Nose Scars

33 posts in this topic

Anyone with nose scars?

Hyperthrophic or raised ones?

Pitted or atrophic scars?

Any scars on the nose.

Please tell your story and the severity, what treatment are you getting, has it improved overtime, and SUCCESS stories.

Thank you! I feel nose scars are talked about less and there arent much options for nose scars since skin on the nose is VERY different.

I have an ice pick scar on my nose, and I have one tca cross done, the scab just falls today. it still a little bit red, so far it seems no change. I will wait and see how it heals in the following weeks.

Oh please update me pls pls pls.

Cause i heard tca cross is not good on the nose. They said the skin from the nose pushes itself away from the injury leavingmthe wound open and unfortunately deeper or wider.

I do hope it goes well with you.

On what location was your icepick scar? That is a very importat factor.

I've had TCA cross done once or twice on an icepick on the side of my nose. It responded the same way as all other scars on my face, so if Cross works for you in general, I don't see why it couldn't work on the nose (although yes, skin on the nose is more unpredictable and in the worst-case scenario scars turn out worse). My Cross treatments didn't help me much unfortunately (could've been the doctor/strength of TCA, or just how my skin is), so I didn't see a big difference in my nose scar. But it definitely didn't get any worse either. You could do a test spot on one scar on the nose first, and if it goes well, the rest.



Oh, I also have a hypertrophic nose scar, and I've tried silicone sheets and cortisone creams for it to no avail. I could've tried both of them longer, but I just didn't bother. They didn't seem to make a difference. You'd probably need something different like laser, cateurization, a shave excision or a steroid shot to fully get rid of them, but all those treatments seem too risky for me.

It has been a week since my tca cross, honestly, it just looks like before the tca cross, or a little bit shallower. But it take few months too see the full result. eusa_pray.gif

yes. The scar got a moderate improvement after a week of recovery. it looks like a big pore rather than a pit now.

What color is your skin? And from what origin? How much percentage of TCA did he used?

I am an asian but with rather light skin color. I think the scar comes from acne inflammation and I use 100% tca acid.

The scar is being smaller and smaller day by day LOL.

But I still have several scars that are needed to deal with, I would consider doing needling.

Ok seriously. You are soooo aswqdetsgdh LUCKY. From all the reviews ive read, the tip of the nose is something yu woudnt want to bother with.

Btw, im asian too.

Keep updating me man smile.png

Im very happy for you! hope you get rid of those scars!

I think the key is not to apply to much tca and just apply it gently just inside the scar then keep it moist for about a week. also you can check out cora therapy, I do it myself and see better improvement than ordinary self needling.

How do you do cora therapy by yourself? Do you do self subcision

I don't know whether it is exactly cora therapy. but what I do is insert the needle from the border of the pit and reach the center of it and do it in different directions.

Keep it moist and don't touch it. I like bepanthen cream for healing skin, but I'm sure there are other good alternatives.

All the scars I have are on my nose because I got rather large pustules there unfortunately. I'm left with four scars, one icepick and three boxcar/round holes. They don't seem too deep, but not shallow enough for a peel to get rid of them. They are all located on the bottom half of my nose. I was getting all optimistic hearing how all theses methods worked on people to get rid of scars but now I keep hearing that treating scars on the nose is really difficult. I'm extremely discouraged. :( Does anyone else have experience with treatments for the nose that have worked?

There are success stories. I read some. They used single needles but you have to be extremely careful and not aggresive.

Do you have raised bumps left after acne on your nose? I got large cysts on my nose then after it went away, it left me these bumps. Theyve been here for 9 months. It's giving my nose an uneven and bumpy texture. In addition to ice pick scars.

Do you mean needling? I guess I could look around to see which doctors offer that treatment for my boxcars.

I don't have any raised bumps on my nose, no. I think I might've gotten a small red raised bump right next to my nose from a really large inflamed pustule, but it's really small and doesn't bother me. I'm not sure if my pimples qualify as cystic acne, just really ugly pustules.

Are you thinking of doing something to get rid of your scars? I think raised scars are treated with steroid injections if I remember correctly.Are you trying needling?

yes i am trying needling. I just did my 2nd session.
Single needling to be exact. I will evaluate any results after 6 months.
I do my needling every 4-5 weeks, it's not aggresive. In fact, i just prick it 3- 6 times. If i see no improvement and no worsening of the scar i will increase the number of pricks.
