If it's bothering you so much and no procedure seems to work try fillers.

#3493103 ~My~ Subcision/microneedling Journey W/ 2 Week Protocol + More

Posted by Robertitoo on 20 August 2015 - 10:41 PM

 

Is there a limit on how many scars they do at one session?

subcision can treat every scar on your face. this team he treated all of them including lower cheek which he missed last time

Ok thanks do you know about how many that would be? I just wonder because it seems like I may need to do like 20 on one of my cheeks. Does that sound like it couldn't be done at once? And how do you know if subcision would work on certain scars? I have obviously teathered ones by my mouth that pucker but others that I think might benefit too! Is there a way to know?

Yeah, it's easy for a physician. 

Subcision works on all pitted scars, boxcars, tethered rolling, mildly atrophic rolling/boxcar especially if you follow the suction method!

#3492469 What About Medical Roll Cit?

Subcision isn't some super-complex procedure, its actually a fairly simple one, any plastic surgeon who has ever done a scalpel excision (i.e. every legit PS) will be able to perform subcision after getting a grasp of the concept. So what you could do is find a PS closer to home and show up with printouts from PubMed describing the procedure, there are a bunch of them available.

More likely than not he'll be all "oh, yeah, that's easy" and quote you a price.

I wouldn't say it's 'fairly simple'. A fairly simple procedure in my book would be performing microneedling or chemical peels. Subcision is a bit more complex, because of the needed local and topical anesthesia as well as the knowing where to insert the needle and all that good stuff. I am aware though that it's something every dermatologist and most surgeons gets to experience during their residency and I'm sure it's extremely easy to learn with HANDS ON training. My Dr, Dr. Peter Rullan told me how it disappoints him how many surgeons and derms have ruled off subcision, he says it's a very important modality/step in acne scar revision and I think we can all agree.

Your right though: One could possibly successfully pull of doing their own ?targeted? subcision on individual scars as shown here:

Now wide sweep undermining with nokor needles is a bit more trickier: 

The latter would possibly only require a good 22-26 gauge needle no higher or it can break and you don't want that lol


Now ang, I really hope you find a sincere doctor that can help you out and give you your money's worth. I hope you find a doctor that wont charge you over one grand or waste your time by offering you something you really don't need. 

I paid $300 for subcision in California
Matt paid $250~ in Texas
Some doctors charge 500+.

I love Philip Young's work. He's in Washington, he's my go to in case something goes wrong: http://www.drphilipy...e-after-photos/

hey Robertitoo, your face is looking pretty good, i can only see like one scar on your most recent pic. I have a question, why did you go for the 1mm needle length this time instead of the 2mm+ you did last time? Do you think the shorter length is actually more effective for acne scars or are you going for a shorter length since your scars are alot more shallow now. Ive always wondered if I was doing more harm than good using the 2mm. 

I read that with a shorter needle you can needle more often. For example with a 1.0 you can needle every 2-5 weeks, where as with a 1.5+ you're supposed to only needle every 4-8 weeks.. That and my scars aren't really deep..Even Slight erythema will intensify the skin to heal itself

#3491669 Skin & Scars Improved, But How? (Photos Inside)

Posted by Robertitoo on 11 August 2015 - 01:21 PM

Thanks for the response have you tried dermal fillers??


I have tried no treatments so far apart from creams, oils etc.

My first treatment will be next month, that is Fraxel Laser, the only reason I am going for this one is because it's free in the UK. I may look into paying for some derma rolling too.

I feel that fillers and subcision etc are too "hardcore" at the moment, so I want to try everything I can before considering them. I am hoping to reduce them as much as possible, then hopefully one day just forgot about them!

Subcision is less hardcore then Fraxel Repair lol. Your scars are perfect for subcision. But I understand where you're coming from, if I would have been offered Fraxel Repair for free before my subcisions and knowledge, I wouldn't have hesitated and accepted the ofer

Completed Subcision round 2!!

This one was definitely way more aggressive (and I thought the first one was wicked crazy) & deemed more promising.. it looks like it will deliver much more improvement! 

I will upload pre and after subcision pictures/video tomorrow!

Stay tuned :D


#3490516 Has Anyone Tried Doing A Micro Needling Peel? Just Found This On This Site......

Posted by Robertitoo on 02 August 2015 - 11:29 PM

It might work on Boxcar scars it might not. It definitely wont work on rolling scars those definitely need to be lifted by subcision.

You can go ahead and try it though.
