According to the link, this can heal active burn wounds so that any resulting scarring is minimal. It doesn't repair scarring that is already there :(


In Topic: Has Anyone Had Dermabrasion?

longtermsufferer, I've had regular tca peels done and while I think they're good for texture/pigmentation issues, I don't believe it helps with indentations.

If you were referring to tca cross, this scar to me doesn't look like the type that would respond best to cross method, which is usually used to treat ice picks.

 

I think subcision with fillers should help a lot in your case.

I've had dermabrasion done in September.For me it unfortunately didn't work.It didn't improve my scarring at all.

 

There is a risk of additional scarring with dermabrasion, but I think that risk is small.It didn't happen to me, but my skin was pink for a couple of months.

 

I'm from europe so the cost was 1500 euros, which is around 2000$ .A lot of money, especially considering that it didn't work.

I definitely wouldn't recommend dermabrasion (or any kind of laser) for treating just one scar.It's not worth it.

 

Sorry if this was negative but I think there are better options out there for people with just one scar.You should maybe send this photo to a plastic surgeon to ask his opinion.Then if he wants you to have lasers/dermabrasion done, in your case, he's only in it for the money, IMO.

 

Good luck! smile.png

In Topic: Subcision Combined With Fraxel: Restore

22 November 2013 - 07:05 AM

I would say at least 35% improvement in the scars that were subcised before the Fraxel treatment. To me, that's significant improvement, and the best improvement I've had to date for my scarring.

 

Now the ice pick scarring looks more noticeable and deeper. Before, my rolling scars were bad enough that I didn't really care about the ice pick scarring. Now it's reversed.

 

I'm going to try TCA cross on my ice pick scarring. 

 

Kind of an exhausting journey, but I feel loads better compared to even three months ago. It was worth every penny, and I wish I had the $ to get this done every month until I felt even better about my skin.

 

That's awesome for just one treatment!

Are you still bruised?If not, how long did the bruising last?
