Whats The Best Scar Healing Treatment ?

16 posts in this topic

i have some really nasty scarring, like alot of small pits and a few big ones on the cheeks area mainly and less in other areas.

im currency taking a medication which is like accutane (different manifacture) for 3 month already cuz im sick of my acne already suffered from like 14 and now im 20 y/o.

it did very good to the acne that wasnt in my face, but i really am disappointed bout the face cuz it made alot of white stuff thingies to come out and left scars.

right now i have few zits or pimples or whatever u wanna call it, in the face, BUT my real problem is scarring.

im just thinking ahead assuming i wont suffer acne in the face like in a year from now, and then i must do something about all those scars i have cuz i cant live on looking like this.

now i heard theres all sorts of laser treatments, but i the thing is i also heard of radio wave treatment which i think is suppost to be better than laser, but im not sure...

so long story short, i wanna know whats the best treatment for acne scarring (that doesnt invlove putting matrial or plastic surgery).. what is better, the laser or the radio wave thingy or something else?? please dont spare me any details.

im not from the us and english isnt my native language so u will have to exuse me for my english. thanks for the help.

Fractional co2 is better than rf machines but has a bit more downtime/risks.

best treatment for acne scars is subcision

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22672279

Acne scarring is a common dermatologic problem causing a great cosmetic disfigurement. Subcision is one of the effective modalities for treatment of rolling acne scars.

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of subcision for rolling acne scars in Iraqi patients.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Forty patients (21 males and 19 females) with moderate to severe grades of facial rolling acne scars were enrolled in this study. Subcision was done for all patients. Patients were followed up at 2, 6, 12 weeks, and 6 months after the last session. The response to treatment was evaluated by objective and subjective methods.

RESULTS:

Thirty-four patients completed the study and follow up period. Eight of them were complaining of severe and 26 of moderate grade of acne scars. At the end of the study, 18 (52.94%) patients had mild grade, 15 (44.11%) patients had moderate grade, and one (2.92%) patient had severe grade. This change was statistically highly significant (P-value = 0.0000001). The average scar score before treatment was 13.264 ± 1.675; and it improved to 9.47 ± 2.71 after 6 months (P-value = 0.0000001). Regarding the photographic assessment, the difference in the visual analogue scale before and after the treatment was statistically highly significant (P-value = 0.0000001). All patients were satisfied regarding the improvement after treatment with varying degrees. All reported side-effects were mild and transient.

CONCLUSION:

Subcision is a safe, easy to perform, well-tolerated, and valuable surgical technique for treatment of rolling acne scars.

subcision is good for every depressed scar...trust me i do it to myself...the derms just use big nokor needles that make subcision

useless for icepick scar and large pores...you solve this problem by using diabetic lancet of 33g diameter....

the horizontal movement of the subcision makes it ideal to target any fibrotic tissue that blocks off regeneration..

For rolling scars, yes. For other types of scars, no. You can try it on other types of scars, but dermal injuries (lasers/dermarolling/rf devices) are considered the best options for the other types of scarring - and out of all those co2 lasers are the "gold standard."

hey, i think most of my scars are ice pick scars ( i might add a photo later ). i just remember reading about how the radio thing is newer and better than the laser, so how come u say laser is still better?? are u really sure about this? and also i read than radio wave thing u get barely any down time and no risk at all, unlike in a deep laser u have small risk there.. could cause pigments and could even scar u, right?? thats what i read but im not 100% about it, tell me what u think cuz u seem knowledgable about this.

If they're actual ice pick scars neither will help amazingly, but there will be some improvement - just keep your expectations in check & you may need multiple treatments. Depending on how many scars you actually have - you can look into excision as well.

On a per treatment basis the fractional co2 (keep in mind there are many different types of lasers) has better results than rf needling devices (intracel). But yes, like I said the laser has more risks - you need to consult a doctor regarding the risk reward of each.

Haven't tried any except invicible scars. I found it worth trying. But what i would like to emphasize majorly upon, would be natural home care. It helps a lot in backing up the effectiveness of the scar treatment cream/ointment.

what the heck dude..you have almost no scarring..give it a bit of time...and then just try derma roller ..would

be efficient for your skin since your- visible to you-scars are very superficial...

just derma roller to produce gradually collagen and to resurface the skin...no need for more invasive treatments...

maybe for the second image you could try some self subcision since i see the fibroblasts at the edge block off the regeneration,,,

look here something similar(but yours is really superficial)

dont buy any cream..they just act at epidermal factor...maybe you should try retin A.

take first some good pictures and then we can tell you..and if you looked better to the thread i posted you could see the amazing results.

it doesnt matter actually if it is ice pick ,rolling,box scar or even big pore ...this technique works for anything depressed
