I'm actually struggling to find a doctor to perform subcision on me (Calgary). I've found a number that they say they do it, but they won't consider it until I've gone through a number of laser treatments first. I have no problem with undergoing laser treatments, but I would rather do it after the subcision.

Agreed. I think resurfacing (lasers, dermabrasion, etc.) should be one of the final steps for best results but it's always the first thing recommended. I'm going to work on subcision, TCA cross, microneedling/dermastamping, mild-medium TCA peels, retinoids first and final step fillers if necessary depending on results. I hope you can find someone to work with you! I'm in Toronto. I had one laser treatment a while ago and it didn't really do anything but I've heard you need multiple. Also, if any excisions or punch grafts are required best done prior to resurfacing so the new scar can be blended. Let me know how it goes. |::)
