Just posting to see if there are any updates from anybody using ALA for acne scars.

I primarily have icepick scarring on my cheeks.
I was concerned about clogging pores since I still get blackheads and whiteheads so after the first week I have only been using this on a small area where the scarring is the worst.
I have been using the Perricone HP FFA for 3 1/2 weeks and am also taking a multivitamin, esterC, DMAE and ALA.

From Perricone's book, he said that between weeks 4 and 8 he began to notice all participants had significant reductions in fine lines around the eyes. Between weeks 8 and 12, they had a decrease in the depth of deep facial lines. "The one great surprise was that scars diminished on some of my patients after they began using the lotion." He also said that in a later study at his office, patients had an overall 70-80% improvement in acne scars after 6 months of using the topical lotion.

I'm not sure what timeframe he is associating with "after they began using the lotion."

So far I and have not seen any noticeable changes.
I would imagine that this is going to take time if it does work. Although I think MickeyM saw improvements after 4-5 weeks?

I hope someone is having some luck. I think there are a few people on the board trying it. Please let us know how things are going if you are using the Perricone FFA or CamoCare.


PS- TINA: Did you ever receive the info from Perricone's company?
