Punch Elevation For Ice Pick Scars?

10 May 2014 - 11:42 AM

Hello guys,

 

I was wondering if punch elevation can be successful in treating ice pick scars, because it is mentioned mostly in relation to boxcars.

 

From what I've read on punch elevation, the base of the scar is excised and then somehow elevated...if this is the case I don't see how it could work on ice picks, but I've read that some people improved their ice pick scars this way.

 

Also, I heard about punch excision and grafting as well...Which of these three procedures (punch elevation, excision, grafts) is best for ice pick scars?

Or does it depend on the size and number of ice picks?

 

If anyone has had this procedure done, please share your experience. :)


Excision/subcision In Europe?

13 October 2013 - 11:07 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I am a 20 year old girl from south-eastern Europe and I have severe acne scars.I have all types of scars (icepick, boxcar, rolling).

 

So far I've tried tca peels and mechanical dermabrasion, but I didn't get any improvement.From reading these boards I learned a little about acne scarring.

 

I would really want to try subcision and excision for my scars.However, I cannot find a single surgeon/derm who is willing to do these in my country.

 

Could anyone please recommend a doctor who is experienced in subcision and excision and is also from Europe?

 

thanks
