  1. Did infini destroy my skin?

    I just wanted to thank everyone for their supportive words and help. Means heaps So far I am waiting it out. Dr. Lim was kind enough to email me, mail me and also called me personally at night to talk me through it. He has said to give it a few months, that it will looks worse before it gets better, and that anything can be helped, that he has a multitude of procedures, just that we have to see how my skin goes for now. I really appreciated that, because when you see your skin and it looks worse, it really can do a number with your head, and make you think the worst. So here's hoping, at least I have a caring doctor to support me, as well as this board.

    When treatments are making your skin worse, then by definition they are not improving your skin. This 'negative stuff' is largely a direct consequence of having saved up money, hope and time for my skin to permanently look worse than before. Furthermore, when the aforementioned treatments are performed by a doctor who is the 'best' in his field, no has 'leading edge technology' but they make you look worse-being detrimental to your self image, and future career- then there isn't really hope for other treatments, again causing a spiral into this 'negative stuff'. Talking to someone I think won't solve the issue of destroyed skin. like i said previously, I hate posting this negative stuff. I want success. I want it for myself. Want it so others can also have hope. But it is what it is
  3. Did infini destroy my skin?

    My skin is getting so much worse. It's almost three weeks. At this point I don't trust infini nor Dr. Lim ive given up hope. I went in there for skin texture and scars. There must be something wrong with my skin. Right now I have more scars and deeper scars than ever before. Ive wasted my time. Yeah money. My life. I've just signed a deferrment on uni. I doubt I'll return. I refuse to see my family or friends anymore . They see my in getting worse and ask me why I went there, what's the point etc etc. i used to be good looking. I was supposed to have an agent. Regardles of whether people have it worse, the point is my skin is much worse than when I began.

    what risk? I thought it was just the donut effect. I dont know how much longer I can wait to fix this. I cant stand looking at myself. I cant handle being around people, I was feeling bit better about myself. Dr. Naomi has used skin boosters, but my previous fillers from elsewhere havent dissolved and its almost a year! Ive called Urepublic and they arent taking new patients until June. I asked them to please slot me in where they can because I am desperate. And now these two smaller new scars due to the pimples and stupid me popping them! They hurt bad, and i was worried the longer they were there, the more damage. They popped and all. Now i have two more new ones to add to the bunch of scars. My skin is just horrible and very noticable now. I saved up for ages -almost two years- to have this treatments and fly up there. Look what happened. I feel hideous and and so upset right now, and I hate having to type this terrible, depressing stuff. I want to be like "yes! it is getting better". I try SO hard. for what? Ill post pics on here.

    I have been on oral HA and a host of other things also to help. I stopped after a month. I wouldve loved to do subscision with saline, but it wasnt offered. Thanks for your advice though, ill have to look into that more I emailed and called him after my first treatment when I was seeing negative reactions. He emailed and sent me a letter addressing my concernes. He has told me I would be a difficult case to treat, because of previous treatments that I have done and fillers in for my scars that have donated and not fully worked. The negative reactions were not really in areas with fillers for scars though. Anyway, on the day of my appointment I arrived earlier and he took some more pics and spoke to me, which I appreciate. He compared the first photo prior to treatments and the ones just taken. He pointed out there improvement in certain areas and divots, and from the photos it seemed apparent. However, I do not see these scars in every angle of light I look at, not noticeable. All my noticeable scars, even the SHALLOWEST ones haven’t really improved, and only some of my skin texture. He said “not really knowing what is scar and what isn’t” and that my skin needs to rest for a few months, to maybe come back if I want in 3-4 months time for another infini. He is trying to do overall improvement, and then do a targeted approach. Except the overall improvement hasn’t done much, though according to him and the pictures it has, but as I said even my shallowest scars haven’t improved. The thing is, he says he doesn’t know what is really scar because other people have gone in there and treated with filler etc and it has donuted, whatever. It is quite apparent which parts are very tethered tbh, This time last year an aesthetician performed dermapen on me, three sessions, which made my skin texture worse and started causing scarring. I went to try having some filler in my scar at one place, made it appear more apparent. I went to Dr. Naomi (who is excellent in fillers my mum goes to her and she is a genius) but even her filler technique didn make my scars that less noticeable and made them appear a bit deeper. I flew to Dr. Lim and then this happens with my skin. There is no hope! I do want to thank you for your kind words though, BeauitfulAmbition
  6. Did infini destroy my skin?

    I really wish I had something positive to say! I hate writing such sad, depressing posts, but I'm so frustrated and angry right now! im a week out from my second infini/fractional co2/Prp treatment. Lo' and behold, my skin has deeper scars, newer depressions, and previously unseen shallows and dips in my skin. why? I don't understand how it could keep doing this. I'm thinking of quitting now. Is there anyone in the world who can actually treat me WITHOUT making it worse?!?!?! i didn't eat much today. Feel too upset
  7. I think I'm done with infini. Done with life really i had my second infini with Prp and low level fractional c02. It's been a week. I know that you can't see the result etc etc. but my scars look worse. I mean now on my RIGHt cheek I have some new shallow rolling scars. before my treatment I had a little pimple ony left cheek. A quick pop and it was gone. The treatment was the next day. Now I have a dent there: like wtf?!!!! the doctor showed the before and after pics. It seemed it got better according to him and what he saw. He looked at scars I have never noticed in real life. why haven't any of the visible scars gotten better? Actually now I have even more? im refusing to eat. I'm so done
  8. Did infini destroy my skin?

    Hi beautiful ambition, im from Sydney but i had the treatment done elsewhere in Australia by Dr Lim. Ive had one previous CO2Re treatment with him (low density co2 I think it's fractionated also) and it worked out okay, not much improvement just some texture improvement. but this is scary. Like in a week the loss of collagen and the dips in my skin. My jaw looks so much worse than I've ever had it, my scars were definitely not like this. I worry about fillers there because I do have a hypertrophic scar that's bound all the way down which dr. Lim is also treating, but fillers would like donut around it and not sit correctly I think... i use bia fine all the time, even without treatments. I used Osmosis stem factor the first few days after treatment and the aqueous moisturiser they gave me, as well as QV intensive on top (which is occlusive) that they've given me previously. So it's very moisturised. I take neocell collagen, HA supplement, bovine collagen supplement, zinc, vitamin c, liquid multi, liquid minerals, vit d supplement, eat no sugar or dairy only healthy foods, and avoid the sun (always use sunscreen) this is has really destroyed my confidence...
  9. So a week ago I had infini done with low density co2 and Prp mask all my skin seems to be healing okay, except along my right jawline. All my scars are so much worse! And when I saw worse, I mean like deep areas loss of volume, increase in tethered scars and rolling scars. Anything that was just barely visible before is so much deeper and worse and scars I never had or noticed ate now apparent. is this part of the healing process? My jaw was NEVER like this before. I know if from every angle and light. Please help me, right now seeing this the anxiety is so bad I can't even breathe properly oh God just to see the pic and upload it the pain
  10. Feeling heaps low after a couple months of feeling great. Am am not doing uni work. Left work early yesterday. A week ago I had infini with low density co2 and prp. My skin all over seems to be healing okay...except along my right jawline where some of the worst scaring is. Rolling and tethered scars that were only barely visible on some lights towards my chin are now so much deeper! There seems to be like a huge dip and that dip is riddled with tethered scars and everything I had looks so much deeper. I don't know if this is supposed to be part of the healing process... but I can't breathe. I'm trying to fix this- I don't want it to be worse
