dermal fillers/subcision/punch graft

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have several chicken pox scars on my forehead, and have already tried more than one method to correct them. Several years ago I had a dermabrasion treatment, which didn't make any difference. Then last year I had a series of laser treatments. First a non-ablative treatment followed by a DeepFX ablative laser treatment a week later. Three months later I started a series of more non-ablative laser treatments (once a month for three months), and I'm still not getting the drastic results that I want.

I went another plastic surgeon to get a second opinion and he suggested a hyaluronic acid filler. I'm considering it but I'm wondering if anyone has had success with a dermal filler for pock marks.

The other treatments I wonder about are subcision and punch grafting. Has anyone ever tried these methods? What were the results? I had asked the surgeon about excision and he was hesitant with that option, warning me that the procedure could result in a worse scar. Has anyone ever had success with excision.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
