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

hiya everyone,

I,ve just been reading this thread and from my experience this stem cell treatment has been the best i,ve had up to date. It seems to have repaired the damage under my skin, as some of you may be aware my cells were damaged due to a doctor going to far with a deep peel. My skin looks healthier and plumped out. As for the scars and open pores i have had 70% improvement on my box and rolling scars. I still have open pores but dr khan is going to discuss fraxel laser with me at a later date. I hope this information is helpful to you

I think Khan treated only like 5 people and it seems like all 5 have been on this board.how bout that.

anyways, when did you start this treatment and when did you start noticing results?

Hello,

I am new to this site and I do not have much scarring. I have noticed this past breakout that I have some mild scarring but since it is pigmented I cannot really tell right now. Despite this, I have been reading up on scarring just in case this becomes a common thing and I get scarred every time I have a breakout.

From what I noticed in this thread, and I did stay up and read every word, people who are claiming to have had these wonderful results do not have before and after pictures so why are people so quick to believe these marvelous results. If you do not have verifiable pictures of before and after your procedures stop giving people on this site false hope. It is clear to me what is going on. The main individuals who are claiming to have these remarkable results have all but disappeared from this thread. No one noticed that? The only real pictures that were provided in the original posts do not even appear real. I am all for new and improved solutions to acne and scarring that may or may not result but it appears to me that people are giving us false hope.

I do not want to be negative but I was just sharing my thoughts on the issue. I'm new here so please take it easy on me.

There is a long thread about Dr. Khan and stem cell treatments on the first page. There are before and after photos and the poster discusses his experience with the treatment in detail. This is mostly a discussion thread, so I don't expect anyone to post their results here.

Just to let you know honeymaid, I support your position.

But there is a difference. I've seen what Khan's treatment accomplishes, and I don't know about everyone else, but by my standarts, those results are a joke.

That was not the original post though. The original post is from BDR and he posted before and after pictures from a clinic in Asia. Furthermore, yes this is a discussion thread but if the discussion is whether or not you get good results from a particular treatment why would it be out of the ordinary to expect verifiable before and after pictures?

Does it really make a difference what thread they post their photos in? Maybe they thought before and after photos would get lost in this thread because it's so long? Who knows? I think you're getting hung up on meaningless details. I mean, there are photos that have been posted and most of the patients who have received this treatment have come back to report that they've seen a dramatic improvement. One poster even said his scarring is gone now. I don't know if the results justify the cost, but there is proof of at least one patient's results on this forum. He is very happy and you can tell from the before and afters that there is a huge improvement.

Are you really the only one who understands what I am saying. All I am doing is questioning why people are believing this without verifiable before and after pictures. Is that wrong? In another thread, I saw someone who chronicled his journey with Dr. khan and he had some success but you cannot really tell something is a reliable procedure without an appropriate sample size. This is what's wrong with many people they are quick to believe anything under the sun and when that doesn't work out they will just wait for the next snake oil salesmen to come along to be disappointed again.

Whoa. Calm down. I am just trying to understand why people are quick to believe results without verifiable before and after pictures. There's no need to attack me. I just don't think it makes much sense to believe someone achieved significant results without before and after pictures. How long the post may be is inconsequential to what I am saying. Furthermore, how is asking for proof a "meaningless detail?"

I am not attacking you, I am just trying to understand why it's so important that people post before and after photos in a thread meant for information and discussion. I mean, there are already before and after photos posted in another thread, so what difference does it make? I never said asking for "proof" was meaningless, I said getting hung up on where people post their photos was.

In case you all have acne scars, i would suggest you to try this product. For me, it works like miracle. I use to have acne scar all over my face. I have tried more than 10 products and nothing works. I even sign up for treatment that cost me $10k and still no result. Then my aunty introduce this product called skincerity. Visit here: *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules. * I tried it for 2 days and I see immediate result already. All my scar shrink to tiny tiny and the color is very even already. Please try it and spread the words. I have used for just 1 week now and already promoting it already because its like a miracle product. Please try out.

Oh my. All of this nastiness for being skeptical. Geez. I'm sorry for asking for proof. I'm sorry for not believing that this may be a credible procedure because one or two people may have had positive results. I did not know that would be an issue.

@Scars4Life

I do not think you have a tortured soul not anymore than anyone with visible acne scars on their face. I hope this does not discourage you from continuing to post here. It does not seem very welcoming on this site if you disagree but I will continue to give it a try.

ya i do agree that why ppl claiming good result but not before and after picture..it gives me (perhap i think most of the ppl in this forum) like this is a scam and this Dr khan has some interest with some ppl in this forum..because ppl with acne scar are all waiting for a miracle so this emotion can be easily manupulated...and this is the largest forum in the world with millions of ppl coming into this forum and they really got a big market here...so i wish most of the ppl can join me...i do challenge those ppl claiming to have good fu*king result from this Dr so and so can provide a picture to prove it..otherwise it is just a scam...hey acne suffer pls join me..challenge them

Oh please, don't make me laugh. Troubled soul, lol. As far as shrinks go, maybe you should have seen one, alot of people in here who have at least some moderate scarring, could only wish to have the skin you had prior to your Stem Cell treatment, and if they did have it, I am sure they would have never invested as much as you did in trying to fix it. On another note, from what I hear, asside from injecting stem cells into your scars, Khan also does subcision and then injects fat on that space that he just made through subcision. Now come on, if someones skin did plump up, wouldn't you think injecting extra fat had something to do with it. As far as success goes, I know of a couple who had non, and then there is you and perhaps someone else who I am not aware of that did have, but so far nothing compared to what is seen on the first page. If your happy with your "100% results" then I think you should be fine and move on with your life, and leave all this treatment merrygoround behind. But of course knowing you, you are probably getting another treatment done aren't you. Well good luck with that.

you dont know how bad my scarring looked. im sorry if you dont consider me tough enough..it seems you attack nearly everyone on this forum for having scarring which apparantly isnt anything compared to yours. Well tough luck. I didnt even have fat injected..just the stem cells with growth factors and prp.but i had deep atrophy..i had TISSUE that was eaten up by the staphh bacteria you little shithead. So i could not NOT have deep atrophy.( its worse then cystic acne) Dr Khan is doing something no one else is doing and is constantly upgrading his treatments. Whether or not your happy with my before picture is actualy about as relelvent as your constant trivial blabbering. When people ask you what happened to your face at work..i think that makes what you say irrelevent. Yes i dont care about your suffering.

You know NOTHING of this treatment. It has worked wonders on me and the photos were there to see. Im one of the few people here who actualy allowed my photos to be shown to anyone who askes for them. Everyone from my family and friends are astounded by how much my skin improved. Every derm i saw before dr khan said the same thing..you have deep dermis scarring. oh btw I didnt see any photos from dr derry and yet you seem to have some kind of affilation with his protocol...dumbass.

i didnt even get subsicion. i choose to continue to go to dr khan as he is bringing be as close to scarless healing as i could have possibly come...i was on this forum way before you and before i even had ANY scarring. I have done more for this board then you ever will. I have no issues with you stating your doubts..but as you havent even posted your pics..ill just presume your scars are moderate..much like you presume based on 1 photo that my scars are non existant..your not clever..nor are you helpful..your just an angry sod. How about this tough guy..call his clinic and tell him why the treatment is bullshit.you might get some answers then..BRD isnt a buffoon..nor is dr khan. You certainly are...ask for more pics from other patients..WHICH I have seen..all aside from maybe 1 have had terrific results...and this is only in its infancy! hes upgrading constantly and understanding more. what are other dr;s doing..urrrrr fraxel repair..urrrr..lugols solution? LMAO

Im not making any money out of this..dr khan is one of the few drs that gets up his ass and listens to his patients.

good luck..go take your negativity elsehwere.

Do you really think your point comes across better if you insult someone? It's more likely the opposite is true, don't you think?

I understand that you don't like it when people second guess you but there is really no need for this kind of hostility. It's not constructive.

sorry. Some people like Scars4life in my view are the most useless of ''contributers'' in this forum. I never said this was the holy grail. i said this has worked for me and dr khan is constantly upgrading his treatments. I appreciate this. there are some people here who have even claimed im working for dr khan..i understand skeptism but what have i done wrong? i showed ppl photos..informed the clininc anyone can view my photos and people seem to think every single post regarding dr khans procedure is a hoax.

Il be frank here i dont like talk. I would love nothing more then someone to come on this board and inform everyone of another dr doing this as comphrensivly as khan is and THAT IS ACTUALY available. What i find more comedic is that scars4life mentions the first photos at the start of this thread from the clinic in china..and says they are legit and then bashes mine which are far more clear then those 1990's quiality photos..of which only 1 had any scarring ..the others were tiny pock marks..

who in reality is being helpful here anyway? i hear a lot of talk..a lot of emails..but i see no breakthrough..im still getting PM:s..i have gone as far as talkign to ppl on the phone about the treatment but enough is enough..ive paid my dues.

I don't know why some people are perhaps a tad abrasive. Maybe they're frustrated? I don't know. And as far as nobody here being helpful... I don't entirely agree on that. But maybe some people think that they just can't do anything? Who knows?

In any case, I appreciate your efforts and I wish you all the best. I'm glad the stem cell treatment suited you as well as it did.

Has anyone gone to Japan for PRP therapy at the Seishin Regenerative Medicine Center? There is a new treatment that is called the Premium PRP that contains white blood cells that is supposed to be much more effective.

If BRD is reading, can you please clarify if adding the white blood cells is 3x more effective as is claimed.

This isn't true though. Lets assume Dr.Khan does have a very good treatment; it still wont be accepted or adopted by other medical professionals until there is enough data to support it. This will only happen once he publishes and others doctors invest into the procedure and then they publish their results as well. For the time being, one can consider this procedure more experimental than anything.

Hello guys, I haven't been on this forum for a while, but I decided to come here to give some updates, as some of other posts here have been helpful for me.

I had my second fraxel + PRP treatment yesterday, and the results from my previous one are encouraging.

What I've done so far:

- 2 dermabrasions (years ago, didn't help)

- (at least) 20 restylane injections (they help of course, but only temporarily)

- excisions and scar revisions (long story, but I don't recommend)

- TCA combined with dermabrasion (helped a little, but took a long time to heal)

- one TotalFX laser treatment (same thing)

- fraxel restore (low settings) combined with PRP.

So far, I think I got best results from this prp thing. It took at least one month before I started to see any results. When it had been 3 months since this treatment, one of my ugliest scars started to look much better. In other scars, results are not that impressive. But results are really good if you compare it to the ridiculously minimal downtime (2-3 days).

Right now I look like the female version of freddy krueger but I know this will get better in day or two.

I know this prp thing is a little bit different than those stem cell treatments people are having here, but I decided to write in this thread, as prp has been discussed here too.

I know my journey with these treatments has only begun - I'm going to have as many treatments as needed, hell I'll have 15 treatments if I continue to see improvement. I'm quite eager to try all new treatments, so I'm also interested in Matrix RF.

I know my skin will never be perfect, but I hope to get a good improvement. PRP isn't a miracle and you need to have several treatments, but it is a good option to be considered. Besides, it can be (and should be) combined with other treatments, such as needling or lasers.

Right now I'm wondering should I go buy some collagen capsules to enhance collagen rebuilding - has anyone tried them?

missElegia- did you get a better result from PRP injection or DeepFX? I recently did PRP injection my first time and I do see some results... but other derm recommended me DeepFX... Also, how much percent did it improve you after doing PRP injection? how many times did you do? why 15times? isn't that too much? I am planning to do about 6times and then do stem cell treatment.
