  1. Got Subcision (Before / After Pics)

    pic updates with low-quality phone camera, as you can see the scars are faint when relaxed compared to smiling, but still much less prominent and more shallow compared to before subcision http://oi67.tinypic.com/ejx5sj.jpg http://oi64.tinypic.com/16k2hza.jpg I think my scars have even improved since a few years ago, they're barely noticeable now >.< I still continue to take youtheory collagen on a daily basis
  2. 5 lasers later my skins the worst its ever been

    Just logged in to say that I also had a terrible experience with laser treatment, specifically Fraxel Repair. I had it done on both entire sides of my face and it made almost no difference to the scars but gave my skin a very dry, orange-peel texture that turns red easily and doesn't deal well with sunlight. It's been about 5 years since then but it's improved a ton since that first year, I think applying rosehip oil everyday religiously made a big difference. One round of subcision however with no fillers made a massive difference to my scarring, even though many doctors like to claim it's "outdated" because laser is so much easier and marketable. If you have sensitive skin I recommend you stay far away from lasers, the only scarring I think it could improve is very shallow superficial scarring.
  3. Got Subcision (Before / After Pics)

    Hey I don't have a good-quality camera at the moment but my face still looks just as smooth if not better than in those last pictures. One simple round of subcision with no fillers was enough to make this much of a difference, despite the fact that it's considered "outdated" by many doctors who push laser treatments. I was taking Youtheory collagen supplements and vitamin C in the period after the procedure and continue to take them up to this day, which may have contributed to the buildup of collagen during the healing process. I don't plan on doing anything to my face ever again apart from applying rosehip oil everyday, which has helped to improve my skin texture over time. My skin will obviously never be as smooth as a newborn baby's but it doesn't bother me having a bit of roughness to it, I'm just happy that the deep-shadowed craters are gone. Just to reiterate my subcision was performed by Dr. William Staggers in Fairhope, Alabama.
