In Topic: Can Someone Help Me Identify What Type Of Scarring This Is (Pictures)?

For the first 3 images your scars are clearly rolling scars. I suggest subcision professionally or DIY micro needling and exfoliating them from time to time with a weak peel. And yes different lighting can play tricks on you, i don't know what to say regarding that. Otherwise you have great looking skin surprised.gif

Great stuff. Can you explain how you prick and how deep?

I am assuming you have severe deep scarring? Because there really is no need for all those treatments. Never the less 5 treatments in one go because this causes all sorts of collagen interfering with one another. Correct me if I am wrong. I personally woukld have gone the traditional route of Subcision + Repair then Subcision + Filler touch up and maybe a few rounds of IPL or Vbeam after that, of course with a very skilled surgeon or doctor. Seems like your doctor is sucking your wallet dry.  But if you're content with results and money is no big then carry on and good luck!  

 

Where do you get your treatments? Clinic? Doctor? 

 

I wouldn't say "severe" - I'd say like a 7/10 originally, probably like a 4/10 now. Based on the way he explained it to me - the treatments all happen at different levels and "stacking" (as he calls it) on each other ie lasers only go to X depth and then fractora goes to a different depth and subcision/fillers go even deeper so they all help each other rather than hurt. Also sculptra isn't really a traditional filler (and I know someone people don't like it.) All the scientific literature I've read says combining treatments helps, I've never read anything about it hurting results.

 

I don't really see why you say "all these treatments aren't needed" as its very well known just 1-2 random treatments of co2 laser won't give you results you want.

 

My doctor is considered one of the top PS's in North America and I'm paying ~$1200 for all these treatments per treatment, so I'm paying less than just a normal co2 laser treatment. I've done a lot of research on treatments + doctors prior. Reason is he sits on the board for a lot of these cosmetic companies and gets equipment/consumables for free.
 

Yea by all means keep going man I'm glad you're content! $1200 for all those treatments sounds like a good deal, laser alone would cost $1500. Keep us updated and you forgot to mention who your doctor is :P that would help out the community. Unless you want to keep that discreet

You should keep us updated. I'd love to see your progress, it'll keep me hopeful.

 

Yea, a couple of my rolling scars seemed to swell up a tiny bit and be keloid like, but I just did a peel and my skins still sensitive and swollen. I think I'm overanalyzing them at this point. I'll see a derm eventually. I know I can get a free consultation but beyond that I have no funds.

I will do my best. Is there a reason why you don't have funds?
