I Have Decided To Do An Experiment. Subcision/fillers/needling

20 May 2013 - 05:23 PM

Okay, so the last day of April, I had some subcision done to some of my scars to make room for fillers.  One boxcar, and a few ice picks, and one scar from where I got a bit aggressive digging out an ingrown hair that left a nice gash for me.  The doctor put in some fillers that didn't make the scars completely level, but did bring them up quite a bit, much closer to skin level than before.  So, I had done some reading in past forums, and one lady had said that her scars had continued to improve each time she had gotten fillers done.  Each time she went back to get the temporary fillers replaced, the doctor had less filling to do.  She attributed it to needling her scars with the fillers in about 4 months post fill.  So, that got me thinking.  Perhaps I could needle the filled scars, and slowly replace the fill with my own collagen.  Seeing as how the filled scars being nearly skin level but not quite didn't change anything for me, I figured it's worth a try, nothing to lose, no real risk.  I asked the doc, and they said that I should go around the filled scars with the needling, but only because it could dissipate the fillers more quickly.  So I single needled a couple of the filled ice picks the other night, and I think I'm gonna get a nice improvement out of it by the looks of it.  Perhaps this could be a way to speed up the process and help it along.  Just wanted to let you peeps know I was trying this, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Hi everyone.  I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone in this forum, and everyone involved in making it go.  This thing has been such a big help to me and I don't know that I would be handling things as well as I am (which is bad enough already) without it. Thank you to all the people in here who care so much as to take the time to help others, thank you to the people who have had success and have moved on from the constant struggle and still come back and post to give people hope, and thank you to the people who service it and make it so great.  I have no idea who any of you people are but I appreciate you all so much.  Thanks.
