    Any face brushers left?

    Hi @ll!

    I am brushing my face since one week now and don't see any results so far.

    Some weeks ago, I saw some comments here, that several people had good results with face brushing.
    Their scars built collagen and got filled in a little bit.

    Is someone of these guys left here? I am really interested in an update to hear their results.

    Thanks

    Scare

    Hi, I have done the face brushing, but only moderately. First, it was difficult to brush a tiny scar with a regular face brush. But, the scars that I did brush seemed to raise slightly (I thought maybe I didn't brush it hard or long enough).

    Also, as of yesterday, I scraped a scar with a small surgical blade. It only sounds painful and daring, but it really did not hurt. I used the small blade because I found that when I brushed the scar, I would end up brushing the areas around the scar (which would also get red or bruised). It is still a little pink and healing, I am still putting A and D ointment on it (The neosporin seemed to make me break out, and for me it wasn't healing as fast as the A and D).

    Hi Annabelle, I'm curious...what type of scar did you scrape with the blade? Was it a raised-type scar or an ice pick or pit? Thanks! I like the A & D too.

    It was actually a very, very shallow saucer shaped indent. It is still healing and a liitle red so I can't tell if it has improved as yet. I really don't have ice pick scars, only a few really shallow scars.

    to all of you who did face brushing and at the same time you take accutane.
    Based on what i got recently, i would inform you.

    this is a quote from ACCUTANE_medguide.pdf entitled "medication guide for all patients" issued by roche:
    "do not have cosmetic procedures to smooth your skin including waxing, dermabrasion, or laser procedures while you are taking on accutane and at least 6 months after you stop". its increase a chance of scaring"

    i hope this remark have been known by all of you. if you do not yet know, stop right away doing face brush method with tooth brush or sponge or anything when you are including with this point.
    be carefull and keep persevere.

    @ AnnabelleC:

    Does this mean, that you had no improvment brushing your faces?

    I thought it was good and helps building collagen!

    Please explain!

    Can someone tell us what facebrushing is, and what kind of brush to use. Does it help with the red marks. I cant seem to get the reddish/brown marks to go away. Any suggestions?

    xiho, I did have a slight improvement, but when I used the brush I found that it was difficult just to brush the small scar without brushing surrounding areas.

    The scar I scraped with the surgical blade has healed and it does show some improvement also. I will have to try it again.
