Anyway, I am going to see Dr Chu - his normal waiting list is around 20 weeks but he's going to squeeze me in in around 3-4 weeks time. (Very persuasive I was!)
Lola - can I continue with peels whilst waiting for subcision/N-Lite - also, I am using retin-a. What do you think?

Glad to hear you spoke with Dr Chu. He's a nice guy and a good doctor and I wish you every success with him. Nothing is guaranteed to work because we are all different and our bodies react differently. However, I think you have the best chance in the UK with Dr Chu.
I don't think continuing with the glycolic peels will affect the subcision/n-lite. However, perhaps you should stop a couple of weeks before, just in case your skin is sensitive and reacts with the n-lite. Why don't you phone Dr Chu or email him to check?
I took bromelain and arnica pills two weeks before and two weeks after subcision. (Bought both at Boots). I didn't notice a significant difference although other people say that it helps minimize bruising/swelling. I think you should stop taking vitamin E and aspirin type medications as this can make bruising worse. (I tend to bruise really easily and some bruises from subcision have lasted 10 days). To be safe, you might want to take 5 days off work.
I'm afraid he isn't single. If he was, he would make a lovely boyfriend! He's in good shape and looks good too! He must be over 50 but looks like he's in his 30's.

I am wondering if he will perform subcision and N-lite when I get to see him... and take a piece of skin to get the Isolagen prepared...or if it's just a consultation before treatment.
Just to get there means I have to organise childcare for the day and also take the day off. Will I need to take the rest of the week off I wonder. Must phone them next week to see what will happen.
By the way, this is an NHS appointment - and I only sent him my docs GP referral letter along with a covering letter 2 weeks ago. I also emailed him a few times begging him to see me quickly and he did reply to my email saying that he would get his secretary to get it sorted out as quickly as possible.

I would also like to add that Isolagen (ILE) is a publicly traded company.
Recently the volume has picked up. If it gets approval in the U.S, I imagine that would have a huge impact on the stock...I mean, if the FDA approved Botox, then why wouldn't they approve this (your own cells).
I know someone mentioned a candidate from another board who might of had an injection, Anyone familiar with this? It appears that Lola will be the first on this board to have Isolagen done.

Heidi on the Voy board is scheduled to have them done around the same time. She hasn't posted for a while and if I see anything, I'll let you all know
