would you say that the pictures on their site are a lie? I'm looking at the nose one , and honestly it seems pretty decent

 

likely real but obviously they will only be posting their best work (it's advertising)

 

for extremely deep (and/or difficult) scars, would very likely need much more than 5 treatments

 

... the issue is healing time. 7-9 treatments with minimal healing time of 2-3 weeks between treatments. looking at 14-27 weeks.

 

with so many treatments, it starts to get very expensive

Hi all,

 

I came across this thread recently when I was researching about cora therapy. 

 

For those who have received treatment in Korea, could you help to share how they go about doing the subcision undermining?

 

Do they pinch the area and insert the 24G~26G needle size horizontally then do the fanning motion?

This seems similar to Cosmetic Acupuncture or Facial Rejuvenation that's offered in the US. Although I guess they are much more aggressive to break up scar tissue underneath the skin.

 

From what I've researched, the American Cosmetic Acupuncture Association website seems to be dead. So not sure what happened to them. Probably had to shut down due to liability problems and not being licensed doctors. Or pressure from plastic surgeons and dermatologists whose practice they're encroaching on. Acupuncturists in the U.S. are not doctors and are only L.Ac. or licensed acupuncturists.

 

I'm guessing the Korean version is a more advanced one combined with lasers/other traditional scar treatments. The majority of the cost is probably due to labor, to micromanage the needles to break up tissue. To get skilled acupuncturists with experience to treat your scars you'd probably have to go to Korea.

Can anybody tell how to do it self?

And how is it works? I don't get it... 

What the difference between subcision or needling and this technique?
