If I can insert my own theory here... I think it may be more about the actual act of a needle cutting into and breaking up scar tissue rather than saline doing anything useful. Although, the saline may help to prevent the scar tissue from reconnecting - and of course it would be sweet to plump/smooth your scar out, albeit temporarily. Cheers


In Topic: SELF Injecting Fillers for Rolling and Depressed Scars

Hi, I am going to try Perlane or Restylane myself pretty soon. I have not decided which one, yet. Probably Restylane, since it works best for more superficial indentations, and I have had a doc do it twice. He did a poor job the second time. About cost, Pete: You can get a syringe full for about 200 US from Canada, and docs charge anywhere from 400-1000, so it would be cost effective unless someone missed their scars badly. I suppose it would be a bit obvious to say don't try this at home.  shock.gif

should we use Hyaluronic acid/protein given by juile? it is supposely to be used after A-peel Correct, but I am pretty scare of using it after reading SB's comment on this product.

Hi, hyaluronic acid and proteins occur naturally in human skin, therefore they are perfectly safe to apply in a topical, or even orally. They will not do anything beneficial for your skin, though, except perhaps as ingredients in moisturizers.

Regarding the first post in that thread:
You can also type in  the phrase "copper peptide cancer" and get many hits at http://www.ncbi.nlm....earch&DB=pubmed
I will leave it to forum readers to sort out the truth, fiction, agendas, and irony in all of this.


In Topic: Cross with...Salycilic Acid

26 August 2005 - 12:19 PM

Hi, I don't know why you wouldn't just have TCA Cross done by a doctor using 100% TCA. It is a proven way to deal with acne scars. About the: "2% salycilic acid in the morning to break up the scar tissue"
That isn't going to work; it just isn't strong enough to break up scar tissue. SA is really only good for clearing pores and tightening up the skin, anyway. You seem to be one of the many people that longs for a topical that doesn't exist. I hope you don't take offense to that statement, because none is intended.  smile.gif

edit: Oh yeah, it helped my texture a little, because I stopped using other stuff. I don't know about tone. Does anyone have any tone pics? (tune in as oldguy frantically attempts to get back on topic)
