Lost - Need An Experienced Doctor In The Uk

Recommended Posts


I am a 26 year old male, with acne scarring on the area between the corners of my mouth and the bottom of my ears. I am trying to look for an experienced doctor who has all of the treatment options available, and who can assess my scars and determine a treatment plan (without cold-selling lasers for everything).

I would describe my scars as a little complicated - on the right cheek, i have rolling scars which have aligned in such a way as to cause a dimple when I smile. If it were exactly the same on the other cheek, I'd be fairly content. But on the other cheek a boxcar scar is located closer to my mouth, and has started to form it's own crease, which looks pretty ugly.

In addition to these, I have a few other boxcar scars here and there, but sometimes I find it hard to tell which are chickenpox scars and which are acne, so I have no real issues with those.

My research thus far suggests that the rolling scars may be dealt with my dermarolling, and I have no idea about the boxcar scar now nesting inside a young nasolabial fold (dermastamp? subcision? excision?).

I would like to see a good doctor in a fairly short period of time, before the boxcar buries itself deeper inside a crease, which I imagine would be much more difficult to get rid of.

While I am looking for some advice on which treatment, my main goal here is to find an experienced doctor who can get to work quickly (while I'm off work).

Thank you
