In Topic: Man in the Mirror: Pre and Post Subcision Photos

03 March 2015 - 06:58 AM

I waited about two weeks after my last subcision treatment before I attempted to dermaroll my face.  I was pretty swollen and bruised, so I gave myself a break.

I purchase my dermarollers from www.owndoc.com and I use the 2.0 cm roller. I am still rolling and did it last weekend, in fact.

My younger brother who sees me about every three to four months mentioned how smooth my face looked the last times I saw him.

The subcision treatments were, by far , the procedures that reduced the significance of my scarring.  Dermarolling and 25% at home TCA peels also helped to stimulate the production of collagen in my skin.  I buy mine from www.skinobsession.  Definitely do our homework first as this is a powerful peel and you must wear eye protection.  I have done four or five if them and your skin really peels!

Hope this helps.

So sorry for the delay in responding to your post;I didn't realize that there had been an update to my thread.




Zinc is vitally important for the overall health of your skin and promotes collagen development.  Here are a couple of links:






"Zinc – vital for skin, hair and nails
Zinc accelerates the renewal of the skin cells. Zinc creams are used for babies to soothe diaper rash and to heal cuts and wounds. Zinc has also proven effective in treating acne, a problem that affects especially adolescents, and zinc has been reported to have a positive effect on psoriasis and neurodermitis.

Zinc is also used as an anti-inflammatory agent and can help sooth the skin tissue, particularly in cases of poison ivy, sunburn, blisters and certain gum diseases."


Vitamin D




" Having sufficient vitamin D in the skin helps minimize acne, boost elasticity, stimulate collagen production, enhance radiance, and lessen lines and the appearance of dark spots, he says. It’s this laundry list, plus anecdotal evidence from seeing patients day in and day out at his NYC office, that led him to create skincare with D right in the bottle. “Many of my patients have vitamin D deficiencies as a result of avoiding the sun and wearing a daily sunscreen in fear of premature aging and cancer,” he says. “Together, we noticed that their skin had a sallow and dull appearance, which I believed to be an adverse effect from low levels of vitamin D.”

In Topic: Subscision Treatment

This is just subscision treatment. Should the results get better over time?

Can anyone advise why under skin feels hard where the scars are?

Yes, you should see improvement over the course of the next several weeks/months.


If you have 'bumps' under your skin, this should be a good sign - the NOKOR needle created trauma and a dermal pocket is formed in the area where blood, fibroblasts, and other healing agents will go to work creating collagen.


Hang in there - this is a good sign.



In Topic: Does Subcision Surgery Result A New Scar ?

I've undergone four subcision treatments and no additional scarring occurred as a result of the procedure.


My initial fear was that the Nokor needle would create a scar when the doctor inserted it through my epidermis but nothing like that occurred whatsoever.


If you have rolling scars, the financial means to have them treated, and a doctor willing to perform the procedure, I highly recommend it.
