin. (Rolling scars). I took Accutane in my 20s, and it was a wonder drug. It cured my cystic acne and plumped up my skin. About ten years later, a slow progression of scar visibility began. Now, in my 40s, I am very... READ MORE

I have an excellent experience with Dr. Antipov about my problems with skin. I'm 13 and I have a problem skin. I went to a few dermatologists and all of them told me the same "pills". I found out later that those pills have a lot of side effects and are very dangerous. So I declined them. Then I... READ MORE

I had the pro-fractional done for acne scars. I'm sixty years old and thought perhaps a facelift would be the best. However,I met with a wonderful plastic surgeon that advised against a facelift and said the pro-fractional would work far better. I was so skeptical, I mean I waited almost 30... READ MORE

Hey everyone, A while ago I posted about my acne scar story and ask for a suggestion to another treatment. This is a summary of what I wrote: "I have acne scars on my cheeks and chin.

Dr. Benik improved my acne scars. She subcision with filler. We did it last july 21, 2014. The before photo was taken August 21, 2014. She's so straight forward and does not want you to have the high hope on the treatment, but she's good on what she's doing. She really improved my scars. She... READ MORE

Hiya Long story short I have suffered from acne since my late teens. It became progressively worse (severe acne) to the point that in September 2012 I started a ten month course of Roaccutane. Despite suffering from a number of gruelling side effects, and by no means has my acne completely... READ MORE
