Best Treatment For Nose Pits? (Pics)

34 posts in this topic

Hi, me again.

After this length, I can report, that out of 2 particularly horrible life altering scars on my nose, one has filled in slightly. Maybe 30%.

That's about a year since individual needling, and TCA peels....so, one scar, as big as ever with no response, one scar, has filled in somewhat.

It's incredibly slow progress. Believe me, as much as anyone, I want an instant fix, but....I think honestly it'll take YEARS, if not more, to fill them in completely.

I have been needling, TCA 25% peels, etc, but....it really is just a very slow process. One scar on my nose has responded OK, with an improvement, the other deep scar, is not responding at all, and is still as bad as ever after needling and TCA.

So from your year of needling,

Which parts of the nose responds best to needling nd which parts does not respond well?

Sarah Vaughter of 'owndoc' doesn't recommend needling on the nose, I'd do some more research about your nose before you commit to needling that area.

I'm not saying dermaroller won't work on the nose

This is from owndoc's dermaroller pdf

'Scars on the nose All invasive skin treatments on the nose are risky because this area reacts and heals
unpredictable and it can end up worse. You can try a 1 mm dermastamp but never perform any aggressive
stamping here. Start slowly and try one small area first'

I don't have any scars on my nose, just pigmentation and some visible pores so I'm not the right person to give advice.

I can say that I've had fraxel restore and that didn't have any detrimental (nor positive) effect on my nose.

Hi guys,

Just back for as update, since its summer 2014! So I've been trying things for the past 2 years now.

I have found something that has definitely worked very well for me.

Disclaimer: do not try this without being aware that it may go very wrong for you, I have very tough skin.

I used 50% TCA as a spot treatment using a cotton bud on the side of my nose where the two worst pits are. I have lots of huge pores but these two ones are the bane of my life...or they were. Warning: Not everyone's skin is going to be able to take 50% TCA, and the results are very, very unpredictable so be warned. I'm not advising that people use it.

I put the 50% solution onto a cotton bud, and applied it vigorously to the area. The frosting was so intense it lasted for hours. At this point I was terrified that I had done serious damage. Even more terrifying, the result scab was large, deep, and lasted three weeks. I thought when it finally came off I was going to be left with a huge hole in my nose.

And, onto the bad stuff first - I was left with a hollow in my nose where the tca was, the whole area is slightly sunken now. This will show you how dangerous TCA at this strength it. I can't stress that enough. but it's not noticable except in certain lighting and it doesn't bother me too much - because the two freakin massive scarred pores that I was treating have been massively filled in. This is actually 3 months after I did it, so it's looking very good now. It's not perfect and the large pores are still visible, but they are SO much improved.

I had this problem and when I take a shower (Hot showers) i use Toothpaste with baking soda,, it helps to open the pores and clean them out. this is the second week that I have done this with every shower and it has improved my skin..
