Looking for Dr that does Saline Injections in the NY Area

I am very interested in the saline injections for my scars but can't fly out to Cali for the amount of times the treatment calls for.

Does dee or anyone else know of a Doc that does them in the New York or Even NJ or Tri-State area???

I would love to try it and I would report back my progess for everyone to be able to see if it is worth it.

Thanks for all your help

Hi computergirl,

Saline Injections doesn't bring permanent improvement. It is only temporary results, so you need to keep injecting it every 6 months or so.. Otherwise it will be absorbed to your skin and your scars will appear again.

I am not sure it is worth it...Also, I tried the laser treatments(fractional laser, IPL) But it didn't do that much to my scars.

What kind of scars do you have? Are you talking about enlarged pores?

Yes, I know that saline is temporary but I am just off Accutane and have had some spontanous scaring that hopefully will now be put to a stop because another board member was kind enough to come to my rescue when all the NY Derm So called Specialist couldn't tell me what was happening and told me to take a 24 hour antihystimin(sp)

I just want to see if the saline will fill in the indented scars I got especially the one gauge on my nose that is really unsightly. I can't do anything like IPL, Dermabrasion, Retin A or peels right now and for at least 6 more months. PLUS i AM SCARED TO death about causing anymore damage. I mean I literally burned scars in my skin when I pit Retin A on for just 3 nights.

So saline I thought would be safe in the meantime, but maybe it wouldn't even work now because my system would not be good at producing collegen right now. Maybe Restylane would work better now but the docs mioght overfill it and I would have to walk around with overfill for 3 months until it came down. I am alreasy walking around with Radiense overfill in my uundereye area so this wopuld not be a welcomed outcome LOL

Sorry so long, but even if I don't do it now. I would definatly like to know if there is a Doc in the area so when I am ready in a few months I can go to them because here is no way I could fly back and forth to Cali to see Dr. Sire although I wish I could.

Thanks for all your help. I don't know what I would do without this board!!!!
