I know what nokor needles are. That's not what they use. It does not have the flat sharp edge. It looked just like a syringe needle without the flat triangular sharp edge. They looked exactly like this: http://sell.bizrice....mic-needle.html

Hi jacecali, thanks for posting your progress so far. I have very similar scars to you, and if this turns out to be successful, then I may even travel to South Korea to have this doctor perform the same thing on me.

However, I ask if you could please post your end result photo in identical lighting to the original photo (directly overhead). In fact, if you could take the picture at the same time of day and place it would be ideal. One thing I've noticed is that almost every acne scar before and after picture is in different lighting. Even most of the posters on this forum who claim success (such as Mr. Matt) take their before and after photos in completely different lighting.

Direct lighting from camera flashes actually do very well to conceal acne scars. Overhead lighting exposes it.

There is no doubt that there will be SOME improvement, since subcision / needling seem to post the best results. I hope that you can accurately depict what others with similar scars can expect from these procedures.

Thanks, and I'll be following this thread for sure! Looking good!

Hey TrendyCat,

Yeah for sure I'll take the exact same after picture. The pictures that I posted up after my 2nd treatment wasn't for comparison, but just to show you guys what I look like after the treatment. The after picture, I'll take after my sixth session. Also, I know pictures can be hard to believe so, I took a video of myself before getting my 1st session. After the 6th I'll take the same exact picture and video.

mmmmmmmmm scammm scam


Hey Maldition,

Could you explain how this is a scam? Am I advertising this stuff? Am I going around saying that this a miracle treatment that will for sure fix your scars? I don't understand so fill me in please.....

Maldition seems to have a trend of posting "scam!" on many treatments without actually elaborating on why they think this is the case. Not to badmouth them but I haven't come across a post of theirs that has made much sense.

As for your progress, how are you going? I know others are asking for photos but I prefer to hear about the experience and how it has made you feel about your skin. Photos are great but they only tell so much, or can be misleading even when that's not the intention. I'm more interested in hearing whether the person found the treatment worth it. So, may I pry and ask you a few things?

1. Did your doctor give you an idea of how much improvement to expect? In terms of % or any other measurable means? And, I know it's early days but, have you seen any improvement or are you still waiting for swelling etc to die down?

2. What is your after-care like? Do you have to put any specific topicals on your skin, stay out of the sun etc?

3. Do you mind sharing the cost factor with us? :)

Thank you Jacecali! It's people like you who are willing to bare all and show the rest of us what you're going through that makes this community great. The only way we'll beat acne scars is if we share knowledge and get excited about the progress of others. :)

Hey Quirky Fox,

1. Did your doctor give you an idea of how much improvement to expect? In terms of % or any other measurable means? And, I know it's early days but, have you seen any improvement or are you still waiting for swelling etc to die down? The doctor told me for sure 90%. As for improvement, I can see some on my cheeks and don't know if my eyes are playing tricks on me, but the 3 spots I have on my forehead, are pretty much filled. There's only a dark brown mark but the skin has totally raised and it doesn't have the crater. So I guess I can say that I see some improvement. But the ones on my forehead are not my biggest concern. It's the one's on my cheeks. I use to have dimples because of my scar but now the dimple is starting to fade when I smile, so I'm assuming that it's filling in the hole which is making it difficult to form the dimple. I actually liked the dimple but I would rather much have the hole filled in. Posted Image Oh, and the swelling goes down after 5 days but still a little red.

2. What is your after-care like? Do you have to put any specific topicals on your skin, stay out of the sun etc? Currently I'm applying toner, post procedure cream (EFI 30), and moisturizer. I also take vitamin C every morning. I don't really see the sun much cause I"m home most of the time and go out at night.

3. Do you mind sharing the cost factor with us? The treatment cost $650 per session ( they are planning to increase the price)

I hope this helps, and if you do have any more questions, feel free to ask anytime. I'll keep you guys updated after every session.

really hope to have the best of results

could you ask your doctor about any details(journals papers?) regards to the procedure?
you could tell him that knowing how this works, your body can respond better (body-mind/thoughts relationship)..

would be really helpful :)

Hey Panos,
I'm sorry but what do you mean by journals paper? Do you mean like documents on how exactly the procedure is done? I'm not sure if he's willing to give out too much info but will ask...

hm would be good not to go so far...but i mean if you could ask some minimal scientific paper of how this works so you can study it
and feel sure about the procedure..would be so helpful...the more you ask the better just be sure not to go far...
but then again you have the right to know whatever happens in your face...

hey jace cali....first of all best of luck for the improvement...:)...

secondly i read your thread but i am bit confused regarding this cora procedure...i mean how is this different than subcision....

do the doctor insert needle at an angle or horizontally...?
if horizontally does he move the needle back and forth and sideways..?

subison without nokor needle and with smaller needles is still subcison btw.

Hey Scarfaces,
I'm telling you this based on what I heard from the doctor. I asked him if this was subcision, and he told me no. It's called Cora Therapy. As for the needle, no he does not insert it horizontally and does not move it back and forth or sideways. From what I know, in order to undergo subcision, don't you need a partial anesthetic? For this treatment, he only uses a numbing cream. Anywho, I'll ask him more in details next week.

Hey guys,
Just got my 3rd session on Wednesday. I have to say that it is actually working. As I have mentioned about the dimple, I can't seem to form it anymore when I smile. The redness is starting to die down. Still have 3 more sessions to go so, I'll keep you guys updated.

Jace Cali,

Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us, I'm interested to see your results.

I found a website, translated into English about the Cora Therapy treatment.
The pictures on here seem to all be shot in very similar lighting, and the results look quite good.

impressive...it says that ''[font=Dotum, �]You can get almost no side effects do not interfere with daily life, the daily return is fast, safe and effective treatment.''[/font]

so i am sure there has to be a way to do this to yourself...

Hmmm... Why would you want to do it urself and take the risk of further damaging ur scars? Even though the procedure may seem simple, I wouldn't want to do anything by myself. I would rather much pay and have a specialist do it.

there arent many persons that offer cora therapy treatment... thats why...the procedure is like needling the scar from 2 directions as
shown in the picture... the results are much better than any laser thing out there...its like all you need is the needles being used
and specialist technique:)

the results on the second part of pictures also remind me this persons achievement...

The link you provided is without a doubt amazing. However, I still wouldn't want to try doing it myself. Have you tried that on ur scar? Sounds pretty painful but I guess if u have the courage and the know how and u are willing to take the risk, then I guess it would be worth trying.
