  1. Just had subcision - documenting w/ photos!

    Some people need 3-5 subcisions to get to the point where they are comfortable with their scars. You could consider coupling it with microneedling once a month or so. Also there's fillers. Don't give up yet.
  2. Rolling vs boxcar & subcision

    Perfect candidate for subcision. With boxcars you can usually ablate the skin with lasers and peels, though it is an lenghty process. I've seen subcision work for both rolling and boxcar scars :). Go for it.
  3. he does both
  4. I'd like a professional to be able to address the widely expressed claim that acne scar sufferers have bad healing capabilities? I, for one, hardly ever get sick and have never broken a bone, although do I strain muscles often but this is momentary. The only scars on my body are found only on my face, nowhere else.. and those have improved quite a bit through treatments and time. No matter how harshly I pick or squeeze scabs or those rare pimples on my leg or chest -- they never scar. So to say that we have bad healing capabilities it highly subjective, especially if you, yourself notice that your auto-immune system sucks.. And the whole Accutane resulting in poor healing hasn't been thoroughly researched and I believe, has been debunked. An old case study, I believe was the sole premise to the fear-mongering, highly perpetuated, shenanigans regarding accutane we see today. @Topic The results are probable. I would look into subcision, tca cross and microneedling first... before venturing into lasers, however.
  5. Meeting new people

    Pm me, i'll give you my whatsapp. I'm a guy though, so that's that.
  6. Starting TCA CROSS, should I make videos on it?

    Yes, but please make sure you start with one scar. Don't do all of them because...what if the outcome is not what you were expecting and as a result, you come out looking like a freak? So one scar and vlog it and keep us updated on it.
  7. Scar Success!

    She had boxcar scars. This wont do anything for rolling scars
  8. Sublative RF and doctors

    $1200 for 4 is a very good price, unfortunately, it seems like it achieved nothing at all in terms of improvement? What kind of scarring you have?
  9. Paying for treatment - Advice needed.

    Consider Ultra low dose accutane for mild but persistent acne: Ultra-Low dose Accutane efficacy:http://dermatologytimes.modernmedicine.com/dermatology-times/news/clinical/clinical-pharmacology/low-dose-high-rates-success http://www.edermatologynews.com/news/conference-news/european-academy-of-dermatology-and-venereology/single-article/low-dose-isotretinoin-tames-adult-acne/e1f64f6a7249e37fb68fe2de1d860e11.html?tx_ttnews%5BsViewPointer%5D=1 Dermabrasion whilst on accutane: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/41561138_Dermabrasion_for_Acne_Scars_During_Treatment_with_Oral_Isotretinoin Other abstract articles: ABSTRACT: Background: The current standard recommendation is to avoid surgical interventions in patients taking oral isotretinoin. However, this recommendation has been questioned in several recent publications. Aim: To document the safety of cosmetic and surgical interventions, among patients receiving or recently received oral isotretinoin. Materials and methods: Association of Cutaneous Surgeons, India, in May 2012, initiated this study, at 11 centers in different parts of India. The data of 183 cases were collected monthly, from June 2012 to May 2013. Of these 61 patients had stopped oral isotretinoin before surgery and 122 were concomitantly taking oral isotretinoin during the study period. In these 183 patients, a total of 504 interventions were performed. These included[1] 246 sessions of chemical peels such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and combination peels;[2] 158 sessions of lasers such as ablative fractional laser resurfacing with erbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet and CO2, conventional full face CO2 laser resurfacing, laser-assisted hair reduction with long-pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet, diode laser, and LASIK surgery;[3] 27 sessions of cold steel surgeries such as microneedling, skin biopsy, subcision, punch elevation of scars, excision of skin lesion, and wisdom tooth extraction;[4] 1 session of electrosurgery. Results: No significant side effects were noted in most patients. 2 cases of keloid were documented which amounted to 0.4% of side effects in 504 interventions, with a significant P value of 0.000. Reversible transient side effects were erythema in 10 interventions and hyperpigmentation in 15. Conclusion: The study showed that performing dermatosurgical and laser procedures in patients receiving or recently received isotretinoin is safe, and the current guidelines of avoiding dermatosurgical and laser interventions in such patients taking isotretinoin need to be revised.
  10. Brian Turner's new microneedling review video

    Surprised the doctor didn't suggest subcision too. Frankly, I believe subcision alone would have given him better results.
