In Topic: What Else Should I Use To Clear My Skin?

Start washing your face with water only and apply dans bp gel once or twice a day. Stop using the cleanser and let your skin barrier repair for a little while.

Hey Matt, Just wanted to check up and see how things are going with you. I wanted to thank you again for providing me with so much information. If it wasnt for this thread I would have never found the doctor youve been seeing. I believe youve got alot of good coming to you for how youve helped so many people and even had the courage to approach a doctor with the case study on subcision and agree to embark on this quest. Thanks man, seriously. I mean that. On a further note I thought ide ask you about the tca cross that youve had. We all dont hear much about that. Ive heard mostly about the subcision. What was the downtime, aftercare, and results after the TCA cross?, Thanks           -Adam

A plastic surgeon today told me he thought this was scarring, and that fillers would not help because its bound down. Not sure I believe him, he went straight for the laser sell. I still called my derm about the saline injections, hopefully she will call back. And I have plenty of scars all over my cheeks, as well as a huge sebaceous cyst my old derm misdiagnosed as acne and then called it a keloid scar, which I can have removed in a few months apparently. I've been through a hellish year and this just tops it off with the cherry.

 

 

 

 

I would jump on the saline injection bandwagon as quick as possible. Im really sorry you are going through this but please heed my advice, toughen up now and get to the bottom of this. No matter what except nothing except your skin reverting back to a position where you are comfortable. Theyre are ways to battle this.  Ive been in your position and I wish I hadnt sulked about it and done something to fix it sooner. I would not go the excision route yet. I would explore saline injections or collagen injections first. Just me. Always go least invasive to most invasive.


Did you have atrophy or did you experience something else? I just had another freakout looking in the mirror. He disfigured me, and I'm afraid this isn't going to stop.

You are not disfigured. A simple restylane injection would work woners. Just sop bieng so negative if you can and put all that energy into a solution. Because anything other that fixing it is a waste of time. Ive had cortisone injection atrophy before. But ive also had scarring.

Well it seems were in a relatively similiar situation. I just had subcision for bound down scars a couple weeks ago. I have had some improvement and im happy about that. Youll be ok. its hard going through this stuff but it feels much better when you make "educated" decisions on treatments.
