Crossroads About Next Action For My Derm Appt.?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Have some serious acne scars on lower

left cheek, not much elsewhere on face.

It was from my 20's before accutane shut

my serious acne down like a light switch.

Anyway, in last 15 years I started with collagen injections (useless), co2 laser

(minimally effective), THEN just 2.5 years ago a vampire facelift (platelet rich plasma with hyaluronic acid fillers= minimally effective), Subcision with 2 units of artfill

(moderately effective), self derma-rolling

(minimally effective).

I'd honestly say i had ALL of the above to

give me a 30% improvement :-/

I have an appt. with a pretty good derm in a bit over a week now and Im just not sure where I should take things from here (AND SO IS THE QUESTION FOR THE FORUM)??

After reading above what might any of you see and or recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Binga,

Thats kind of what I was thinking. However, I had one subcision already 2 years ago followed by 2 units of artfill a month later.

How many subcisions have you heard of having for serious scarring for correction??

Since u are in florida talk to dr. bafitis or travel to LA to talk to dr. rahimi. They get good results.

Ok, see above photos now of left lower

cheek which is by far worst scarring on

face. I took under worst possible lighting of course notably in first picture.

I welcome all commentary and as

previously stated I had 1 subcision

and 1 treatment of artfill.

I sincerely appreciate ALL feedback

and commentary. Thanks in advance.

I took one more wider picture as

i did not want people to think my jaw line

was a scar (earlier photos were hard to interpret with borders of cheek

and face)

Thanks again all.
