Anonymous said: Plan to do some sort of treatment to fade the scars? Also you look amazing!
thank you so much! :)
but yeah, i do plan to do some scar treatment when i travel to south korea next summer. i’m going to be talking to my dermatologist about it during my last appointment (almost done!) and see what she thinks is the best treatment for my scars and more importantly, my skin tone. i know that those who are type 3 or 4 (?) skin are more prone to getting scars from laser treatments and such, which i definitely want to avoid.
but either way, i have to wait about 6 months before i can do anything like that to my skin, so fingers crossed that my scars won’t be as bad by the time i’m allowed to get treatments so i don’t have to get the intense ones haha@20 hours ago
Anonymous said: dealt with any scarring from acctuane?
i do have scarring, but not from accutane. my scars are just from previous pimples and from picking in the past. they have significantly reduced in appearance though. idk if that’s the accutane’s doing, or if it’s due to my skin actually having time to heal from the acne, since i no longer have any pimples/zits/cysts. because before, when i’d have new pimples always popping up, my skin never really had the down-time to recover.
but my dermatologist did say that accutane does help reduce the appearance of pitted scars because it encourages collagen production or something like that! my forehead has gotten a lot smoother since accutane so i think it is true :)@22 hours ago
