Laviv - Should I Fly From Germany To Us? Is It Worth It?

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow sufferers:

I have been on these boards for several years now but never posted as I had nothing new to add. I have rolling scars with tissue loss. One deep scar is due to my dermatologist use of cortisone shot on me for cystic acne. I have had 6 derma rollers, subission, TCA and have improved my scars. However, I want to know if LAVIV will help. I am too scared to get a laser at this point.

Thank you, Linda

Hey Linda - I have the same thing; a deep rolling scar that I'm fairly sure was due to a cortisone shot at least in part. Anyway I had a consultation with a doctor here about Laviv and he said to me it wasn't a starting point because it's expensive and unpredictable. However, since you have already done other things and want more improvement he would probably say it is a good idea. He said it would be $3-$4,000. I have spoken with someone on this board who did it with good results. Another thing to consider is you would have to fly multiple times. First is the biopsy, then a series of injections....or so I've been told. Where on your face is the deep rolling scar? Mine is on the side of my chin.

I know but I work in public relations, so I do a lot of speeches to 200 plus crowds. So if four trips to the US is the price I would have to pay for security, so be it. If anyone has had LAVIV I would love to hear from them. Isolagen I read was hit or miss. I would do fat transfer combined with LAVIV. I have emailed Dr Willliam Boss, the founder as said I would want both procedures. I would only go to him as I read Isolagen was very much dependent on the doctor doing it.

Has anyone seen good before and afters on LAVIV? THANKS so much for those who have replied to this thread. I am trying to stay positive an not get caught up int he wave of hype that surrounds most procedures.

If Laviv doesn't work at least I will have a million miles with Lufthansa to go with the huge hole in my pocket . Sigh. : )

Personally - if you think that fillers would help you - I would try with the non permanent stuff first. If you get a good temporary result - then you can go try laviv and hope that it gives similar permanent results. If the temp injections don't help - then I don't see how laviv would? It should only be like $500 for a syringe of the temp filler.
