March 20, 2010 Full Face - Final Photo

This is how my face looks today after three subcision treatments, several dermarolling sessions, and a Pearl Fractional Laser treatment.

As you can see, my face is not perfect.  But, I feel that I have seen tremendous improvement from where I began.

I hope that my journey will encourage you on your journey as well.

    Man, your scars give me so much motivation. Well, the improvement you had is what i mean. It gives me much hope about one day me being able to get my face to improve as much as yours did. Can you by any chance tell me about how much money youve spend on all these treatments in total, just to see the kind of money i'll have to dish out to get improvements like yours? Im young and still struggling to make it on my own but pretty soon I'll have some money dedicated for this.
    HI, it seems like a great improvement. What would u say is % of improvement of the rollingr scar with the subcisions in your case.
    
    Hi.  I have read on your posts that you did "vacumning" on your face after you had your third subcision treatment...and that you were very impressed with the results and think that possibly you would not have had to get as many subcision treatments had you done it after the first one.  I am going for my first subcision on Thursday (April 5th, 2012).
    
    I have had 2 pearl fractional laser treatments just to heal and find that my scarring did not change at all.  After doing some reasearch I found that possibly subcision would work.  After already spending so much money on lasers I am really couting on this to work.  I would like to try the vacuming method you mentioned...but I am just confused and would like more information on what you did.  Was this done in the doctor's office or did you actually take your personal vacumn cleaner and do this.  Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much for your time!!
    
    
    Hello.
    I began suctionning my face on day three and used a hand-held Oreck brand vacuum sweeper. I used one hand on the nozzle to restrict the suctionning power because our nozzle was too powerful to apply it directly to my face.

    I did several passes two to three times a day for two weeks. It had an amazing effect on my left check. Three scars lifted very well and I can't seem them anymore!
    I did the suctionning at home and not at the doctor's office.
    Hi Mr. Matt.
    Thanks for sending an email with some information. I tried to write you back...but I received a message that says I do not have permission to send an email.

    I went to the doctor yesterday and the doctor did inject a mixture of cortisone and mostly water into the big lumps on my face. These lumps are pretty big. This was 24 hours ago and I still have the lumps and they haven't gone down at all. When I used to have acne cysts injected they would be completely down the next morning. Do you mind me asking how long it took your lump which was injected to go down? If it's not down by tomorrow (48 hours after injection) do you think I should have it injected again? Again, I am so sorry for bothering you. It is just so refershing to see a normal person that has gone through this as well. The people at the doctors office act like I'm crazy...but they don't have acne scars OR huge lumps all over their faces :) Thanks so much :)
    Wow there is hope. Congrats you look awesome.

    It took a good six weeks for my swelling and bruising to completely subside. I looked like I had gotten into a bad street fight and lost miserably. The pain and downtime was definitely worth it - I had the most dramatic results from the fourth round of subcision that I had.

    I would say that I have at least 70-80% overall improvement in the appearance of my scars.

    I spent about $400 for each subcision treatment, $600 for three Laser Genesis treatments, $800 for a Pearl Fractional laser treatment (if I remember correctly). It was money well spent!
