I have always had oily acne prone skin and also with cystic acne. I have one scar in particular that bothers me more than any other and it's an ice pick and it's right on my cheek bone. I also have one on my nose that bothers me pretty bad. This past year I went to the dermatologist and he gave me spironolactone and tazorac. The spironolactone helped a lot with the cystic acne. He then had me do dermapen. I had 3 treatments before I realized I was blowing $200 everytime and it wasn't ever going to fix my problems. Then the dermatologist did excision on my cheek scar. Had 2 stitches and week later they came out and it looked like he hadn't sewn it up properly in my opinion but he wouldn't try it again. Then we did 3 laser treatments (Idk what kind) and they did nothing. Then he did subcision and laser. Then had me come back in a week and did fillers for my cheek and nose scars. I think the cheek scar looks about 25% better. Maybe. Do I have any other options at this point? Any recommendations for doctors or plastic surgeons for this in Eastern North Carolina?

Images- Left is after 1st dermapen treatment, 2nd is 1 week after excision, 3rd is a couple weeks after excision, 4th is after a laser, and 5th is immediately after subcision, and 6th is after filler.

what filler did you have ? just take it easy on your skin, its been through alot. if anything it looks like your scar has improved. try single needles from owndoc with infadolan. i am working on a stubborn scar EXACTLY like yours, except its right above my lip !. takes time to heal ! im 2 years in already.
