#3469743 Dermastamping At Home

Posted by Robertitoo on Yesterday, 04:59 PM

Have u used it personally? did it work for u?

I've done microneedling as well as tca peels sessions myself and I wont lie I did see textural changes and overall improvement. Granted I didn't completely remove my scars but I sure as hell improved the way they look. This is after at least 8+ session. I've also only done it for a year and full blown results are seen after 2+ years of microneedling. I now have a automated microneedling device that owndoc sells called the Derminator that targets scars more precisely and correctly. It's also more tolerable considering the speed at which the needles are inserted into the skin is sped up. (imagine pulling a hair quickly rather then slowly) I plan on using it after a session of subcision in march. 

 

That said, most results are seen after combination of numerous treatments! I've done 10+ tca peels, 10+ microneedling sessions and 3 vbeam perfectas. I'm a bit more comfortable with my skin but I have lots more room for improvement. 




#3469575 Subcision + Suction First Vs Subcision + $1500-2000 Ablative Fx

Posted by Robertitoo on 27 January 2015 - 07:58 AM

Haha, you got me excited as well, but I kept wondering how and when you can fit this plan in your schedule without looking like a zombie.  Even if you must be a little black/blue/red in public you should bear it with pride as you know it's a means to an end...
I can't wait to see your results, how you tolerate the treatment and hear any tips you have to give. Honestly, very few people on here post sensible information.
By the way, I was planning on buying the same device for my treatment and I wanted to combine the two studies as well, but didn't have a clear plan... I am sure your results will be fantastic :) can't wait!

I will be taking 10 days off of work and I don't start school until Fall. So this will work out perfectly! Granted i will probably be still bruised and red from but not as much afafter the 10 days.  You're a chick so you have more leverage, haha.


#3468761 Need Help! Single Needles / Needling For Nose Scar W/ Pics

Posted by Robertitoo on 20 January 2015 - 05:05 PM

Bro. I replied to your message. I personally would not mess with needles for nose scarring. I'd keep doing 30-40% every 2-4 weeks if I were you. You wont see progress for 2++++++ months possibly a year.

#3468726 Dangerously Depressed. Excisions, Anyone?

Posted by Robertitoo on 20 January 2015 - 11:56 AM

<p>What kind of scars are you dealing with first of all?&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>And don't let anyone suggest to you that there is no hope because that's false. There's always room for improvement. Most of those people that suggest otherwise have given up too early.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>The younger the better. I'm 19 considering laser and subcision.</p>

<p>Just because someone failed doesn't mean you have to</p>

You don't have severe scarring. Acnr scars are categorized under different systems, but their extreme cases are 10x worse.
You can wait for the swelling to subside and then do fillers. Why don't you do that or is your doctor far away?

 

He's only 25 minutes away. I'd be willing to do filler only if it is prooven to enhance the results

#3468021 Scars Are Ruining Me

Posted by Robertitoo on 14 January 2015 - 12:28 PM

Go for Vbeam Perfecta. It's AMAZING for red scars, erythema. I get 15-20% improvement per treatment. it even treats acne quite well.

 

Also, if you scars are show slight atrophy -

 

Here's a study that shows Vbeam treating new/fresh atrophic scars caused by ongoing acne - successfully. http://www.medicalla..._Acne_Scars.pdf

 

I'm sure she has red marks & hyper pigmentation rather then actual scars. 




#3467937 Still Looking For Answers After 3 Mixto Co2 Laser Procedures

Posted by Robertitoo on 13 January 2015 - 09:58 PM

what kind of scars do you have?

 

try subcision?

 

 'Forty-six patients followed the protocol completely, had 60–90% improvement in depth and size of scars

(significant improvement) with mean: 71.73%. 28.2% of them had ‘80% improvement or more’ (excellent
improvement). Twelve patients started suction late and ⁄ or had long interval suction-sessions, had 30–60%
improvement (moderate improvement) with mean: 43.75%.
 
. Subcision was also performed in
superficial dermis (SUPERFICIAL DERMAL UNDERMINING).
‘Superficial dermal undermining under the whole scar surfaces
including base, walls, borders or shoulders and 1 mm of the margins
was the key point of successful undermining for various types
of atrophic and depressed scars’ (Fig. 3b). Using this technique,
most of acne scars of a patient in any type, number, shape and size
could be treated in one session. Therefore, it was not necessary to
use various methods to treat different scar types on a patient.
Moreover, considerable change was achieved in overall appearance
of scars and skin after one treatment course.'
 
I'll be undergoing this treatment in March and will follow protocol 100%
 
The key is subcision in the superficial dermal layer of the skin.

Doesn't look like you're going to scar. Your skin seems pretty tough considering you don't have scars anywhere else. Keep us updated




#3467107 Scarless Healing

Posted by Robertitoo on 08 January 2015 - 12:27 AM

Hold up guys. I'm quite confused. 

 

So we have tons of lurkers and tons of people posting that I don't see post anywhere else but this thread. Is this some type of last resort thing? Last hope thing? It's almost as if you guys tried everything from ablative lasers, dermabrasion, subcision to combining these & doing multiple treatments and even the DIY treatments that gave success to Lamarr, DC-Girl & a few others? Is your scarring really that bad?  

 

The only reason I visit this thread from time to time is because it is bumped every single day and ALWAYS on top 

 

Not trying to bash just curious.

Definitely peels. As always, start with lighter peels such as Glycolic, Lactic and even Salycylic. Then move on to deeper peels such as TCA 15-30%.

 

I suggest you learn more that way you can do them at home and save $1000. Literally.




#3464773 Cooped Up In The House

Posted by Robertitoo on 21 December 2014 - 05:38 PM

Hey thanks for replying to me on my thread! Knowing people that have completely gotten rid of their acne scars or at least a huge improvement is what keeps me going physically and emotionally. Life is an adventure... BUT if it was certain that my face would be plagued with scars my whole life life and there was no possibility for improvement I certainly would have completely shut down every aspect of my life.  BUT that's not the case. Like I mentioned, seeing people that have improved their scarring keeps me going as well as reading successful case studies and things alike is very meaningful to me. Also seeing your skin improve, even if it's slow, by getting treatments done professionally or even DIY is also very satisfactory. And that shit drives me to strive for success. Witch is scar revision (90-100% scar correction). I've seen it happen! I don't need any troll to tell me that's not possible smile.png

Great improovenent definitely see a difference in texture!

Mind sharing where you're getting your procedure and cost?


#3463616 Advice Please

Posted by Robertitoo on 12 December 2014 - 06:26 AM

There's people out there that have gotten completely rid of their scarring or to a point where it's pretty much unnoticeable. So keep your hopes up. As far as fraxel goes, it really depends on the type of scarring you're dealing with. If you don't mind, I suggest you upload a pic of your scarring. That would give us an idea!
