No visual improvements from derma-fillers?

Recommended Posts

I'm undergoing Fraxel 2 and currently have done 3 so far. I have 2 relatively deep scar that Fraxel 2 probably won't do anything with. Those 2 scars don't really bother me as much as my rolling scars until as of late. My doc suggested he subscized them and then do dermafillers in conjunction with Fraxel 2.

So I went today to get the derma-fillers. He used half a syringe of Restalyne and subsized them both. On the one that is really deep, he caused a lot of trauma to the area because it was bleeding a lot. He injected Restalyne at 3 different levels to fill in the scar. But at the end, both scars look the same. When I feel it, it feels more filled in but they don't look any different other than the obvious redness and swelling.

My doc said he doesn't want to fill in Restalyne superficially. He wanted to do it deep since my scars are deep. He only charged me $200 for half of the syringe of Restalyne along with the subscision so I'm happy about that.

What do you guys think?
