Have you heard of this Doctor?

Recommended Posts

I'm making an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon named Patrick Abergel. (hope it's ok to say his name!) Anyway, he's done a lot of research and work with acne scars. I know this because there have been several articles (Los Angeles Times paper) over the past few yrs detailing his scar repair work. He's in the So. Calif area. Has anyone had experience with him? His web site is: www.lasercosmetic.com, although his site doesn't discuss acne scars much.

My face looks like Dirty Harry used it as target practice! I've got several deep depressions left over from my cystic acne days. (lucky me!)

Back in the early 80's, I had collegen injections that didn't do a bit of good.

Then I had dermabrasion, but it only helped a little. My dermatologist, who doesn't do acne surgery, tells me that there's not a lot of demand for new research into acne scar removal, since drugs like accutane are preventing such scaring in the first place.

I'll keep everyone posted on how things work out.

This is a great web site, btw! 8)
