    Anyone have it? Has anyone tried different medical procedures to have them removed? I'm pretty light complected and the scars that were left behind are very visible and I hate it!

    Any suggestions are appreciated :hsd:

    I've had medical microdermabrasion procedures done before, and while they helped resurface my skin, that's pretty much all it did. My skin felt really soft and smooth several days later, but the scars were just as visible as before.:wtc:

    Thanks though :wiggle:

    try this... not immediate results, but i've seen it work over a longer amount of time


    mix a bottle of apple cider vinegar and water to use on your face after washing it. just let it air dry. it shouldn't sting... if it does, its too strong.

    use tape as an exfoliator every other day. sounds dumb, but it'll take off just the top layer of dead skin cells.

    hmm, what ratio of ac vinegar to water? and tape? what kind of tape? can you explain a little more in detail?

    :rolleyes:

    microdermabrasion won't work, it's like 4 microns deep or some shit like that

    contratubex is supposed to be good, but you'll have to order it from germany or hong kong

    otherwise find a dermatologist, you might be a candidate for needle surgery or a filler

    I wasn't trying to be rude. I just simply didn't understand. Sorry if that's how I came across.

    i don't have "craters" as a result from the acne. it's more like small dark spots. they aren't horrible or anything, just annoying to see because they're visible if i don't wear foundation. i've heard people just refer to them as hyperpigmentation that can be lightened with hydroquinone but i'm afraid of my skin being too sensitive for that.

    if i use contratubex, would it be too strong for my needs? i've seen some of the before and after pictures they have online and it really did a good job, but my face is nowhere near being that severe. what do you think?

    thanks for for your help!

    edit: i just saw another site that said contratubex was the european version of mederma! i've never tried that stuff but i hear it really does work with continued use. do you think this would work just as well? or is there some difference between the two?
