I Got Rid Of My Acne Scars With Laser Treatment

I Got Rid Of My Acne Scars With Laser Treatment


– Tomorrow I’m getting
my acne scars lasered off and I’m really nervous. (upbeat music) I developed acne around
puberty, like 13 or 14. All of these dots here
are fairly smoothed, none of them are raised. I’m tired of taking pictures
and having that be all I see. I’ve tried topicals, meds,
dermarolling, peels, facials, vitamin C and other serums. I’m kinda just coming to
terms with the fact that it might just take some
serious laser action to completely get rid of these. I would be freed from an insecurity that would follow me for the
rest of my life otherwise. – Sweetheart, what can I do for you? – I have these acne scars.
(bell rings) Laser might be my last hope. – And the scars showed up, what? Four, five, six years ago? Or longer? – Yeah, right around then. – So, you see what I’m looking
for is some of these scars are what we call
stretchable or distensible, some of them are. And you see on this side,
it’s a little bit worse and it’s mostly red, it’s
mostly a little bit of pitted, and there’s very little
brown discoloration. It’s mostly inflammatory. We’re gonna use something
called an infrared laser. It’s a laser that heats the skin about 20 sheets of paper
deep into the skin. We’re gonna draw your blood because we’re gonna use
your platelet-rich fibrin, which is protein from your own blood, to sort of apply topically to try to get the healing process better. And then after the laser, there’s a little tiny fine
golden microneedling instrument that we use to dispense
the platelet-rich fibrin. Now, what you need to know
is when you’re fixing scars, it’s much more than one treatment. It’s not like the treatment today, a week later when you’re
healed, you’re flawless. No. It’s baby steps. So, let’s draw the blood and
then while that’s spinning we can do the laser. – Got it.
– Okay, let’s activate it. – Let’s activate it. It’s my blood! I’m super nervous. I’m about to get lasered. – You should just gently close your eyes. (machine beeping) (classical music) Hanging in there? – Mhm.
– Great. Now, this part of the
treatment is almost done. – (gasps) It really hurts, sorry. – Done. All set? But is it still hurting? So, that was the laser part of it. That little gelatin
middle part separates it and it’s the yellow
stuff that we care about. (upbeat music) You can see that it’s leaving a fine film of this liquid. – I honestly didn’t think of it like that, but now that I am, absolutely. – But you see it’s a
little bit pink and puffy and over the next two to four weeks the degree of scarring will diminish, maybe 5%, 10%, maybe 20%, and then maybe at one to
two to three month intervals this is repeated. – Amazing. Alright. My face is very tight,
I cried a little bit. Hopefully in a couple weeks I see at least a little bit of difference because this still sort of
feels like my only hope. So, I guess I let my own
blood things soak into my face for 24 hours and then the
at-home treatment begins. I’m still a little puffy and very red. I guess it’ll be a couple
weeks until I see any change. I’m really glad that I got my acne lasered because it is already looking lighter and I’m interested to see how it’ll look in couple more weeks when
it’s really really healed, but he talked to me a
lot about my active acne and how we can work on
getting rid of that. I honestly feel instilled
with a new hope (laughs) that I can have better skin than I have. How are my acne scars looking to you? – Really quite remarkable. I have never seen it look as smooth. I mean, it’s been years. – Yay. I’m really grateful that
I did get the lasers to my acne scars ’cause it
100% has made a difference. I feel like my skin just
looks a little healthier. I haven’t worn makeup in
like a week and a half. Were the lasers painful? Yes, they were uncomfortable, but I would 100% do it again, but I don’t feel quite
so desperate anymore to get them all to just disappear. If and when the day comes that
I really want to go all in, do all the lasers and get these completely wiped off of my face, that laser does work and
there is an option for me. But in the meantime, I’m okay just having some
dots and scars on my face. No one is perfect and I feel beautiful. – So, as you may have
noticed, Boldly is now As/Is. – Mhm, but don’t worry. You’ll still get all the
awesome content you’re used to but just even more new great stuff. – Click here to subscribe. – Woo! Clicky, click. (uplifting music)

  1. I don’t have acne scars on my face, I have a few on my back though. But the ones that bother me the most are the ones on my arm. Which is mostly scratches from my dogs. Except for one, which was a scab I had that I thought was healed enough, so I put glycolic acid on it (glycolic acid is supposed to fade scars) but instead of helping it like it did the other ones, it made a chemical burn which looked even worse. And I kept picking the scab off which made a huge scar. I hate it lol

  3. Are you people blind? There were definitely results from her laser treatment LOL. You kids need glasses. I don't think you guys and gals get it.

    Everyone's acne scars can be different. Some people can get really lucky because theirs aren't so bad and it can be very light and hardly noticeable (but as time goes on it will naturally fade completely) and some people can have it really really bad to the point where it is very noticeable.

    Her acne scars weren't bad at all, they were incredibly light redish sort of colour and it would have faded over time but the laser treatment did make improvements. Also it was her first treatment.

    It wasn't just the spots that faded away, the redness on her cheek bones too. Her face is a lot lighter and clearer.

    Gosh is common since kids.

  4. I have a birthmark on my right cheek…..I've had 13 laser surgery so know what it's like. I know it's painful but it does really help👍

  5. Okay, next time. Include the fact that you used Pym tech to remove your scars.. your doc was obviously Hank Pym. 😑

  6. This worked so well for me. So what I did was

    1. Wash my face before I go to school with acne treatment.

    2. Use a benzoyl peroxide solution

    3. Use lotion ONLY IF NEEDED

    After school:

    4. Take makeup off

    5. Wash face with acne treatment

    6. Use a benzoyl peroxide solution

    7. Use lotion ONLY IF NEEDED

    Do this straight after u get home

    Before u go to bed:

    8: take Neosporin and rub a thin layer into skin like a lotion

    9. Take a lot more Neosporin and glob a huge amount all over face

    10. Sleep preferably on back when you can’t rub all of it off

    11. In the morning rub remaining Neosporin into skin (if u used enough u should have some left on)

    Repeat

    This works because acne is basically an infection on ur skin and Neosporin helps heal infections ie: cuts scrapes burns minor infections. It won’t work completely on the first day but after a week I had baby soft skin and no acne. This also helps with dry skin, patchy skin scarring and scabs. If ur reading this please try it and share it with others as I will do the same.

  7. I just had my second session two days ago. And yes its very painful but works really good. I have alot of acne scars but now my face looks so much better.

  8. Dr. Momoh Herbal Center cured me of herpes simplex virus with herbal mixtures that I bought from him, I undergoes so many medications without solution untill i saw a testimony on internent on how Dr momoh cure serveral diseases so i took his contact and give him a try.

    Contact him to get your own herbal remedy for all kinds of herpes virus and other diseases.

    Email: [email protected]

    call or whatsapp his phone number +2347051839672

    God bless Dr. Momoh.

  9. Yeah, I was going to get this done, but then they said it takes your blood and time, yeah…

    No thank you. Wesley give me anxiety

  10. The one treatment cost $2,500?

    I had pulsed-dye laser treatments and each were $1,250.

    I wonder why the two types of laser treatments varied so much in cost.

  11. Funny how we view our own insecurities with such a magnifying glass. I was watching "cystic acne" videos before this one and I wouldn't ever have noticed the "scars" in this video if they weren't pointed out. I am sceptical about the seperation of blood and reapplied to the skin. Sounds a bit too Hollywood. I'm going to need some studies that shows results based on that specific method before I believe it. The laser part I believe. It's been around for so long.

  12. So what's the specifics of what kind of laser treatment it is?/What it's called? I purchased a series of laser pigmentation removal treatment but saw a vid where her freckles go but her acne scarring does not at all from that kind of laser and I bought it for scar removal so I'm at a loss now!

  13. Was each treatment 2500? And how long do you have to wait until you can wear makeup again safely after the treatment?

  14. No wonder my dermatologist told me I can’t get laser done yet because that’s how they do it. Interesting. I have to wait up to a year to get it done after I was done with accutane. Her scars aren’t even that bad. Mine is worse! I have deep acne scars lol

  15. What exactly is Fopobiacne Secrets? How does this thing really work? I notice lots of people keep on talking about this popular acne treatment.
