Yep, it's been discussed a few times.  Not sure if anyone is actively doing the protocol though.

Another reason to never prepay for packages.  

 

Bexleyrose, so sorry that happened to you.  If you are concerned about volume loss, fillers may be a quicker and much safer route, although you are probably more concerned by the damage from intracel at this point.

Some scars absolutely do reach subcutaneous fat.  The really bad, deep cysts can cause so much inflammation and destruction of the fat layer that the face appears to sink in, almost like the sunken cheeks on someone much older.  Ever noticed how people with really bad acne scarring look prematurely aged? When cystic acne occurs repeatedly over the same area, like the cheeks, it can cause significant fat atrophy.  

 

Sorry, sort of a tangent but your posts would be easier to read if you didn't abbreviate everything.

Don't be so hard on yourself.  If I remember correctly you are hispanic?  I remember the Asian gentleman on realself said he was literally like a vampire for months and still had some hyperpigmentation.  If you have ethnic skin you are bound to get hyperpigmentation no matter how strict you are about sun protection.  You can certainly limit the degree of hyperpigmentation and the duration by sticking to a good regimen of retin-a and hydroquinone applied to the dark areas to hasten the lightening.  Ethnic skin turns dark from any kind of trauma and in my experience it's almost guaranteed to happen.

 

It's great to hear how supportive your family has been.  It makes the process so much more bearable when you have people around you who sympathize.

This doctor is definitely not close to Sydney, but he seems good.  He has some good pictures, though some of them are misleading because they are taken only a couple of weeks out post procedure.  

 

Dr. Davin Lim:
