I just had subcision with laser and prp!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe I finally did it! I just had my first subcision done along with prp and laser! It was done by a medical doctor I know. I'm swollen right now! He gave me a great break on the price. I couldn't pass it up. He suggested up to 5 treatments. I'm really excited. I have been tormented by these scars for years and years. I will let you all know how it goes. I have no photos to show.

Which Doctor did you go to?   Was it Dr. Rappaport?   I remember you going to see him for a consultation.

He is a doctor I know personally. Well, kind of personally. He's not a plastic surgeon but he does do subcision and other procedures. It's a big step for me. I don't look that great. He said I should get about 5 subcisions. I am really hoping and praying for good results.

Are you planning on using the suction treatment on day 3 for your scars that have  been subcise?    This should help in keeping the skin level  up rather than the deeper scars  re-tethering down once the micro-swelling goes down from recovery.

also  I forgot to add which type of Laser treatment treatment are  you having done?

I forgot to add something more.

I wanted to do the suction treatment but my doctor didn't know about it. Is there a place I can purchase a suction device to do it on my own?
My doctor used a co2 partial ablative laser.  I think that's what he did. I am going to get the exact details via email. I know I should know. I will post photos.

These photos really don't emphasize the indentations on my skin. I will have to take better photos.s2.jpg.08f363ee9eaaa42cfe882dd004cfa4d9.

As I stated I really have to stop smoking for the next few procedures.
Will I be sorry I did not do the suction? Is there any place I can purchase the suction device?

jashun49 thank you for the information.

I actually think this subcision worked! I don't know if it's due to swelling. But the swelling is going down and I can see an improvement on my scars. It's only going to get better. I HAVE TO STOP SMOKING FOR THE NEXT SUBCISIONS I GET!

The doctor claimed I had box scars. I always was told I had rolling scars.

This is what he used: CO2 fractional laser resurfacing with PRP and subcision of acne scars

Question. I am using Aquaphor. Should I apply this after I put on sunscreen or before?

I'm a bit down. One larger scar is showing up again. I think I see an improvement. But not much. I am smoking and I know I really have to STOP smoking for the collagen to build up. Will the collagen start building up within the up and coming weeks? I am older so...

It will take time, they do appear again but they should rise in the coming months. Take lots of vitamin c for smoking depletes it and you need vitamin c to get this to work. Eat healthily. Exercise. Hike. Or whatever. 

Try to put this aside and then reevaluate in 2 months. Usually this is where most see the difference, for me I saw it 3+ months. It is not an overnight thing it takes time for your body to create collagen. 

I'm sure you will see results but it might take a bit of time.

Thanks! Should I also use vitamine C cerum on my skin? How about peptides? I will take a lot of vitamin C and drink orange juice. I will also eat right, excercise and try to stop smoking .
