Nah, he doesn't. Treatments I know he does perform: subcision, dermapen (with PRP), TCA cross. Might not be an exhaustive list, but I know he does those.


In Topic: Laser-Treatment in Sweden

Hello !
Is there anyone in this forum that is from sweden and has had laser-treatment for scars ?
I went to the doctor today to talk about Acne. And she said I could get laser-treatment for my scars for free. (I dont have very deep scars)
I thought it cost ALOT of money for those kinds of services?

Anyways, my Questions are:
Is there different laser-treatments available ?
How does it work ?
Does it hurt when its done ?



Regards
Fredrik

How can it be free?

Hey, thanks for posting this. I've read a lot of your posts over the past couple of years; it's encouraging to see another 'veteran' (as you put it!) getting the results they desired and deserved. Sadly I still have a long way to go in my journey but I dream of being able to post a thread like this in the future.

 

My question is -- how many needling/rolling/dermapen sessions would you say you've had in total?

In principle it's not a bad idea, but you need to be careful not to use a product that will break you out. Whatever you decide to put on your face, you need to ensure all of the ingredients are non-comedogenic: a list of the comedogenic ingredients you need to avoid is available on this website here. It can be quite difficult to manually work through the ingredients list of products to see whether something is safe to use. Often products will note on their label when they are non-comedogenic, so look out for that.

 

Personally, I use a non-comedogenic tinted SPF sunscreen called Elta MD Physical. As well as providing a nice tone to my skin, it has the added benefits of being a good SPF and has never broken me out. There is one review of this product on this site here. In short, it doubles up as both a fake tan and SPF protection.

Great results and determination. Truly inspirational stuff!

 

You are probably now at the stage where dermarolling and individual needling at home would suffice. See what your derm thinks, though.
