Fraxel + Subcision = homemade Needling + Peels + Dermaroller?

A. Hi, just wondering what your thoughts are on this.

B. Has anyone achieved a smooth skin result with needling + peels and dermaroller alone?

C. Can you guys give me some tips on how to deal with people staring, engaging convos, etc.?

D. What is the best time to have a procedure or homemade method while working / still in school?

Thank you so much. :cry:

Against it.

Answer is..... no.

Only time can help you develop a defense mechanism against that.

I recommend waiting for something real to come out. If you have serious scars, home treatments won't do much.

haha i agree its nice to wait for something real to come out. if you're like me though and want some results NOW, i can actively say that peeling and needling does work to some degree. i did some tca peels and needling a few months back, whilst my skin is still so far from perfect, its a bit nicer than it was previously. ultimately like any treatment, it will take soooooooooooooooo many things to get it looking good, though at least you are working on it. plus needling and peels are a hell of a lot cheaper. if you do have some larger scars, subcision could work and would be faster. it seems pretty cheap too. as for fraxel, im completely against it, its an expensive waste and i dont think ive seen any posts here where people have said they have gotten more than a 5% improvement. i get that alone thru peels.

as for people looking, there doesnt seem to be any real secret. just be yourself, be confident and dont let it hold you back. whilst i do the first well, i definitely do let it hold me back. i spend day at home whenever i feel my skin isnt looking its best and im losing out on a lot because of it. i head out and i see people stare and whilst i dont like it, there isnt that much that can be done. again just be yourself and confident i guess.

as for treatments whilst at school i guess youd be looking into light peels, copper peptides and perhaps needling individual scars. ive been considering the same thing since im back at uni. at the same time, i realise its time to let it go !

But it can help people feel like they're doing something. Which can sometimes help a lot. And it all depends on how bad the problem is... It can help with some people.

I think needling does help a little but it is a very slow process. It depends on how severe your scarring is. I hate my scarring but I know that campared to a lot of people on here it isnt too bad, probably considered moderate.

I hate talking to people during the day, I'm very conscious of where the light is hitting my face. However during the evenings, socialising in bars etc, mine isnt very visible so I feel much more confident.

Wearing make up helps a little, I use cliniques pore minimiser which doesnt really do much for the scarring itself but makes the texture of your skin look a little better. You can wear this if your a guy.

I don't know how long I will have to wait for something real to come out. What if its another 10 years? I would rather carry on with needling meanwhile.

I do needling on Friday, by Monday my skin still looks rough but I don't mind it so much.

Dave, you don't believe there are any viable scar treatments out there right now?
