today. I'll try and post some pictures when the dressing is off but I'm hoping it helps! If it does, I will receive the full treatment on November 10th on the NHS :)

Have some of topics disappeared? They were helpful (with pics) and were posted 2 years ago with lots of replies but they've now disappeared?!

Scarring The Day After Alcohol

25 November 2014 - 07:57 AM

Is it just my scars that look 100 times worse the day after drinking alcohol?!


I'm not sure if it's because I'm looking closer.


Has anyone got any tips to avoid this?!

Has Anyone Ever Heard This Before? - Laser Resurfacing In The Uk

Hi everyone,


I recently had an appointment with a dermatologist in the UK (Salford Royal, near Manchester) and they agreed to me having some laser treatment if I wanted it


The dermatologist then went onto say that because my scars are mild, the CO2 treatment wouldn't make that much difference to me. 


I was always under the impression that it worked BETTER on mild scars??


He also said that CO2 works by 'shaving' the skin around the scar to make the scar look flatter? Again, I didn't think that was the case although I don't know too much about it

I have recently been to a dermatologist (laser department) and been told that because my scars are 'mild' that laser treatment wouldn't actually make much difference to my scars? I thought laser was better for mild scars
