@Notokel This is the reason for TCA Cross. To raise the floor of the icepick scar through several treatments and then do tca peels or erbium resurfacing for surface texture. You can't just do one treatment of tca cross by the way it takes several. Then your resurface the surface texture as I stated.

Yes, I remember you. You have incredible improvement in late autumn. Would like to see updates.

I dunno why people complain about the widening of the scar. If you think about it, the scar bed is being pushed up from below due to new collagen. This will naturally cause friction to the diameter of the scar--hence the widening. Now had the scar become wider but not shallower, then that would be problematic. But in most cases, the scars would have looked shallower in depth, despite being wider.

TCA CROSS will give you the best results. Your treatments are doing just fine. Push on with your TCA, I note on your cheeks you do have atrophic areas, possibly filler at the end can help. When your specialist is doing the Infini, they can reduce the PD (pulse duration) and also the level to say 3-4 , and use a 3 mm setting, This will treat the hard lumpy areas shaped like a V  (raised hypertrophic scars)- your dermatologist will know what to do, namely drip some A 40= A 20 Kenalog in this area. This will sort out the raised scars and soften this area. Otherwise, great progress.

@Notokel .  Your temples look great.  Honestly a huge improvement there.  Was this just from three sessions?  Do you think adding say another 3 infini sessions could keep filling the scars in with good results? Edited by thepwhisp

I've been highly skeptical of Infini, but these results are very compelling.


Well Infini really can't be any worse than lasers. Very nice results here.
