Stem Cells for Acne Scar Repair (SCIENCE FACT, not science fiction!)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I've finally received the pictures from TianTan. Sadly the results do not seem promising. Most of the scars they treated seemed to be rather shallow or perhaps its the low picture quality. The lighting seems rather different too.

Indeed. The lighting seems different. Except in the photos of person #3. Those are good results, too, btw. :) But the photos of person #4, for instance; the 'after' pic is from a different angle and is out of focus... Nevertheless, in the case of person #4, I'd say there was some improvement there but not one that is, like, huge or anything. And I don't see any scars on the first two people... I guess they've had injections to get rid of pigmentation?

Did they say how many injections these people have had?

No mention of how many injections they had. Just those attachments. For the 4th person, her problem seems to be more like burn scar than acne scarring.

The 2nd person seems to have some minor scarring which i really cant determine whether there had been any improvements lol. Overall, the pics seem disappointing to me TBH. Luckily maru has went for the treatment so we can get the first hand review from him rather than just relying on these photos.

Dude,

You are very trusting. Most people on this site think there issues ARE super urgent, so expect a lot of emails.

In any case, i wish you good luck in your last stages of treatment. It seems as if you have put a lof of effort in correcting the damage that was done to your face. I acttually looked back at your post, and you do have a picture of yourself posted on a thread a long time ago. I think this was before you had the scarring and were only dealing with acne. One this is all done, I hope your battle with acne and scarring will be over.

THis new metthodology is both exciting and nerve racking. If it works, it will revolutionize how we deal with scarring. If it doesn't, those of us with severe scars will be heart broken.

Good luck to you man.

You said the other day that your scars were completely gone but that now with good time your scarring isn't going to be there anymore?

I found this post highly interesting. I regularly perform Vaser which is a form of liposellection and I understand this technique can be used for harvesting MSC. However, there is an Irish company that is called MYcells which sells a simple system for harvesting stem cells from Blood samples which is far easier. The quantity of stem cells will always be the issue.

Bone marrow aspiration is a very simple technique that i used to regularly perform as a juniour doctor and I wander whether the aspirate would be a far better source for the stem cells using the Mycells system.

i think this brings a lot of hope and optimism to a lot of people here, and i understand with that comes a lot of questions, but i think we should respect icaretohelps wishes and not ask him/her anymore questions.

ghet, i'm saying people should be more patient. he just had a procedure done and needs time to heal. he has been bombarded with questions to the point that he is incapable of answering ANY questions because there are so many. not to mention, this forum is covered with redundant questions it makes it quite hard to actually find information.

BECAUSE this is a sharing community, people should be respectful, and allow him to give information on his own terms.

actually, i think it's kinda comical to come on to a message board, say that a procedure has completely removed your scars and not expect some type of reaction to include a host of many questions from an audience that you know is desperate and emotional as we acne scar sufferers are.

I'm not trying to step on anybody's toes or create a hoopla over this, just providing an observation.

icaretohelp - this is totally just a suggestion that you can take or leave at your discretion, but I just had an idea that might help limit all of the questions you get from people. Maybe you can post a brief summary of the treatment you had with the types of details that people ask you about over and over again on your blog on your profile page. You can even disable comments so just the info you summarize is available and then at the end of the blog you can refer all questions to this forum.

I am not totally sure if this is a useful suggestion or not, but at a minimum you could just point people there instead of having to repeat yourself time and time again. I know you can just point them to this thread as well, but we all know how likely it is for everyone to read through such a long post :)

Again, this is totally just a suggestion. I'm not planning to get this treatment myself anytime soon so I am certainly not asking you to do this for my own benefit. I just thought that it might be worth a try more for your benefit than anything else :)

my laptop is broken so typing somthign long isnt fun..i will say that my shadows or indentations are gone..what i will also say is that i dont believe ill have my final results untill say 3 months from now..i stlll have a bit of redness..which is fading and thus making the results look better..i think qalll of you shold stop looking to me as your only source and pestering me (no offence) ..im just 1 person..untill yiu guys go out there and do somthing ur not going to know if it works or not..heidi 55 has had hers done as recently as 10 days afgo and is very happy woth her results thus far..to the other questions

YES HE DOES USE CELUTION

IT DEF WORKS on boxscars but again..listen you need to try it yourseld before i can truly validate that..taking into account i brought cytori to the UK im a bit dissapointed in everyone here or most ppl....i work do things etc but still had time to make a difference and put the word out there..this hasnt been fun for me..now im getting bombareded with ppl asking the same questions when ivr answred them before..i dont know what % its improved by all i know is its so much better then it was..how about 85% to be safe...yeh id so so..i still might do PRP plus added growth factors but im just generaly for ppl trying to bring this alternative medicine to another source (dubai)..im much happier with my skin appearence..i can SAFLEY SAY THAT now

if you guys want to seek answers then 1 person isnt enough..if u really want to know..DO...look at how i havent asked anyone a single questionn aside from BRD...there is SO much info in this thread go read it find a dr..expect to be dissapointed..and try try again..OR EVEN BETTER call dr khan..here is the number 00442079350986

as i said i will tell u more about the dr in dubai when BRD is able to answer the questions she sent for me to send to him.

i took the leap..if you want to know it works..theres only 1 way to find out..and thats not me.

sorry if i sond harsh here but only 4-5 people in this entire thread from nearly a year ago now have actualy tried to do what BRD has reccomneded we do..

as i said..i will when BRD replies to the question in hand send u iformation of another dr in dubai..but only when its concrete.

be well all

Is it just me or does idonotcaretohelp sound a little arrogant and aloof?

This is a place where we share info and ask questions.

Like the other member said,of course there will be people asking you excitedly when you tell them your scarring is gone!!!!Taking into account you brought the machine into Uk makes you what???...too proud to show us the ropes?And you are disappointed that the other members didnt bring in a machine too ??Many members here are constantly being asked about their valuable experiences whether they had introduced the cytori mahine to their countries or not.We dont hear about BRD complaining about your pestering him or anyone for that matter.Do you think BRD is being "bombarded" with questions when you make up a good chunk of that?Do you hear BRD or anyone say that you should just "read the thread,take the leap,roll the dice......thats the only way you'll find out.Just dont ask me even though I had it done "

We know you are close to ending your battle with your scarring and suddenly you feel people should leave you alone.Could you be any less humble?I remember reading your desperate posts asking for help awhile ago.And now you think people should just go out on their own and not ask you questions.Your previous posts were not exactly very helpful.Perhaps you should take Lillya's advice.

Fortunately,most member here are more than happy to share and help.

I think Lillya suggestion is useful.Many members have posted detailed summary of their treatments.

Frankly,I did find icares posts a little confusing.Many of us here just want to help each other.We are all in the same boat.

If you go a few pages back, you can see that there is a center in Mount Sinai, NY. However, that center is not doing the exact same procedure as BRD described. But they do treat scars with stem cells.

Other than that there isn't a center that I know of in the USA.

Bennyb, jump to page 28. There, you can also read a bit more about what that center in NY (called Stemcellsforhope) said to me and what BRD though of that.

The costs are astronomical, btw. At the most $35.000.

I have an appointment with Dr Khan on Thursday :D

One thing I forgot to ask... does anyone know how much he'll charge for the consultation and then for the stem cell treatment itself? I'm at a point now that I'd spend all my savings on it but would just like to be warned beforehand.

Also, if he does agree that the treatment will be right for me, I'll try and take some before and after photos. It will be difficult because the look of my scars depend on the lighting and makeup etc but I'll try and take a lot, to get a good overall impression of them.

If/when this happens, shall I post them here or start a new thread?
