What kind of scarring do I have ??

Recommended Posts

What type of scarring do I have ? Feels like I’ve been microneedling for so long and while I do see an improvement, I still have so much scarring left so what kind of scarring is this and what the best way to target them?

@ExclusiveSet Hi there, I see lots of icepicks - scarred pores which need tca cross, some rolling scars which need many sessions of subcision with some filler, some boxcars which need rf needling and co2 laser if you need a boost or you can do fraxel 1927nm full density which will work on the large pores as well (energy devices are optional). Hyperpigmentation I would do vascular laser or picosure/picoway which is great for your skin type and makes collagen. You can finish off with a few chemical peels for texture. 

Drs treatments are 3 months apart, you can do derminator or dermastamping monthly between, many treat over 3 years.  

Use nightly: Retin-a or tretinorin(prescription), or Differin (Target/Walmart), The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid (if you can't get the above). Cureology(USA) & Yoderm(USA) provides online prescriptions with customized skin care creams for your concerns, those in UK Dermatica provides the same thing. Apply a moisturizer when your face is dripping wet. Wait 5 minutes for it to dry, and then apply the tretinoin. This cuts down on irritation, you can also skip days of application if it's irritating and you need to build up %. This provides skin turnover - new collagen. To prevent (reds & browns from all Dr-treatments to ethnic skin or to work on current skin discoloration), try PCA hydroquione free gel for Hyperpigmentaion (Amazon) or Cureology/Dermatica includes this in their products if ordered. Using this prevents hyperpigmentation from treatments. Hydroquinone has side effects for some people, natural option as listed above is better or ingredients kojic acid/Konjac and skin lightener ingredients, like Niacinamide by The Ordinary is great for pores and discoloration as well. The Ordinary, Cerave, Eucerin, Dr Sam Bunting Flawless Cleanser, and Acne.org's products are all great options for moisturizers and cleaners without fragrance / dyes / allergens. Sunscreen is a must (for the sensitive use zinc only physical ones)!
