Scar Tissue Underneath

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Two cysts/nodules on my left temple popped by themselves a while ago. Now I have 2 uneven "bumps" under my skin. On the surface it looks fine. No uneveness or anything. But you can feel it when you press down with your hands. There is no head, and it doesn't hurt when I push on it. What the hell is it?! Is it the cyst re-emerging or just scar tissue? My derm said it could be scar tissue and he wants to wait a little longer and let it "settle" before giving it some kind of injection!

I HAD what you are describing.

fraxel took the lumpyness away (you couldnt see it.. just feel it).

I have had 2 sessions so far (third next week) ... it wasnt until the second one i had that it went away.

Now when i touch my skin there a no bumps under the skin.

Something that did happen though after my first fraxel, during the first week they went rock hard more or less.. then back to normal... and then they went after the 2nd one.

What is Fraxel? My derm said he could inject it but he wants to wait for it to settle. I'm glad it worked for you! Hopefully these "bumps" don't become nodules or cysts again....
