I think I remember you saying that your scars continued to "fill in" for a time period after the subcision treatments when the swelling went down. How would you estimate that period of improvement lasted?

    By the way I'm taking vitamin C and collagen supplements to aid in that process, anything else you'd recommend?

Another subcision question. Did you get raised swollen areas the same day of treatment?

    My face was bandaged right after the procedure, so I couldn't see what my faced looked like.

    However, the next day I did have raised swollen areas that became more and more bruised as time went on.

Hey, were you placed under anesthesia or valium when you got subcision done? If not, how tolerable is the pain?

    No, I was not put under any type of anesthesia. The shots with the topical pain killer were painfiul but I felt nothing after my skin had been anestheized.

Did subcision effect your skin tone at all? Did it cause long-term redness?

    Subcision has had not effect upon my skin tone whatsoever and I had no long-term redness associated with it at all.

    The patches of brown areas are where the TCA has soaked into your skin. Your skin should get tighter and tighter and crinkle meaning that your skin is getting ready to peel.

    Hello.

    I apply the Retin-A at night and the Revia DMAE/EsterC/ALA cream in the morning.

    By doing so, I have antioxidants working continually 24 hours a day on my skin.

    Hope this helps.

I ended up dermarolling in my first session, and then my subcision was scheduled 6 weeks later. Guess this whole scar removal is gonna take time & A LOT of patience. I’m crossing my fingers hoping I’m gonna see some results. I also started using Retin-A & Vitamin C. Thx for the info!

Thanks for your comment on my page. To be the most effective, you may need three or more subcision treatments. I would encourage you to look at doing dermarolling four weeks between subcision treatments or laser. Topical Vitamin C and Retin-A are also very important to the collagen development in your skin. I would encourage you to take pre- and post photos. They really help you to see the pr

Thanks for sharing your experience & posting your pictures! It really helps. I have an appointment next week for my first round of subcision for my scars and I was feeling pretty scared not knowing what to expect but after looking at your before & after pics I see a lot of improvement which is assuring me I'm making the right choice for scar treatment! Thanks!
