In Topic: What Is The Best Scar Solution For My Scar?

20 August 2015 - 06:51 AM

My scar is definitely still healing! It seems like it's stretched and a little indented.I did some needling with a needle stamp. Hoping it will start to look better soon :( Looking at the pics it looked better before right when the stitches came out. I had been taping it at night,but it did not prevent the streatched look

 My cheek excision looks indented too...partially because I feel like one side is a bit puckered (very slightly).  I got filler two weeks ago and it has helped quite a bit (though it's still not perfect).  Maybe that will help?

The thing about an excision is that you're basically replacing a larger, more noticeable scar with a smaller linear scar. For optimal results it's best to blend the remaining scar in some 2-3 months after with something like dermasanding.


Yes, I'm prepared for that if needed. However, right now my main concern is the raised areas I see beyond the scar itself. I'm wondering if it could still be swelling at 2 weeks post and if it will come down at all.
how are the results know?

Things got better but I still wasn't happy with the result. Neither was the PS tbh.  The cheek is a risky place for punch because it's a convex area. I took a chance but it didn't work out. I had some Belotero injected a week or so ago and it looks a lot better now.  Not perfect but I think that's because the punch is still healing. The older, shallow scars on my other cheek look amazing with the filler so I'm Glad I didn't get them all excised. Now, it's almost like they were never there.  I'm sure 99/100 people wouldn't see them now.

Hey Snowflake, me again. 

I'm sorry you're having a bad day.

I've had spot treatments with 2940 (Sciton Profractional).  Zero results. 

What about a filler?  Nothing permanent unfortunately (don't do silicone), but it might help.

Hey Snowflake, I've had a SmartXide spot treatment for two areas on my cheeks.  It cost me $150 CAD.  I think it helped a scar that was just over a year old but did nothing for some of my older scars.  I did not experience any adverse effects.  I'm Caucasian, btw.
