In Topic: Deep Scar / Ice Pick Scar Cure By Water Fast

Don't do this!

A water fast is NOT going to have any effect whatsoever on your scar.I am positive about this.

It could, however have a detrimental effect on your health.

If the scar really bothers you, have a consult with a dermatologist.


In Topic: Pimple Over Scar?

No, it wouldn't improve the scar.This has happened to me many times.

A pimple that appears over your scar is the same as a pimple appearing anywhere else on your skin.In fact, if you're unlucky and your pimple scars, your original scar could end up looking worse than before.

I guess if you have a rolling scar, or boxcar and then get a big enough pimple over it, during the time that the pimple is active, your scar would be "under the pimple" and therefore not visible.But when the pimple goes away the scar remains as it was, or worse, if the pimple led to more scarring.

Thanks for the explanation blahblah82!

That is what bothers me most about excision - you never know how its gonna turn out.

Theng, why are you saying this?

 

Have you tried excision?

I think only two things can truly improve ice pick scars : tca cross and some sort of excision.
I have ice-pick scars as well and if you think about it, they are usually way too deep for lasers/dermarolling/dermabrasion to work.

 

Bear in mind, neither tca cross nor excision is risk-free, but I believe it's the only way to improve ice-pick scarring.

If you have a lot of ice-pick scars, maybe you could just excise the worst ones?

Also, if you want to try excision you would have to find a skilled plastic surgeon, from what I've read.

 

You could post a picture if you want, it's easier to give advice that way :)
