ice pick acne exertion

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My name is jay i have been dealing with acne and scars most of my life.

I have done a lot of research on scar removal and have found very little information on ice pick excertion, no pics. I had the exertion done this morning and am going to post pics of the before during the heal and after to give some options for others.

Thanks

i attached before and right after pics.

This procedure looks identical to scar "excision", as it looks like the Dr excised the scarred area and sutured up the wound. Perhaps you couldn't find anything on the procedure because you thought it was the procedure was called exertion instead of excision? Please disregard my ignorance if this is not the case.

When the sutures are off you should ask your doctor for some silicon patches. At least you should use some silicon creme to avoid hypertrophic scarring ;-)

I think you look great :) Looks like your skin is healing nicely too. You don't have very much redness and your scars look much better. I'm sure you'll continue to see improvement as your skin heals.

YEAH FOR YOU !!

thx for keeping us updated. Yeah, seems your healing very well. Seems it's still a bit swollen. Once the swelling is gone it will look even better.

Good Luck with your treatment! May I ask what setting you took your photos in? The photos are so clear. Wish I could take photos of my skin like that

also, how much did you pay for this procedure? (excision, I believe, although there might be multiple names for it)

i found if you go to a plastic surgeon that has an alternate practice insurance will cover some of the cost. IE (ears nose and Throat)

im still waiting to see exactly how much my insurance will cover but the total bill is about 2k

is it worth it? maybe ( i think it worked well on the larger scars but not on the smaller ones)
