>>>>>>>>I had the Mixto fractional CO2 laser for acne scaring about 1.5 years ago. My findings are in agreement with the above conclusions on lasers.
My sun damaged facial skin was much improved and some lines much reduced; acne scaring only slight improvement....yes, must do several to obtain the maximum benefit. No thank you!
The laser treatment was done at maximum output and my face was swollen for several days and blister red. Took about two weeks to resolve to normal.
If you got some improvement (I assume somewhere around 15-20%?) and didn't have any side effects, any particular reason you didn't want to do multiple sessions to get decent improvement?
This scarring would be so EASY to rectify...it would take between 1.5 to 2 years max to achieve smooth skin...
All he would need to do is:
A) Single needle his scars intensively every 4 days for 2 weeks and then stop for two weeks...repeat this every month until clear....he would also need to apply fresh lemon juice for vitamin c straight after the needling to induce collagen production (and possibly every day or every second day too)....he could try the microneedle from owndoc.com (to prick the skin, inducing a few tiny drops of blood)...also, he could use a a thicker pin, like a sewing needle size, not to prick the skin, but to tap it without puncturing the skin to induce the skin's natural injury healing response.... he could do this at least 3 or 4 times per week....
B) Use retin a twice a week...
D) Use beta glucan liquid at least 3 times per week (or daily if the product is pure beta glucan with no additives)
