#3347172 Concealer Post Subscision

Posted by FruitBiscuits on 09 May 2013 - 09:30 AM

Hey Nicky, 

 

Blue/Green - red and pink(salmon) color concealer

Purple - yellow color concealer

Red - green color concealer...But I normally cover up my red spots with a beige color with no problem.

Brown - white, lighter color concealer

Yellow - light or lavender color concealer

 

First, apply the corrective concealer, then you apply a thick layer of natural color concealer on top. 

 

I had a series of subcision treatments. Every time, I got a subcision, it's impossible to cover up bruises for 5 - 7 days (especially the darker blue, purple,and greenish one). Be careful, bruises are very visible under the sun light(One time, I thought I completely covered my bruises using my bathroom light. But when I checked my face under the sunlight, my face looked like I got into a fight lol...). But don't worry, usually after 10 days, it's pretty easy to cover them up(at least for me)!

 

I also recommend Arnica tablets. You should start taking them a few days prior to your sub treatment. It helps healing bruises faster.

 

Good luck Nicky!

Happy new year *Inspired* :)
I am glad to know your redness is gone. I hope your hyper-pigmentation will go away soon, too. Your skin needs to heal, so be gentle and be careful treating your skin(no hash chemical products...!). It is frustrating to go though such an intense treatment and your scars didn't completely vanish...but at least you are seeing improvements. I am sure you'll get more better results in time!

Stay positive and good luck girl Posted Image

Yeah it's called subcision. But the pictures you posted, I feel like those are totally photoshopped. The 'scar marks' and 'hard scar edges' won't go away with subcision(your skin textures won't improve much like those photos if you are getting only sub treatment and skin surface won't be smooth like that).

Also I agree with acnescars123. Every 2 weeks seems too much. You should let your skin heal first before you'll get another treatment...! If you poke your skin too much like that before heals, you might get scars from needles...careful!

Good luck OP!

I don't think TCA Peel would help your scars. They look like mix of rolling/box scars to me. I say go for Subcision. Pick a highly skilled doctor for this treatment, because not every doctor can perform subcision well. And maybe change your doctor...look around and get other opinions. Good luck OP!

It's nice to see you're still hopeful. Just come back from my consultation. To cut a long story short, I've been told to just live with them. Apparently, my scars are who I am. No, it wasn't meant to be this way. I give up, after battling this issue for more than 4 years. I'm just exhausted. Sorry to off load. But, it's cool you're still going. Hopefully, you'll be one of the lucky ones. Cheers.


sorry you feel that way...but there are different acne scar treatments available, such as subcision. but i really understand how you feel...i am really sick of dealing with and stressing out over acne scars, too...Posted Image I do have shallow scars and doctors keep telling me those are hard to treat. So frustrating...!
