Shallow Indented Scar On Centre Of Nose

I have been scouring the internet for some viable options/success stories for treating such a scar. I am very disheartened that it would appear that there is little about treating nose scars. I am seriously depressed and devastated with this scar, that I obtained about 5 weeks ago (and In addition to this scar, I have a scarred pore and one older scar on my nose too.), but for some reason the new scar is making me depressed, perhaps because of the location. I am planning on pulling out all the stops with the hopes of finding something that works. I am going to try fillers, fraxel and whatever else. My first attempts are going to be Fraxel and maybe filler. After this I will look into needling. I have found two places where I live that do needling with a tattoo gun, but honestly, the sounds of that seriously freak me right out.

I went to the doctor 4 weeks ago and had a Vbeam to take out the redness, with little success.

I then decided to spot treat the nose with a series of Fraxel Restore, despite all the naysayers out there, I decided I am going to try it. I went for my first Fraxel Restore last week and will be going every 3 weeks.

After the Fraxel I had very little swelling and no peeling so I am going to insist on either upping the settings or switching to Fraxel Repair or to another Laser.

I also asked about getting filler. The doctor said it would not fill correctly because there is a pore right smack in the centre of the scar so he thinks it will not work. I am going to ask again to at lease try it and I am going for a second opinion to a Dermal Filler specialist. I seriously do not care what it is going to cost. I want it fixed.

In order to feel somewhat normal I ordered Dermaflage. I had high hopes, but my scar is too shallow for this product. I think it may work on someone with the patience and perhaps deeper scars. In my search for something to "fill" the hole...I discovered that Sudden Change Eye Serum,( sounds insane but I am desperate), when a tiny drop is applied to the scar/indent, it covers and fills it enough to not be so noticable. Sounds nuts but hey...it kinda works.

I will keep a diary and post my success or faliures. I am also keeping a weekly photo diary but I am kinda nervous about posting pics. I may post some if I get some resolve.

Did you have any problems finding someone who would spot treat a scar? I'm looking into spot treating for the couple of scars that I have but didn't know if they do that. If I have to pay for the whole face then that's something I'm willing to do to get some treatment. I bought some dermaflage as well, it didn't work for the intended scar I was looking to use it on but it does work pretty well for another one on my other cheek. I feel since my scarring is not too bad compared to some of the photos I've seen on here, that I can get some pretty good results just focusing on single scars with higher fraxel settings. I had some excisions done and that brought two scars less indented and the plastic surgeon shaped them more along a natural smile line. Now I am looking to go over it with fraxel until I feel I have reached my maximum results.

I did not have any trouble only because I have been going to this doctor for quite a few years for other things...smoothbea, ipl and I have had previous Fraxel treatments on my cheeks. I think a reputable place will spot treat. My doctor is actually only zapping the scar on my nose. i am not sure if he feels sorry for me or what, but he is really nice to do it. Perhaps it was me getting all teary eyed in the chair. :(

So, I made an appt with a Cosmetic/Plastic surgeon, appt in a week to get a second opinion regarding filler. I explained I was getting fraxel done and they suggested waiting untim after the treatments were complete to come in....however....if the fraxel does not work, I want peace of mind knowing I can get filler. Yes....obsessive....but I do not care. Fingers crossed everything works out.

So, i opted out of the appt with the cosmetic surgeon regarding fillers....for now. The scar is still really new and has been improving since the first fraxel. Today I went for Fraxel #2 and a Selphyl treatment. I have another Fraxel in exactly 3 weeks. The Selphyl treatment was relatively painless, my blood was taken and then the DR injected into 2 acne scars on my nose and applied it topically after my Fraxel treatment. I will post about improvements, should any occur. :)
