Doctor Finds Non-Surgical Treatment for Self-Harm Scars While Helping Hawaii Five-0 Actress

Michelle Borth is opening up about her history of self-harm — and how a non-surgical procedure, which made her scars virtually invisible, has helped her move forward. “I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety probably for as long as I can remember. It started in my really early teens, probably 12-13,” the Hawaii Five-0 actress, 41, tells PEOPLE. “I just became very reclusive and very angry and so I started acting out. I quickly then found escape in drugs and substance abuse because they offered me a momentary relief of overwhelming emotions. And with that came cutting.” By the time she was 17, Borth’s life had spiraled out of control.
