I am 32 year old with acne problem for a long time. Acne had settled down and left me with rolling scars that I have been trying to fight for years. I did microdermabrasion, and two years ago started Fractional Laser CO2 but it did nothing to help with my rolling scars.
Thanks to this community that I begin to relook my options and special mention to Mr. Matt, Greg and many others that took the effort to share their experiences and give hope to many.
I just had my subcision done exactly 2 weeks ago - with suctioning done from the 3rd day till today. Procedure is much the same as what everyone had mentioned, however I didn't have much bruising. It swelled up on the very day, turned slightly purplish the next day and 3rd day onwards was just yellow patches and I was able to see my depressed scars pretty much the same as before. My doctor did mention that the bruising should only be slight. I told him that I often see comments that the more bruises you see the better it is. However he said that some bruises are bad because it is 'overdone' Well I hope so and shall wait and see, since it has just been two weeks and hopefully the work of the collagen does it job soon. Once in a while I did feel some aching/throbbing reaction.
During these two weeks, I have also been applying vit c serum once to twice a day, unfortunately it gave me some rashes - Doc says it is because it is drying out my skin. Now I am not sure if I should continue this. Additionally, I am also taking Meiji Amino Collagen Supplement.
Will be updating this post again on the outcome to share with all my experience in this long journey that I will continue to fight. And to everyone who is in this journey too, don't give up!
