Without much context we can't help you. 

Be more specific.


#3478915 Can You Recommend A Doctor?

Posted by Robertitoo on 24 April 2015 - 08:47 PM

Day 30 today - Yeah, right now i'm looking at a whopping 75%-100% improvement (both rolling & boxcar scars) from subcision + microneedling + suction, some scars popped back up but they don't look nowhere near as bad as they did before. lots of scars never came back especially on my right cheek and temples. It's important to note that further improvement is still probable, therefore I plan on uploading more pictures in 2-4 weeks, prior to microneedling, to share and assess results with you guys

It feels good.


#3477996 ~My~ Subcision/microneedling Journey W/ 2 Week Protocol + More

Posted by Robertitoo on 15 April 2015 - 11:43 AM

3 weeks after Subcision Update - 90-95% of scars still appear to be gone.  My temple scarring as well most if not all of my cheek scarring is basically non existent except for a few that were in odd places to be able to perform suction correctly, but the improvement is phenomenal at this point. Lots of places on my face feel somewhat hard to the touch, NON nodule like and they are not visible at all. I am assuming that is scar tissue taking place. Sorta seems like a layer of scar tissue or new tissue was laid down over the pits  I'll give it one or two more weeks to report final results, no not really, 'According to patients and investigators, subcision plus suction showed 81% and 65% improvement after 3 month, respectively' & 'Assessment and grouping. Two investigators and the patients rated improvement of scars using percentage after completion of treatment in two stages: 2 and 6 months' 

 

:pray:  :hifive:  O_O  ;D  :teehee:  :surprised:

16 Days Post Subcision/2.0mm Microneedling - 14 Days Post Dedicated Suctioning followed by a 15% TCA Peel: http://imgur.com/a/Gnf9L/all

 

The TCA I used: here

 

How often did I suction? I basically broke the day into 3 parts or 3 periods.. I performed 2-4 @ passes @ 9-10AM so morning, 2-4 @ 3-4PM evening & 4-6 @ 8-10PM night, I did this for 14 straight days!! Each sessions lasted somewhere between 20-45 minutes.

 

I am aware my face is still swollen from the actual procedure as well as the constant suctioning, so I wont post 'final result' pictures for another 2-4 weeks, possibly until my next microneedling sessions.

 

:strongsad:  :pray:  :pray: **KEEPING FINGERS CROSSED FOR BEST RESULTS**  :pray:  :pray:  :strongsad:


I also broke out a whole bunch around my jawline during the passed 2 weeks. Fortunately they have been healing just fine and marks are not being left left. Jawline post inflammatory hyper pigmentation tends to go away fairly quickly for me.

I will start microneedling 28 days from now, but I will however continue to do chemical peels every couple of weeks in the meantime till I get to microneedling. I will also get one last Vbeam Perfecta done 15-30 days after microneedling in junction with the alternating process.

 

Next subcision will be done towards the end of the year, around December break most likely..unless I can fit in another 2 1/2 week break from school/work during the fall semester but I honestly doubt it..( I start school this Fall) 

 

If you have any questions feel free to ask.  ;D

2 Weeks After Subcision, 2 days before last Suction sessions - Quick Update - 95% of scars still appear to be gone, I think suctioning is prolonging the swelling but that's essentially what i want. I will post pictures on Friday before my TCA peel.

Not really. Mines go well so far, 1 week in




#3476744 Come With Me On My Subcision Expedition

Posted by Robertitoo on 02 April 2015 - 12:09 PM

Hey MissBiscuit, I forgot to tell you, my derm told me that one month was enough downtime, and he scheduled a second subcision for me next week. This time I'll ask him to focus on my most bothering scars, that way ill be more happy if there's any improvement

Have him mark the scars. Bring your own Surgical pen if you have to. It's important to be assertive as it's your face and money. 




#3476525 ~My~ Subcision/microneedling Journey W/ 2 Week Protocol + More

Posted by Robertitoo on 31 March 2015 - 11:42 AM

Yeah. No probs. I plan on alternating TCA 15% peels and needling every 2 weeks. As well as throwing in some @ home microdermabrasion treatments and 15% salicylic acid peels here and there.

Arrival/Prep: Walked in, signed in and sat down & waited to be call up. You know, the usual. After a few moments I was called in and had my picture taken and had her send them to my my email. I then was instructed to have a seat. The nurse then lathered topical anesthesia all over my face and had me wait for the doctor to come in. I got kind of worried and anxious b/c I did not want the scars to plump up therefore not being able to mark all the scars with a pen. None the less it turned out as expected. The Dr. walked in and then the journey officially began.

#3475890 Subcision + Suction First Vs Subcision + $1500-2000 Ablative Fx

Posted by Robertitoo on 25 March 2015 - 01:09 PM

It's at 4pm pacific. Gathering all my things before I head on out :_)

 

I called them just now and asked them if it was possible for them to take a picture of my scarring prior and send it to me. They said "sure, as long as you come in 30 minutes prior we can do that". Good thing I did b/c the pictures I took last night didn't quite capture the scarring like I expected it to.

 

Everything else is ready and I might even have my my mom take video of of the procedure if they allow it as well as the the microneedling procedure I will be doing once I get home! 

 

I will be creating a new thread once I have everything at my disposal!!

 

The key is to have every single scar undermined aggressively and I will be very assertive about it. I'm taking a surgical pen just in case.

Backed by dozens of studies and relatively low cost, it's of one those treatments that really earns 'Never hurts to try' I'm getting full face subcision this wednesday

 

 

Why did you decide against it?

 

Wow, I hope it makes a difference for you.

 

I decided against it just because I was happy with the results of the lasers. I mean I didn't really need any more improvement nor did I think subsicion would change anything in my case that was worth the money and time. I had reached a point where I was able to let it go mentally so... I just decided to move on.

That's great man! Glad you're still with us anyways :)

Ever thought of single needling around a relatively new scar? 

 

No but I've thought of subcision and subsequently decided against it.

Posted by Robertitoo on 15 March 2015 - 10:15 PM

Jesus christ. This is amazing..I knew it worked...I am most utterly impressed on your scar's improvement from this procedure. I knew it works. 3 weeks is definitely enough time to see permanent results from Subcision. The best part is that your skin will still keep on healing for another 3-6 months! I wouldn't worry too much about the raided bump just yet..at least for another month or so. I agree, keep massaging IT gently note the emphasis on IT, you don't want to have your scars re-attach and cause depression BAM PUN INTENDED! Very excited and happy for you! :__)

Too soon to tell. Just make sure you do everything possible to prevent future breakouts
