Looking into doing some needling done by a professional. They know what topicals to use.There are groupon deals in my area for needling with PRP.

The thing that worries me about needling is that it causes inflammation, and it is possible that some of this AMVC or whatever, spontaneous scarring could be caused by inflammation. I do have a dermaroller, but like with everything, I am too scared to use it >_< Maybe a year or so down the road if my scars haven't gone or at least improved enough I might give it a try, but with a dermastamp for individual scars. I do know I personally could never afford professional treatments, though :/

Hi, I've done a little bit of research on AMVC... as I was actually experiencing spontaneous scarring for a short period of time and for whatever reason eventually stopped getting new scars. I wonder if subcision would be the safest way to go in this kind if situation? Since you are just treating the scars themselves and not surrounding skin...less chance of inflammation triggering more scars. Has anyone had this done? I'm just curious. I feel so sorry for anyone who has to deal with this.

Hi I was only accurate from age of 19. and had a few bouts of it. Some years down the line with no acne breakouts I have developed scarring out of nowhere . I've tried numerous of lasers etc. No results. I totally stopped looking in the mirror now. No one seems to know we're my scars come from.

Hi, my scarring is very shallow, you almost can't tell it is a scar some times....but my worst scar is slightly pink, so it looks so obvious :( Were any of your scars discolored or were they just skin colored? If so did redness go away? It has been 5 months for me and am wondering if the color of it will ever go away. Even if my worst scar doesn't fill in, it would look heaps better if it weren't red/pink. I also have icepick type scars from this mess. I have for sure narrowed the cause down to AHA+ use. Worst decision I ever made in my life, using that stuff! I regret it every day. I no longer get spontaneous scars, just trying to repair the damage I am left with at this point. Anyway, for me I don't think subcision would be the way to go since like I said my scarring is extremely shallow and wide, and I heard that subcision is not meant for shallow scars. My derm said she thought it would plump up and fade away on it's own with time, but I don't know. This scar is weird, since it came out of nowhere I have no idea if it will heal or improve any like a normal scar would. I ordered some MSM cream because I read a few people having success with that. I don't have high hopes but I am desperate so anything is worth a try. I'll let you guys know if it helps me at all.

The only thing that could possibly work is microneedling. Make sure you apply a quality vitamin C serum afterwards. Also, as you may know, seeing improvement will take a very long time, unfortunately. It's easy to get frustrated and discouraged and want to give up, but don't.

Also, I wouldn't advise listening to people who say to needle/stamp every week...absolutely ridiculous. At most once every 2 weeks if you want to be aggressive. As for MSM cream, I have heard some people reporting success....I tried MSM cream but it was only for a month and I didn't see any notable improvement. I would say try for vitamin C since it's the main ingredient shown to help with collagen, but definitely combine your topical application of it with needling of some sort so the stuff gets deep into your scar tissue.
