Ice Pick Scar On Nose Tip

Recommended Posts

Hi I have an ice pick scar on the tip of my nose that really has upset my confidence and my life. I'm wondering if anyone has had any success in improving a nose tip scar and by what method. I've read that the nose is hard to treat and I've also heard the opposite. So has anyone had any success?

Whatever you do stay away from lasers!!! I tried Fraxel restore and I we'd up with more ice pick scars. I think this is a really hard problem to solve. From what I've read the nose is the hardest place to fix scars. I have many scars and lots of enlarged pores. My nose is a true mess.

I'm considering tca cross done by a professional. I've read a few success stories with that method on the nose tip. but I'm skeptical. I'm terrified to make it worse. also possibly single needling.

Anyone have experience with either of those being done on the nose tip?

Hi there. I also have a nose scar, an icepick scar at the upper left side of my nasal fold i guess. Any updates here? I heard that the nose might respond well with TCA cross 50% but I also read that it could cause deeper scars. So please be extremely careful if you want to try this and do lots of research.

I was also able to chat with a OP here who had nose scars, different ones like icepicks and also made the texture of his nose not smooth. He said that the texture improved after many months of TCA crossing, but the indents, if not very minimal, did not actually heal.

Please keep us updated, let us not lose hope. We are all fighting.

Did he mean the texture of the normal skin on his nose improved or the texture of the scared skin? I wonder if the scar improved just not the deepest most center of the ice pick. Is that what he meant about the indents not healing? or is the indents from applying tca? I worry that whatever method used be it tca cross or laser or whatever, that improvement might mean shallower but wider. does anyone know if thats true?

Any update?

I also have an ice pick scar on my nose tip so I know what you're going through (current pic).  I am  myself wondering about CTA Cross. I worry my scar is too wide, and also how scabby or discouloured the healing process will be. Still looking for proof of what it might look like.

Yes, it's probably the most marked improvement so far. It's been exactly two weeks now and I'd rate it as 50-60% compared to its previous state. Right after the Second subcision, the improvement looked like 90% though, which probably means some of the nose skin retethered as the days went by, or maybe it simply was the swelling.

I did get bruising and hyperpigmentation, and my scar is still red after the procedure, which makes it more noticeable.

Despite the improvements, my scar is still noticeable under several lightings though. It's a really minor scar, probably about 1 mm in diameter and now around 0.1-0.2 mm. depth (i'd say before any treatments it was around 0.4-0.5 in depth). However, it's incredibly noticeable for its size, probably due to its location right on the nose tip. If it were in any other part of my face, I'd probably leave it alone at this point.

I will get a third treatment in about a week. Will let you know how it goes with pictures if you're interested. Edited by abraxas21

So far I'd rate the first treatment success at 20% and second treatment at 50%. It's hard to tell, though. Images can be deceiving, especially considering that I tend to look at my scar it everyday on multiple ocassions. However, the way I know it improved is that I am not able to feel the dent to the touch whereas before I definititely could.

Anyhow, I had a third subcision on my nose tip scar yesterday, 29 days after the second treatment. We'll see how it goes.

Hey i have the exact same scar as u but my scar is slightly towards the right side.
I had my first subcision done bout a month ago. The doctor said he saw 30% improvement. I would really appreciate if u can update me bout how much your scar has improved. My doc is also adding fillers to it. Because of its location its very noticable even its as small as yours. I hope this works out for u well♡ Edited by Emaan4262

Thanks for the wishes. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

May I ask you how you obtained your scar? Was it acne or something else?

after many years how would you rate your experience? 

How did the pitted acne scar on your nose heal  0 - 100% ?
