I know I must sound incredibly vain, specially with all the thing that we are all going thru. The thing is, I don't like the idea of growing old gracefully. I always thought that I could get a little help here and there. Nothing big, no surgeries or anything like that, just a little help.
Ever since I was a child I have crunched my forehead when I talk. Now, after 44 years, it had left a deeep crease making me look much older that I really am.
Again, it sounds crazy but I would love to put something there so it doesn't show so much. I have try to get info about this and scleroderma but I can't find anything conclusive.
Does anyone knows about this subject?
Thanks for listening.

You don't sound vain at all. I think there are many of us that would do some sort of cosmetic treatment if we thought we could.
I just recently asked my rheumatologist about this very thing. He was dead set against injecting anything into my body because he felt with the crazy immune system we have we have no idea how our bodies will react to the foreign substance being injected. He personally has seen some really bad scaring and mutation with Sclero patients due to lip injections and botox injection. He didn't have a problem with my undergoing a surgical procedure however such as getting my eyes done. But frankly he worried me enough, that I don't think I'll do that either.

It was really good to read your post. I want so much to try a couple of things. It's really tough though to know if you've found a good dermatologist or not. How do you know? Just because they say they are? There are so many unknowns, that I just shy away from it in the end.
