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

 

Zinc

 

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 ?

20 April 2014 - 05:55 PM

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.

3) do what I did:  take copies of how the subcision procedure is performed and give them to your dermatologist

hey mr.matt, where i can find such copies on the internet? and which copies did you use to convince your dermatologist?

This is an example of the type of article/study that I provided my doctor with when I asked him to consider doing subcision on my face:

I am sure that there are other articles out there, but this is the type of information that I shared with me and I am so glad that he agreed to perform subcision on my face.
