Definitely Not Worth It! - Seattle, WA

I had a cosmetic mole removal done in Seattle, Washington. I went in to have the mole looked at because I was concerned with some irritation I was experiencing off and on and they enthusiastically said many times "there's nothing wrong with it medically, but we can remove it!" "let us get you the information about having that removed." Honestly, at the time I wasn't even really thinking of... READ MORE

VI Peel Caused Hyperpigmentation - Montana

I had the VI peel done 2.5 weeks ago. It was definitely not worth it. My skin broke out badly and still is working on clearing up. I could've dealt with that because it's temporary, but I've also developed hyperpigmentation above my lip, all across the lip like a mustache. Now, I'm having to purchase an expensive 4% hydroquinone cream to add to my arsenal of products and I'm terrified of... READ MORE

Skintyte, BBL, and Ultra A (Retin-A) for Acne Scar - Montana

I received Sciton Skintyte and BBL treatment for a pretty big, but new and shallow scar that I caused by picking at a cyst on my face. I've never struggled with acne too much but had a major flare-up this summer and ended up going on sprinolacctone, oracea, and Zovia. All of which really helped clear my skin completely, but I still had that nasty scar that was on my chin right below my lower... READ MORE

Thanks! Yeah, I wouldn't do a shave if I had to do it over again, I would go to a plastic surgeon and not a dermatologist (just my preference, I'm sure there's lots of great derms out there). Especially since yours is in the smile... READ COMMENT

I am not familiar with dermastamp. I think subscision would definitely help lift and then you could rotate with laser to smooth it out. I know, the edges are the worst. And there's nothing I've found you can do with makeup. It just... READ COMMENT

No problem! I'm more than happy to help - I totally understand and thank you for the compliment. My aesthetician has done dermaplaning on it (if you just mean the manual exfoliation with the scalpel). I've thought about microneedling... READ COMMENT

Thanks :) it really is a lot better. It's hard as I'm sure you know when you see it everyday and improvement is so gradual. It's helpful to see the photos side by side. Still hoping for more improvement this fall. Good luck with... READ COMMENT

Oh weird, I see the photo. Not sure why it isn't showing for you. Wow, we went through almost identical experiences. You're lucky that yours wasn't red at all although it sounds like it might be lighter than the surrounding skin. I... READ COMMENT
