Just checking back in over a year later. The results are phenomenal. I'd estimate at least 70% improvement to my cystic scarring at a minimum. The before pictures I posted don't show how bad it truly was. Now my scars are hardly visible in even the most severe lighting. I never expected one round of subcision to achieve these results. Also, I think taking vitamin C and collagen supplements in the weeks after helped regenerate tissue.

I have a question, if you don't mind. Do you feel lumps or slightly hardened tissue under the spots where you had the scars? I mean, when you rub your fingers on your skin do you feel as if you had some sort of filler applied under the scars?

 

Thanks in advance and congratulations! Few people come back to report long-term results. If some kind of divine justice exists I'm sure you'll be rewarded one day.

I am not familiar with this procedure, but it really is an amazing difference! I will recommend it to my brother who has the exact same scarring on his cheeks!


For boosting collagen production: consuming organic gelatin has helped me very much to improve my skin's elasticity and plumpness (like springing back, I guess?) and healing since my acne has gone away, though I only have one dented scar on my face and that is from the chicken pox... everything else was very superficial. I also got a friend of mine who is a relatively recent amputee eating it, and his scarring is much cleaner and has started to blend in with the rest of the skin. I highly recommend it in general, and I don't want to advertise for the brand, so just look for unflavored gelatin. You can't eat too much of it. It's essentially pure protein, and can be added to just about anything hot and liquid. I add it to soups, but have also used it for jello shots. It's very versatile!

Wow, I am very impressed with the result. Do you think subcision would be effective for ice pick scars? I believe I have a lot of scar tissues underneath my acne scars, which is why I never got good results from laser treatments + Intracel + dermarolling. If you don't mind, could you share who the doctor was please? Also, have you been using any facial products since the procedure?

 

Lastly, for anybody looking at this post, is alldaychemist.com legit? I am trying to get retin-a online, but owndoc's cost is outrageous. If there are any additional websites that I can order retin-a from, please share. Thanks in advance.

I have this from my subcision - it is scar tissue that formed as a result of the injury. It looks bumpy and I'm not pleased with the results overall because of it. It has been 6 months since my procedure, so at this point I'm not sure massage will be of much more use. Have you had issues with this?

I'm not sure if ice pick scars would beneft because I don't have any. In terms of lumps, the day after subcision it looked like I had golf balls under my skin, but I looked normal within a week. Some of the lumps however took months to go away. They weren't visible, I could just feel them under my skin. I think that lumps are a good thing though, that they're somehow crucial in the process of rebuilding collagen and keeping the scars untethered. Today there is no hardened lumpiness anywhere because they all diminished with time. Here are some pics of my face in natural daylight. Keep in mind you can still see the scars but they're all very shallow. There's no longer any deep shadows when my face is under lighting.

When I had subcision done I had those lumps under my skin. Two months after the procedure I went back to the doctor and he injected something into them (I don't remember what) and a few days later the lumps disappeared. The lumps were not my only concern. The treated areas were still  dark purple two months after the procedure, so I knew something was wrong. I was his first subcision patient and, of course, that doctor didn't dominate the right technique.

The ice pick scar near my chin improved a lot from subcision. In terms of lumps, the day after subcision it looked like I had golf balls under my skin, but I looked normal within a week. Some of the lumps however took months to go away. They weren't visible, I could just feel them under my skin. I think that lumps are a good thing though, that they're somehow crucial in the process of rebuilding collagen and keeping the scars untethered. Today there is no hardened lumpiness anywhere because they all diminished with time. Here are some pics of my face in natural daylight. Keep in mind you can still see the scars but they're all very shallow. There's no longer any deep shadows when my face is under lighting.

Again, congratulations! Those are wonderful results. :)

Your skin looks great!  Looks like your kind of scarring was perfectly suited for subcision, meaning they were mostly the rolling type with normal skin texture.  Thanks for the update.

Look into another round of subcision - suction with fat grafting as a filler. You should be all set.

It was performed by Dr. William Staggers. He's done this procedure many times and is thus very skilled.

 

I've been using rosehip oil on my face the past few months which has had a great effect on skin tone and texture.

Thank you for the pictures, you are looking great, you stated in your post with the latest pictures saying "natural daylight" i assume that the picture was taken outdoor under the sky, just wondering if you were under any shelter or was it just the sky above you?
