trust me I've thought about this many times.. just right now I'm way too busy with work and can't afford to take at least a week or 2 off. maybe down the road but frankly I think it will be approved here very soon..im thinking early or mid 2015..
guys… I'm seriously thinking about having my scars treated with the regular fat graft (w pure graft system). This seems like the best route for me and frankly waiting for the stem cell fat graft (w celution) feels like an eternity so i may just go with what is currently available on the market.. out of all the plastic surgeons Dr. Kamran Jafri appears to have the most knowledge and experience with fat grafts.. has good reviews too..
however before i go ahead with this idea i would like to know if anyones had experience with him? or has knowledge of any other plastic surgeon that performs fat grafting well in the NY or NJ area. if so please inform me
i totally feel you man…it's extremely DREADFUL to deal with scars day in and day out but that being said i do see the light at the end of tunnel..some people may think I'm crazy but here is how i see it happening..im absolutely confident that recell will be approved in U.S next year and that should allow most mild-moderate acne scar sufferers to have good results ... and then the following year with celution being approved it should allow most moderate-severe scar sufferers to have some good results as well..then when u combined the standards treatments with all the newer treatments it will only enhance the results...
if my assumptions stands true and surely if the treatments that i mentioned give the improvements I (and most doctors) expect, acne scars will be treatable to the point where it is tolerable and a whole lot easier to cope with....of course this may not occur the way i predict but we must remain hopeful and remember time is on our side.. looking forward 5-10 years from now newer and more effective treatments will flow out such as acell, hydrogel, 3d skin printing, newer stem cell treatments etc…..
hey i just had subcision and selphyl done Tuesday and now i am in the recovering phase..I'm still very swollen and bruised so hopefully in a week or 2 i will return back to normal and will update you guys again...
hey guys it has been a few months since my last treatment and I definetly see improvement in my scars..the redness have gone down substantially and the depth of them are def shallower. but since i had very severe scars to begin with Dr. Boss is planning to do another treatment of subcision combined with Selphyl on April 9th and one more injection of Laviv. That being said I am very grateful to have found such a great doctor in my area
yes 3 lavivs and 1 subcision. the depth of my scars have improved about 35-40% and the skin texture of my scars have improved also...so im quite happy thus far! i think with the laviv the scars will keep improving with time..
"your derm is using laviv to raise the depth of scars for the fraxel to be a one off treatment." thats exactly what my derm is doing he is trying to raise my scars with laviv/subcision and top it off with a light fraxel to fix the redness and discoloration of my scars
okay guys just got back from my 2nd laviv injection...to this day ive had 1 subcision and 2 lavivs and i can clearly see that the depth of my scars and skin tone have improved about 30 percent..the dr also spoke about how the laviv will keep improving the skin/scars for many months afterwards..my next treatment will be september 5th for another injection of laviv..lastly i will be getting the co2 fraxel towards the end of september and he wants to prepare my skin by applying retin a and bleaching cream everyday for 6 weeks until my laser procedure..what do you guys think about this? what is the best pretreatment for fraxel laser? thnx alot!
i'm going to take this risk! ive only bought one treatment of laser to give it a try if it works i will have it again if not i wont.. I dont think he will laser at the strongest settings so i assume risks will be low..look at subcision.. NOW i know it works i will have it done again!
ive actually heard of people that have gotten decent results from Isolagen and since it has very little sideeffects im willing to give it a go..i'm fed up with my scars and will take pretty much any risk..if the treatments dont work out i will just do recell next yr
