well here is a link to a thread i posted for possible treatments for my scars. http://www.acne.org/...e/#entry3325520
I have some deep looking scars and when I meet the surgeon I will be asking about subcision treatments as well. Also how much did it cost you?
I looked at that link you included. You wrote about your nose, I don't see any scars on your nose, I see normal pores on your nose that every human being has. Don't think about them or consume your time worrying about treating them, they are normal.
As for the scars on your cheeks, you could possibly have several options. First thing I notice is redness at the scars. Vbeam will help reduce this redness, and dramatically reduce the appearance of the scars when the color normalizes. You can also look into TCA peels, (not tca cross). I think a TCA peel performed by a doctor may help normalize the coloring and help improve the texture. You can also look into fractional erbium. You may also get away with fractional co2 if the doctor is super skilled, uses a safe setting, and you prep your skin well in advance with hydroquinone to reduce the severity of laser induced hyperpigmentation. Of course I'm not a doctor, I'm just giving my personal opinion. Ask a doctor about these possibilities.
Also, stay out of the sun if you can. It will help reduce the redness and pigment in the scars.
Try using alpha hydrox products at night or retinoids, they will both help exfoliate and help balance the coloring (although if you over use them you can turn more red and irritated looking).
