i have read some horrible reviews on realself .com about silicone injects ...i just got done with my 4th peel and 25% tca 5 stage and my skin is looking ALOT better!


At home peels?  Where do you get them?  I'm very interested in giving this a go myself. Thx.

I find that fillers fail because people do not use it on the right scars, and most doctors are just terrible at filling scars because they do not use proper lighting or just rush through it.  


So true!! As we all know, lighting changes everything. Both times I had the filler I felt the PS didn't take lighting into account and I ended up being dissatisfied.

Don't go there girl...don't start obsessing over scars that you hadn't noticed before!  Been there, done that.

The filler didn't last long at all for me.  I had Juvederm followed by Restalyne a month later the first time, Perlane the second time.  Within 3 weeks, gone. 

As for the subcision, it may have made a small difference (maybe 10%) but I don't think it's worth the money I spent.

I'm now doing Profractional spot treatments.

Yes, pics would help.  I did subcision + filler twice.  Very exciting results at first (even rejoiced over it on acne.org) but over the course of a few of weeks my improvement vanished.  Very disappointing.  At $500-1000 per treatment I couldn't afford another failure so I've moved on the spot laser treatments.

Hey Meg, thanks for checking out this post.
I'm updating both RealSelf and this thread in the hopes that someone will benefit. At the very least, it's a good way for me to document my progress.
I think I'm going to take a break now; give the tx I've had so far some time.  Laser lockdown for summer weekends wouldn't be fair to the kids either.
