Did the entry point leave any type of markings/scars?

They were needle wounds that healed quickly. I see two little dark dots that might have been left behind from them, but it's hard to tell.

Two before pics, one after pic of right side. Keep in mind that I took the after picture in the harshest lighting possible by holding a bright light directly over my face. There's no longer the deep shadows from the craters, even in horrible lighting.


Outstanding results!

Thanks for sharing your story.

Yes it is ridiculously hard to find a doctor that does this. The nearest one I could find is 2 hours away. I wish we could compile some sort of list of doctors who perform this, and other treatments.

Thanks all. Does anyone know if I sleep with my face against the pillow it will increase the chances of the scars retethering?

very impressed with the results that I see here!! Posted Image I have almost identical acne scarring from cystic acne and it gives me hope to see that these are the results from a successful subcision!!

i can't answer the pillow question but i have personally never heard of this concern from previous subcision patients. AFAIK the best way to prevent retethering is to use a subcision-suction method the next time you perform it or to get temporary fillers after the procedure. sleeping on your face seems quite trivial in comparison...

can you give us a % improvement that you feel you got? ultimately, do you feel better about yourself?

Sverd- Great results. Congrats.

Michi31- It is extremely hard to find a doctor that offers many options for scarring. If you make that list please let me know. I have a few names I can contribute from the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

At least 50% at a minimum. Yes, I no longer feel insecure about my scars. I'm far more social now.

Checking back in months later, I would say the appearance of my scars has improved slightly even more. The ridge on my right side is hardly visible now. I've been taking vitamin C and youtheory collagen supplements everyday.

Rob, you're making me want to get this stuff now. I passed it off as a "meh" thing when you replied to my stretch mark thread, and now I found my way here and saw your progress pictures - hot damn! I'm excited, it seems Retin-A works wonders. How do you get yours? I don't have insurance right now, so I don't think going to a dermatologist for an rx is going to work.

Your results look really good. I live in Birmingham, Alabama and I've been trying to find a doctor that can perform the subcision treatment for such a long time now. What's the name of your doctor and the office that you went to in Fairhope? I'd be willing to give it a shot even though it would be a long distance to go for me.

 

Also, did you have to schedule a consultation first? And how much did your treatment cost? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all I'm just reporting back to say that if anything my scars have gotten better over time. It's amazing to me the results after one treatment of subcision, and even more amazing that it was so hard to find a doctor that did it since the procedure is considered "outdated" even though I got far better results from one subcision than Fraxel Repair.

I messaged you. For anyone else wondering I had the subcision done in Alabama and it was $1500 for both sides of my entire face. I know this price is high but I had huge surface areas to cover and my surgeon was very skilled so I don't regret it.
