Punch Float Progress (Dr. Y)

Recommended Posts

Well does he do spot treatment?

Has he had anyone result with more scarring or negative results?

What does he think about dermabration being invasive or the last option for scarring? -> would really like this one answered

Thanks animergirle when are you going in?

Hi guys,

I am preparing to head off to New Orleans! Anyone have any pressing questions they would like me to ask Dr. Y? bb_eusa_think.gif

So awesome and thoughtful of you animegirl! What's the lightest or lowest setting dermabrasion can go? And are there better modes i.e. maybe chemical peeling for shallow small scars? Basically, would he consider some scarring too mild for dermabrasion? Um, one more (can a very small hypertrophic scar be blended in with dermabrasion?

Thanx!

This isn't a question, but just a request for him to retire in 10 years time instead of 2!

animegirle, so nice of you. thanks. i've been reading your online journal this past weeks nice one, anyway..

I hope you could consider this simple question to Dr Y before the thread runs to 10 pages or more:

Is it bad if I used hydroquinone prior to considering dermabrasion, and do I have to stop using both retin-a and hydroquinone? Thanks god bless

LOL! You guys are on the ball. I've got everyone's questions down and will do my best to get the answers. I leave today, punch floats will be on Tuesday. Hopefully I will report back that evening, just depends on how tired I am from the drive. Wish me luck guys!

If you happen to not have left yet for your trip, could you also just confirm with him the average healing time and likelihood of hyperpigmentation or similar adverse effects(although I know it will vary based on skin type and from person-to-person)?

Good luck, and thanks smile.gif

I'm also interested in what chloe said, does he do light dermabrasion?

I am guessing it depends on the scars but i am not sure if the procedure needs to be of certain depth to work.

Also what does he think about derma being invasive or last resort?

Safe trip!

Oh and I'm wondering... With all of us "Dr. Y patients", and his money out of his marvelous hands, Misty, suggest an Acne.org Mansion for us to hang out! Really.. lol... wink.gif Well, maybe his mansion, and we get to have exclusive privileges. Yay.

I concur w/WPS. I don't see it where you'd need 23 from your pictures. But anyways, hope it was a pleasant experience for you. The big D is next, good luck. smile.gif

Okay guys...I'm taking this slow today so bear with me.

These pictures are BIG, but I wanted you to be able to see the details, including my huge pores...lol. Please ignore the little dots beneath my eyes, that is petechiae (tiny broken blood vessels) caused by my wonderful night of vomiting. :sick: :mrgreen:

You can also get a good look at how the TCA CROSS spot looked after almost 2 months.

If you look on the punch right picture you can see a tiny sutured area near my eye. Dr. Y had to do an excision because the 1 mm graft got stuck in the instrument, but it is so tiny it's really not that big of a deal. I will post all the procedure details in a bit.
