Deep Rolling (I Think?) Scars, Not Sure What To Do

Recommended Posts

I've just been so happy my acne was gone I didn't care about the scars. I'm not feeling the best atm and when the right light hit me I was really bothered for the first time in a while. I used to just say fuck it haha.

Anyways, what do you guys think? What should be done? Preferably something that wouldn't take me out for more than a week. I've already had accutane and braces and horrible acne and I just want to get over all this shit haha. post-185125-0-25318900-1348455321_thumb.post-185125-0-16140800-1348454694_thumb.post-185125-0-35344700-1348454655_thumb.

Have you heard of the dermaroller? I had a friend who had great success with it. I don't know if that's what you're talking about in the title box, but they're fairly inexpensive and provide great success among many people with deep scarring. Look at some reviews online and perhaps some youtube videos, there's a lot of info out there, maybe this is something you'd want to try.

I have the same type of scarring..most of which I acquired during accutane as I was clearing up (which I have actually not finished, im on my 4th/6th month).

I have just started researching treatments and I am pretty settled on doing subcision coupled with fraxel restore or repair or fillers(I have olive skin so repair may not be viable for me). I cant tell your skin color with that lighting.

I feel as if subcision is one of the more safer and cheaper options toward improving our type of scars, which are rolling scars. Look up a post on this forum called "Man in the mirror" and a post by a username "Greg" who have both undergone subcision with good results. Also look up the thread "Asian doing Mixto"...the user there also has similar scarring and had great results with subcision and Mixto lasr.

I know it sucks..I am still trying to come to terms with myself too...but keep hope that there are treatments out there!

GOOD LUCK

I too have a similiar issue... yea it does suck! I am going to several consultations with an acne scar specialist, 2 facial plastic surgeons and another plastic surgeon with much experience in laser. My first one is tommorow, if you would like I will tell u what they say.

I'd certainly be interested in hearing what they suggest.

Yup... here u go. I saw a facial PS today who recomended ablative YAG lasering and a newer technology know as Ultherapy to stimulate collagen growth. Basically treating from the inside and the out. Very interesting... He says that he has never used the ultherapy to treat acne scarring specifically but has done 320 Ultherapy sessions and has noticed a decrease in scar apperance in patients who did have pockmarks but were essentially treated for other things.. wrinkles, neck drooping etc.

Silicone injections will work for the deeper rolling scars but you have to go to a very experiecned doctor. Dr. Orentriech in NYC is the best.

If it helps at all, you're really good looking, I hope the scars don't make you feel ugly

Try a dermaroller, if that doesn't work (give it a lot of time) then other options such as subcision are a possibility. best of luck
