I have a test patch booked for 2nd if September. I'm 50/50 if to go ahead a get this advice and some of the stuff I've read especially as I've been on Roaccutane in the past. In fact I'm really nervous about it!

i had 2 - co2 (100% ablative) spot treatments done and for the first few days the skin is pink (like you scraped your skin) and it oozes a yellow fluid then once that is done its just pink. you have to keep aquaphor on the skin for at least 5-7 days until its healed but i had mine done on a wednesday (5 PM) and went back to work on monday both times. 

Brilliant. Thanks for the reply :)

Good news, again!

 

I went for an appointment with the laser clinic at Salford Royal yesterday. The guy was great and took time to explain my options. 

 

He said that he is happy to do a test patch but did say that he wasn't sure if it would help massively as he said my scars were 'mild'. He didn't for one minute try and put me off the treatment he just explained that there are risks involved which I obviously already knew. I'm going to go ahead with the test patch and see what happens

 

I asked him about derma roller and he said it is good but obviously not available on the NHS
