Okay which procedure you guys recomend as best? I know there is lasers, subsicions, needling but which you guys think its the best one of all and for what type of scar?
com’on…..someone must have one that ACTUALLY works!
im on B5,zinc and fish oil pills…. they’re sopposed to help with texture… not seen results yet. anyone used this and had GOOD results?
Im doing the Cool Touch Laser and Versa Pulse Laser. The versa pulse has helped so much with the redness. And I have had 3 or 4 of those. And the Cool Touch laser not sure yet. That takes a few months to see results. But I’ll let ya know!
There are so many types of treatments for scars, hard to say what is the best.
For red marks/pigmentation/shallow scars:Vinegar dabbingMandelic/kojic creamsCopper peptidesRetin-aGlycolic/lactic peelsTape method
For pitted/boxscars/icepicks:Skin needling (rolling scars, boxscars and smaller icepicks)subcision (rolling scars and boxscars)Punch excision (mainly for deep ice picks)TCA cross method (mainly for ice picks)
For both the aboveNon ablative lasers: N-lite/smoothbeam etc..
There are fillers too!! and other methods of course
For red marks/pigmentation/shallow scars:Vinegar dabbing
what do you do with vinegar? i have red marks (brown skin). what is the procedure on the vinegar? any kind of vinegar?
Good post Maya sista!
Can someone tell me what the different types of scars are and what they look like?
Cider vinegar (diluted – 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water) is best – just rub onto face several times a day.
3 main types of depressed scars:
Boxscars – look like chicken pock scars – can be shallow or deep
Ice picks – as the name suggests – looks like someone stuck an ice pick in your face -so it could be a big or small hole – like an enormous open pore
Rolling scars – looks like orange peel – if you stretch the skin, the scars seemingly dissapear
Red marks are not scars – they fade in time
damn, really good posts here. hey maya, i think i have some orange peel scars,and probably a couple of shallow ones. how would you get rid of those?i dont think i have any ice picks. most my scars are still red. and i use AZELEX and its working good. really good,im pretty sure their is some treatment for me,cause its not that bad anymore. and i use retin-A micro on activ acne. if i stretch my skin by making faces. (you know what i mean,like if you wistle)it looks like i dont have any scars. what should i do for that? and i want to do all i can on my own for my scars, like the viniger stuff and what ever else i can. can you help me? i dident really get what you said about the vinger though. how do you mix it? which viniger?where do i get the viniger? etc..
Read the first ten or so pages of the link Maya provided. It has a lot of info about cider vinegar.

About the vinegar – read the thread link I posted above. You can start off with the vinegar for a couple of months and if that isn’t good enough, consider subcision or skin needling/ Also try non-ablative lasers like smnoothbeam and N-lite.
does it ever completely remove the scar? or does it ever look like clear smoothe skin again?
You mean with the vinegar? Should see some good results within 4 weeks and then you can gage how well it works for you – everyone is different.
Definetly a good try
Sorry Maya, but you sound like a doctor in that sentence. (everyone is different) But it is true that we are all different even though we are all the same.
Aggggg!! it is so confusing.Solomio
Me? Sound like a doctor???? OK – I need therapy (retail of course he he… :crazyeyes )
Is there anything outhere that completely removes scars? and makes it normal skin again (smoothe skin) my face looks like a map
