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.
As most of you know, after all of my research & countless of posts that I have done in the passed few months, I made the decision to have Subcision performed on my scars next month. I am due on March 11. I am very excited to finally get a REAL procedure done on my scars. Thus far, I am very optimistic but prudent as well. Scars are very tricky and results always vary from person to person so one has to be careful not to solely rely on just one treatment modality. I will be following 2 separate protocols that calls for a Microneedling device (Derminator) & a Suction device. Both sold by Owndoc. The subcision procedure will cost $300. I am hoping to achieve 50% scar improvement/reduction whatever you want to call it by the end of this year.
I was initially going to take one week off but after reading a couple of threads such as this one I realized I might have to take 2 weeks off of work. LOL? **I will be following protocol 100% I currently work retail and will be starting school in Fall. I am not going to wear makeup since my job consist of manual labor
