Any Ideas For Treatment?

Recommended Posts

I have some pretty deep scarring on my left cheek. I believe they're icepick scars? I started a thread a week or so ago, but these pictures show the problem a lot better.

Any ideas what kind of treatment would be best to treat or improve this type of scarring? Whether it be surgical, comsmetic, or even things that I could do from home, like diet etc. Also, I'm a heavy smoker, so could that be having any impact at all?

I'm really desperate and willing to try pretty much anything, so any type of response would be appreciated!

My scarring is similar, possibly worse... i don't know what to do either. *sits here and waits for someone else to answer*

I tried chemical peels but I think that just helped with some hyper-pigmentation. I just ordered a derma roller online and going to see if it helps me without making me break out more.

I think if you take care of the biggest scars - it will look a lot better. There also seems to be fairly few and they're quite isolated.

I would try doing a combo of mild subcision+filler and possibly tca cross (make sure to try this on 1-2 of them first.) If that doesn't work in your shoes I would just consider excising the few big ones.

Subcision + Filler and Dermarolling for your deeper rolling scars. TCA cross for your icepicks and few boxscars. I can see 80% improvement with your skin.

Thanks for the reply!

It does look a lot worse in person as my camera's not up to much.

Is 80% realistic to hope for?
