So i've decided to wait on the tca until summer. Just going to wait until the school year is over. Lately my scar hasn't been bothering me which feels nice. Sometimes I even feel like my old confident self again but it's always short lived. Maybe I'm moving in the right direction towards accepting this scar. In the meantime I have a few more months to make up my mind.
I have a similar but wider scar right on the middle of my nose near the tip. It's much more obvious and harder to hide. I spent over $5000 on treatments but no real results.
I would recommend filling it temporary with some kind of special fx makeup putty and see if that works to reduce the appearance.
I know when the light hits the scar, the shadows make it more obvious.
The nose is a tricky area and unfortunately for me, i have very oily skin so i have to blot my skin a lot.
Anyways products that worked the best for me are:
Concealapore (scoop it out and mix it on the back of ur hand to warm up the wax to make it more pliable). They have the best applicator, buy extras!
Ben Nye nose and scar wax: comes in 3 colors. Sealing with latex is very tricky so i dont't do it. It's fine without it. U might have to check and reapply throughout the day.
I have medium skin so i also used Mehron scar wax but prefer Ben Nye better.
Hope this helps you. Good luck.
Arggg… don't you just hate them suckers? I'm curious, what have you tried? Have you tried tca cross? I've heard of concealapore and it sounds pretty interesting, I'll check more into it. Thanks!
