Acne Skin Story 痘疤治疗

8 May 2014

I'm sorry for this long article, but i really wanna share all my feelings out. 

Hello!大家好,我回来了。不好意思让大家久等了。今天又要跟大家分享我的皮肤进展了。好长的一篇哦…..准备好读了吗?好啦,我知道很多人都很心急想知道我的皮肤的进展如何。我也很迫不及待想Blog,只是有时候真的太忙碌了,没有时间也没有什么灵感…哈哈。这段时间内有很多人wechat我,email我,inbox我告诉我他们的皮肤状况,问我应该要怎么治疗。虽然我不是医生,但我会尽量分享我的经验给大家,希望可以帮到其它面对痘痘问题的人。

其实我的皮肤状况真的困扰了我好多年,从我19/20岁那年..本来一个痘痘都没有的脸蛋,突然火山爆发!那时的我很颓废,也没有去看医生,因为我没有太多的知识..只是随便找一件美容院洗脸。可是并没有好转,美容师还跟我按到脸上留疤痕。每次一想到要去Facial了就想哭..因为又要按痘痘了…然后反反复复的几年,痘痘都没有好转过,换了几个美容院,几个医生,有些医生还把我脸搞得更糟。直到去年,是我脸最糟糕的时候,我去看了Dr.Ting,吃Roccutane后将经一年痘痘才停止。如今只剩下的是痘疤。

若你们没有看过我的皮肤状况可以看看这里 Skin Condition

我问过很多医生,他们都建议只有Laser才可以淡化凹凸洞,所以我决定做了。但是我也很害怕,很担心,不知道我的脸适不适合做Laser。因为我的皮肤很敏感,动不动就会泛红,发痒。也很担心做了laser后,皮肤会变薄,会弄巧反拙长痘痘,皮肤会烂掉之类的。还有疗程后的保养会不会太麻烦,会不会不能做这个,不能做那个的,哈哈哈哈,毕竟那个是‘脸’啊…担心是当然的。可是consult了Dr.Rachel…经过深入了解了以后,我才放心把我脸交给她做了。为了让皮肤康复,什么都值得的!
People often say that having acne is no big deal, but that’s far from true. I hate my face so much, constantly having pimples, and with all the acne scars that I have on my face doesn't make me any better. Everyday is a torture for me to wake up, knowing I have to face a long day ahead with that ugly face of mine. I'm dying inside. It's like a curse sometimes, I feel like I cannot go on in society because I am constantly being judged and looked at. Acne really ruined my life these years. 

Nobody knows. My skin looks just fine under my makeup + soft skin mode. 
Who knows what hide under all these stuff? I don't wanna hide things. 

Okay, I'm not afraid to show you.  Do you know how serious is my skin before this? Everyday looking at the mirror with super terrible skin condition. All i want is just a "Normal skin".. but it seems hard to me. 


有看过以前我的脸有多严重吗?风吹都会痛的痘痘,多痛苦啊。
不好意思又要折磨你们的眼睛了。就算到今时今日的我看到这些照片还是会毛骨悚然,好害怕,觉得好恶心。有朋友问我,为什么那么变态,脸那么烂了还敢拍照还敢post。我说,我要拍来做纪念,警惕自己的。Post就post咯,有什么好怕的,事实是这样,怎么掩饰也掩饰不了的,对吗?哈哈哈。死就死啦,I have nothing to lose.
曾经那么严重的痘痘,怎么可能不留疤痕呢…
I had these problem since i was 19/20 years old, initially it begin with 2-3 innocent pimples that refuses to go away and then the others start popping up like nobody business. FML, I've suffered this for more than years. Yes, it's killing me every time whenever i look at myself. 
这是去年年尾,痘痘刚收控制的照片。好多好多痘疤!整个脸颊都凹进去了
你能想象吗?这样出门,这样去gym。那些人的眼光。不化妆根本不能拍照。
就算它复原以后还是会有这样的痘疤。不是太深但是还是很明显一个洞一个洞的。
就算上妆了还是会看到凹凸洞,化妆品再厉害也只能盖到那些红红的罢了。
I take Roaccutane for more than 1 year to fully control the breakout. I just stopped this February. So far, there's no more breakout on my skin. Just that annoying acne scars and some redness left. My skin gets really red during the hot weather, it's really sensitive. I always wanted to get rid of these scarring. I tried so many products bla bla bla ever since the acne stopped. Nothing worked. So i went for Skin Laser this time! 
你知道吗,因为我的皮肤,我好没有自信,看也不敢正眼看人..尤其是看到陌生人的时候…还有很多很多。我伤心过,哭过,埋怨过,失望过,放弃过…但是还是挨过来了。好庆幸现在没有痘痘了,只有痘疤。跟以前比起来,我真的要谢天谢地了。所以痘疤啊...是我目前最大最大最大的困扰。我一直在努力找办法治疗。我也不想每天靠自拍神器,soft skin mode啊什么的。因为毕竟人家看到你真人的时候还是会失望然后批评的,我不要做诈骗集团,哈哈哈!

好了,言归正传。想知道Laser疗程是怎样做的吗?

看到我脸上这个白白的东西吗?是麻药。要敷大概30分钟左右。
敷完过后我的脸是完全麻痹了,那种感觉好好笑,好像敷了cement在脸上似的..不怕痛了.
 A topical anaesthesia(numb cream) on treated area for 30 minutes. Numbing cream helped to bring down the pain during the laser treatment.Totally can't feel my face anymore after remove the numbing cream. It's NUMB! really NUMB…Hahaha. 

敷完之后remove掉就要准备做镭射了。
Skinartësse Smooth Laser is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Collagen provides the support network to our skin. The laser works by stimulating collagen production. As the new collagen is generated, lines and scars are decreased.  This procedure can helps to refreshed appearance, smoother skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with difficult acne scarring can also have improvement after treatment. This laser does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime or prolonged healing process at all.

Skinartësse Smooth Laser is an ideal treatment for those that desire to:

1. Reduce oiliness of the skin
2. Shrink pore size
3. Improve facial laxity and textural problems
4. Minimize skin discolourations
5. Reduce visibility of acne scars
6. Diminish fine lines and creases
7. Reduce body scars
8. Mole removal
其实这个Laser的目的是让刺激皮肤里的Collagen再生然后修复皮肤,换一层新的皮肤。它比较适合让有痘疤的人/毛孔粗大/上了年纪的人做。而且它也有紧实肌肤的功效。一般Laser是要做整个疗程的,大概4-6次,通常是一个月做一次的。

看到Close Up吗?它是好像一粒一粒的电打在脸上,只是带过。5-10分钟而已
没有想象中的痛,因为擦了麻药,整个脸没什么知觉了,不会很痛而且很快就做好了。

The skin is thoroughly cleansed, and laser-protective goggles are placed over the eyes. An invisible laser beam is directed at the face, which heats up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The treatment takes around 45 minutes including the numbing process, faster than i expected. Surprisingly, it's not really painful cause i've applied the numbing cream earlier, can only listen to the "ting ting" sound of the machine & some heaty feeling after the laser. It's not really painful for me. 
只是麻药过了后,脸烫烫的,好像给太阳暴晒完毕...而且红红的.
不过都是正常的,只是好像晒伤了而已,敷敷冰袋就好。
为什么我选择SkinArt,因为疗程后他们会附送一个镇定皮肤的疗程。
Laser后会立刻帮你做的,目的是要补充皮肤的水份还有镇定它。
涂过serum后就拿这个machine roll在皮肤上,冷冷的,超舒服。
回家后,脸会热热的好像晒伤那样。睡前,我拼命浮冰来镇定它。
Laser完毕的第二天的照片
Here's a photo of my skin on the 2nd day after LASER treatment. It's like sunburn.
There's a lot of micro dot, It's white color on the 1-3 days. 
It will turn brown and drop off naturally after 2-3 days. 
3rd day, The redness started to fade away. Normally the redness will fade away in 3-7 days.
I can apply my makeup on the 5th day after the dead skin peeling off. Doctor said there's no specific care is needed after treatment, just avoid sun and some skin products for a period of time after the treatment.

通常正常人第一次做Laser会红大概1个星期。
原本我还很担心自己的皮肤会不会红很久因为我的皮肤比较敏感
但是它只是红了3-4天,就开始脱皮了。我还以为第一次做不会有什么明显的效果,要做几次才能看得出分别。但是很意外,它蛮快复原,而且脱皮后...新的皮肤好好摸,凹凸洞也有明显的淡化,好开心哦!Laser后的第4/5天就能上妆了,好快!希望再做多几次后皮肤会有更多的进步。我还有4-5个疗程就做完了。

Btw, here's a very short Insta video of my Laser session. 15秒的短片。可以看看 ⋯⋯(^^)


这个是今天的照片,痘疤都明显的淡化了。

Last but not least, my current skin condition! Taken with my iPhone5,no filter at all.

I can feel the different even though it's just my first treatment. My skin has even out a bit, can't wait for my next sessions. Thanks to Dr.Rachel. I wish everyone out there can find your remedy too. Acne and pimple scars are the hardest to cure. So please, stop buying products that cost you a lot of money. Before that, get a doctor for consultation.  


我只想传达给大家的是不要放弃自己,要有耐心。我明白,经历这样的皮肤问题真的会让整个人很negative,但是它只是小小的磨练,挨过了你会更坚强了。因为我的皮肤状况,我也受了不少苦,好像每天都是世界末日那样,放弃了很多东西。但是这些通通都会过去的,真的会过去的。只要有恒心,它会复原的…要记住, 复原不是一天就可以的事,是需要很多很多很多耐心的。我也在努力着,如今是第3-4年了。好啦...希望我的脸可以越来越好转,等待那一天我能骄傲的告诉大家我的经历和成果。

  4. 我的皮肤虽然没有像你那么严重, 但还是让我非常自卑, 粗澡痘痘什么的的~ 也有好几个凹凸洞~ 但我现在比较懊恼的是皮肤敏感, 时不时就泛红, 脱皮, 发痒, 红肿~ 什么产品都不能用, 去facial也敏感~ 在家自己敷面膜也敏感~ 就"eczema" 。有些人跟我说是因为之前我敏感后去看皮肤专科然后就开始用他的药, 她说用医生要就是会依赖然后停不下来所以现在我一碰到其他产品就会开始敏感脱皮什么的。我看到你说你也有皮肤敏感的问题, 是想问你你用什么品牌的产品呢? 因为我用什么都敏感, 已经不知道可以用什么了~ :'(

  6. You are wasting a lot of money. The toxic and bacteria in your body is trying to detoxify itself.

    Go for fresh green apple juice, plus, carrot and tomato juice. Take it daily and your skin will clear by itself.

    The healing comes from inside, not from outside. The beauty center just want to make your money by charging you hundreds.

    I have faced this common problem. After taking fresh green apple juice, plus carrot and tomato juice, all the acne disappear. By skin smoothness and skin elasticity increases dramatically. You can add pineapple juice & orange juice as well.

    The key is freshness and natural. Not bottle juice. Antioxidant remains active when these fruits are fresh.

  7. 请问你怎么治痘痘啊?看到你说 hormone 问题吃医生开的药,只是那样?
    我之前也有吃过那种药,自己停了还有冒一点,可是敏感,痘痘又回来了…
    然后卸妆你用什么产品卸?也不知道是卸妆还是洗脸的问题,很多粉刺…
    预算有限,只好这里问你这些问题…谢谢回答~加油喔~

  8. Hi karen. I never write blogs until I saw your acne condition. I'm admired with your determination and persistence including your gym workout. I have once faced the same situation as you. Actually the acne condition comes from internal body, which stands 70% of our skin healthiness. Due to the daily food intake which is polluted, plus high acidity in your body thus producing toxics which leads to high production of acne vulgaris, which is reddish in colour. What I've done to heal up my acne and scars is the intake of organic food, which consists of 28 types of fruits and vegetables. This product is free from pollution and alkaline, which reduces the acidity of your body and detoxify your internal colon. Now my face is free from acne and owns a better skin complexion. Within a matter of 2-3 months i transformed my skin condition. No side effects will happen as this is natural food consisting of vege and fruits. Besides, it fix our internal body without having the needs to apply harsh skin care products to fix the skin acne, which is very safe and effective. Instead, lots of Taiwanese nowadays practice food therapy to cure skin disease and even cancer. So, I sincerely hope to have the chance to help you as I understand the feeling of having serious acne on face which lowers down our mental and physical strength. Hope to hear from you soon and have the chance to help you transform your life. My email is ivanho6823@gmail.com.

  17. Hi Karen, is this fractional CO2 laser? I believe Dr.Rachel has changed the name to customize the treatment she offered. Cause I've done fractional CO2 long time ago and I saw the pics you posted after the laser and it's similar to what I've experienced last time. I've done 6 sessions in a much lower price but of course it's without any followed up treatment, all I did was to use hydrating mask at home. Face appeared to be smoother after 6 sessions but i actually dont see much improvement on deep scars. Kindly advice if you know what exactly treatment is this and i might consider going back to this with Dr. Rachel. Thanks alot!

  42. 最近我也遭遇了痘痘问题啊,整个发际和下巴都是,就想说在美容院去洗脸,洗回来那几天还不错的,但是过后又回来了。或许是卫生问题吧,只是差不多快一年了,痘痘都是消了又回来,很伤心也很无奈。
    现在就在想要不要去看医美,激光或是镭射之类的,但是我的姐以前也是面对痘痘爆发问题,差不多10年前,她也去做镭射,现在皮肤却变薄,一晒阳光或是气候一热,整张脸宛如喝醉酒那么红。
    你做镭射后,也有特别保护皮肤?会有敏感状况出现吗?比如皮肤变薄,血管明显之类的?
